"Balding" is a word no man wants to hear. Most societies in the world associate luxurious hair with youth, beauty, and good health. "For centuries, humans have adorned themselves in a variety of ways — tattooing, nail cosmetics, and most universally, hairstyles of all sorts," Robert T. Brodell, MD, professor of internal medicine of the dermatology section told Everyday Health. "For many people, their hair is what makes them feel beautiful.” When you lose your hair — for whatever reason, it can be devastating.
Luckily, there balding guys have options. Phil Ring is one of them. He specializes in hair replacement, and his non-surgical procedures make a huge difference. Just look at these before-and-after photos and the confidence his clients radiate after everything's done!

"I only use HairskeenUSA for the hair that I use," Phil wrote. "Just my preference because the lace systems rarely ever shed and its such a high quality system."
Everyday Health suggests these positive ways of dealing with the emotional side of hair loss include:
Reminding yourself that hair loss itself is not life-threatening. "It may not be pleasant and it can be unfortunate, but you can live with thinning hair or a bald spot, Brodell says. Hair loss is only as challenging as you think it is."
Putting that bald spot in perspective. "Your true friends and family will like you for yourself and not for how much hair you have on your head. When it comes to sexuality, you have many other attributes to excite your partner."
Working with beauty professionals to find a hairstyle that suits you. "You may want to find a wig, hat, or a head scarf that complements your sense of fashion. If your hair is thinning, it’s best to keep it short rather than try to hide bald spots with obvious comb-overs."
Considering talk therapy. "If the emotional impact of hair loss is getting in the way of living your life, get help from a mental health professional."
