Exactly!! Having shaved my head since posting this thread, I'm already liking it and need to go back over it sometime soon, maybe tomorrow. A great decision, would definitely recommend!

Hey man it's good to hear that you like it. How do you keep it shaved? Do you use an electric shaver or something? And how often does it need to be done?

Helloo Ray, I do use an electric clipper but placed on the lowest grade so that it isn't shaved all the way down to my scalp, lol. Kinda like a buzz cut, not a skinhead. Or, if you want, you could take the grade off and shave it down to your skull and see if someone can go over it to deal with the areas you may have missed, it looks alright either way, in my opinion.

If it's left untamed, it'll grow out like a tooth brush. If you wait it out, it'll grow back to normal and you can get a crew cut or something but I try to shave mine every two weeks, no longer than three. If you're thinking about it, I definitely recommend!

I do the same but try to buzz it once a week. I used to have great hair but the receding gene had me reach a point I wasn't pleased with. In 2002 or so I had an ex-girlfriend cut it off...she got a 6 inch ponytail out of it.

I just can't abide with the rugstrip from ear to ear...my ego and some denial going on I suppose. It's all good...I'm told the shorn pate is a fine look. I do miss the mop but I have a photo or two in my files to get misty eyed over...*grin*

Get 'er done Ray! It's a little cool in winter that's all...summer is fine!

i've been told that i do have the perfect shaped skull for the buzz cut (or bald cut). i keep my head shaved for several reasons (not listed here).

note: everyone's skull shape and hair texture are different~!! how fast does YOUR hair grow? how soft is it as it grows out ? what does a bare scalp do to the shape of your face ? what's your motivation? (all good questions)

one thing i'll say for it,, it's CHEAP~!
