I had MPB and always liked the smooth look from head to toe. After episodes of head and body shaving, I bought an epilator and TRIA home laser and started removing the hair from my body. My head and beard were steadily going from medium brown to white/gray. My body hair was mostly brown with white/gray coming into my chest. So I worked on my body, while retaining close cropped head and beard.
Eight years ago I decided to take the plunge and go smooth above the neck. I had gone bald a couple of times before, but I have maintained this from that day onward. I love my smooth head. People tend not to notice my lack of eyebrows because I have a strong brow structure and wear glasses. Because my scalp is completely gray/white, I don't really have any shadow. But I really want the smooth feel. I never really had good hair, so I don't miss it. I like the shape of my head and I'm happy being a smoothie.
