Choosing bald haircuts should be based primarily on your face shape, how much time you want to spend maintaining your look, and how much hair you have left. Most bald haircuts are short, so they move focus away from the areas where hair is missing. Some men even shave their heads completely bald. You should also make sure to take good care of your scalp, especially if you choose an extremely short style where it will be easily seen.
One factor you should take into consideration when choosing bald haircuts is the condition of your scalp. Since many haircuts for balding men leave much of the scalp within view, you'll want it to look its best if you go this route. To care for your scalp, make sure it stays moisturized and free of flakes or redness. Creams can also be applied to reduce the appearance of conditions like psoriasis or razor bumps.

If you have a relatively proportioned head and face, a shorter haircut should work fine for you. You can use regular clippers to shave as close to the head as desired. Most cuts leave no more than an inch (2.5 cm) when using this style for balding men, but it's really up to you. Some leave a little longer hair toward the top of the head in what is known as a "Caesar" haircut. This style may have to be done by a barber or stylist.
Shorter styles are not the only suitable option as bald haircuts, assuming you still have enough hair to accomplish a medium length cut. These styles typically look better on those with only mild to moderate balding. A medium cut often looks best when it gives the hair a more voluminous look and feel. For instance, styles with the hair longer at the top or in the front can give the illusion of having more hair. You can also go with keeping a slightly shorter look and spiking it at the sides to add more definition.
If you have the money to spend, you can also get layered bald haircuts from a professional stylist. Layered cuts are good because they give the illusion of body and fullness, even in those with receding hair. Using a stylish will also give you the opportunity to get insight into what styles might look best with your face shape and hair type, since some types are more difficult to style in certain ways. Keep in mind that longer styles tend to be harder to maintain and style on a daily basis.
Women who are losing their hair should typically go with longer styles to hide any bald areas. This is much easier with women's hair than with men's, since women tend to have longer hair anyway. Brushing the hair to the side and styling it in layers can also give the illusion of a fuller head of hair.
