This look is new to you and all the people that know you. In time no one including yourself will give it a second thought.

Neither shaving hair or eyebrows is a permanent change.  If you are wearing your hair short now, it will grow back to that length quickly if you just do not like the sly look.  Eyebrow shaving is a little more of a bold statement, but they grow back as well.

Since you are 17, have you mentioned this to your parents?

Good point! I haven't really told my parents as I haven't quite decided on the sly look (although I'm probably going to do it) but they haven't found any problems with my haircuts before, they very much leave it up to me and don't care. Also my girlfriend likes my hair shorter and shorter (but that doesn't necessarily mean she'll like the Sly look).

I am in Barber and I will give you my brutally honest opinion:

 first I know you're only 24 years old but your hair is thinning severely and the way you have it cut now it makes  you look unkempt and  and gives the impression that you're not a healthy guy.

 Second you have enough here that you don't "have" to shave it now if you don't want to.  you were doing equally well with the high bald fade on the back and sides and leaving the top just as it is that way the color will all be on the top of your head and it will not accentuate the fact that there is fitting her up there there's no hair on the back and sides to point out the fact that your thinning on top!

 but if you "choose" to shave it,  you are going to look great!   you're going to look healthy, vigorous and confident!

 but you cannot just shave all that here it has to be clipper down as close to the scalp as possible before it is shaved?   don't try to do this without clipper to get them first it will hurt and you make a mess of your scalp !   if you don't own the clippers just got here Barber and tell him that you want your head shavedA good tradional man's Barbershop will be able to not only clipper it down to the scalp With a bareber's 0000 blade clipper,  but will also Shave it with a straight razor for you.  After that you can easily maintain  it yourself buy shaving either every day or every other day.   if you wait more than three days the hair will be long enough to do I have to clipper it down again before you shave it.

 but as has been said before you absolutely must keep it for 30 days need to give your brain time to form a new mental image of yourself and your gift need to let your friends and family start to form a new normal for you in their own heads.

and I agree with you I think it would look really good on you with a goatee instead of a full beard.   COPA much work we can cut them groomed look for you it will make you look like you care
about how you look  and that you're not just "bald and too lazy to shave your face"!

Just dropping a minor update before I head out for the weekend. I'll post a photo soon.

But, I'm not going to lie to you, kind sir.. I've already done the deed without clippers. Honestly, I'd only sustained one injury. A small dot of blood on my temple, probably from the razor going over a pimple so small that I'd never noticed it. I've had several people look over my head, and I think that only one person thought that they saw barely a noticeable bit or two of hair towards my crown. It wasn't really that painful a process without the clippers. I trimmed it as close as I could all over with scissors and then took the razor to it.

So, you could really tell that it was thinning? I looked sickly, even? That seems a bit extreme an evaluation to me, no? :'( lol I didn't think that my hair was that far gone at that point!

I went for a haircut awhile back and the barber did tell me it was a bit thinned or receding which was when I first got that sinking feeling of.. Oh crap.. Forgot what he said specifically, but pretty much everyone I've told about it said they didn't notice anything like that. Most around me said I had all of my hair, so why shave? I still wanted to try it, though.

I'll admit it was less noticeable in natural lighting for me, but I'm not so naive to think that it couldn't still be noticeable for others from their perspective, although I'd like to think that those closest to me wouldn't lie to me to try not to hurt my feelings, which ironically would hurt me even more by lying to me.

Most people I deal with at my delivery stops when I was working yesterday didn't seem to hate it. My boss' friend who's not always the kindest with his words (though he just likes to joke around in a jerky way) actually said I have a perfect head shape for it. Maybe two other people also said that I have a totally smooth head, so it could've been worse.

This corny bit of dialogue also happened at a bar I deliver to, with the bartender.

Me: Hey, notice anything different about me?
Her: Yeah, you've got no hair on your freaking head!
Me: I did this to test your love for me. I needed to know if you just wanted me for my hair.
Her: *laughing*
Me: So, do you still think I'm sexy?
Her: Of course! (Or something like that. lol)
Me: That's all I wanted to hear!

She said I rocked the look, just needed to get some color on the newly exposed skin. She's also pretty cute but hey, she's a friendly gal and was probably just being nice anyway. That was the highlight of the day for sure, though.

I can roll with the light-hearted jokes and what not but I'm just hoping that the new look won't totally screw me from ever finding a relationship. Not that the cuties were lining up before, but I guess that could also be because I'm not exactly chasing after them either, I'm kind of a home body. Can't meet them if I'm never putting myself out there. :-P

When my sister saw me later in the day she couldn't stop smiling, said it just looked weird, but liked it. So that's good.

I'm already pretty happy with it. Definitely gonna take a little time to truly get accustomed to, but I'm already feeling it. The new sensations can feel really weird but the breeze with the windows door in the car feels great, for example. Rain drops hitting my head feels like pins and needles dropping on it, only it somehow feels good rather than uncomfortable. It's cool.

Goatee is nearly 5 inches long. Will grow handlebar and goatee for another month

Looks good, Mr. Jules.  What do you plan to do to it after another month?

Needs a tidy up but love the bald and beard look, balances everything out

That is a good looking beard, Mahaw.  Do you plan to grow longer?
