But there's a difference between shaved bald (Michael Jordan) and thinning.

It's a well known fact that when a woman sees a bald man from the back, she immediately associates his gleaming, bare scalp with the head of penis. If the man turns around at precisely the right moment after the association, the woman's psyche, without her even being aware of it, takes that association a step further and assumes a natural virility and sexual prowess on the part of the male in question. Sex is pretty much a guarantee at that point, which is bald men with any self-awareness always stand where they can use their natural surroundings (mirrors, windows, etc.) to see what's going on behind them. You don't want to turn around at the wrong moment, after all (and sometimes it's best to let some of the women just slip on by).

My wife likes my balding pate. When the hair in front turns into a island d' coiffure, then I will consider shaving.
I like the idea of not shaving the remaining ring of hair and getting a Riff-Raff sort of a look going.
 
2012-10-01 02:57:13 PM
Yes, we are.

I started balding when I was in my mid-twenties, and been shaving ever since (33 now).

I can say that I am more confident than I would be with the horseshoe hairline I would have if I did not shave.


Fortunately, I have a nice, shapely head, save for a series of faint scars at the top of my forehead which makes me look badass. That, plus the obligatory goatee to hide my weak chin.

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

My hair's not cooperated with me for quite awhile, thinning out and all. It's on thing to be thinning on top, but I've always had body-free, super thin hair. Styling products have little effect unless it's physically gluing it together. I look fine in a hat, but without the hat it pretty much goes less orderly than Nick Nolte's mugshot.

If you have an unfortunate, potato shaped head, then it doesn't do you any favors. If you have a magnificently sculpted skull like I do, you'll find that it's a way better style than a hairline that's been receding since the 8th grade.

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.

I had dated one back when we were both about 20; even then he had a mean receding hairline.

Well it is a style choice. One of the few someone that is balding can actually make. It's a comb over or tattoos otherwise. Few people aside from the diseased actually lose all of their hair.

That's like saying to someone that cuts and combs their hair that they're just pretending, because their hair doesn't grow like that.

I shaved my head for 10 years and - to a certain extent - I will vouch for TFH (didn't bother to RTFA).

Not only was I finding plenty of sexual gratification during my Days of Baldness, but I discovered that people automatically gave me a wide berth when walking on the sidewalk (I like to think this was because I presented a boldly intimidating front and not, instead, because I reeked), and people were much more quick to notice and to listen to me when I wanted/needed it.

Today, the reverse of all those things is true. I am a sad, lonesome man who lacks confidence, appears weak, and blends with the crowd. But I am planning to go out dressed as Mr. Heisenberg for Halloween, so maybe the baldness will bring back the chicks, the respect, and the attention I crave!

And eggrolls is right - smiling is certainly rarer under the bald pate.

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.

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.

How is shaving your head "trying too hard"? It is just a style choice, just like my neighbor likes his flattop, or my coworkers rocking the "trendy" Mexican doos. Your post is pretty foolish. I imagine youd be the old fogey telling all the kids in the 60s their hair is way too long. Also, as the first couple posts in this thread are evidence of, lots of girls find shaved heads attractive.

Try not too look like Im trying too hard for the old fogeys, or look good for the opposite sex... Clear winner here.

Similar issue. I have a full head of hair, but mine started getting streaks of grey when I was 17. By the time I was 30, it was salt and pepper. By the time I was 35, it was pure silver. I'm glad it went silver instead of gray, but alas, I used to have wavy/curly hair. That went away when it went gray. The only down side (or up side, depending on the ego check) has been that young store clerks and waiters have been giving me a senior citizens discount for some years. Women, who seem more sensitive about gray hair don't do this. In fact, they seem to like gray haired younger men.

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.

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.

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

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.

aww, that's sweet. I was just teasing.

The last guy I dated kept his at a marine corps crew cut, I asked if being a former marine was why he kept his hair so close but he said it was because he had just started to go grey. He had been really busy with work and hadn't had the time to get his cut on for a few weeks, so I finally had the opportunity to see his 'grey'; barely any!!! I thought he looked hot with the sprinkling; told him so, too. Oh well.

