I – and plenty of other women I know – find bald or balding guys extremely attractive. Assuming, of course, that said men embrace their baldness. Combovers? Rugs? Definitely not sexy. But a receding hairline combined with a good smile? Killer. -S- August 6, 2004 I figured out, after closer examination of my own response, why I find bald men “attractive” on the scale of “ugly-to-fine” — that is, why I like a man with a bald head instead of running down another aisle in the market if and when I ever encounter one. It’s because it’s frank. It’s not so much an “honest” frankness (they’ve shaved whatever hair that they still have, after all, so there IS the obvious editing in the bald head), that, well, go ahead and shave what’s left off and stop trying to masquerede/pretend or otherwise deny that there’s a loss of hair. The dreaded comb-over is what has me running. Or, men with toupees. I just don’t get the pretense. Instead, a bald head is unencumbered, lacks cosmetics and on a man, that’s good to me. I’ve never thought a bald head indicated a pscyho, however, just that it indicates a man who rejects the dreaded comb-over and/or wig. So, I say, here and now, go ahead and shave your head. ~;-D David Anderson August 6, 2004 Come to Cost Rica Bro. I will hook you up. Denise August 7, 2004 My father lost his hair (except for the fringe around the sides) in his early twenties. He used to say he used a little too much Bryl-Cream, and the girls just pulled it out. But what really drove my mom nuts was when he bought a Beatle wig and threatened to wear it to church. McGehee August 7, 2004 I briefly considered shaving my head. It was at that point that racism reared it David Anderson August 7, 2004 Hey McGehee, hate to tell you this dude, but Vin is Brutha as we say, Italion and Black from what I understand. LOL! King of Fools August 7, 2004 This has given me much hope. Harvey August 7, 2004 Well, if you don’t want to go the full skinhead route, you can always keep the fringe and just shave the top. McGehee August 7, 2004 David, when an entire paragraph in one of my comments is in italics, that means I’m quoting someone else. Time to wave off the next pina colada and order iced tea, dude. Sharp as a Marble August 8, 2004 Man. I feel bad now. I feel really bad because I’m about to post this. Early 30’s and not a single grey hair on my head. Thick, lucious hair that every barber or stylists just rave over. The Hispanic in me means a chest void of even the lightest of fuzz. My father, in his late 50’s, has maybe 3 or 4 grey hairs on his head (his beard, otoh, is salt and pepper with an emphisis on the salt). All his hair is there just a little thinner. Granted you get ‘baldness’ from your mother’s genes (which noone on my mom’s side was bald), you can get your hair from your father nonetheless. I would cry rivers if I went bald. I wouldn’t take it honorably and would shower with rogaine and pop Propecia like tic-tacs.
