nope but I have a handsome inviting face so it doesn't intimidate people..  :@`

But If I let my facial hair grow out I look more like a bad ass'ish Russian hit man...

I haven't really noticed any change in people, after all I am still me :)
First started shaving my head on the 9th October 2014

No, but I have gotten comments such as "whoa, what happened to your hair?" when I went sly.  I was skyping a friend one time, her dad (known me since I was a young kid, i'm 15 now) walked into the room and goes "who's that bald guy?".  I'm 95 percent sure he was kidding.   ;D
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift.  That is why it is called the present.

I've never really been aware of any negative reactions from people and passers-by; my life bringing me into contact with people from 8 to 80. What I have noticed since being bald-by-choice is that people seem to remember me much more easily than before - whether that is to with walking around with a shaved head I can't say, but it seems most likely.
Bald-by-choice since 2009.....

Maybe it used to be like that but there's so many of us bald guys that they don't even think about it anymore.

I'm guessing old people fear 'gang member.' Sometimes I'll get a double look.

I started this thread when I had been shaving my head for less than a year.  It's now 7 1/2 years later and either people are no longer intimidated or I just stopped noticing.  One thing that has happened during that time is that shaved heads have become very common in the area where I live.

I agree, shaved heads are so common now, I never get a comment or second look anymore. I kind of miss that attention I would get being "the guy with shaved bald head".
Bald by choice, and loving it!

I have been SLY for 15 years and early on there were times that I would get odd glances or people would ask me if it was because of a medical issue. In today’s world, it has become so common including men that go SLY that have a full head of hair.
I guess we are just lucky.
Wouldn’t want to have it any other way.
Can’t wait for my shave today.

I know with my beard and shaved head, I get a lot more 'random' checks for security

I don't believe people are more cautious or wary of me because I have a shaved head. Certainly older people have made rude comments. I think people of my generation are more understanding as to why one would choose to shave their head. I feel like older people feel like shaving your head is something you're forced to do based on hair-loss where as younger look at it as a choice and that being sly is style within itself.

I'm almost 30 (I became sly when I was 28). When I had hair, I was being asked for ID when I gambled or bought alcohol 50-75% of the time. The moment I became sly, I haven't been asked for ID since.

Yeah, I agree that he was probably just kidding you - but he must think that you look good with it because he obviously noticed it enough to comment and if he didn't think it looked good he would have said something negative.
