Frequently Asked Questions

Is short or long hair better for balding?

If you are balding or have thinning hair and wish to conceal your hairline, short hairstyles will do a better job. You can style them to appear voluminous. Long hair gets weighed down, and the strands stick closer to the scalp, not leaving enough scope for styling.

Is a shaved head unprofessional for women?

No. A shaved head does not look unprofessional and is a matter of preference (irrespective of gender). Besides, having a shaved head or even a buzz or cropped cut accentuates the facial features and contour and looks aesthetically pleasing.

How do you style hair with a balding crown?

You can try hairstyles like shaved sides or buzz cuts to help cover up a balding crown. You can use texturizing cream or spray to build the volume of the existing hair and experiment with a quiff or mohawk to create an illusion of fuller, thicker hair. Hairstyles like a comb-over or slicked-back hair can also help cover a balding crown.

Is going bald a trend?

Yes, going bald was seen as a major concern earlier. Today, people are widely embracing baldness as a part of their identity and confidence with various celebrities sporting bold bald looks.

Should I cut my hair if I’m balding?

Yes, trim split ends to keep your hair healthy. Since longer hair may weigh down the hair and cause further balding, cutting your hair may improve the appearance of thinning hair.

How to look professional while bald?

Getting a stylish pixie or buzz cut along with appropriate, clean, and stylish attire in accordance with your workplace dress code can make you look confident and professional.

What are some common mistakes to avoid when styling bold and beautiful hairstyles?

One of the major mistakes one should avoid is excessive heat styling, which can damage the remaining hair. Use heat protectants and follow a proper hair care routine to protect the hair and prevent further balding.

What are some hair care tips for women with bold, bald, and beautiful hairstyles?

You can follow simple tips like washing your scalp and remaining hair with a moisturizing shampoo. Apply coconut oil to hydrate the scalp and boost hair growth and use a hat or sunscreen to protect your scalp from the sun.
