In 2005, the 25-year-old rowing enthusiast Fab Eminem realized that he would never be called the “Blonde Cat” anymore. The Toulouse guy found out that he was suffering from androgen-induced alopecia that nearly a quarter of men (from the data of the French IFOP market research company in 2015) would be caught. “The lifespan of hair is getting shorter, it grows less and less, and is getting thinner.” Dr. Philip Abimelik, a scalp expert with more than 30 years of experience, explained. It’s long.” For three years, Fabu tried to hide his baldness under the suspicious eyes of the boat friends, but he was finally held down and let them give himself a tweet. “Well, if you don’t continue to shave, you can take this look to the office.” Friends said to him. In this way, with a bare head swayed, Fabu officially joined the army of “saying goodbye to the’rural surrounding the city, local support to the central’ hairstyle.”
The “barcode” hairstyle was once favored by former French President Valery Guiscar Destin.

It is reported that 14% of men over the age of 18 in France face hair loss. They tried every means to cover it up, such as combing the hair on both sides to the bald position in the middle. This hairstyle was called a “barcode” and was once favored by former French President Valery Guiscar Destin.
Today, however, it is better to show it than to hide it. For people with hair loss, all shave is obviously convenient and stylish. The bald images of Bruce Willis, Dawn Johnson, Jason Statham and other tough screen guys are now also favored by some business owners, such as DreamWorks founder Jeffrey Katzenberg And Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. American entrepreneur Seth Godin admitted many years ago that “shaved his head is a high-return marketing move”, and his bright head has long been a recognized symbol on the cover of his best-selling book. A study published by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in October 2012 showed that shaved heads may be a manifestation of vitality, charisma and leadership.
However, the image management of bald men is not so easy. Covered up but failed to withstand wind (see the dreadlocks posted on French President Macron’s forehead) or heat (for example, at a press conference held on November 20, 2020, former US President Trump’s After the lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani sweated, he often felt like a “fallen down” or “horror incident” when he shaved his head for the first time. “I’m going to faint!” The entrepreneur Julian Mondhard felt that his shaved head was “a big mistake made on a whim,” and he wore a hat for the next 24 hours.
Actor and director Eric Jado will never forget that scene: “When I was 27, I bought a can of shaving foam, and then I found a friend to shave my head… and I refused to sit in front of the mirror. Afterwards, on the beach in Guadeloupe, I brushed my hair with my hand, feeling like I was touching a smooth plate. I told myself, it’s over, there’s no help!”
For the actor, the ultimate problem immediately came up. Come: “What does my skull look like? Is it flat? Does it have spots? It’s shell-shaped, cone-shaped, or oval?” After shaved his hair, the smooth brain seemed to have a bit of eroticism, look. It looks sexy. However, according to a survey released by the “Darwin’s Beard” website in January 2021, only 28% of women think that bald heads are “charming.”
Today, the screen is full of tough guys with bald heads. The picture shows the before and after haircuts of Bruce Willis, Dawn Johnson, and Jason Statham.

”It’s a pity that no one has come to tell us how to take care of our bald head.” Fabu said regretfully. The pharmaceutical factory recommends applying medicated powder, using minoxidil and prometheus to slow down hair loss, or simply go for hair transplants. “But it is difficult to find a cream that is suitable for the scalp microbiota, especially the one rich in sebaceous glands.” Fabb said.
Many beauty brands, such as L’Oreal, tend to pay more attention to men’s beards, so bald men have to dig out their wives’ cream jars or continue to use shampoos to brainwash them. However, this gap in the cosmetics field is being filled: the American brand Mantl launched a series of skin care products in February 2020, including the most natural lotion, daily care products and anti-aging creams. This is more than Fab and its partners. The French brand Botak was founded several months ahead of schedule.
Similarly, entrepreneurs Nicolas Beretti and Eric Giardo are also preparing their own brand The Bold Club, launching products such as matte moisturizers. The biggest distress of the bald head is: sparkling. Nicholas touched his head and said: “I don’t know how many friends are blinded by our bald guys.” The two partners will also bring a drop bottle of sweet almond oil, and one that looks like a large lotion. Exfoliating products for lipsticks. “Let’s take a look at the playful makeup gestures of men… I can guarantee that in 20 years, all bald people will do this.” Eric quipped.

In his “Shame Handbook”, Fabu recorded the tragic appearance of the bald people on the screen: In the movie “End of the World”, when the nightclub owner had a dispute with a few overly noisy customers, the other party replies to him. He was actually asked to buy some hair; in the movie “Troublesome Wedding”, the character played by Nicolas Duisio fainted whenever he saw his baldness in the mirror when he was under drug control. Let’s look at another excerpt: “Sheep is the stupidest of all domestic animals, and also the thickest and densest. Conclusion: Hair is the enemy of intelligence, and the two refuse to coexist.”
The dreadlocks on French President Macron’s forehead are always docile.
At a press conference held on November 20, 2020, Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for former US President Trump and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, showed black lines on his cheeks after sweating.
The American brand Mantl has launched a series of top protection products for bald people.
Eric Wolin, 58, has been engaged in a battle aimed at cheering up all bald people. This professional from Nantes has not kept his hair since the scene where the French goalkeeper Fabien Bartez was kissed and bald in the 1998 World Cup. Inspired by the “French National Bald Sorority” established in 1957, he founded the “Bald Brotherhood”, usually on the Monday after Easter and September 9 (in French, “9” and “egg” (Similar pronunciation) Hold a party in a bar and offer a drink to the men who are “fait accompli” (already bald) and “rising star” (coming to be completely bald).
More broadly, bald people form a hidden club, as a big V suggested on a men’s fashion blog: “Visually embellish by growing a beard, wearing a V-neck T-shirt, or a shirt with a wide open neckline. Face, make the large area of smooth skin on the head look less obtrusive… But at the same time, be careful to avoid those punk-style accessories that will make you one of the skinheads. The secret contact between bald people is best to be small. Style, not Corucher (French humorist) style.” Eric said frankly: “This morning, I met a bald man on a narrow road. We both felt that it seemed a bit unreasonable not to say hello to each other.”
