I've been thinking of starting to shave my head. Does anybody else do this. If you do, why? To the ladies. Is it attractive? I don't like the way my hair looks when it grows out. Thus I cut it low anyway.

If it matters, I'm an African American man in his 20s.

Thanks for the advice.

Personally I liked shaved heads. On men who are not too pale. And have good shaped heads.

I'd say go for it.

One thing to remember, depending on your face, it can make you look older. Or really young. So play around with facial hair too.

Another vote for do it. Add a goatee or trim beard - that's hot.

Like I said, I've been thinking of taking the plunge. I have a relatively big forehead, so if the barber messes up my hair line(like he did recently), I'll end up looking like I'm going bald. Money is tight and I can't afford to get a hair cut every two to four weeks, so shaving it at that frequency makes some sense. What do you think?

I think it's sexy on the right guy. Try it out! It's only hair and will grow back if you don't like it.

I guess I'll be the voice of dissention, as I don't like shaved heads, and honestly don't understand why they've become so popular in the past few years.

But if it's something you're comfortable with and want to do -- go for it!

If you have face fat, then don't do it. You need a slimmer face, a shaved head can make you look fatter.

Goatee and a shaved head---that's me. Nice to know.
***************
To the OP: I took the plunge two years ago and have never looked back. My wife loves it, the women at work love it, my friends like the look and if you don't like it your hair will grow back. I look better, so I am told, than when I had hair.

Side benefits: No more going to the barber and no more bad haircuts. Saves time and money. I shave every second or third day with a razor and cream. Takes about four minutes. I feel cooler in the summer, but a bit colder in the winter-nothing a hat won't fix. Speaking of which, hats don't mess up my hair anymore.

Do it!
