    My Wife Loves It!

    I first shaved it all off about four years ago. It seemed that my hair was slowly growing thinner on top all the time and I had been cutting it shorter all the time. So one day when I was out of town for work, I decided to cut it all down and take a razor to it. I thought it...

    Always Wanted To - Finally Got The Nerve

    I was always fascinated with shaved heads, even as a kid when they were very rare outside of Kojak, Yul Brynner and fraternity pranks. I tried several short buzz cuts over the years, then one day, took out my beard trimmer and buzzed it to the skin, lathered up and shaved smooth...

    Bald By Choice

    I had a full head of hair, but decided to shave it off. Frequent haircuts, shampooing, drying and combing my hair became a real chore. Also dandruf had been a problem for me since my teenage years. After trying every dandruf treatment available, I gave up. Over a 3 year period...

    Summer Time...

    and the living is easy. Fish are jumping and the weather is fine, so I shave my head, but wear a hat every where I go, so I don't get burned. It grows back by Winter so I can have some heat retention. Not all of it grows back as I do have some male [pattern baldness. I would try...

    I've Shave˅d My Head

    Yep, I did it once and I liked it enough to keep it that way for 6 weeks! I always hated my hair. Places are straight, places are curly, some are downright frizzy. No matter what I did, within 2 hours it would return to where I started. And it grows too fast to do anything...

    I only made one mistake when I first started shaving my head. That was to start shaving it days before the coldest winter in a decade. I quickly learned to love hats. Aside from that, I LOVE the feeling my scalp has. Sleeping that first night was one of the most restful sleeps...

    I hate receding hairlines.

    When I was 16 my hair started to recede (thanks for the genes, Mom). by the time I was 30 it was getting really bad and my hair was starting to thin out on top. One day I was looking in the mirror and thought "f" it. I got out the clippers and shaved my head as close as I...
