I’ve proven that bald men can be stunningly attractive, especially when they apply good fashion sense and style to their look.
A bald man’s style includes all the clothes, accessories, and shoes that improve a man’s outward appearance to be more attractive and fashionable. Other fashion traits include facial hair styles and bald style variations like shaved, stubble or smooth looks.
I’ve put together this Complete Guide to Bald Men’s Style & Fashion. It’s packed with current trends, also bald celebrities for inspiration, plus tips on how to transform your look.
Style Tips & Fashion Trends for Bald Men
While your overall look depends on your height, weight, and personal style, there are a few things you can do easily to maximize your bald appearance according to top barbers.
1. Perfect Your Grooming Routine
If you’ve joined the bald ranks, you already know how important it is to maintain a clean-shaven head. That means left over ponytails or bald comb-overs – fully shaved.
Many men use a bald shaver or see a barber for a full head shave, while others even try head waxing.
A typical grooming routine to keep your head looking smooth and healthy is:
- Wash with a sulfate-free shampoo
- Use a moisturizing conditioner
- Add a pre-shave cream or lotion
- Use a high-quality electric razor
- Apply head wax for a shiny head or go for a matte look
Hair typically grows a ¼ inch every 14 days, so you’ll likely maintain frequently. So, a shave every 3 days or every other day if you want the ultimate smooth scalp.
I find it easier to keep up with my shaving daily using a Pitbull Skull Shaver Gold. 90 seconds and I’m done!
There are also different styles for men’s bald heads, such as a shiny bald look vs. matte bald styles. There’s no right or wrong, so lean in to your personal preference. For me, I like the matte look – subtle… but bold!
2. Play to Your Strengths
What do you love best about your look? Perhaps you have great skin tone or a muscular physique.
Some people say that bald heads can make you stand out in a crowd, but it’s best to embrace this and wear the clothes that you make feel more confident and comfortable.
3. Personal Stylist App for Fashion Outfits
These apps typically provide a quiz that matches you with a stylist or automatically start suggesting products to fit your look. They also offer a quick and easy way to find clothes in textures and colors that match what you’re looking for.
4. Avoid Bulky Shirts and Sweaters
Be honest to yourself about your own head size, as it may look smaller compared to the width of your shoulders.
In these cases, it’s best to avoid wearing bulky shirts and sweaters, as that would only add to the imbalance. Additionally, if your head is on the larger side, then opt for button-down shirts or a blazer.
5. Create Contrast with Your Clothes
Stylists suggest bald heads tend to show your skin tone, so select pieces that will add the right contrast to your look.
So, with pale skin you’ll get better contrast with darker colors. Or, perhaps you can add accessories to compliment your skin tone, such as a dark felt hat and bold watch.
6. Fashion Accessories
It’s time to bring together your look. As a bald man, there are several accessories that look great on you.
This is the go-to accessory for all bald men, and it’s perfect for almost any day or weather.
There are a number of different hats that work for bald men (See Trendspotter’s guide to men’s hats.)
Jackets and Scarves
Another great way to diversify your look is through a leather jacket and scarf. Billy Zane, Bruce Willis, Tyler Perry, and Patrick Stewart frequently opt for a jacket and scarf to complete their look.
Do you wear a suit every day? Then your tie color, fabric, and pattern really matter. We’ve been studying some suit and tie trends to bring you these four looks for bald men and ties:
From sunglasses to eyeglasses, you can truly stand out and show off your confidence with a high-quality pair of glasses.
While there’s some truth to matching your face shape with glasses, you can also use the LensCrafters face shape tool to get help find the right glasses.
Watches and Jewelry
Though I’d suggest letting go of the earrings, cool silver or wooden rings add a simple touch. I wear leather bands mixed with a matching beaded bracelet on my dominant wrist. For my non-dominant side, I’ll wear a stainless watch or heavy link silver bracelet. If I’m dressing, then a leather band watch.
7. Grow Your Beard Out
There’s really no dispute here. Girls love guys sporting the bald and beard look, according to studies. For one, they’re perceived as more dominant and masculine. So why not grow your beard and develop a fresh your look?

8. Get in Shape
Have you seen the before and after of Jeff Bezos?
Many men go through phases in life where it’s easy to pack on the pounds and hard to take it off, but with a bald head, it’s difficult to carry extra weight. Bald men look confident with a defined upper body.
Just look at Ethan Suplee, who’s been through difficulties with weight loss and hair loss.
Remember that your style is all your own. Having confidence in your appearance makes all the difference.
