You Will Need
- A barber
- A new hairstyle
- A hat
- Bald-spot spray concealer (optional)
Go to a barber or hairstylist
Visit your local barber or stylist – they're masters at concealing the problem. If you're losing hair from the crown of your head, try a buzz cut, which will help blend in thinning hair with the rest.
If you're losing hair from the front of your head, ask for a textured crop haircut, which uses uneven layers at the receding hairline to blend everything together.
New 'do not doing enough? Pick up a spray bald-spot concealer that best matches your hair color. It could either be surprisingly effective, or end your love life forever.
Invest in some hats
Don a hat, and buy a few that suit your face. Contrary to popular belief, wearing hats doesn't cause hair loss. They're just an easy, stylish cover.
Angle your bald spot away from lights
Tilt your head away from bright lights to conceal your pate and avoid a reflection off your bald spot. Take a page from vampires and stick to dark, romantically lit locales.
Display confidence in your look
Whether you've shaved it all off, or you're clinging to what you've got left, hold your head high. Confidence is more attractive than even the thickest head of hair.
