Dapper Beard Styles for Bald Men

If there was one least favorite phase in men's lives, it would probably be when they start experiencing a receding hairline and hair loss on the head. Who does not like a head full of hair, especially when it indicates youth and virility?

As some men try to reverse the situation and indulge in much hand wringing over this situation, here is our advice: Relax and try growing a beard. Bald men with beards is a badass look, as many actors in Hollywood prove - from Dwayne Johnson to Bruce Willis, those beards make them the hottest, tough guys ever! Although we will not spend time convincing you to embrace going bald, if you have decided to shave your head and are worried that you cannot play with your look in terms of beard, you are mistaken. 

We decided to touch on this topic because most guys will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of American men will experience hair thinning and baldness to some degree. Let us get this straight; our expertise is in beards. Since there will be many readers who are already experiencing baldness, we can guide them on choosing a beard style that makes them feel the confident, dapper man they deserve to be.

To begin with, remember that a beard will help reshape your face and give you control over how you look. Besides, it makes for a bold style statement, and you do not want to say no to that, do you? Although the beard styles that bald men can choose from are not exhaustive, we have picked a few of our favorites. So, let us get into it.

1. The Boxed Beard

This Beard Style looks quite similar to a full beard. The only difference is that the sides are thinner compared to the rest of the hair. The style makes a man look much more groomed and gives the impression that the beard is cared for. If you are looking to make your face appear more angular, this beard is the right choice as the hair follows the jawline closely. If you want to achieve this look, make sure that you take symmetry and precision seriously.  The trimmed edges are the key to a sharp, overall look.

2. The Goatee

If there was ever a bald guy that gave us goatee goals, it is Breaking Bad's Walter White. The character kept it medium length and super healthy. If you have a short, round face – Goatees will add length and provide structure to your look.

If you want to achieve Walter White's iconic goatee, start with full hair coverage. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will have to wait anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks before you can trim it to the desired shape. During the growth process, make sure you eat well and provide plenty of moisture to the skin so that your hair comes out lush and healthy. When your hair is all grown, time to trim. Begin at the top of your cheeks and then gradually but carefully move down. One crucial step within the process is shortening of the mustache that should be taken care of with a pair of scissors and a wooden comb to ensure precision.

3. Full beard

This style works great for rectangular faces and provides the wearer the ultimate tough guy look. If you opt for this beard, keep in mind that it requires shaping often and needs much maintenance. You will also find plenty of variations in the full beard family, so you can pick and choose the one that works for your facial angles and shape.

4. Short Beard or Stubble

If you are starting your journey as a bearded bald man, a short beard or stubble is the right choice.
