- Step 1: Go for it Have confidence in your appearance -- you've lost your hair, not your mojo. Forget the comb-over, roll up the rug, and come to terms with your changing hairline.
- Step 2: Make it smooth Once you've embraced your baldness, go for broke. Either buzz your hair down with an electric trimmer or take it all off with a shaving razor.
- TIP: If you use a razor, use shaving cream to avoid unsightly razor burn.
- Step 3: Shine on Put some effort into your appearance and keep that pate moisturized. Use a product designed to give you a slick sheen, or spread a little body lotion or baby oil on your head daily.
- Step 4: Protect it Wear sunscreen or a hat when you're outdoors to protect your skin from the sun's UV rays, which, in addition to other health risks, can roughen up your head's smooth surface.
- TIP: If you wear a hat, give it some style; you need to rock your cap as much as your bald head.
- Step 5: Get into it Make the most of opportunities to use that smooth surface; on Halloween, go as a well-known bald celebrity, historical figure, athlete, or mascot.
- Step 6: Keep it up Keep up with your grooming and head care -- the secret to rocking any look is owning it and being proud of who you are.
- FACT: The bald eagle became the United States' national bird in 1782.
