I want to know how to say it in real /spoken english if someone has no hair or almost lost all his hair. In my country, we would say "no hair guy" or "bright head guy"...but I don't know how would the native english speaker say?
Well, yes and no. It is the most neutral term for the condition, so he ought to accept it. But I know balding men are often mad about it.
He lost most of his hair.
He has severe/excessive hair loss.
His hairline is thinning or receding.

Yes, there are lots of euphemisms for male-pattern baldness. One of the most recent I've heard is 'follically challenged'.
There are also veiled insults in the same area: 'You can't see the join' means 'He's wearing a Toupée - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia '
The first word comes out in my mind is skinhead that I'm always afraid of
