It is a wonder why something as small as hair can mean so much to men. In the old times, long thick hair was fertility, power and youth. Some men will end up with low self-esteem and loose confidence because of balding. But, the old times are gone. And nowadays you can spot many famous men who look sexy even though they are bald. They accept and embrace it without attempting to hide it.
A Personal Anecdote
Most men who are balding probably feel very embarrassed about it. They go to the extent of having hair plugs. Though you might be uncomfortable in this situation you may find that you are probably the only person who is concerned about it. Some people you interact with don’t even know that you are bald. You’re supposed to be confident in your skin first before people can take you for who you are. If you notice it people will notice it. On the other hand, if you ignore and accept it, people will too.
Covering the truth
Despite what you see in Hollywood, balding affect about 50% of men by the time they reach 50 according to various studies. What you see on Tv of those always good looking men is not the truth. Hollywood actors are very concerned about their looks. Hey, that is their number 1 selling point. So they will do anything to look good. So, do not be fooled. And just because they are hiding theirs doesn’t mean you have to hide yours.
Regardless of how hard they try to hide it using their money and influence, eventually we get to know the truth. In 1999 for example there was a picture of actor Matthew McConnell going around the internet of him clearly wearing a wig.
Ben Affleck is also stated to have lost his wig while at a party with his friend Vince Vaughn. Obviously he denied the rumors and even ended up doing a commercial for a shampoo company where a woman was pulling her hair. But people already knew much better.
Edward Norton had a shrinking hairline in the movie American History X. And now for some reason it is no more. It is claimed that he has had a transplant which is very likely to be true.
Go with the Flow
Covering up the hair loss may not be the best idea. Well, unless you are a high maintenance star who is able to afford surgery and such you could just use regular methods to look good. Having the hair trimmed or shaved will invariably work for you. It is a common way to go about it, and it works!
On the other hand if you are planning to have surgery, getting wigs or other possible alternatives, it is good that you think twice about it. After surgery it might be difficult to shave because of the scars. So as to get the best hairpiece you may have to part with quite a sum. And treatment drugs can also have side effects. So the best way is to embrace the baldness and keep your cool. You don’t need hair to be happy in life. BOLA TANGKAS
