You cannot deny it. Everything looks like shit when your face is not properly framed. One day I asked my father to help me with my style. We searched the net all day and all we found were images of fullheads. All style options for bald men looked like shit. There is a reason why there are no bald models. Hair styles for balding men simply don't exist as they all look like shit.

I recently bought a stylish jacket, but it still looks bad because of my hair loss. Everything would be ok if I had hair on my hair line, even buzzcut would work well.

Have you ever tried to cope by using style?
Did it succeed or did you still look awful?
How do you usually dress?

There's nothing inherently wrong with most of those things when they're at their proper place, which is not the case for the hipster normie who elevates those things way too high.

That's the main pattern of this meme, everything feels cringely out of place.

To back to the topic, there are certain styles you can pull off depending on the type of balding. When you're a thick NW3, if the proper facial proportions, you can still look stylish a la Christopher Nolan, when you're diffusing all over, you can still look stylish by buzzing it very short, and when you're bald, you could still look good depending on your facial features, fitness and skin tone.

But of course, the higher you go on the Norwood ladder, the more compensating features are needed.

You do what you can with your options, but I don't think all bald(ing) men automatically look like shit. Last week, one of my Facebook female friends decided it would be a good idea to cut her boyfriend's hair herself during the quarantine, she filmed the whole thing to put on Facebook afterwards, accelerated. She messed up of course, and he ended up slick bald. The guy looked very good, not looking distressed one bit by what had just happened.

It all depends on what you're working with.

The main reason that there are almost no bald models is that models are supposed to represent the highest ideal of human beauty, so of course balding men will fall short.

Ah and yes, there are also the limitations in clothing. For me, my clothing style hasn't changed much whether with hair or no hair, it was always very simple, fitting white t-shirt, jeans, white sneakers, nothing fancy, nothing... chique :D. Once above NW3 and with diffusing in the mix, you can't really afford to be negligent with the way your dress anymore.

I just read this then googled bald style and this came up:

https://www.instagram.com/shavedheadstyle/

Looks like its possible to still have good taste while not holding as many hair follicles as your peers.

A fitted white T can look good on the right man, mate. Especially if that man takes care of his physique.
Will my America ever be great again?
