Always curious, never brave enough. The bald look is striking. No haircut, same unchanging look.

Several attempts in the mid 1990s, then 10 years later. Then finally, came to this website and took 30 day challenge. After 30 days, I kept going. That was 5 slick bald years ago. And my first and only beard came a month after going bald. That stayed and has expanded.

But then it becomes your trade mark look....

And a great look it is, Mr Jules, you have style!

I wonder what the percentage is for guys staying sly after 30 days. I'll bet it's pretty high. Just seems you get really hooked on the shaved head look. Well...I suppose if we didn't like it, we wouldn't all be here and bald.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

Personally it just happened for me.
My mum always cut my hair growing up with clippers and scissors she bought from the store.
When I was 13 she decided she wanted me to grow my hair, but I wanted it short.
I got a hold of her clippers secretly, and clipped on the #2 attachment, thinking it would give me 2 inches of hair.
I shaved off all of the hair on the top of my head before I noticed.
After the initial shock, I just kept doing that.
By the time I turned 14, I started trimming it down to a 1, then a 0.
When I was 15 I tried shaving smooth, but our cheap razors gave me a full head of razor burn.
I tried with electric razors and what not for years.
Eventually I just kept shaving to a 0, periodically growing my hair back out.
Last year, at 22, I got a safety razor and gave getting a smooth head a shot once again.
As you can imagine, I got cuts all over again, but kept at it. After a few months I got my head smooth WTG for the first time.
I kept up that routine, but eventually went down the path a few of you may have experienced as well.

Nair.

Naturally, this was a bad idea, and so I stopped shaving and took it as a sign I was meant to grow hair.
Well, when I have hair, I am always fighting the urge to shave, so a few months ago I gave up again and cut it all down to nothing.
This time I started shaving with the grain once again for a few weeks.
Then I found this forum.
I was a bit of a hipster, liking to say I shaved with a safety razor. But, after reading a few posts here about the Mach 3, I decided to give it a shot.
A very gentle shave later; I got my first ever smooth head.
I've been in love with it since.

My hair grows pretty rapidly, so I have to shave every 24 hours or so to keep it perfectly smooth.
I'm currently in the process of toughening my scalp for ATG shaving, but it's slowly getting easier.
I've scalped myself a few times, but it's worth it in the long run.

Sorry for the long reply. I've had issues signing up, and got a little excited to finally be registered; and to find a topic right away that I wanted to comment on.

you got the perfect look for sly. hard to imagine any other way. if my hair didn't hit the floor by your age, i would be BBC.
