Everybody knows the guy who does the comb-over. You laugh about it, and wonder if he thinks he’s fooling anyone. Then one day, you wake up and discover your hair is thinning. And in the midst of your premature midlife crisis, somehow you become that guy. “I have many clients in this situation,” Saras says. If you find yourself caught between a comb-over and a bald spot, “covering it up is never a great option.” Better move: Get your hair trimmed close in the area that’s thinning (usually on top), and leave it longer on the sides — it will look fuller, Saras explains. The other choice: Shave it all off. Because at the end of the day, if you are going bald, all the clever styling and trimming in the world isn’t going to disguise your predicament for long. The only thing that will: A clean shave that leaves people guessing what your hair might look like, if you had any.
