My hairline has receded pretty bad. My hairline is as deep as jude laws, but my hair is thicker. Also my forehead is pretty big now. Whenever I am talking to someone face to face I notice that they look at me and then they look up at my hair for a bit. I keep my hair medium length and my hairline causes my hair to be positioned a certain way where its not symmetrical.

I have shaved my head before at number 2 and it looks alright, but my hairline has that deep M shape. I remember sitting at a restaurant eating with a friend and these kids making fun of my hairline and kept staring at it. It is less noticeable when I grow out my hair. I am debating on whether to bic it or keep it really short no guard, get buff, and get a tan lol. Sucks that I am losing my hair at such a young age.

See a dermatologist to find out what your options are.

Depends on your facial features, but usually, I think men look better with a totally bald/shaved head look if they've started receding noticeably.

There are some HOT men out there who shave their heads, and are probably bald anyway before they do it.

Minoxidil really works, if you are commtted and use it as directed.you can buy it OTC.

It is tough for a young male to have thinning hair, but as you age it won't be so bad.

Shave it right down to a number 1 and get used to being part of a massive majority, most men lose their hair at some stage.

No big deal at all unless you try to HIDE it with wraparounds and toupees, nothing sadder.

Talk to your doctor about finasteride (Propecia). It's 1 pill a day and stops hair loss for as long as you take it.

I'm utterly baffled by the number of men who insist on keeping that little bit of hair, as if this detracts from the fact that they're going bald.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had a full head of hair 10 or 15 years ago. He shaved it all off. It in no way detracts from his hotness. The wrestler, "Cesaro," clearly has male pattern baldness. Still totally hot. I think he's in his early 30s. I can't think of a single bald guy, young or old, in which I think any less of physically, simply because they are going bald. I do, however, shake my head at the guys who do comb-overs, or who have long ponytails with a receding hairline. Let it go.

I know from a psychological point of view, it sucks to start losing your hair at a young age. But, you're probably thinking about it a lot more than anyone else is. And, kids are cruel and stare at any little thing that's outside their little circle of what's normal. If you have a noticeable "M" shape, growing your hair out probably makes it MORE noticeable, not less.

If you're willing, post a pic of your hair shaved and another with the amount of hair you think makes the baldness less noticeable. You can block out your actual face. Let the people of CD tell you the truth, since we don't know you and don't have to worry about not hurting your feelings.

Get a hair transplant! I intend to do this, I will never let myself go bald.


Thankfully I don't have my dad's hair, all his relatives were bald by my age.

No, just no. Some people don't suit being bald!! I think he should at least TRY and see if there are some solutions.
