I’ve got to the stage where I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m going bald so have got a grade 2 on top and 1 round the sides. The patch on the crown of my head isn’t completely devoid of hair but it’s very very thin so I’ve decided it’s time to start getting used to the idea..

So far it’s been well received, gf likes it a lot, people at clientco have been very complimentary and I’m getting more looks on the tube than I did before – why am I telling you all this?

Went to see mother on the weekend and she flipped out – she wants me to try and ‘fight it’ with restoral crème and implants (which aint gonna happen), she thinks I look like a thug and wouldn’t look out of place holding a board with numbers on it for a mugshot.

So – I’ve mentally prepared myself for baldness and am embracing it, I don’t want to be one of these people who has normal hair with a bald bit they’re ignoring, but my mother wants me to try and prevent it…

Who here is bald and how did you ‘get over it’?

Why don't you just wax - then you can look like Duncan Goodhew rather than Phil Mitchell.

I have a full set of hair - but I love the short haircut look. I always have a grade 2 every 6 weeks or so.

The fact it upsets your mother is good? Or are you too old for that?

Shave it completely. Grow a goatee to compensate. Do it now rather than later. That way you will get a nice tanned head.

I will be going the shaved route for good at the end of this contract.

I was watching the snooker last night and noticed how remarkably low John Parrot's fringe starts. He has a short haircut so you can see the roots of his hair start 2 cm or so above his eyebrows. I've always had quite a high forehead, but there is nothing wrong with short hair, baldy.

Just age gracefully and buy a lolly pop and practise saying "Who luv's ya baby". HTH

Wear a beanie everywhere you go, plus the goatee of course. The Edge off of U2 has been doing that for years.

Some advice: When going bald, get married - quick :(

Aha, I have a business plan. For bald people wanting to look like they just have short hair and not male-pattern baldness, either tattoo or use cresote on the male pattern bits to give a hint of midnight shadow (or no.1,2,etc) affect. You may smell of garden fences, but this is proper man-perfume anyway.

I'm going to take the opposite of whatever wacko jacko was on. Black guys always look cooler bald.

Looks like he's going for a comb-over from back to front. Must have seen that Rab C Nesbitt guy doing the Hamlet advert.

Here it is: :rollin:
