I find Steve Buscemi attractive in an odd way. He's the quirky hot guy.

Like me, he's got the advantage of a symmetrical face. Comes in handy when you can't hide the receding hairline any more.

The Why Not Guy: Jude Law in decline is still weapons grade hot - but I will say he's not aging well.


He's aging normally. Saying it the way you did makes it sound like it's below average or it is somehow his fault or otherwise a bad thing, the way young dumb kids think older people are ucky and let that shallowness carry over into adulthood.

"not aging well"
is someone like Iggy Pop, or a hundred other rock stars(or people living that party life, or just a hard life, that takes a larger than regular toll on the human body) that looked like a healthy 50 at 25 and got worse as time went on.

Yes, he's aging normally. That's fine for you and I, but for one of the world's most handsome actors, a wealthy man who makes his living in part based on his looks, it's aging poorly. Compare Jude to Colin Farrell (36) and Jude looks a lot more than two years older. Heck, Brad Pitt is 48 and look younger than Jude.

Of course, they chose an unflattering photo so there's that as well.

I used to be kind of obsessed with my hair being perfect.

Then I turned 34 or so and noticed a small but conspicuous patch of bald on the rear. I started to panic. Was entirely too self-conscious about it because my hair was otherwise awesome. One day, noticing the spot growing larger, I sighed heavily, got drunk, and buzzed it all to what amounts to be stubble. Because dammit, I wasn't going to be one of those guys who embarrassingly tries to hold on when the cause is clearly lost.

Sure, I don't get the same looks from girls on the street anymore, but I'm not hideous. I certainly miss having lush hair but have simply accepted it as my plot in life. And you know what?

I own this sh*t. Too many guys will go to great lengths to hide it when they should just shave/buzz it and move on with life.

/bald on top and shaved close


. . . and dickfreckle, I'm getting to the point where I could start thinking about this but have a few concerns. I already keep it pretty short and close but . . .

1. How close is close? (I have clippers so you can give me a measurement, if'n you want.)
2. And this is the big one--how many times a week do you shave it? I'm not crazy about shaving my face every day, so I don't relish the thought of shaving my entire skull.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Most guys think balding is a big deal and truthfully most women don't care. As long as you shave it close and OWN IT you are good to go. Oh, and Jude, I so would.

I just asked this question a few minutes ago then realized this thread began sometime yesterday . . .

. . . but farbiez, could you look at my questions two posts up and, to the best of your ability, give some suggestions?

T'anks!
 
2012-12-03 02:01:12 PM
1. No plastic guards on the clippers. (Occasionally for an outing I'll go the rest of the way and hit it up with a razor)
That's what I do anyhow, you can use a guide and leave a bit of length there.
2. If you trim it nice and close, you can, depending on how fast your hair grows and your tastes(concerning how long you'll care to let it go or if it grows in odd patterns/directions), go maybe a couple of weeks or more.

I sometimes go months, but mine grows slow and thin(as in my hair is really fine to begin with). A month is right about when my hair is long enough to show "messy" (IE a hat band, or matted from sleeping). At two, I almost need to comb it.

Once a week would work great for most people if you want real consistency of appearance.

Random tips, advice, and experiences relating to shaving / keeping it short:

Be wary if you decide to shave with a razor. Razor burn is a real hazard, as are pimples or ingrown hairs, and excising thin slices of skin(the scalp isn't as pliable and giving as your cheeks). Just like your face, find an aftershave or lotion that works best for you. I prefer high alcohol content, really leaves those micro wounds grease free and sterylized. Some people can't handle the burn or their skin will dry out. Maybe apply aftershave twice a day(or wash gently mid-day) if you're like me and a bit greasy.

Friends and family will often rub your head, because apparently that's what people do, whether they know it annoys you or not, among some people especially if it annoys you.
These asshole people then comment on how they think a greasy head is "gross", so I be sure to tell them that it's no different than their hair soaking up theirs, ever smell that hat you wear all the time? Here's a newsflash, it farking stinks because the grease in that is months or years old and you get it on your head every time you wear it.
/have a couple in-laws that piss me off to no end, no matter what the topic is

In a situation where you'll care what those people think, it's no big problem to clean it gently a 2-3 times a day in a bathroom, even just a wet towel is a good de-greaser, or in a pinch, rub with wet but clean hands, and use paper towels to dry.

People will obsessively rub your head, much of it unwanted warm meaty sweaty man hands of that annoying inlaw (some random stranger guys will still want to but will usually ask, usually). As a guy that bugs the shiat out of me when men don't ask, but it's sorta hot when women do.

A nice side benefit of actually using a razor is that when it does grow a little it's perfectly even. Even the best trimmers/clippers can leave stubble with varying lengths.

