Going Bald or Have a Receding Hairline? You Need to Buzz it Off!

Here is the deal…losing your hair sucks! It is MUCH better to have a full head of hair if you are a guy.

Women do prefer a full head of hair the majority of the time. There is no getting around it!

So what do you do if you are losing your hair? I got three words for you:


Ljunberg Calvin Klein

Frederick Ljunberg…Soccer Player for Team Sweden and Calvin Klein Model

See…Frederick Ljunberg has the right idea. His hair is receding and he went for the buzz cut. He is a case of someone who actually looks better with the buzz cut. He kind of looks like a freak with a full head of hair.

Avoid the George Costanza Look!

Remember George Costanza from Seinfeld? He was completely bald on top and had hair just on the side and back of his head. If you are over 50 and don’t really care about your appearance, then this can work for you.

If you are younger then you really don’t want to shoot for this look at all!

But Don’t Women Prefer Guys With Hair?

Yes…their preference is for guys with thick heads of hair! Their second preference as far as hair goes is bald or buzzed. The look they dislike the most is the “partially bald look” or bad hair plugs.

If you have long hair in some places and huge bald spots…you need to reconsider your hair style!

Quite a Few Women Do Find Many Bald Guys Attractive

Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, David Beckham, Andre Agassi, Bruce Willis, and Kelly Slater have all buzzed or shaved their heads at some point in their careers. Some of these guys aren’t going bald, but still looked great with shaved heads.

Kelly Slater

Kelly Slater is an Example of a Guy Who is Going All The Way Bald

He is the perfect role model for you guys who are seriously losing your hair. You either need to buzz it extremely close or shave it with a razor. Kelly is also proof that women can find bald guys attractive…he is consistently voted as the sexiest male in professional surfing.

Do you think he would be as attractive with the George Costanza look? Of course not.

How Short Should You Buzz Your Hair?

How short you go, depends upon how much hair you have lost. If you just have a bit of a receding hairline, go with a “number 2” on the clippers. If you have some serious thinning hair, but no massive bald spots go with a “number one” on the clippers (that would give you hair about the length of Frederick Ljunberg in the photo above).

If you have serious bald areas on your head use the clippers “straight up” with no attachments (that would give you hair as short as Kelly Slater in the picture above).

Don’t Do “The Fade” or “Flat Top” if You are Going Bald!

When you buzz your hair off, make sure you keep it all the same length all over your head. You don’t want to do a military-style fade, where the sides and back are super buzzed and it gets thicker on top.

You really want to buzz your hair like the male models and the celebrities do…buzz it evenly all over…”the fade” went out of style in the early 90’s.

Are You Nervous to Take the Plunge and “Buzz it Off”?

You should be! It is kind of a weird deal buzzing your hair off. It will take you a little while to get used to the way you look. You WILL look drastically different.

In fact you will begin to feel a bit different too…in a good way! I’m actually much more confident now that I’m bald. What I’ve found is that LESS older women find me attractive, but MORE younger women dig my look…I’d say that is a great trade!

Do You Have the “Guts” to Do It?

Again…if you aren’t balding, you should flaunt your awesome head of hair (consider yourself lucky, thank your parents, etc.)! If you are balding you should seriously consider buzzing all of it off.

It is a big step, but one that will most likely make you more attractive to women.

  1. I have the Scandinavian reseeding hairline.
    For many years I wore hats to hide it.
    Finally about year plus I BUZZED it all off!
    It was so thinning & fine hairs.
    Now it looks much better. Sometimes I shave
    With panasonic face electric shaver for different
    Look & feel. I maintain with EvenCut circler hair
    Cutter by conair. Just swirl around head ,without
    a guard on,for close cropped look,& SO EASY.
    Hope this helps you guys on the fence , take the
    Plunge & GO FOR IT, you won’t be disappointed !!!

  2. I’ve just turned 25, been losing my hair for a couple years but have tried to hide it with a kind of comb over thinking it looked okay, I went out for my birthday and seeing the photos of myself and how stupid my hair actually looked I took the plunge today and buzzed it number 0 all over, get a huge sense of freedom whilst you’re shaving but be prepared for a shock afterwards, it’s extremely different, I’m nervous as hell about showing the world especially family and friends but I’ve just got to accept it! Good luck if you go for the clippers! It’s worth it just for the relief

  3. Really wish I had buzzed my hair off earlier!! I had been thinking about it for 10 years and my hair (or lack of it!) was on my mind 24 hours a day! I have done/cut it a couple of months ago and the moment I did it it was like cutting a stretched elastic band, the stressed tension has gone and I don’t even think about my hair anymore!!!! And it has given me so much confidence back!!
