20 years ago, or even 10, shaved heads were so much less common, so it stood out. Even when I first shaved it off 7 years ago, I would notice people giving me a glance. Personally, I liked it more when wearing a shaved head was less common and a little edgy. Now it's just another hairstyle. It is kind of fun when you're out somewhere and 2 or 3 baldies stand around together, usually discussing shaving routines.
