Gyrfalcon: Indubitably: I'll admit as an hirsute male, bald is beautiful.

"An hirsute"????


Check the rule.

Check it.

Look it up.

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.

Mr. Toadcheese: 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.


Actually I was just going to go with clippers, not bic. No way I could pull that off with this mug! :)

Most white guys that shave their head are trying to cover up thinning hair. Been in that boat before I said fark it and let it be au natural.

You wanna know how I know it's your own dick?

Good luck with that.

Sorry.

I shave my head because it's the only haircut I know how to give myself.

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?
 
2012-10-01 10:59:06 PM
I could give a fark what I look like, shaved bald feels better for me. I've got thin bullshiat on top and it itches, so it's either comb it over or mow it.

Cybernetic: 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.


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.

Holy shiat, how big is your head?

but it's my natural hair!

LOL Patrick Stewart talked about losing his hair, he said he did a long hair comb-over thing for quite a while (no pics seem to exist), then a friend of his, black belt, and his wife had him over for lunch, only to grab him from behind and then she shows up with scissors and cuts it all off with him screaming, and said "now you be yourself- no more hiding"

There are also the guys who shave their heads, or get tattoos, or ride Harleys who are actually very wimpy, only, they want to appear tough.

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:
