Losing your hair can be distressing. But it doesn’t always have to be. There are plenty of examples of men who have gone bald gracefully.
In the celebrity world John Travolta is a good example. Like many other movie stars – Vin Diesel and Bruce Willis among them – Travolta has embraced a bald look. And the praise he has received has been overwhelming. Proof that bald doesn’t mean unattractive, or unconfident, in the slightest.
There are also plenty of normal, everyday men who have taken baldness, and gone with it. Take Londoner Phillip Levine. Philip did not know what to do when he started going bald in his twenties. Rather than dwell on his hair loss or become despondent, Philip decided to turn his bald head into art.
"I thought why not use it as a canvas, paint and attach things to my head using the border of where my hair would be,” the 28 year old said. Philip’s head has since been decorated with a number of colourful, vibrant paintings, depicting everything from butterflies to stars and tidal waves. Proof that going bald doesn’t mean losing your vitality.
These are just a handful of examples of men who have gone bald with dignity. Of course everyone is different. Some men wish to cling on to their hair for as long as they can. For such men, Propecia can help. But all balding men should know – hair loss does not necessarily have to be devastating. And there are always many, many other men out there experiencing the same thing.
