I donít necessarily agree that shaved heads are the ďinĒ haircut right now. They were at one time and hopefully will be again one day. The late 90s and early 2000s are when head shaving began to become more common. It started with balding men, and then it became trendy and guys with full heads of hair started shaving their heads. Around the time that this forum started, high school kids and college students were shaving their heads. Bald was cool.
Eventually, the trend ran its course. Those who could regrow their hair, for the most part did and those who could not remained bald. Bald wasn't necessarily cool anymore but the stigma was gone and shaving more or less became the default option for those who were losing their hair. Thatís kind of where things are right now. Everything comes back into fashion eventually, though, so Iím looking forward to the next surge in popularity for head shaving.
