How close of a friend are you to him. I would tell a close friend of mine and I would hope that they would return the favor. I would never let my husband or best friend walk around with bad breath!! I would let them know immediately ~ I would want to know.

Sometimes we get use to doing things a certain way and don't realize how silly it is. Or we just don't pay any attention. See how everyone makes fun of Donald Trump's comb-over He still has that darn comb-over don't he?

I don't know why men try to hide the balding, being bald is just as sexy as a full head of hair to some women.

Where's that bald thread Kitten??

A good friend would suggest a good stylist who could fix this - or you can say "No sane WOMAN or MAN has been fooled by a hairdo that can get changed in a wind tunnel.

Just saying

I can't find it.

But here's a few others.

Good things about being bald.

Okay, getting back to the topic at hand ...

If this guy were a good friend or you felt comfortable approaching the subject of his hair, I would definitely, in a nice, tactful way suggest more complimentary hairstyles for him. Tell him he has such a handsome face and he would look so much better if he just took the plunge and shaved it all off. Perhaps he's an older gentleman and he's still stuck in that mode of thinking that only people with hair are attractive. You probably need to hip him to today's look.

If he's not somebody you know very well and/or don't feel comfortable broaching the subject, don't do it. I probably wouldn't, as I would not want to offend him.

If he does look ridiculous then yes I do think you need to tell him in a gentle non critical sort of way. He has a right to know. That's what friends are for. Not just for the easy stuff but the hard things too !

Just make sure you are not hurtful , and i am sure though he might be upset to begin with he will thank you for it in the long term.

I wouldn't mention it to him, but I would mention balding males I found attractive or if I saw a pic of a bald man I thought was good looking I would bring it to his attention.

Kevin Costner had a pretty good haircut that hid his balding for quite a while.

If the comb-over jumped down my pants - I'd surely tell him to put it in the zoo, I'll tell him for you!
Darn pointdexters!