My experience is:

1) You are likely to cut yourself a few times the first time, no matter how careful you are, just like the first time you shaved your face. (If this didn't happen the first time you shaved your face, never mind.) I think that it's a combination of learning the correct angle and pressure for that part of your head, the skin having to "toughen up" somewhat, and your hitting moles, bumps, skin tags, and/or creases or ridges that you don't really know that they're there until you slice part of them off. Even if you don't usually use a styptic pencil, it might be a good idea to have one around.

2) Seriously consider getting a HeadBlade. You don't have to worry about having one of the fancy models, just go with the basic, which may be available at your local drugstore (Walgreen's carries them). If you use one, you'll probably have to touch up with your regular razor, especially around the ears, on the neck, and right at the base of your skull where the neck starts.

3) Because of the likelihood that you'll nick yourself, I'd suggest doing it on a Friday night the first time so that you can heal a bit over the weekend (assuming that you work M-F, or however else your schedule works). You'll get practice in sticking little bandaids on your own noggin, which is surprisingly tricky.

4) It's totally cool to spend at least a half-hour after your first shave stroking your own scalp. Even better if your girlfriend/boyfriend does the job.

Kanemano: Which one would you like to meet in a dark alley?


Well, both #1 and #2 I'm sure I would be meeting in a dark alley to buy drugs from.

#1 would probably want to hang out and listen to good music, while #2 would probably burn me for the drug money.

Sorry :)

Slartibartfaster: Sticky Hands: However, there is always

I accept Stalin, I refute Mao
(not on authority, both are obvious examples of authority, one is less of an example of balding)



The evil professor looking guy is Lenin.

Stalin had most most kick ass head of hair that ever kicked ass, and arguably the most dangerous mustache of all time.

I mean just look at the man: 

flashyourstache.files.wordpress.com 

Benito Mussolini was thinning, and later shaved, and looked a lot like Putin.

Young Lenin though... what a goober:
www.stel.ru
Definitely better rocking the bald head-goatee combo.


Would you disrobe if either asked ?


Well with those two particular fellers, you really don't have much of a choice...

However, assuming I swung that way, and actually had a choice, I'd go for young Stalin
Though young Mao would make a good trap.

huh.. that took an odd turn...

Can you pick a balding man that has actually HAD authority ?

Pick a culture, pick 3 leaders that had authority, count how many are bald.

Let's start with a chicken shiat immature nation, go through the founding fathers of the disunited states of america.

You offer Jean Luc (which you are apparently unaware is a fictional character that is not actually in charge of a spaceship named after an English sailing ship)

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.


I'm not hideously bald, but do have a silver good-sized spot on the crown that happened around age 34 (currently 38). It was pretty traumatizing. Now I just clip it very, very short and I can't believe I didn't do this sooner, even with a full head of hair. Not shaved, though, because I look like an idiot. It's basically a 5 o'clock shadow on the head, and it looks good. You can't really see the bald spot when it's that short.

Bonus: No more getting to work early to fix my helmet-hair.
I use the same soap on my head that I do on my body, so no more shampoo cluttering up my shower.
Save $35 a month in cuts, using a Wahl clipper instead and my neighbor who trims the back of my neck in exchange for me listening to her whine about her husband.

A pro-tip to bald guys, at least white ones: Dude, grow some facial hair. It looks much better and distracts from the bald. Plus, it's just badass to have a beard. I love mine.

Mr. Toadcheese: My experience is: ... 4) It's totally cool to spend at least a half-hour after your first shave stroking your own scalp.


One piece of comment I saw when I was looking around before doing it myself was someone saying something similar to "Feel free to rub it and see what it feels like. But be prepared for everything to feel different, from hats to pillows." And I'd add "wind", as someone else said. I live in Wisconsin, so I'm a bit worried about the implications of that one for late January/February, but whatever, I'm sure it'll be fine. :-)

The more hair you lose, the more head you get.
 
