Ah, the combover. That age-old hairstyle some balding men employ to fool us (or themselves) into thinking they have more hair than they do, full heads of hair. Really?? I mean, REALLY? Do you you actually think you’re fooling anyone? Do you think we look at you and think, “Wow! Look at that guy and his full head of hair!” Well, we don’t. Now, I don’t pretend to understand the emotional toll losing one’s hair has. I know it is really difficult for some men to accept. But I assure you, the combover is no solution. I contend it has the opposite effect you’re looking for. And it has to be difficult to maintain. I mean, hairspray won’t help you when a big wind comes up and blows those strands all over the place.
To me, there is only one solution. Embrace the hair loss. Shave your hair close. Shave your head entirely. So many men rock the look. I give you these men…they are fabulous and sexy.
Rudy Giulianni? He had a combover, but wisely changed his ways.
Bret Michaels? No one is completely sure what’s going on under that bandanna. I suspect receding hair. Now, he’s not using the combover, but the balding/long hair combo. Really no better than the combover. C’mon. Let see who you really are. We’ll still love you.
The Donald? Well, who knows what he’s trying to do, exactly. There seems to be a combo thing going on. Whatever it is, it’s horrible.
So, what say you? What’s your opinion of the combover or styles like it that attempt to cover up hair loss? Who do you know that rocks the bald look?
