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?

It's a maintenance thing. Much easier to take care of.

I've considered it, but haven't done it yet.

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.

Might need an all-terrain shaver for that Roe, or at least a shaver/peeler combo.

Nature is taking care of that in a gradual fashion.

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.

Why not? Then we could just go to the beauty salon for an eyebrow wax.

1968... took 20 seconds in the chair, had to pay the barber $0.50, then back on the yellow footprints. MCRD, San Diego.

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)

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

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 . . . .

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.

Did once. Had to. Said she knew how to cut hair. Looked like a chess board.

ivalueamerica 4 years, 1 month ago

BigPrune 4 years, 1 month ago

I don't have to shave my head, it doesn't have any hair anyway. My chest, back and arms on the other hand....nah

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.

"Once a year my spousal unit shaves her Pomeranian. "

"My wife is shaving her Morkie Poo this weekend."

Pardon me, but your euphemisms are showing.
