Q MY HAIR’S DEF­I­NITELY ON ITS WAY OUT. AT WHAT POINT DO I GIVE UP THE FIGHT?

A lit­tle thin­ning on top doesn’t mean it’s game over, par­tic­u­larly if the hair you have left is in good con­di­tion. “Guys can be melo­dra­matic,” says Rory Hazell, se­nior bar­ber at Mur­dock Lon­don. “Lis­ten to oth­ers’ ad­vice when mak­ing the de­ci­sion to shave your head – much of the time it’s just your own in­se­cu­rity.” How­ever, if your once-soft locks are be­com­ing stiff and you see small baby hairs ap­pear­ing, it may be time to con­sider go­ing the full Statham.

Don’t just go at it with the clip­pers, though. This isn’t a DIY job, and one cut does not fit all. “If some­one has a wider head I might use a longer grade – a point­five in­stead of go­ing straight to the bone,” says Hazell. Equally, if your scalp is un­even, a smart trim can dis­guise bumps. Don’t ne­glect af­ter­care ei­ther: “The scalp is a sen­si­tive part of the skin,” says Hazell, who rec­om­mends Mur­dock’s post-shave balm, as “it’s soft and doesn’t clog pores”. Con­sider that ‘ fight’ won.
