Haircut

After a long week of contemplation, I have finally come to terms with the fact that my hair line is massively receeding and I have got a 'Steve McDonald' which may well lead to a 'Yordan Letchkov'in the future.

Therefore I am considering in investing in some clippers to whip it off. Has anyone else gone through similar?

What Grade should I use? Has it affected how people treat you?

Have a barber use a #2 clipper, once a month, sorted. Self-clipping sounds easier than it actually is.

Nowhere near as cheap though. I've saved a fortune since I bought the clippers.

Save a fortune, plus it's quicker (no need to go traipsing off to the barber). Self clipping, once you get to grips with it, is a piece of piss. I do the areas round the back that you can't see based on touch/feel, but you can easily use a mirror or get your GF, if you have one, to assist.

Thats what I thought.

Couldn't get the GF to do it. She has 2 wonky eyes and clubs for hands!

Had to shave my head recently because of getting thin on top . I cut it pretty close and cut it every 2weeks. I findings the first month or so the worst as you look a little strange when your head is slightly lighter in colour to your face , but as soon as you get some sun on your head and the colour evens out with your face things are okay.

my head is shaved every few weeks on a number 0, used to have hair all the way down my back when I was going through my ''zeppelin/scruffy'' stage

one day I was walking home and it was boiling hot and I was sweating like a full on MOFO and it was sticking to me face, I was already receding quite a bit and just ignoring the fact I would soon look like bill bailey but that was the final straw

got home chopped the lot off and had a shaved bonce and full beard pretty much ever since

Fortunately I have a full head of hair at 26 and hopefully it stays. That's not me trying to rub it in with yu guys, I totally sympathise but I also think the shaved head and even bald look definitely suits some people a lot, not me though. I have a babyface and I'd look like an actual baby if I ever shaved my head, which I have been tempted to do from time to time but always chicken out.

I also cannot grow a beard for shit, it is fluffy and patchy and just awful so I pray that I never lose my hair because I will look absolutely ridiculous.

I remember being so confident when i was 18/19 that I wouldn't go bald for ages.

No-one on either side of my family is bald. My grandad on my mom's side (supposedly where you get it form ) was 94 when he died and had most of his hair. And I have 30 cousins on that side of the family (can't be bothered to count how many of them are boys, but let's assume half) and 3 uncles.

Not one of them are even close to losing their hair.

And no-one on my Dad's side. My Dad has a hefty bald spot now, but he's nearly 70. Don't think he started to lose his until he was about 45-50

Annoyng as **** to be honest.

Geeze, you wouldn't even notice (from that pic) that you were losing your hair. Your mate in the middle looks in more need of it to be honest.

Maybe it's just a good pic, but I'd say you have a while yet before you have to shave it.

Not that you shouldn't shave it anyway if you want to, but just saying you probably don't need to. Maybe you're just a bit paranoid about it?

It is a pretty flattering pic to be fair. The sides are brushed forward so far. The main issue is the island at the front which is separated from behind.

Yeah sure I am a bit paranoid about it. But the cold hard facts are it is there.
