5 Reasons Why Every Man Should Shave His Head

Jeff Bezos.

Mahatma Gandhi.

Michael Jordan.

And every single guy in Marine Corps boot camp.

What do they have in common?

Bald heads.

why you should shave your head

Men's reasons for shaving their heads range from hiding hair loss to religious devotion to uniform regulations. But there are a few reasons why every guy should at least consider trying it out.

Ihsaan Ali of The StyleJumper knows a thing or two about rocking the shaved head. If you're wondering whether to shave your head – you'll want to hear what he has to say.

1. Association

The boot camp buzz cut helps recruits feel like part of the team and shift from viewing themselves as nervous civilians to viewing themselves as skilled warriors.

The intimidating precision of Michael Jordan's shaved head felt like an extension of his prowess on the basketball court – and sparked a boost in the look's popularity.

Michael Jordan made bald heads cool.

When you shave your head you join the ranks of a historic assortment of badasses – Jordan, Jason Statham, Samuel L. Jackson, The Rock, Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, Patrick Stewart.

The mental associations that creates for you and the people around you will boost your confidence and sense of resilience.

2. Boldness

A shaved head is a bold style statement.

Sure you could go subtle, cover up the spots where your hair is getting thin, frame your face – or you could bare it all, at least from the eyebrows up.

Not everybody is going to love your new look right away. You might raise eyebrows at work. Your mother might have a thing or two to say about it.

Not everyone is going to love Ihsaan's shaved head. Does he look like he cares?

But most people will just be reacting to the shock of change – and the willingness to embrace change while others cling to the familiar is exactly what makes bald guys stand out. Even if you're aging. ESPECIALLY if you're aging.

3. Deeper Psychology

A 2012 study out of the Journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science found that the weakest hairstyle a man can have is thinning hair on top – and the most powerful is a completely bald head.

Bald men were rated as being:

13% more dominant 6% more confident 10% more masculine 1 inch taller 13% stronger Nearly 4 years older

Thinning hair can make you feel paranoid about your appearance – you're constantly worrying about whether people are looking at your spot or whether it's showing. When you shave your head all of that goes away.

4. Chance For Reinvention

As mentioned above, shaving your head is a big change. You are going to look and feel very different. And that's a good thing.

The first time you look at your bald self in the mirror, you're going to be looking at a new man.

Any changes you've been wanting to make to your wardrobe, your body, or even your lifestyle are going to get an extra boost because you're making a fresh start.

You'll be able to introduce things to your wardrobe that you might not have explored (or been able to pull off) with hair.

hat with shaved head

Shave your head and you have the perfect excuse for a great hat.

The most obvious of these is hats – you'll want to protect your head from sunburn and cold weather, so if you want an excuse to try out different men's hat styles, this is it.

A bald head tends to draw your attention towards your body. It lends confidence – but also motivates discipline.

Similar to the hat situation – if you're looking for the right reason to start running or going to the gym, you've found it.

5. Shaved Heads And Facial Hair

A full head of hair acts as a focal point for your face. Know what else can do that job for you? A beard or mustache.

You'll be saving time cutting and styling your hair, so why not get intentional about your beard? Grow it out and start keeping it groomed and styled.

You can shape the way your face is structured by choosing different types of beards. And the popularity of beards will add to the cool factor of your shaved head.

6. Bonus: Maturity

If your hair is thinning out, shaving represents a conscious decision to say goodbye to it.

Sure, you could fight the clock – and that bald spot – at every turn. But for a lot of guys, it feels more dignified to face the inevitable on their own terms.

Leaving vanity behind and accepting your age is a mature move.

Even if you look older without your hair (and some guys look younger) you'll come off as classier and more confident than a man who obviously can't relax about his comb-over.

On top of that, it's a style that says “I'm not thinking about my hair right now.”

If you're old enough to go grey or bald, you've certainly had a journey to get to where you are.

A bold, simple appearance implies a focus on what really matters: your passions, your family, your inner life.

At the end of the day, you are more than your youthful appearance – and you can let that show.
