How to Obtain the Bald Look for Men
If you are a guy and are beginning to lose hair or your hair-line is receding then it is the right time to shave your head. The days of guys having comb-overs or hair-pieces are over. It is now very cool to be bald. A guy who shaves his head is a guy who is confident & unafraid of others reactions. So now guys, it is time to get that hair cut and have your head shaved smooth.
Have your hair buzzed down to a "zero" with clippers.It would be best to get a barber to do this initially, however, if you feel confident enough you can do this yourself if you have a set of hair clippers at home.
Shave your head down smooth.Make sure that you have a good quality razor (ie: Gillette Mach III or similar) with a clean, sharp blade. Decent shave gel or foam. A hand-held mirror (this helps you to see the back of your head when shaving). A clean towel. After-shave balm or moisturiser.
Get your head soaked with Hot, but not boiling water.Let the water absorb a little on the scalp.
Apply shaving gel or foam & make sure you apply it liberally all over your scalp.Leave the foam on my head for a minute or so before shaving. I find that this helps quite a bit when it comes to the shave.
Next, being very careful, shave in the direction of hair growth or as it is fairly commonly known as, "shaving with the grain".Do not press too hard on the blade, but allow the razor to "glide" on your scalp. If you really want to, you can do a second shave in the opposite direction, called "against the grain", which produces a much smoother result, but remember to re-apply shave gel or foam.
After the shave, make sure that you rinse your head with cold water.This action helps open up the pores in your scalp & also helps to soothe the skin after the shave.
Apply post-shave balm / moisturiser.This soothes & protects the scalp.
The next step is maintenance:To keep your head smooth, it is advisable to shave your head every day just as you would normally shave your face every day.
Finally, for your initial head shave it would be advisable to have a barber or hairdresser do the deed.You will love the whole experience, guaranteed.
