Kind of a silly question,,Just watched a commercial for some silly hat with lights in it supposed to grow hair,,Wondering how many members are bald and don't care ,,Like me lost my hair and beard around 1985 due to chemo and just decided I liked it and shave my head every couple days..My barber used to say "God is great and God is fair he gave some men brains the rest he gave hair"

I've got my hair (knock on wood) but ever since Bruce Willis in the 80's, bald/balding is cool.

Took the clippers to mine in the mid-90's to cure a 'Bobby Charlton' (You guys over the pond may have to look him up) Hint: Massive comb-over.

Never regretted it and I wouldn't want it any other way now. Must have saved a fortune on haircuts and shampoo biggrin

I'm very thin on top so I keep it shaved. My goatee got things whole on chemo so I shaved it then but it's back now.

full thick head of hair here, starting to get a lot grey now at 63, but what do I care about it? It is what it is now my late uncle was 88 and he was just staring to go grey at the temples. my younger brother was getting teased at 30 about starting to go grey and when we were clearing out his stuff after he passed away in 2006 we found bottles of Grecian 2000.

my mate John was going bald at school he just said it was a solar panel for a sex machine biggrin

As well, got tired of forking out money for a half hair cut. This past winter was cold so let it grow back. Haven't shaved the head since Christmas.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

A place I worked at had a drinking fountain. This engineer would bend down to get a drink and would have the ends of his combover washed.

Growing up, I noticed that the vast majority of male relatives on both sides of the family were bald by the start of their thirties, so I figured it was for me as well.

I made it to around 35 before I just took a clipper set without a guard and just cut it all (my "high and tight" just went higher is all).

Since I knew it was coming, there wasn't any shock or attempt to slow or stop it.

I did learn that first summer, though, that hats outdoors are mandatory. The sunburn isn't that painful, but when the healing skin peels, it makes one look like they have the mange. smile

Also, growing up in the '70's and '80's my Mom and I were in a constant conversation about hair length. I wanted short hair, 50's style, but Mom wanted me to fit in more with my peers and so I wore it only as long to not stand out. One I left home, it was high and tight haircuts until I could just cut it all to stubble.

I still have a full head of hair at 46 but my hair is most definitely thinner than it used to be.

A picture is worth a thousand words.........

Been like this since my early thirties. Only time I've been conscious of it was when regarded as a Skinhead.

Showed my children a photo of me with long hair taken about 1970, and they ran away shouting 'Daddy looked like Jesus!'
