Always Bet on Bald!

For some of us (especially me), having a long mane of hair is only a pipe-dream. Fate decided that we don’t need hair and that it’s only really the baddest of asses that have a receding hairline.

The majority of modern ass-kickers have either a shaved head or a receding hairline; are you gonna call them “Baldies”? I doubt it! Here are few of the follicly challenged action stars who prove you don’t need to have hair to be awesome!








Steve Austin; just look at that photo, go ahead, laugh at my hairline. What was that? I can’t hear you because my foot is so far up your ass! Austin keeps straight to DVD old-school action alive and well and is one of today’s best action stars. I’ll always watch an action movie when he’s involved as I think he has great screen presence. He’s a great bad guy actually and I’d like to see him play more villains.

Do you smell what The Rock is cookin’? That’s a can of whupass for anyone mocking his shaved head. He just suits the hell out of it and to me he is the only action star worthy of replacing Arnie. Less kiddie movies, more neck-breaking please Mr. Johnson.






Arguably the action star with the coolest name… and voice, Vin Diesel just oozes bad ass; he’s the kind of guy that utterly suits the shaven head look and his roles in Riddick and the Fast & Furious series just cement him as one of the all time great balding badasses.






My personal hero and to me the greatest action star around at the moment (Under 50 years old), The Stath has had a receding hairline since he first got into movies a good few years back. It has always really given him an authenticity to his tough guy persona and the constant 5 o’clock gives him a gruff charm that the ladies love.






McClaaaaane! Of course Bruce Willis was going to be numero uno; he’s John McClane for goodness sake! Like Statham, he’s had a receding hairline since he got into movies in the “Moonlighting” days. What he lacks in hair he makes up for with charm, charisma and one of the most likable on-screen personas in the business.

So for those of you out there who are losing your hair and thinking about going to Bosley or some hair replacement place, I say sod that! Shave it, work out and become the greatest action hero of all time!
