Ten Tips on How to Shave Your Head Bald

The days of a comb-over being cool are long passed, assuming they were ever here. Faced with thinning hair, more and more men are choosing to shave their head bald, which more and more women are finding stylish and attractive. Some men, athletes in particular, choose to shave their heads whether they’re balding or not.

If you’re new to shaving your head, here are a few simple guidelines for getting results that will keep you looking your best.

1. Start by cutting your hair as close to your scalp as possible with a good set of clippers. Use the closest setting or remove the guard entirely.

2. If you’re cutting your hair indoors, it’s best to do so naked, standing on a sheet to catch the hair as it falls, or in the shower.

3. Choose a good quality razor that fits comfortably in your hand. Since you will most likely be shaving by feel, or while standing with your back to a mirror, you’ll need a razor that’s easy to control. Shaving your head is not the time to grab a cheap, disposable blade that’s harder to maneuver. If you think you might shave your head regularly, consider investing in a specialty razor, like the Headblade Sport Ultimate Head Shave which clips over your index finger.

4. Begin by conditioning your scalp and stubble, just as you would your beard. Whether you choose a gel, cream or shaving soap is personal preference, but it’s always a good idea to start with a hot shower, or at least wet and massage your scalp with hot water in order to soften and lubricate your skin and hair. Follow with the liberal application of your shaving gel and let it soak in for at least a minute.

5. When you begin to shave your head, resist the urge to press the razor down firmly. Simply run it lightly over your head.

6. How to shave your head. Start from the nape of your neck and move up and over in long, smooth strokes, or start from your forehead and working back in those same long, gentle strips. While short passes are best for your face, you’ll want to use long strokes on your head to minimize the number of times you pass over an area with the razor. Try to avoid making more than two passes.

7. Be extra careful with the areas above and behind your ears and at the base of your skull where most men’s skin tends to fold and crease.

8. After you finish shaving your head, rinse away any remaining shave cream then do a final rinse with cool water to close your pores back up. Dry your head gently.

9. Follow your shave with a moisturizing or soothing aftershave lotion to minimize any potential irritation, especially when you’re first starting out.

10. Expect some nicks and cuts the first few times you shave your head. For most men, it will take a few times to get the hang of shaving bald by feel or in the mirror. If you do get some nicks or razor burn on your first few tries, don’t worry: you will get better at this quickly. Just give your scalp a day or two to rest, then try again.
