10 Bald Actors Who Prove Less Is More

Afraid to shave it all off? These men are prime examples that losing your hair isn’t always a bad thing.

Hair loss affects all of us differently. Some guys experience it gradually, over many decades, while others are nearly bald by 25. Some of us do everything in our power to fight hair loss, from hair transplants to prescription treatments to supplements. The results are mixed, depending on your commitment to hair retention, as well as how early you took charge. With all these factors—and the fact keeping your hair can be a lifelong commitment (and an expensive one at that)—it’s no surprise many men embrace being bald. Hollywood’s no different: There are plenty of bald actors who prove less is more. 

That makes it sound like an easy decision. Of course most of us would like to have the option to maintain our hair—as well as the option to shave it all away. This is why it’s a difficult decision to cut ties with hair retention and commit to the stark-bald look. It feels like you’re saying goodbye to some core part of your identity, and requires building up some newfound confidence.

While we’re not about to ask you to look for comfort from actors with bald heads, we would like to point out these celebrities in Hollywood have no hair despite all the hair retention options available to them. 

Celebrities have access to the world’s most in-demand doctors, treatments, and innovations. So it’s really saying something that they’re choosing baldness over the alternative.

They also look great. Some famous bald actors like to offset a lack of hair on their head with beards, while others choose bold glasses. Anyone facing baldness can look to their example and find some comfort on the road ahead.

Before we spotlight those A-list domes, allow us to give you a few key grooming tips, once you go bald.

Grooming Tips for Bald Men

1. Have an ergo-friendly electric razor.

Regardless of whether or not you prefer to shave with a razor, the task of polishing your entire head one to three times a week can be time consuming—especially since this is one task you don’t want to rush. So, do yourself a favor and keep an ergo-friendly, head-hugging electric razor in your dopp kit for those days you just can’t be bothered to expend some 30 minutes on the regimen.

2. Invest in the shave regimen.

Don’t let our tone in the last tip fool you: Any opportunity to shave with a razor and all the skin-soothing accoutrement should be relished. For one, it will give you the longest-lasting smoothness. But moreover, this time spent shaving is now a sacred ritual for you—or at least, you should treat it like one. Listen to your favorite podcast each time you freshen up (we recommend it be a serious podcast, or a sports one—so long as it’s not one where you’ll be laughing a lot, for obvious reasons). Make this something you treasure and look forward to. Invest in top-tier shaving products, too, so that the time spent reflects the care you show your skin at every chance.

3. Anti-shine products are imperative.

Keep oil-free, mattifying products stocked up, be it a mattifying moisturizer or even a translucent powder that you apply to your head after all other skincare products. This will prevent you from looking like a light bounce on a movie set.

4. SPF is most important.

Next to a good roster of hats, stay stocked up on facial SPF, and apply it daily. This can be a face moisturizer with SPF or a standalone face sunscreen applied atop the moisturizer. This year-round daily habit will ensure your skin stays smooth and taut throughout your years (which will make shaving it exponentially easier in your later years, trust us).

5. Use a facial cleanser or shampoo to clean the scalp.

A shampoo is as much a scalp-care product as it is a hair-care product, so being bald isn’t suddenly permission to skip out on it. That said, so long as you’re cleaning the scalp with something—your everyday facial cleanser will likely suffice—then you can prevent it from getting too greasy. Since you’ve likely got a lot of sebum glands up there, consider a product with salicylic acid to help reduce oil buildup. This will even help prevent dandruff. Just remember to moisturize daily to prevent overdrying.

Bald Actors Who Look Great Without Hair

1. Shemar Moore

Moore’s acting chops aren’t his only calling card—that bald dome has more or less been the face of CBS for the last couple decades between The Young and the Restless, S.W.A.T., and Criminal Minds.

2. Stanley Tucci

The Internet’s husband also proves a bald head pairs perfectly with bold glasses.

3. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Since The Rock’s bald head is part of the entire tough-guy package, it’s kind of funny to look back at his early wrestling days, before he shaved it all off. It looked good then, but it looks even better now.

4. Jacob Batalon

Batalon’s big break came for playing Peter Parker’s BFF in the latest Spiderman films—but it might be a surprise to many that the bald actor is wearing a hairpiece in those movies. He’s the youngest actor on this list, and proof positive that you can embrace the smooth dome sooner than later.

5. Bruce Willis

Willis is the quintessential bald Hollywood action star, in addition to Vin Diesel and Jason Statham. These guys are inspiring dads all across the world to shave it all down and buy a motorcycle.

6. Keegan-Michael Key

An actor-slash-show-runner, Key has landed some high-profile gigs in the past few years, and speaking of profile…his is as smooth as marble.

7. Corey Stoll

Stoll is one of those actors who seems to be in every movie or TV show—that, or his presence sticks with you well past the credits. Maybe he’s born with it or maybe it’s… that perfectly polished head? Probably both.

8. Dave Bautista

Bautista seems to shave his head by choice, and perhaps that plays into the aforementioned tough-guy aesthetic. As if there was any doubt about his toughness…still, how sharp does he look?

9. Tituss Burgess

Emmy-nominated Broadway star Burgess isn’t always bald, but when he is, it’s like staring at all the little golden statues he’s bound to snatch up in this lifetime.

10. F. Murray Abraham

For this tenth slot, we waffled between Abraham and his fellow Best Actor Oscar winner, Ben Kingsley. We gave Abraham the edge for letting his “donut” grow out, and proving that with a little swagger, you can be naturally bald while still rocking some peripheral fuzz. It’s all in how you sell it.
