IMHO, you looked much better bald and shorter bread. But, to each his own. While I still have mostly a full head of hair, it has gotten fine and dull, so I like wearing the baldie style.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

This was after exactly 2 years of growing out my hair. The beard is @ 9.5 months. It actually looks better then I expected especially with the paired beard and from the front the thinning hair on top isn't really noticed. I have been on a hair loss treatment plan for 6 months starting in July of 2022 with some progress, but the crown remains the most stubborn to grow back in. Just thought I'd drop a quick update on this, and to let people know I'm still around and doing pretty well otherwise.

Do whatever makes you happy but always bear in mind that you’re fighting a losing battle. The thinning hair may not be too noticeable form the front, but the receded hairline is.  And people are not always going to be viewing you from that optimal angle. 

Your beard looks great, but IMO long hair really only works with an intact hairline.

You definitely should do what you like best, and granted we're biased...but damn you look 10x better (and younger) bald.

I used to want long hair when I was younger. But then a few months ago I had a nightmare that I had hair again lol.
If only I could figure out how to get rid of the hair that still comes back...
