Prince William finally recognizes his flaw as inevitable fact. Kate has a lot to say about it
The 35-year-old Duke of Cambridge has been battling hair loss since his late twenties and decided to do something about it.
Despite always being in good spirits about the state of his hair, the father-of-two arrived at the Step Into Health event on January 18, 2018, sporting a clean-shaven head.
As reported by All Cute All The Time, the Royal couple joke about his hair all the time. In 2014, Kate reportedly told her husband to put an alpaca on his head.
In fact, Prince William's hair has been making headlines for years, and for all the right reason. William has a positive attitude about it and doesn't try to hide his hair loss.
The same article points out that 'confidence is sexy,' and highlights the fact that not only women suffer from the impossible ideals society imposes on them.
Men are not 'entirely exempt from judgments about their physical appearance,' the article states, especially when it comes to height and hairline.
At 1.91m, Prince William can rest assured that no one would make fun of him for being short. But he has heard his fair share of bald-jokes.
The American Hair Loss Association claims that more than 60% of American men suffer from thinning hair, and men as young as 21 can experience male-pattern baldness.
Tommy Lovell, a hairdresser, suggests stimulating the scalp with natural oils and avoiding products which might damage the hair follicles. He says the best way to deal with baldness, is to shave the hair shorter.
While many products will help to prevent, reverse and treat hair loss, the best advice according to most hairstylists is still to cut it all off. And the Prince just brought buzz cuts back into fashion.
