Are Bald Men the New Sexy?
My husband had a head full of luscious, thick, dark curls when we met which I loved. It grew crazy fast and he had to get haircuts every three weeks to keep it under control. And as much as I loved that hair, I knew that I had to be stoic as fuck in case it ever all fell out.
His ex-wife told him that if he ever went bald, she would leave him! Ouch. (It’s not hard to imagine why she became his ex-wife).
As luck would have it he did lose his hair – first on top and then at the back and I said to him when it first happened – ya know what? Just say fuck it and shave it ALL off. Embrace the bald. And he did.
He’s been bald for years now but has the cutest little goatee and moustache which actually makes him look a bit like a bad biker. A little scary. Especially when you combine it with the tattoo of a scorpion on his neck, his pitch black Maui Jim sunnies and the fact that he is one, big dude. I love the whole look and feel as safe as if I had 3 trained guard dogs walking with me when we go anywhere together.
And it seems other men are embracing the look now too. Gone are the days where men flock down to the chemist to stock up on Rogaine (a harsh chemical you plaster onto your scalp in the hopes you can retain and maybe even re-grow the disappearing tresses), along with the comb-overs, and the copious use of gel to spread out the remaining hair on top to try and convince others that it’s just as thick as it always was.
Everywhere I go I see bald men. And I think they are hot.
A lil’ taste of my @EBONYMagazine POWER 100 cover shoot. Thank you team. My first Ebony cover was over 17yrs ago when I first broke into the business of Hollywood. Having no idea where this long road would take me. Grateful for the journey. Grateful for the grind. Hits newsstands this THANKSGIVING. For the record this is how I always casually post up and just stare at my tequila before I drink it. 🥃 📸 @gavinbondphotography
Would you kick your fella to the curb if he lost his locks?
