Combovers are so gross..just wish men would get that memo. hard to understand why some still think that looks good.


I am just not a fan of shaved heads.Looks to MMA for my taste. I have no problem with a guy who is losing his hair and doesn't care if the world knows it. I find that kind of sexy.

I prefer the buzzed/shaved look. This is fortunate for me as most men eventually lose their hair!

The only time a man's hair makes any type of significant impression on me is when its long. I probably could not date a man with long hair. Its just very unappealing to me.

All men don't look alike. Some men look horrible without hair. Some men... the ones with really thick necks and tiny ears... look great without hair. Other men are hideous, until they grow long hair and/or facial hair. Tom Hanks is a perfect example of that.

If men want to do comb-overs, fine with me. You see them on the retired jocks who are commentators on sports shows, all the time. They're just good comb-overs. Those men look great. They're hired, because they look great (and because they are sexually appealing to other men). If men need wigs or weaves, that's fine, too. If they want to wear baseball caps...even indoors... even in restaurants... then fine with me.

Different strategies work for different guys, and I think it's really hurtful, the way some people carry on about the way others package themselves.

If I'd had breast cancer and needed a prosthesis, I'd hope nobody would make fun of it. If I needed extensive 'foundations', I'd hope people would not make fun of my girdle, or run around condemning women who wore girdles. I don't see people turning around glaring at women with dyed hair or makeup, when they walk into restaurants, the way I see people certain goody-two-shoes narcissists glaring at men with covered heads.

Men need to be free to do what makes them look best, and not be bound by a set of Twentieth Century rules designed to make men ugly in comparison to women (I suspect this was an attempt at social engineering universal heterosexuality, by making women pretty and men ugly).

BTW, while I have no respect for Donald Trump as a person, I think his hair looks great. It makes him look far better than a man of his advanced age, in his physical condition, would otherwise look.

I remember going to give blood and the male nurse was fairly young and was balding. At some point a few years earlier, he had obviously gotten hair plugs, but his hairline had receded far back from them and he was left with an awful little lonely island of polka-dot roots up at the front of his head. I thought then that he probably looked in the mirror every morning now and wished he had gotten the sports car instead.

Especially given his money, he could do much better than that if he wants to do something about his hair though.....

I love the feel of a shaved head....don't see anything wrong with it at all; in fact I find it very sexy. As many others have said, it's a better choice than having a string of long hair wrapped round and round to cover a bald spot in the center of the head. What look I absolutely HATE are these middle aged hippies that sport a long scraggly ponytail hanging beneath a huge bald spot. Not attractive.

yes I agree. A bald man in front but with a long stringy pony tail is not fooling anybody.
