Whats wrong with that, it looks prety good. Like David I am bald by choice and I love it, but as far as someone said that you'll love rubbing your smooth head, so will a lot of woman, and I'm sure you'll like that. But it is a personal choice, just be sure to know that this site and all the people on it are hear to give you tips and information, and support, if you need any of these just ask.

Hey, Notbaldyet...from a chica's point of view..
I think it really suits you, looking goooood!
Definitely go for it, it makes your eyes more noticeable and
you have really pretty eyes...   ;)

Looks good!  I've never heard of baldygo.com.  I just went there and didn't see the virtual shaved noggin tool.  A lot of great advice, so I'm just gonna wish you luck in whatever you choose to do.  Just try not to do the "Gallagher" thing and grow it long in the back like I did, circa '97:



And um, it was my driver's license picture, not a mugshot.      ;D

 :) Dear NotBald Yet: Awesome projected pictures. The look suits you but you might want to wait a while, as RazorX suggested. There has been considerable discussion on this site about whether the sly look makes one look older or younger. In your case, it seems to me that it makes you look more adult, much less baby-faced than with hair. So, if you're toying with a more mature look, go for it. You've got the eyebrows, goatee, and bone structure to complement the slick dome. You can always let your hair grow back if you don't like it. My case was just the opposite, because my hair was thinning and my beard had gone white; shaving actually knocked ten years off my appearance. It's all a matter of which look makes you more comfortable and confident. This is the era for baldness, as so many guys have shaved their heads, yet the move still connotes boldness. Professor Melon

I have been bald on top for a while.  I still have hair on the sides around ears and at the back of the neck.  How can I have it styled?  Is the usual straight over the ears the best look.  I want to be modern and I do not want to shave my head.

Can any of you give any suggestions?  Thanks.

dharhay...there's not much style left in the horseshoe/monk ring ..the best thing to do with it is keep it as short as possible and maybe grow some side burns with it...thats about as in style as it gets at the moment .......i had the same thing last week...cept no sideburns.

Welcome to the forum, dharhay.

I fully agree with Kajun.....these days, the modern thang to do with such advanced MPB is to shave smooth.

However, if you do not want to do that...the next best thing would be to keep it as short as possible....#3 clipper....maybe #2 or even #1.

I would at least begin contemplating--however remotely--the possibility of shaving smooth.  Play with the idea, drop the idea to friends, family, loved ones.   Not necessarily to get their approval...but to sorta work through the idea in yer own mind.  I got to the point where I was going to shave it no matter what anyone said.....then I did....but it was a process.

Check out my "process" near the bottom of the page here:

http://www.slybaldguys.com/smf/index.php?topic=881.msg13833#msg13833

I personally have discovered a whole new and confident social persona and presence since I shaved 6 weeks ago.....and I have pretty full coverage of hair were I not shaving.   And I didn't necessarily have confidence issues before I shaved.

Stick around here and poke around the posting board...there's a lot of good info, good people and good fun.

Again, WELCOME!!
