Let’s start at the top. Male pattern baldness and beards, which are stimulated by androgen activity, personify manliness. Most men will face balding and baldness at some point in their lives, although it can vary widely from person to person.

For some men, going bald can be the cause of much angst, and they may seek medical treatment to lessen the impact.

The flip side, however, is that many men who experience male pattern baldness have the ability to grow thick, full facial hair that is worthy of envy. Properly maintaining a beard to help it reach its full potential is something every man should consider. Like many things in a man’s life, however, a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t always going to serve your personal needs and tastes.

Let’s face it; people are visual beings, so looking your best at all times will help you feel better about yourself, enhance the way people perceive you, and even help you succeed in the many areas of your life.

Why I started Balding Beards

I understand that men have a lot of questions when it comes to facial hair, hair loss, grooming, and style. While there’s a lot of easy-to-access information out there, none of it goes into great detail about these topics.

To go beyond basic facts to provide the latest, most detailed, and highest quality information for men who are seeking genuinely relevant answers to their questions.

Grooming and style decoded.

If you’re looking for in-depth information on how to grow a thicker beard, we’ll have it. We’ll explain in detail many elements that go into proper beard maintenance. We understand that hair loss can be of great concern, and we’ll help you deal with it. But we don’t stop there. Want to know how to apply cologne properly? We have you covered. We’ll provide instruction for trimming your mustache the right way, and also discuss the best hair products you need to have in your grooming arsenal.

We’ll guide you through the process of layering your clothes to help you always look your best, as well as offer tips for dressing in a way that enhances your masculinity, choosing from the best clothing brands. We’ll dress you from top to bottom, reviewing the coolest jackets and the most dapper dress shoes.

We’ll also discuss the tools of the trade when it comes to men’s grooming – from beard trimmers, hair clippers, and nose hair trimmers, to products such as beard oil, its ingredients, and how it’s made. Hair and body care don’t just stop there, so neither will we. We’ll offer reviews of the best combs, body groomers, and more. We understand that proper grooming involves a whole-body approach in which no stone should be left unturned.

Men’s grooming, facial hair, and hair loss remain our focus, but we’ll also regularly review products such as luxury watches, men’s wallets, and aviator sunglasses. While many of our product reviews are geared toward men, our information on hair loss usually contains information for both sexes.

Affiliate Disclosure: We’ll regularly review and compare products related to facial hair, hair loss, and men’s grooming. The reviews will contain links from affiliate links — mostly notably Amazon — from which we receive a small commission. We also make money through Google ads. You can read more about it on our privacy policy page. We’re open and honest about where our money comes from. While we’ll always be grateful if you buy through our affiliate links, we’ll never pressure you to do so.

You can also be assured that we put a lot of time and effort into researching all of the products we review, and in the vast majority of cases, we’ve either used the product and/or continue to use it today.

As men, we like to have fun, too, and we’ll often take a light-hearted – yet still informative – approach to what we write for this website.

Balding Beards is updated with new articles about two times each month, and our existing guides and product reviews are updated regularly. Our goal is to provide men with the latest and most relevant and recent information available.

We also run a footwear resource website Footwear Ox – another obsession of ours. If you care about your feet, be sure to check it out.