2012-10-01 07:31:07 PM
I started thinning about 26 (32 now), I have been contemplating going "Full Baldy" this year as it has been getting a bit worse, but instead just keep using the clippers at crew cut, as i still have a bit left and I think shaving as often as I have to for my beard on my scalp would be a total pain in the ass. Plus I am kinda scared what my head shape and ears would look like all the way. (see Rick Scott or Golem). I just need to get back to working out more and keep the crew cut for the rugged look.

Also, what's with people giving a crap of somebody's choice to shave it off saying it's pretending. News flash, the dude who has the shaved head doesn't give a crap what you think. Same thing with people who criticize guys with thinning hear for wearing hats out in the daytime. . . hint-it's called Scalp Burn, dumbass. I know my hair is thinning and don't care what you think, but don't want to go around inviting the pain of burning the crap out of my scalp just because you think I'm trying to hide something!

I like chicks with buck teeth, glasses, and big noses. Flat chested.

Why?
Buck teeth = over bite = oral fixation.
Glasses = over strained eyes= reads a lot = Smart.
Big noses = unlikely to snore when sleeping.
Flat chested = easier to roll over when they do snore.

Genetically perfect model of a female, if you ask me.

Started thinning at 16. Didn't notice because my hair was so thick to begin with, and long. Then I joined the Army and had to cut it short, still, I looked normal. By 2006, I had a serious bald spot, and the top was very thin. Had tried shaving once in 2008, didn't like the way it felt with a hat on, so I grew it back out. Halloween last year, broke up with my last girlfriend and decided to try shaving again. Every time I go to my local bar, most of the women take at least a minute of their time to rub my soft and smooth head, and I have gotten more female attention in this last year than all other time I was single combined. I also have a goatee that I can nearly tuck into my shirt collar, and women love to twirl it around between their fingers.

All my pics are on my facebook, and I sure as hell am not linking to that here.

When I started thinning, I really worried about what people thought about my looks, and I researched EVERYTHING I could about 'fixes' for the 'problem.' I spent some money on scalp treatments (completely wasted), used Rogaine for a time (sort of worked, but stained everything my head came in contact with), and actually went to the Hair Club for Men. Met Sy Sperling, and was convinced that I'd be happier with more hair. Realized that it's just a toupee after all, and ALL toupees are eventually found out.

Had second thoughts, and researched surgical options. After seeing some bad results, and how much pain people went through for what I thought were marginal results at best....I decided just to roll with it. I went in, and told them to buzz me. I don't shave my head, but I keep it buzz-cut at a #2 or shorter, and I'm damn happy with it.

My CSB happened when I was pulling through a drive-up near BWI airport, and I happened to have an Orioles hat sitting on the front seat of my car. The girl at the window jumped back, because she thought I was this guy:

Now, that's a compliment I'll take.

No one seems to have linked to a pic of the shaved-headed (surprise!) author, of the Wharton School faculty:

https://opimweb.wharton.upenn.edu/profile/1682/printFriendly

The study in question was published online in July ($$$ to view), but not yet in print. So, who knows anything about his methods or the (ha-ha) "universality" of his findings. Plus the esteemed journal "Social Psychological & Personality Science" is all of three years old. Do these academics need yet another journal to get their stuff published in? No wonder their critics call it "pseudo-science"...

/Shaved heads are presently more commonplace among some strata of Western men than in decades past. What other "facts" are actually in evidence?

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.


LOL the director was planning on carrying over his locks for Obadiah Stane, but Bridges saw the character and said "no way, character expect him to be bald!"
But also I think he wanted to avoid being typecast as "The Dude" as that sort of association wouldn't fly there.  Of course he had no intention of bringing and Dudeness over to Stane.

Still have hair past my shoulders (41 yrs old, off my lawn). I've cut it fairly short twice (1996 and 2003), but otherwise, I prefer it long. Manly? Don't give a shiat what anyone thinks about it. I like it, my wife likes it and my employer doesn't care. Not cutting it again if I don't have to. Bald more manly? Meh. It just means you have less/no hair. Hair has nothing to do with how manly or dominant you are, with some notable exceptions:
