I like the extremes. Bald, or long ass hair down to their asses.

CapeFearCadaver: Meh, genes. There's about five or six of them that I know and each one started going bald late 20's to early 30's. I think it sucked worse for them because they were all metal musicians and the long hair to begin with. Plenty of other guys around here still have their flowing locks.


Well, crap, it's really that easy? OK, gals--don't name your baby boys Gene.

And Gene, Gene, the dancing machine? Totally bald by the time he was 18. Sad.

I held off shaving for a while, but after a lot of soul searching (and a TF discussion thread), I finally decided to take the plunge.. That was something like 8 years ago...yeesh.

Now, going more than two days without shaving, I feel like a damned caveman.

Technically, he went from creepy dentist to spineless father to badass druglord.


Yeah, he's well-known for Malcolm in the Middle and especially Breaking Bad, but people forget that he played Tim Whatley in Seinfeld.

HotWingConspiracy: karmaceutical: Black dudes can pull this look off. White dudes who try, we all know your are just going bald. You don't have to pretend anymore.

I don't get this. How is shaving your head pretending you aren't going bald?


Beats me. I shave my head because I'm mostly bald. It's not a secret, I figure most people know as much already, and if they asked, I'd freely admit to it. Shaved looks better than the horseshoe. It's the dignified solution to hair loss.

I shave my head... and have a long goatee.

And I'm pretty sure I'm the first one to ever do that.

/not balding, just hate paying for haircuts.
 
2012-10-01 04:02:49 PM  
My friend has been going bald since we were 12. He looks better shaving it. I have to admit I'd love it if he grew it WAY long and went for the village elder look.
 
2012-10-01 04:03:03 PM  
I was in the service with a guy how shaved his but. He hated his hairy butt and assumed women would too. It was pretty damned hairy.

Marcintosh: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: No paying for haircuts.
No buying combs, brushes, shampoo or conditioner.
No waking up and having to shower to fix your hair.
No worrying about your hair being messed up in pictures.
Pretty much a win all around.

Not so, I had to shave my head every other day. If I don't I begin to look like Aqualung going for the interview.
I used more shaving cream in six months than I did in three years.
And then there's the perspiration otherwise known as "That Nasty Glistening on you Noggin, Bro"
Some will deal with it some won't - I'll be bald eventually I suppose. It's okay, I had hair down to my belt so, I'm good with it.
I don't care for Dave Barry's sense of humor but one day he pointed out that bald white guys look like giant thumbs. I don't know about you but I did so, I let my comb over come back.

Besides everyone at work thought I was going through chemo and never asked about it. Bunch of idiots


I've started losing my hair before I turned 20 so I started trimming it. For the past 8 years or so I've been using a trimmer once a week and I'm good for the whole week. Before I got married I used to do the haircut on Friday before heading out but now I just do it on Sunday night.

Have been using the same $20 trimmer for 3 years now and no problems. I don't think I'll ever do the fully shaved thing because I'm lazy but I might increase the frequency to twice a week if the wife wants me to. She says that I look 10 years younger after I trim my hair and beard.
 
2012-10-01 04:04:41 PM  
If I started losing my hair, I'd shave my head in a heartbeat rather than do some lame comb-over or just have that fringe around the sides. But since my hairline is firmly in place, it's not an issue for me.
 
2012-10-01 04:08:12 PM  

Oznog: Hmm, what about the shaved w/trimmed beard look? (none of these are me)


Jeff Bridges looked like a total badass with the shaved head in Iron Man. Hard to believe that's the same guy who played The Dude.

I just checked out your profile, you have been to almost everywhere in Canada except my home province lol.

I truly love Manitoba, it's not nearly as bad as a lot of outsiders make it.

That said, can't wait to move to Michigan with my fiancé and her two boys



From Manitoba I lived there for school

This year +10C in February clearly a sign of the end of times.

Having seen my grandfather I worry for the sake of my hair. I will enjoy having too much hair now because I have no clue how long or if it will last.

That, coming from a guy.
I'll chime in and say, the gal on the lap does nothing. Nor does his hair. He is definitely hotter with his bald head.

CapeFearCadaver: All of my guy friends who shave their heads did so strickly because of premature baldness.


First time I shaved my head, it was for Halloween. A bunch of red makeup, a couple of glue-on horns and a black leather trenchcoat, and I was an awesome Satan.

I liked the look (bald, not Satan), and kept it for a while. It was especially great in the summer - so much more comfortable than having hair. Eventually, I wised up and started growing it back in the winter.

I shave my head and I am not going bald. My friends wife saw me one day after growing my hair out. She acted shocked that my hair wasn't thinning. I guess a lot of people think if you shave your head its just to cover up going bald. I do it because it is easier than getting it cut all the time.

okay, so Putin might still have a little peach fuzz up there, but he's close enough to bald for me.

Some things I've learned since shaving my head:

* For some reason, everyone expects me to have a motorcycle. Yeah...I walk into walls and could lose my balance in a car
* It took me a solid month not to notice the difference in how the air currents felt
* Nair is NOT my friend

Shaved my head to be a hari krishna (for Halloween) some years ago--- was asked many times if I was a white supremacist. Maybe I should get some color in my tattoos.

Saw that big spot and was like "NOPE!" Just grew it out again. I'm at the same level of balding, with much more grey.

Yeah, that's an alternative, if I want to wear a hat all the time.

The other problem is my girlfriend. When we met, I was shaving my head year-round. When I started growing it back in the winter, she decided that she liked me better with hair. I'm unwilling to forgo the comfort of being bald in the summer, but if 6 months of hair makes her happy, so be it...
