Phil Curly’s head-shaving experience.
Sixteen years ago (1990)I had a quite traumatic loss
in my life, and as a result my curly dark hair began
to thin quite drastically. It was already thinning
a bit on the crown and hairline, but accelerated fast
I head read about men who decided on a Male
Pattern Baldness (MPB) look by shaving the top
of their head, so I decided to try it, and liked the
result. At the same time I grew a beard and mustache
to compensate for the loss of hair ‘on top’.
|I changed from this:
|and liked it. I still maintained the back &
sides to a fairly close trim.
One day about ten years ago, when in a barber’s
chair having a trim I impulsively asked him to ‘Take
it all off’, so he clipper-shaved me. It was
a real turn-on to see myself virtually bald with only
very close stubble left. When I got home I got out
my shaving lather and razor and shaved slick smooth
down to the scalp.
Initially I took a bit of teasing from friends, family
and colleagues, but that soon passed when people realised
that I was in earnest about being a 100% bald man.
I now would look odd with hair, and love my bald persona
which I maintain every couple of days with a shave-down.
Bald is beautiful in my opinion and I’ll be
this way for the remainder of my life
I’d like to encourage other guys who want the
support to take the step to being bald. I might add
that a bit of facial hair is a great accessory to a
‘chrome-dome’. Feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org
if you want advice and encouragement about becoming
a bald guy.
