Fewer BBC and fewer beards
« on: May 06, 2023, 08:25:05 AM »
So I meet with the same group of men four nights a week thereís probably 50 to 60 guys in the group and that anyone meeting there are at least 30 of them present. There is a great range in ages from the early 30s to the early 70s.

Over the last year I have noticed that there are fewer and fewer guys who are both by choice also thereís a noticeable increase in the number of the younger guys who are bold by nature who have allowed the horseshoe fringe to grow back to at least a visible length.

Also over the last six months quite a few of them who had full beards have a going clean-shaven or more often going back to sporting just a mustache.  This phenomena appears to have occurred quite quickly and I noticed that each time a guy does it the rest of the guys congratulate him and tell him how good he looks

I wonder if this is a local phenomenon or if this is a new trend thatís starting

Do you know how styles swing back-and-forth like a pendulum!

And I also noticed that there are fewer if you were guys posting on this board Iím wondering if the age of a shaved head as it is in Athens now and itís way down And I also noticed that there are fewer if you were guys posting on this board Iím wondering if the age of a shaved head Has passed itís paragee?

@Semi-Sly , I have noticed the opposite here, many more guys going sly.

I was watching some of King Charles III coronation this morning, and was amazed at the number of shaved heads at the ceremony. Looks like guys in England are really enjoying shaved heads.

In the Northeast, the beard trend is still strong. I donít see so much in the way of guys shaving their beards off. I think the trend is to have a well groomed beard.  I think the only guys shaving their heads in my area are guys who are naturally balding. And there are a lot of guys with shaved heads. To see a guy with a full head of hair shaving it off, is not all that common. Just about every guy who can grow a full head of hair has the same side part haircut. To see a guy choosing to be BBC is not all that common. I saw a BBC guy at the supermarket and I thought ďI havenít seen that in a whileĒ. Same with a young guy wearing an impeccable HnT. Hair trend is combable hair.

Beards and bald heads are a plenty on Long Island. BBC is not very common though. Shaved heads my girl friend seems to like ,and she has noticed how many men now shave. She has been the first person that likes to rub my head. Feels good I might add !   :@`

I still see a lot of shaved heads, and only a few guys with obvious thinning that should shave, IMO.  But I do see more young guys now sporting a solo mustache, or a beardstache (mustache with beard stubble).  So I think mustaches are coming back in style, and loosing the "creepy porn stache" reputation.  None of the sly guys I normally see at the gym are growing back their horseshoe fringe.

I see fewer shaved heads on the street than I did I think when I first came back in 2016, most of the guys are older.

I do notice that SMP is still popular in some circles, as well as cheap trips to Turkey for HT.

Beards, are as popular as ever, although I do noticed some of them getting shorter, but still WAY over groomed.

Burst fades (mullety things) are popular now (ug).

I think younger guys are often too hungover to shave :D as for me, I see fewer sly bald guys on the streets, sometimes I take a break from shaving just so I don't become obsessed with having a smooth head 24/7. Also have a date coming up today so when I shave my face and head it will be a pleasant ritual

If this is true, I would be ok with that. When I started shaving my head 10 years ago, I liked that it was an edgy, less common haircut. I would always catch people staring. Over the years, it seems I often wore my hair opposite of the current trend. So if shaved heads become less popular that's good!

I remember in the 60's and 70's, when long hair was the norm, I though it was cool to see an older guy holding on to the crewcut or flattop. I guess I was the one staring then!

So, being we are hooked on wearing a smooth shaved head, I'm sure most of us will continue to embrace our bald brotherhood, and enjoy being different.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

Is refreshing see bald guys with experiment facial beard styles.

I have the military face so I keep clean shaven.  I just don't look right with facial hairs.

I have seen some (formerly) sly guys grow out their fringe, and a few went down to a mustache, but I'd say the majority of them are probably north of 60 years old, when you get to a point it doesn't matter. YMMV
