I would try a 1" so the forehead wouldn't be so pronounced. Are you just receding, or is a bald spot developing in the back?

Thanks! I actually don't really have a bald spot in the back. Just receding and thinning up front.

Definitely think going shorter would make the receding hairline less noticeable.

If you've seen my story elsewhere on this site. I started out as you are describing. Over a period of time, I kept going shorter and shorter until I was BBC. It was a nice journey.  Love being bald.

You likely will not be completely satisfied until its razor smooth, but a lot of guys take it down in steps.
