For blank 1, we have the options barred, barred, bare and bared. 'Bare' means uncovered. This fits the blank best, referring to a bare scalp or bald head. Barren is similar in meaning to bare, but used in the context of low fertility, or to describe a desolate land. So this is not the right choice for the given sentence. Bared is the past tense of the verb form of bare. Barred means blocked. Neither of these fit blank 1. Now, for blank 2, the options are bow, blow, nod and note. To nod to tradition is to acknowledge it, to bow to tradition is to accept it and to deliver a blow to tradition is to go against it. 'Nod' is the option that fits as it is paired with 'bare'.
