“I’m starting to lose my hair—it’s receding a little, and I’m getting a bald spot on top. Is there anything I can do to minimize it?” — LEE T., NEW YORK, NY
As for specifics: There are two kinds of receding hairlines—a widow’s peak, and when it all moves back.
If you have a widow’s peak, quit bitching. That’s debonair—women love that shit. If it’s a real receding hairline, where the whole thing is moving back, just tell your barber you want it messy on top, or buzz it down. For that, go with a No. 3 or 2 razor guard on top, 1.5 on the bottom. If you do a comb-over to try and “hide” the hairline, you’ll just point a neon sign at yourself saying, “Look! I’m balding and insecure!”
We’ve all seen people try to hide it—it doesn’t look good. Do what Bruce Willis and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson do: Own it.
