How To Embrace Baldness
Here at HEED we understand that not everyone has a sense of exuberance about their hairless bonce. However, we get it…We’ve been there… We’ve got the t-shirt!
Now we want all our fellow baldies to feel great about their appearance and feel confident on the inside as well as the outside. We say…“Never bend your head, always hold it high and look the world straight in the eye – a beautiful face needs space”. Let us help you banish any social stigmas, push insecurities aside and embrace baldness and become someone that makes you happy…With baldness comes greatness.
But wait, for those days when you do feel naff, follow these tips to get yourself back on track:
1. Follow Bald Influencers
If you are struggling with self-confidence as a bald-headed individual, it’s easy to sometimes feel isolated in your experience. While there is some amazing representation when it comes to bald celebrities and characters out there, (…like the amazing Gail Porter, the effervescent Patrick Stewart, the smouldering Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, or perhaps the animated Shrek!!) …it never hurts to fill your social media feeds with examples of beautiful baldness!
Seeing everyday folk living their lives proudly and joyfully with bald heads can do wonders for your self-confidence. If you like how they look and admire how confident they are, it’s easier to reflect those same positive thoughts back onto yourself. After all, it might get you thinking: If they can love themselves, why shouldn’t I?

2. Create a bald head skin care routine
When people think about a skin care routines and regimes, they think of ‘cucumbers on the eyes and face masks’ – but don’t forget the skin on your head as this is more delicate than on other places on your body. This vulnerability leaves you open to damage if you don’t take care of it. There is nothing that screams self-care quite like crafting a skincare routine that is all about giving your skin what it needs. Our products do just that! Specifically blended to cleanse, nourish and protect your bald head, HEED Skincare does wonders when it comes to encouraging self-love. Knowing your head looks and feels it’s best gives you the confidence to walk into that room with your head held high feeling a-maze-ing!! Click to see full regime.
3. People are more accepting than you may think
Surveys show that a high percentage of the general public rate bald people as ‘more confident’ and ‘self-assured’ when they embrace their baldness, rather than attempting to cover up their hairless head. Sure, there are still the minority of morons who find it amusing to poke fun at bald folk – ignore those fools – believe there is good in this world. People are more accepting than you may think so you need to accept what is, let go of what was, and believe in what will be… Be the best version of you.
4. Embrace what makes you unique
Baldness happens for many reasons; some through choice, others arrive via a different rocky path. We aren’t prejudice how you’ve arrived at greatness. We are only concerned about helping you care for your bald head – That’s it. Remember, diamonds are made under pressure so… no matter how you’ve got here or how you feel: get up, dress up, show up and never give up.
