At what age did you shave your head? (older guys)
« on: August 19, 2012, 04:21:34 AM »
I was 58 when I first shaved my head (BBC).

Just curious about some of you other guys, who later in life became sly.  At what age did you shave your head and did you NEED (BBN) to or just WANT (BBC) to?

55-I'm now 70. Why I didn't do it fifteen years before that now escapes me. I had a full head of hair and just grew tired of the maintenance and the cost.

The longer I'm bald I wonder the same thing.  Why did I not shave my head years ago, but I was not ready for it back then. 

You guys on here have been a big inspiration, demonstrating that a bald head is a beautiful thing.

My 47th birthday.... five years ago. And Mother Nature definetly pushed me to do it. Looking back at photos of myself for the 8-10 years before I shaved.... I should have done it MUCH sooner.

I was 47 when I first shaved slick bald. I used to dye my hair, what was left of it and my beard. I did this since my late 20s. I am 48 now will turn 49  on Monday. People have told me I look younger with my slick head and gray stubble beard. Apparently the dye made me look like I was trying to hard to hold onto youth.I am so much happier with my look now than I was in my 20s and 30s. Maybe age has something to do with that. Oh and xabydaddy I think 45 fits into the older guy category. For what it's worth I thought you were about 38 so you should have no worries. Age is just a number. :)

For me, I shaved at 63. It has been about four years now.  I think?  Having more and more grey moments now at 67.

In '95 when I was 54 I went from a no guard buzz to shaved smooth.

6 years ago, after over two decades of a no-guard buzz, I went sly at 49.

YES. Probably anything over about 25 or 30 would qualify.  Or maybe I should say as a local restaurant says.  If you are old enough to ask for the senior discount, you are old enough to have it.

I like hearing the stories of they guys who are long term BBC! I can see myself in that category someday. 10-15 years of being bald by choice.  Baldness does not run in my family.  But I love being BBC.
