The sly bald head with the beard is a better look on you, IMO.  Have you tried a full beard vs. the chin strap for comparison?

Hello!

First of all I'm not truly bald, but I only bald by choice.  I only started shaving my head last July after going through a very hot summer in Texas and really wanted a new look.  Not to mention the cost of living was increasing so I had to find ways to cut on expenses. Monthly trips to the barber were an easy to cut down. Plus I was getting tired of styling my hair or wearing baseball caps.

Initially I was only going to try it out for a week, but then I liked it so much that I've been shaving it ever since.

I think many bald guys look cooler than those who are balding.

Congratulations in my humble opinion you look much more mature and sophisticated with the shaved head. I don?t think your former hairstyle was doing anything for you.

Everyone is a little self conscious when you first shave. The first week or two people will comment, after that, nobody really cares. It took me a long time to get used to seeing myself bald when I looked in a mirror. Now, when I grow my hair back for a few weeks, I get comments because they forgot I have hair!

That's good.  Surprise is the most common reaction, especially if you had a full head of hair.  Most people can't grasp why a guy would opt to be bald when it isn't a function of MPB.

Can you post a photo?  I am not sure what you mean by tough skin.

Hi everyone

I am new to this forum and look forward to many chats.

I have been bald for many years and I have to admit i did have a nasty habit of picking my head with left it looking scabby and unsightly.
I have stopped this habit for over a year now and still have tough skinn especialy down the center of my head.

Like most guys I shave the bits of hair remaining and try to do it gently but i still get this tough skin.

I have tried dozens of products and non seem to work.

Any recommendatios please?

Welcome! Congratulations on trying out the sly look.  What reaction did you get from your friends, family and coworkers? It's usually the concern about reactions that keeps guys from trying the bald look.

Not really a lot of reactions. Mostly a bit of surprise from a few people. The closest thing to anything remotely negative was from one of my housemates who teased me a bit the first week. One of my supervisors and my sister were just a bit surprised that I made such a move because they didn't see me as someone who would suddenly shave his head bald.
