Actor Matt Damon shaved his head for the movie Elysium and the look works pretty well on him. To pull off a shaved head, you have to have a nicely shaped skull and face and Matt is certainly blessed with those qualities. The bald head works well for Matt and he could certainly do it again.

David Beckham Shaved Head

We might as well call David Beckham the 'Man of 1,000 Hairstyles,' because David Beckham has had more different hairstyles than most guys have shirts. He's had mohawks and faux hawks, long shags and short spikes. He's also sported a shaved head which, while not my favorite look on him, works well. For this style, his hair has been taken down all over with a number one blade.

Jason Statham Shaved Head

Action star Jason Statham is a great example of how to deal with hair loss in men -- shave it off. Of course, this is not a look everyone can pull off, but Jason does it well. The shaved head minimizes the appearance of balding and the facial scruff draws the focus down the face and off of the top of the head. This is exactly the right way to handle going bald.

Tom Hardy Shaved Head

As I recall, the first time I saw Tom Hardy with a shaved head was for his role as Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis and, at the time, I thought the look was kinda creepy, yet kinda cool on him. You still occasionally see him sporting a mostly shaved head, usually with a bit of facial scruff to add balance and he pulls the look off quite well.

Timothy Olyphant Shaved Head

Timothy Olyphant went slick bald for his role in the movie Hitman. He works the look pretty well, but the slick bald head really gives him a slightly mean, unapproachable look. Of course, that was exactly the look he was going for in his portrayal of Agent 47. Having the hair grown out to a little stubble helps soften the look up a bit and, with a nicely shaped skull and face, he works it well.

Seann William Scott Shaved Head

Seann William Scott is also a guy who works a variety of looks -- from shaved to buzzed to shaggy. I first saw him with a shaved head shortly after the premier of The Dukes of Hazzard and I like the look on him. Normally, when he's shaved (as he was in the movie Southland Tales), he sports some type of facial hair as well. The shaved head really enhances his facial features -- he has a very strong jawline and cheek bones, so the facial scruff helps balance that out a bit.

Kelly Slater Shaved Head

Surfer Kelly Slater sheds the "shaggy surfer dude" image by, well, shedding his locks. Of course, Kelly is balding, so he doen't have a lot of choice in the matter. Then again, he's another great example of how to handle a receding hairline -- just take it off. One of the first things you notice about Kelly is how his great eyes really pop. The bald head really enhances this and is a great option if you have a nicely shaped head and great eyes.  Shaving it off is a great way for dealing with thinning hair.

Channing Tatum Shaved Head

Just as David Beckham often changes his hairstyle, so does Channing Tatum. Channing Tatum's haircuts, however, are normally fairly short -- he's done an Ivy League, a faux hawk, a buzzcut, a burr, a pompadour, and every short style in between. The shaved head really gives him an "urban tough guy" kind of look, but he works it well. For this style, his hair is taken down with a number 1 blade all over (a burr).

Vin Diesel Shaved Head

Vin Diesel's shaved head gives him a "likable tough guy" look. Vin is naturally balding, so keeping his head shaved minimizes the thinning top. A bit of facial scruff helps draw the eye down the face, which also draws attention from the balding top. For this style, the hair is taken down to about a 000 blade all over the head, although Vin often sports a slick bald head as well.

Bruce Willis Shaved Head

Bruce Willis has been working the bald head before bald was really all that popular for caucasian guys (I recall seeing him bald for the first time in Twelve Monkeys and thought it was a great look for him. For a period of time in the late 90s, I adopted the look for myself based on Willis taking the plunge. After all these years, the shaved head has become his signature look.

Jake Gyllenhaal Shaved Head

Jake Gyllenhaal has a great head of hair, so it's always much more noticeable when he shaves his head for a role. The first time I saw Jake nearly bald was for his role in the film Jarhead and now, more recently in End of Watch. The look works very well on him as he has a nicely shaped head and face. For Jarhead he went with more of a traditional high and tight haircut, while he is completely shaved for End of Watch. While I like the look, it does seem a shame to shave off a really great head of hair.

Bryan Cranston Shaved Head

Actor Bryan Cranston shaves his head each year to portray cancer patient/meth cooker Walter White in AMC Television's Breaking Bad. While not my favorite look on Bryan, he works it well (and it really fits his character on the show). While bald, he normally keeps a mustache or a goatee which works well. If you opt for a shaved head, I always recommend a little bit of facial hair to add balance to the look.
