    Ive been shaving my head since around 10-11 years old...........sure do regret not having it around a little longer now that I want it there:crackup: Oh and clippers all the way....no guard and loosen the blade screws and push the big blade further towards the small cutter blade and re-tighten the screws.You get a much tighter shave that way.

    Used to spend $20 (+$5 tip) every 2 weeks at my local barber until about 2013 when I started using clippers to buzz it to varying lengths depending on my mood. So thus far I've saved about $3600 with the investment of a $40 set of clippers :D

    Clippers, no depth gauge. Trimmers for the few surviving stragglers left on top.

    Razor. Every day to every other day. I just do it in the shower, no mirror anymore. Been doing it that way since highschool.

    Some guys look okay shaved bald but there are a bunch that just look either odd, ugly or psychotic.
    I'm half bald but I just get a short haircut. I would look ridiculous with a shaved head, especially with all the scars, lumps and dents up there.

    I haven't taken the plunge yet, but the enemy has set up a perimeter on the crown of my head, and is slowly advancing its position.

    I joke about losing hair, because it's funny, and it's easier than getting pissed off about it - plus that hair replacement treatment is expensive as hell. Like $12,000 for a patch the size of a coffee mug - and still have SOME hair left there. I'm vain. I am not $12,000 vain.

    If you're tall, fewer people than you think probably notice the top of your head.

    staying in shape helps me feel better about it too. We were on a group ski trip and someone walked in on a friend of mine and his wife during a, uh, moment of intimacy... He was wearing a t-shirt. So any time he brings up my hair loss, I just bring up his t-shirt sex. "buddy - you need a little sod on the fairway." "I know jack - not all of us can cover up the signs that we're aging by wearing a t-shirt during sex."

    I would do lowest buzzer setting tomorrow, but the wife doesn't want me to. She has to look at me more than I look at myself, so I've made it her call. /$.02

    I had dreds in the 90s then I shaved my head. Haven't stopped since. Prolly wouldn't be much there if I grew it out now. I don't get manicures or massages either but to each his own.
