I'm sure most interesting comments are when you first start shaving. Almost all of the comments I got were positive. A friend's wife didn't like it, but she said at least I had a nice shaped head. Another friend said he wished he had the balls to shave his head.After 7 years, the only comments are when I attempt to grow my hair back. Some look at me and say "wow! You have hair, I thought you were bald".
After being bald now for 8 months, I don't really get many comments any more. However, when I mentioned to a couple of people a few days ago that I had a big job interview coming up they both said "so you'll be growing back your hair then?" to which I replied "no, why would I do that?". They didn't have an answer to that. But it did strike me as odd that, even in 2020, people think having a shaved head isn't quite normal. One old friend did say rather rudely on a group Zoom catch up recently that "I was just weird" for shaving my head (and that wasn't in a positive sense). But I really don't care. I now know it says so much more about the person commenting than me!
Thanks @Laser Man and @Semi-Sly. I didn't get the job in the end. But that was nothing to do with being bald! I totally agree - a bald head looks smart and confident. It's strange what some people think!
