Hey man, don't be too depressed, almost all of us here have been in your shoes. You are going to lose your hair in a way that is most likely determined by your DNA. I recommend perfecting the shaved head look if you wish to sport a chrome dome like all of us. With the techniques and tools that have been mentioned here, you can get a shaved look that can pretty much hide your male pattern baldness. The degree at which your pattern will show will depend on your hair color and skin tone. Though, I think you'll find after reading many of the posts here is that this look helps guys have more confidence versus growing their hair out and displaying that they are balding. It's this confidence that will help you many times more than having hair will ever help you.
