I have several times and would do it again, especially in an instance like concernedeudoravoter above. I also grew up wearing a buzz cut that was almost shaven.

While I'm busy not watching the KU game, I'm deciding between the shaved look and the Justin Bieber swirlie-doo. I've got to be honest, I do have Bieber Fever. Why? -He comes across as genuinely nice kid. -He's got a fair amount of sway for a Canadian. -He's kind of a ladies-man-kid. -He wasn't in the Mickey Mouse Club. -He wasn't on American Idol. The last 2 points automatically disqualify Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken, and Taylor Hicks from having any genuine talent whatsoever.

As far as I know, if want to date an ebony princess, you'd better shave your head, or at least wear it short. The black women I know do not like hippie hair. Personally, I'd love to have an afro. I'd even settle for a Bob Dylan/Seth Rogan Jew-fro. No such luck.

As a cancer survivor - I would absolutely shave my head in support of someone battling this horrible disease. During my struggle, I had 7 friends/coworkers that shaved their heads for 6 months in support of me. The love and support that someone, struggling to hang on, gets from this small gesture of support, is indescribable.

Yup. Back in my high school days it was manly to be hairy. I had maybe six chin whiskers at the time. Now, some 40 plus years later it is the "smooth as a baby's backside" look that is in. Only now I have hair growing from everywhere. Tips of my ears, side of my nose, . . palms . . . .

Celebrating 10 years of the shaved head. I agree you must have the head for it, and mine is goooood!

Why does my super power have to be growing facial hair?! Why could it not have been flying or turning invisible...

Thanks, Bob, for getting me all wound up. "Celebrity? Rehab" makes me gag. They molly-coddle those people for 2 weeks, then toss 'em out and bring in a new batch. The only person on that show that knows anything is that Bob guy with the wierd red hair and the hat. Drew Pinsky is a psychologist, and probably a good one. But he isn't an alcoholic/addict, so he has no credibilty in that field. I've learned that from experience. My long-standing motto is "You can read and study every book ever written about addiction and recovery. But unless you've been there, you'll never know what it's like to be inside my head."

Thanks, CW. I do shave my chest, arms, and occasionally my lower back. I'm not one of those goiters who thinks that hairy is masculine. I also exfoliate when I wash my face, and I moisturize. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool metrosexual.

The G.I Joe hair must have been glued on with Elmer's. I never had one that didn't look like it had the mange after getting the hair wet. Might as well go with that twister Ken. Plus, Ken wore that 70's porn star scarf. In addition to the scars and knots, I have a dinosaur ridge on top of my head, kind of like Rodney Hull. I learned my lesson from staring at his head the 2 times he showed up for class all semester. I can't do the shaved head thing.

I got barbershop school crewcuts for a couple years as a youngin'. Never planning to take the razor to the dome but you never know how life will unfold. The barbers I know need the work.

Who loves you baby? At this point there is only one thing I shave and you are welcome to guess (now whit, before you delete this think of ALL the things that can be shaved not just the naughty bits)

BABBOY 3 years, 1 month ago

Maybe. I buzz it anyway. But, with me, it would probably scare women and children so I better leave a little on top.....

I sometimes wish I had G.I. Joe hair. Not that Ken doll crap. I'm talking Action Figure hair. But not the Kung Fu Grip™ guys, they had that nasty flocked hair that felt like my chin does on the 4th day between my weekly Thursday facial hair shaving event. Also that hair would rub off when you put a helmet on them and they took a motar round.
When you put the scuba gear on Sea Adventurer, his hair would rub off where his lambdoid suture is, but damn with that beard he made a striking figure. I tell you if I was less than 89% straight, I would have really gone for him, kinda sorta like how Hadji went for Dr. Benton Quest. But it's the pre-flocked hair I want, doesn't grow, doesn't grey, doesn't poof.
When my hair gets too long it weighs my head down and hurts my neck, so I have to have a cut every week and a half or so. It's an easy cut, short and sweet, nice and neat, leave the top long enough to cover the scars.

I shaved my head in high school once. Consequently got a sunburn on my scalp. I wouldn't recommend it.

I went thru a bad punk phase when I was 21 where I shaved the back underside of my hair. It was long enough to cover it unless I had it up. But really, bad idea. I grew out of the phase before my hair grew out though. Still makes me cringe thinking about it.

My momma would kick my ass if I did that, so....NO.

Hollis, them cows licked me all over my head when I was still babyfied but I has that hippie when I was youngers,....like when I was in college. you know, pony tailed and all that. Momma said I had purty hair like a girl and cried when I cut off.

Yes I have, a couple of times. In support of loved ones going through chemo. It gets a little thinner each time (like some of it went on strike), but I'd gladly do it again. I love scarves.

Not at this point. I haven't lost any hair yet, so I let it fly, but not too much. The Mayor has been cutting my hair for over 25 yrs. so I only spend about 10 minutes in the chair. I have him buzz the sides and back and and short on top. Sort of a fade. I can't have hippie hair. I have so many cowlicks it looks ridiculous if it grows more than a few weeks. Besides, if you've ever seen a man with really long hair nekked, you wouldn't want hippie hair.

Luckily I still have a full head of hair. I would shave it before I would do a comb over, or in support of a loved one. Probably look like a sack of potatoes.

Some guys look good with a shaved head. But I would estimate that one of ten men who have shaved heads look awful, and need to grow their hair back ASAP. Is it a macho thing?
