Unfortunately, as we age we tend to experience baldness. This is a completely natural occurrence, especially if baldness runs in your family. It also happens to both women and men and at varying ages. Luckily, there are ways that you can cover baldness relatively easily. Here are three options that you may want to consider.
One of the easiest ways to cover baldness is to wear a hat. This is often a popular option since they are readily available where ever you go and there are so many different styles to choose from. Make sure you choose a hat that thoroughly covers the area of your head that is balding. The styles that work best include a Fedora, Cowboy, Boater, and a Homburg hat. If you are interested in something a little more casual, a baseball hat will work just fine. The option of wearing a hat is often used by those who experience balding in one spot rather than their entire head.
You can also disguise baldness by wearing your hair a certain way. The most popular way to wear your hair when you are balding is to do a “comb over.” This is where you push the hair that you do have over to cover the area where you are experiencing balding. Based on where you are missing hair, you may not be able to pull this one off. But if you are balding in just the right spot, this may be the best option for you.
If your hair is just beginning to thin, the best hairdo to get is the “textured crop.” This haircut gives your hair lots of mini layers that will minimize the appearance of thinning hair. Another option is to rock the “Messy ‘do.” This hairstyle involves somewhat longer layers to cause a distraction from hair-thinning or balding. It is a more sophisticated way to have “un-kept” hair. If you only experience a few bald spots, you can also comb your part a certain way to just hide the bald spot.
If you are experiencing severe balding, hats and hairdos may not be able to cover up the issue. In this case, you may want to consider investing in a wig. This option gives you free reign as to how you want your hair to look. The most important thing to remember when choosing a wig is to pick one that fits your head perfectly. If you choose something too drastic, it may not look natural. Choose a style that you already know will look good on you, perhaps one that you have had in the past. It is okay to try a few on to make sure it is something that will work for you. If you end up not liking the style in a few years, you can always change things up later on.
Choosing which option to cover baldness is best for you may be quite a challenge, especially if you are not used to wearing a hat or wearing your hair a certain way. The best way to decide which one is the best for you is to consider the severity of your balding. If you only have one bald spot, you may be able to easily cover that up by positioning your hair to cover it up. Other more severe cases of balding will require the use of a hat or a wig. Whichever option you choose, remember that you can change your mind later on or even use a combination of options.
