Receding Hairline, How To Cope With Your Receding Hairline
For many men, the idea of going bald is one that they have had to think about, whether they started getting a receding hairline or a bald spot before they graduated high school or whether their fathers had one.
The truth is, although it is often parodied in TV or comedy routines, the loss of hair can seriously affect a man's self esteem and confidence in himself.
If you are in the position of being male and losing your hair, however, you'll find that there are quite a few things that you can do.
Although the response of “grow more hair” to complaint of baldness seems quite unsympathetic, you'll find that there is a lot that you can do with the hair that remains on your head if you start thinking about it.
For instance, you'll find that by pairing a receding hairline with a longer growth of hair all around, you'll be able to get a great shaggy cut; the longer hair will fall over your forehead and hide the receding hairline quite well.
You'll also find that the right cut can disguise how much hair you've lost. If you find that your hair is thinning at your temples, you can cut your hair down fairly short and brush it back from your forehead.
When done as a purposeful fashion, this style shows that your hairline is receding and that you don't mind at all. While this might take some getting used to, it can actually look quite sophisticated. To help you with cuts and styling, make sure that you have a good hairdresser on your side.
You'll find that he or she will have some great ideas about your hair, so make sure that you take some time, shop around, and find the one that best matches your tastes and style.
With your hairdresser's assistance, or completely on your own, you'll find that dying your hair can can make it thicker and add more body, hiding the fact that it is thinner than it used to be.
To maximize the natural look, get a color that is just a shade darker than your own, and be aware of what dye can do to the grayer hairs on your head. You'll find that this can be a great way to look and feel younger in general.
Another solution that is open to you is to shave your head completely. This can be a bold statement no matter what industry you work in and you'll find that it really makes you stand out from the crowd.
Discuss it openly, and if you are so inclined crack a few jokes; have some fun with it. Learning to live with your appearance and really like it is something that should be your top priority.
Too many men feel that a bald spot is their biggest problem when the real culprit is low self-esteem, so do your best to love your look, no matter what it ends up being.
