If you like it, rock it.
I don't shave it, but I buzz with a #1 or #2.

To answer your questions: 1...It's never cold where I live & that's why I buzz. South Florida is a sauna this time of year. 2. Don't need to moisturize here due to the insanely high humidity. 3. A hat of some sort is necessary if you know you're going to be out in the sun for a long time.

Yes, which is always true in the sun, regardless of the amount of hair you have. I know two people who have had to have their ears amputated because of sun-induced skin cancer.

I never understand why men do that.

It's nicer and easier. No cutting. No combing. I started shaving my head at 20. Hair is just hot and a PITA.

I think the funniest look is the older men who wear ponytails or have their hair long,scraggly, and slightly dirty looking thinking it makes them look young or hip. I would rather see shaved heads any day than that.

That can also be true. Sometimes infact I can't tell if some of them are men or women from behind. I like a nice manly crew cut myself. I keep my hair short because it's easier maintenance but it grows very fast. Once I let it get to shoulder length but it was awkward to maintain and I don't have time for that type of thing. It looked quite good on me like that though. One wouldn't mistake me for a woman because I'm a) 6'4" and b) have an obviously male body shape / quite a square jawline.

However, I have also had very short before, i.e. shaved and everyone who knew me said I looked like a thug. Basically it depends on your face I think, as to whether shorter or longer suits you.

When I worked as a hairdresser, the ROTC lads would ask for a 'high & tight' with a #1 or #2 guard around the perimeter. I currently live near Camp Pendleton, so it's easy to spot the military lads here... they look nice with very short hair.

Cheers for that. I've seen bald men on the subway in NYC/Boston in winter sans hat (burrrr!) & thought they must have to use a lot of moisturizer to keep from drying out. After a shower, I weigh 10-lbs more... 5-lbs hair conditioner, 5-lbs moisturizer.

That can be true, too. It can give one an intimidating look, especially if one is a) 6'4" and b) have an obviously male body shape / quite a square jawline.

It's like any other style, I suppose. Some women want long hair even though they don't have full or healthy hair... but, they prefer it that way. Fortunately, I found the perfect look for me...

Nope, though there is aloe in the shaving cream.

Yeah I visit friends and family up north even *gasp* in the winter & a ski hat is a necessity. I was up in St. Louis back in January when it was -5* outside every morning, I couldn't imagine going without a hat in that.

I do believe I see chocolate donuts in there. It's making me hungry.
