Are you one of the thousands of men who’s impacted by hair loss? Are you debating if you would look good bald? You’re in good company; many men struggle with this decision. While there’s no guarantee that you’ll look good without hair, there are six factors to consider when determining if you would.

Firstly, it’s important to note that if you’re confident enough to rock a completely bald look, then hats off to you! Your confidence makes you look handsome effortlessly. But for those who want to add a little frame to their face or restore a hairline, consider scalp micropigmentation.

Apart from physical looks, hair holds a lot of cultural significance too. Hairlines, in particular, are essential in many cultures and, by extension, critical to some people. In fact, physiognomy has an ancient history and is still used today. Physiognomy is the practice of face-reading that dates back to ancient China, India, and Greece, where hairlines are one of the many aspects that are evaluated.

The following are the six ways to determine whether you would look handsome without hair:

The Bald Truth - 6 Ways to Know If You'll Look Handsome

The Shape of Your Head

The shape of your head is the most crucial factor when it comes to sporting a bald look. While oval and square heads look great with a buzz cut, heart and oblong faces might not look their best. However, if you want a frame to your face and give the impression that you don’t have a problem to begin with then consider SMP.

Head Symmetry

Having a symmetrical head is not a requirement for rocking a bald look, but it’s an essential aspect to look out for. Symmetry is beautiful, and it is no different when it comes to a bald look. While no one’s head is entirely symmetrical, the most appealing look is effortless when facial features and characteristics are comparable on both sides of the head. If the features on each side of your head and face are in harmony and mostly congruent, you can wear a bald head with confidence.

Skin Tone

A tan or darker skin tone can hide flaws and make you look great on an entirely bald head. However, if your skin tone is pale, you may need to be more careful with your bald look. But that doesn’t mean that bald men with pale skin can’t look handsome. A good example is Bruce Willis and Jason Statham, who both look great with a bald head.


Personal style is an essential factor in determining whether you’ll look good bald. If you’re confident and comfortable with style choices such as piercings, tattoos, or other bold styles, then the bald head can complement your look effortlessly. Still, conservative looks may not go well with a bald head. It’s essential to look good and, most importantly, feel comfortable with your style choice.

Being in Shape

Your physical condition also plays a role in determining whether you’ll look handsome bald or not. Staying fit and taking care of your body can create a positive impression, whether it be for dating prospects or general interactions with others.


And finally, the last but most crucial factor that determines whether you’ll look good bald is confidence. If you can rock a bald head confidently, with a big smile, and a positive attitude, people will notice you and admire your courage and self-esteem. Confidence is the key to looking good in any hairstyle or outfit.

Bonus: A Faded Hairline

As a bonus point, consider getting a hairline tattoo or scalp tattoo to truly accentuate your facial features. At Elegant SMP, our well-sought-after technique is the faded hairline. Our expert technicians creates natural-looking impressions on your scalp that create the illusion of hair follicles and help to mimic that 5 o’clock shadow look. A well-devised faded hairline gives a sleek finish with an artistic flair. This is our specialty.


In conclusion, determining whether you would look handsome bald is no easy feat, but considering the six factors above can make it a little easier. If you decide that the bald look is for you, it’s crucial to be confident and comfortable with your decision. Remember, if you’re looking to add a little frame to your face or restore your hairline, consider scalp micropigmentation.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