If you like it as close as possible, use a beard trimmer, they tend to have smaller teeth and get closer to the skin, but are typically smaller and take longer.

Have a spotter with good eyesight or lots of mirrors and lights. Nothing worse than having a missed eyebrow on the back of your head.

If you use a razor, trim it down first. Longer hair will tend to lie down and escape the razor quite often(and you can't feel it when wet/soapy/shaving creamed. With short sharp stubble it's easy to shave by feel.

I tend to avoid razor shaving in hot / sweaty weather, sweating into razorburn is bad, stings and raises the risk of infection.

I knew some guys that would lightly powder the dome to help keep it dry and not so shiny, never worked for me as the first place I sweat is my scalp.(Was in texas mid-summer in the military, so sweating was a way of life, haven't tried it now that I live in the wastelands of South Dakota, heh)

That's about all I can think of I suppose, random I know, i'm going on too little sleep to organize.

All in all, I like it. Practically maintenance free(no combing, no washing(ie working shampoo in deep), if it's short enough just use soap(of course, I use liquid soap, if you're a bar guy you may have issue there), no drying)

A little tact and consideration requiring maintenance is no big deal once you get in habits of washing/wiping.

Sweating is the only real downfall, it'll drip in your eyes, run paths down your ears you thought were impossible, drip on your glasses if you wear them, or run down the stems, etc. Having stubble will help that, where you have stubble(will wick/cling some and cool faster, like a CPU heatsink, .... where there is stubble at any rate) if it's not too humid.

Then again, I pretty much exclusively sweat through my head, and a lot of it, maybe that won't be an issue for you.

I have taken to wearing a hat or bandana when I'm doing sweaty work, or have a rag/handkerchief tucked in a pocket.

Just like with the grease thing, moron's won't realize that other people have hair that wicks it off the skin.

But when it comes to those people, whatever. It's a good indicator that they're an asshole and you should maybe ignore them as much as possible.

My husband used to have a comb over before I met him. He went bald at 17. I begged him to cut it off. It was like a fear he had. I arranged for my hair dresser (who also has quite the rack) to do the deed. I told her of his trepidation. She wore the lowest top she had and my husband didn't even notice.
 
2012-12-03 02:58:04 PM
Hi Cargo. I can't compete with the excellent advise of omeganuepsilon, but from a female perspective, if in doubt go shorter rather than longer. Personally, I'd suggest going to a barber and watch closely. There are guys that can do their own hair and it looks great and others who look like their mom did it. I think the key is a smooth overall look and the sideburns and back of neck lines are key. I'd invest in a quality trimmer for clean lines in between cuts.

Damn skippy, there are guys out there that just look better shaving it all and being bold about it as opposed to having the ring of hair, the big-arse spot gleaming in the midst of the thatch, or any cover-up that they'll attempt. Plenty of guys at my work do that in the summer, and can pull it off well. I hope, when my husband finally gets to a point where it's looking goofy, that he surrenders to that approach.

Plenty of good looking guys that shave it off, out there.

Of course, on some the ring of hair can be pulled off just fine as well where they may look odd completely bald. Larry David, Danny DeVito to name a couple, imo. To pull that off, imo, people need to trim off the straggers growing on top. Individual hair in such a state will tend to glow in the wrong light and look very odd.

omeganuepsilon: stuff


All of this stuff.

I recently bought "balding" clippers specifically designed for head shaving. The teeth are much smaller than on a standard clipper, and it gives a very close, comfortable, even shave.

I would never take a razor blade to my head, razor burn on my neck is bad enough.

And, although you do have to take measures to avoid getting sweat in your eyes, a shaved head is incredibly comfortable, especially in the summer. You never have to worry about your hair being messy, ever, and you can dunk your head in water to keep cool.

Head shaver here...

A couple years ago I found a set of clippers that had a longer cutting surface - maybe twice the width of a normal set - and they were curved to match the curve of your skull. I thought "what a great Idea" except that the clippers themselves were crap. I used them once and never again.
 
2012-12-04 05:21:55 PM
I'm pretty sure I never mentioned the risk of sunburn.

I never used to use sunscreen, now it's a MUST. If conditioned some people can stand a certain amount of sun, but a suddenly bare area like a shaved scalp can be disasterous. A peeling dome is sort of gross, and that's only the mildest of burns, get a bad one where the skin cracks and bleeds, ugh...

Even if you wear a hat, you don't want that tanline on the back of the head, and some material lets the harmful light pass right through and you can get some odd patterns...or the holes in come caps.

Certainly, sunburn on a tight scalp can be painful, there's no give like the rest of the body, so you feel every little thing. Neck is no fun for sunburn because when you move your head it wrinkles and agitates the skin.
