Should I Shave My Head?

Shaving your head is a personal decision, and the truth is that we all have different reasons to do so.  Some men think about getting this style when their hair starts thinning or when the receding line is just too far back to keep it under control, other men simply want to shave their heads to get a clean look without having to worry about combing their hair every single day; and other men simply don’t like how their hair looks!

To answer this question, first we have to start thinking about comfort.  “Will I feel confident and comfortable having a shaved head?” Give this question a thought and make your decision.  If your answer is a clear YES, then you are in the right path.

What’s the Shape of Your Head?

Once I interviewed legendary MMA fighter and bald look supporter Bas Rutten, and I asked what tips he had for men considering shaving their heads.  He told me that the single most important thing to look good with this look is to have a great skull shape!

Bas isn’t wrong (and even if he was I would think twice before telling him that!).  A nice round head will look better than a head with slight protrusions on the top or the sides.  Luckily, this is not as important as walking with self confidence.  Trust me, a lot of people will start commenting on your style – especially if this is the first time you’ve shaved – but don’t worry, the main thing here is to make the look yours.  Own it, and the World will make you the owner!

In the end this is a personal decision. I started shaving my head 5 years ago and haven’t looked back since!
