What to do now that you’ve shaved your head? Now that the hair is gone, there is not much to style. Or is there?
It’s not uncommon for guys who shave their heads for the first time to feel a bit odd. They are not accustomed to their new style. It get’s better over time. So how can things be spiced up?
The bald look can be a bland look. And surely you don’t want to look like a clone of other bald men.
Your style needs more character, more things going on. Your style needs facial hair.
Luckily, if you shave your head because you are going bald, you are most likely blessed with thick facial hair growing abilities, and this is the perfect time to put them to the test.
Grow some form of a beard. Any kind. From a mustache to the full on burly grizzly beard. You decide.
There is good reason for it as well. Doing so will balance your face by drawing away the attention from your bald head, and give you more personality.
Not convinced? Let’s take a look at some examples here:
It’s clear which side is winning.
Now that you are hooked, although I know most of you here are just looking for inspiration since you always knew bald heads and beards are a match made in heaven, let’s talk about the options.
There are more than a thousand and one styles for the bald and bearded man. Take a look at some the classic examples here, pick up your trimmer and get creative.
Bald with beard styles
The mustache is a smaller piece of facial hair, but it’s very distinguished. It makes you look serious and frankly, demands respect.
The mustache is perfect for the corporate world, law enforcement, or any other environment with ‘old-fashioned views’ on style and a strict dress code.
Deciding to go with the mustache will give others the impression you are serious, and professional type of man. A mustache man.
Next, the goatee. There are hundreds of various goatee styles, but it all boils down to the full goatee and the classic goatee. While they share the name, they give a much different vibe and have a separate feel.
The full goatee is a classic goatee connected with a mustache.
Who comes first to mind when you think of the full goatee? It often construction men, bikers, corporate world business men, evil twins from a parallel universe. The full goatee is the jack of all trades in the world of facial hair. You can elegantly drive it in your Mercedes to your desk job, only to ride it on your Harley the next day like a rugged biker.
Bottom line is, you can’t go wrong with the full goatee. You should give it a try.
The classic goatee. The mustache under your lips. It’s often seen on guys who are into rock, metal and punk music, are in the stoner culture, or work in the IT department. It’s usually accompanied by an eccentric style and is popular within the younger generation.
The classic goatee is a rock solid option. It looks super good on bald heads and should be the least you should grow.
Heavy or light, stubble is a great decision for chrome heads. The look is fantastic. The aura is sexy. The attractiveness is godly. But it might not work well in every environment.
There are still prejudices against the stubbly look. So, not an option for every office.
The full beard
The last is the full beard. Take a look at what it does:
The beard is the counter to baldness. It’s the bread and butter of facial hair. It’s a great dress for any face, and a great companion for any head, regardless if it’s bald or not.
You can get very creative with it. You can leave it longer, or just keep it short and corporal.
Hell, you don’t even have to shave your head if you rock the full beard. You can even sport a receded hairline or a short horseshoe haircut with a beard. It’s just that good.
You can’t go wrong with the classic full beard.
It’s simple. To look good, be bald with a beard.
