“Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man―there’s your diamond in the rough.”
Many people think that being bald is very limiting, in the sense that you cannot be very fashionable. But, that is not true at all. Bald men have an advantage over those who have a full head of hair. How? Well, firstly, they do not have to wake up wondering what their hair looks like, and secondly, they never have to spend time styling their hair to get the perfect look. They can indulge in numerous facial hair styles, and don on a new look every week. All they have to do is zero in on a look that gets the most praise and second looks from all the women around them, and they are set.
Bald men have a variety of beard styles to choose from. The clean-shaven look is an all-time favorite, but some styles have made balding a fashion statement. Don’t believe me? Think about the charming John Travolta, who sported a bald head with a classic goatee in the 2010 movie From Paris with Love, he took the beard and bald look to a different level altogether. Men can look irresistible with a clean-shaven head, and beard, provided they can carry off the look with confidence. This MenWit article lists the different types of beard styles exclusively for bald men.
The classic goatee, is one beard style that goes well with any face shape and bone structure. This beard style exudes self-confidence, a sense of maturity, and oozes sex appeal. If you have a triangular face, this is the best beard style for you. This style is also called ‘The Door Knocker’ and ‘The Van Dyke’.
For those who do not want to sport hair on their cheeks and jawline, the chin strip is the best option. It is a thin strip of hair from the lower lip to the chin. While the rest of the face is clean-shaven. This style of beard helps elongate the face, and makes the wearer look thinner. It is best suited for a round or diamond-shaped face.
Who says only Elvis Presley can carry off those huge sideburns with ease? Mutton chops have made a comeback, especially with bald men. Apart from adding a fuller look to the face, it gives off an bad-boy vibe, which many women find very attractive. This beard style works best with the inverted triangle and oblong face shapes.
A small goatee is perfect for those guys who do not want a full beard, nor a clean-shaven look. For this beard style, all you need to do is grow a soul patch, and a small amount of hair on your chin. Shape it well and keep it trimmed, and you’re all set. This look is best for square and diamond faces, but it also looks amazing on oval and oblong faces.
The chin strap has become immensely popular with a lot of men today since it is very easy to maintain. It goes well with those who have a round as well as angular face. A chin strap gives the wearer a childlike, innocent look. Just remember to shave under your chin, jawline, and your entire neck.
The wide goatee looks very similar to the classic goatee. The difference though, is that it extends towards the sideburns. If you plan to sport this style, keep your sideburns short and trimmed. The wide goatee looks amazing on men who are in their 40s and above. It suits most face shapes, and you can keep it short or long.
A short trimmed beard is very similar to the manicured stubble, only a little longer and more scruffy. Grow your beard to a moderate length, and trim it, keeping it about a centimeter long, whilst giving it a good shape. This style does well with most face shapes.
If you have a chubby face, then the soul patch is the best option for you. It is just a small patch or clump of facial hair, located below the lower lip. It is very convenient and easy to maintain, and can be paired with most beard styles.
The anchor beard is slightly difficult to maintain since it requires a steady hand to keep it in shape. The reason this beard is a favorite among most men is that it makes the face look narrow, and gives you a stronger looking chin.
If you want a look that shows you are carefree, friendly, yet well-groomed, then the manicured stubble is the best option for you. Let your facial hair grow for about a week, and then run your trimmer over it. The manicured stubble looks good with mostly all face shapes.
