Certain hair styles have quickly become unanimously agreed upon as being “no-no’s” in the public world. The comb-over has recently been one of those hairstyles. For the longest time, the standard comb-over was a popular technique for men who are quickly balding. There used to be a theme of “cover your head no matter what”, and men would grow there very last few hairs out and attempt to have them cover their whole head. The worst part of comb-overs is the greasy gel used to keep the comb-over fixed. This often made for extremely greasy hair; combine this with a partially covered head and you instantly have someone who likes like he may have some sort of disease.
A simple clean shaven head has now become the better alternative; this provides a few benefits to the comb-over. First of all, clean shaven heads are extremely easy to take care of. There is no gel or grease used. In fact, once you shave your head, you don’t have to even touch it for a few weeks or even months (depending on how fast your hair grows). Even better yet, shaving your head is an easy task that even you can do yourself as long as you have a nice electric shaver. If you want to get really picky with your shaved head, you could even take a manual razor to it and try to clean up some tight edges. This article goes into detail as to how you can shave your head.
The next big reason as to why a clean shaven head is always better than the notorious comb-over is the message it paints. First of all, a clean shaven head is about as simple and natural of a look out there. It’s really nothing but your face and your head; it says “here I am, this is me”. Even if you don’t have the most attractive looking skull, it shows that you have no desire for fancy hair styles. Generally, very straight-forward people prefer clean shaven heads as it directly presents their personality.
Also, a clean shaven head can really change the way you look. A lot of people tend to look way younger with a clean shaven head; this is most likely caused by having a young appearing face. On the other end, a shaved head can make you look a lot older. It all depends on the guy which is better, but a clean shaven head has the potential to do both. No matter how you slice it, a bald look is always better than the out-dated comb-over.
