Shaved Head Style

The male grooming market is white hot these days. It seems that every time you turn around there's a new shampoo, shave cream, or styling product for men being introduced. One growing segment of the hair care market is aimed squarely at the man who lacks hair. Whether bald by choice or from male pattern baldness, there is a slew of new grooming products for men with a bald or shaved head to help keep their chrome dome looking clean, slick and shiny.

Having a smooth bald head has become very popular in resent years, especially when basketball super star Michael Jordan showed off his bald head. Just take a look at some male celebrities who are sporting the bald head style such as John Travolta, Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, and even some women celebrities wanted to try the look (Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore).

A shaved head is a good option for guys with thinning hair or those that wants to make a bold fashion statement. For some men having a shaved head can accent masculine features like a strong jaw or chin. But before you rush into the bathroom to shave your head keep in mind the bald head style is not for every man. The best candidates for the bald head style are men with a well balanced round shaped head, not pointy or flat across the back. Like a hair style a shaved head must fit the shape of your head, face shape and facial features. As well as the size of your ears, length of the neck and body size in order to look balanced from all points of view.

Of course, the first step in maintaining a great looking melon is to use proper shaving technique and the right products for a healthy looking scalp. Before attempting to shave your head for the first time, I strongly recommend consulting your hair stylist to help determine if this look will complement your face and head shape and show you how to shave your head. It’s not all that much different then shaving your face. While some women find a shaved head a thing of beauty other may see it as a turn off. No matter, hair grows and you won’t believe just how fast it does until you find yourself shaving it everyday. Now that’s something to consider if your up for this new look.
