    First Denial, Then Acceptance, Now I Kind Of Like It

    I like being bald. I've embraced the masculinity of it. At age 24, I noticed my hairline retreating and it disturbed the hell out of me. I tried to rationalize it by assuming that it was only stress-related and temporary... but it just kept happening. My first step toward...

    I Like It

    Some people go to great extents to cover their baldness and in all cases the only person they deceive is themselves and they look so ridiculous.  In my case I love it and I wish for the rest of the hair to fell off so I do not have to shave it.

    Chrome Boy!

    As early as my 20's, it was obvious that I had a receding hairline.  My Dad went bald fairly early and I've inherited that.  I try to keep the hair that I do have very short.  When I visit the barber, I get them to use No. 2 clippers.  It looks neat and is easy to look after...
