I started balding when I was 21 years old. My hairline began receding and the bald spot at the crown of my head started to show. I was devastated and embarrassed. At first, I grew my hair and combed it forward to hide the receding hairline. Later on, I saw a picture of myself with this hairstyle and immediately decided I'd rather cut my hair short and own my baldness than look like I'm trying to hide it (rather unsuccessfully). Owning it was the best thing I could've done for myself. I began to feel confident in my appearance quite quickly. I've kept my hair short or shaved ever since and I know it looks good!
For lots of men, going bald can be a tough reality to accept. I know how it feels. I know it's challenging. But in fact, most men who embrace their baldness look great and feel confident. They are style makers, pioneers, adventurers, moguls and the mighty.
