5 Grooming Tips For A Bald Groom – How To Look Your Best On Your Big Day!
Summer is peak season for weddings running right through to September. No bride or bald groom wants a photo album filled with grey skies and the presence of the sun makes the special day feel even better.
One issue some men have to deal with on their wedding day is baldness or a balding spot. It can cause a lot of anxiety and stress worrying about a receding hairline with you centre stage for the whole day. The good news is there is plenty that can be done for a bald groom to look and feel good on your wedding. Read through our suggestions below to pick up some ideas.
1. Keep it smooth
It takes some bravery to completely shave all your hair off. But take one look at those that have and you’ll see confident guys at ease with their appearance. In reality, it’s no different to shaving the hair off any other part of your body.
As long as you do the big shave with plenty of time to spare, you will look leaner and sleeker on your wedding day. Simply using a standard razor, shaving cream and aftershave balm will do the trick.
2. Protect your head
Summer weddings are fantastic events to attend but uncomfortable for bald guys dealing with the hot sun on their heads. Without the hair for protection, the top of the scalp is prone to sunburn. No-one wants a red-head standing out like a beacon!
This is easily avoided by using high-factor sun cream which can be applied before the wedding begins. Keep it tucked away and you can nip off to the toilet later to apply some more whenever needed.
3. Scalp micropigmentation treatment
If the thought of not having a hairline for your wedding is too much to bear, this offers the perfect solution. It’s a straightforward procedure that only takes a few weeks and gives you a brand new hairline for life.
Hair SMP (also known as a bald hair tattoo) is cheaper than a hair transplant and much more realistic. Scalp micropigmentation is perfect to plan in advance of your wedding day, as the results are instant. It is best to arrange at least 2 months before your wedding so that all 3 sessions can be booked in with time to get used to your new look. Visit the gallery for more before and after photos here.
4. Grow a beard
Full beards have been in fashion for quite a while. Face framing stubble goes great with a shaved head, or even growing a full beard that is well groomed would look smart. Facial hair goes well with a bald head and it diverts attention to your face, rather than the top of your head.
Remember, a beard will change the shape and visual impact of your face. Pick out one that suits your facial shape and it will make you look and feel great for your wedding. Make sure to experiment with your style well before the big day so you can be confident and theres no last minute panic.
5. Pamper your head
A bald head needs attention just like the skin on your face. Use a face scrubber to moisturise your head to keep it in good condition. A water-based moisturiser is best so your head doesn’t look oily or too glossy.
This will keep the skin on top of your head looking fantastic and not dried out under the sun. You can even exfoliate the scalp to remove dead cells and avoid any follicles becoming blocked.
