GQ Senior Editor Says Men Should Embrace Their Baldness (VIDEO)


Two top fights men battle as aging, the tummy spare tire and losing their hair. For those guys who are going bald, juts look at how sexy Walter White is. Look at Jimmy Somerville who we posted about yesterday.

GQ editor Jon Wilde is no stranger to fighting a losing battle against his hairline, and in a HuffPost Live interview on Thursday, Wilde said he feels “more dignified and confident” by embracing his baldness.
Wilde: “I got to a point where I was just like ‘Listen, this is what’s going to look best on me from now on. I’m sick of kind of dealing with the way I feel about my hair going away, sick of kinda dealing with trying to fake it. It’s not coming back, and I’m going to do the thing I think looks strongest on me.”
According to Wilde, there’s a way for the 70 percent of men suffering from male pattern baldness to reclaim control over their hairline.
Wilde: “I feel 20 times more dignified and confident with my hair this short and kind of steering into the skid that is losing my hair, than sitting there and trying to make sure the 17 hairs I had on the top of my head were covering what I needed it to … To any guy who’s thinking of shaving it all off or cutting it way down: go for it.”
