It’s high time you embrace your baldness in all its bald (or balding) glory because it’s completely normal. In fact, it’s more common than you might think. By some estimates, 53% of men will experience moderate to extensive hair loss when they reach the 40 to 49 age group.
Be bald. There’s no need to give in to the hair restoration industry. WebMD estimates that, on average, hair transplants will run you between $4,000 and $15,000. That’s sure to leave a huge dent in your wallet and still not a full head of hair. Make bald work for you. Don’t fight it.
Here are some reasons why you should embrace the power of the bald and be proud of it.
1. Some of the most amazing, accomplished men are bald
All hail the bald king Larry David, who in a very funny scene from Curb Your Enthusiasm, discusses his unfair and unnoticeable treatment as a bald man, noting his hysterical love and acknowledgement of his bald brothers when they pass each other on the street. David likes to give his bald brothers a nod and a thumbs up. This kind of inspires you to embrace the bald community, right? If it’s good enough for the bald king, then it’s good enough for you.

2. Not having to worry about your hair means you can focus on other things
When you don’t have to focus on styling your hair, getting it cut, and worrying how it looks once the wind hits it, it means that you can focus on other, more important things like being one of the most powerful bald men in America, or volunteering your time for a charity.
3. It shows you’re confident
In order to rock the bald look successfully, you must do so with confidence. Baldness says to the world: Yeah, I’m bald and I’m confident — you got a problem with that? No, absolutely not.
4. You look masculine
According to a U.S. study published in the Social Psychological and Personality Science Journal, men who were completely bald were perceived to be more masculine, dominant, and taller (YES!), and around 13% stronger than men with a full head of hair. I told you this bald thing is going to work out for you.
Vin Diesel: my case in point. OK, OK, so he is a movie star, but who cares? He exudes masculinity.
