    How to handle balding spot ???

    My wife has been cutting my hair for the last 27 years now ... what can I say, we're cheap Today she commented that I'm starting to thin on the top a bit Not good! So being the pre-planner that I am, I'm already starting to think of the best way to hide, or display the bald spot when it gets more noticeable. Here's what I'm thinking:

    1) comb-over with wispy type hair

    2) comb-over with intentionally greasy hair. Benefit - can press the hair in place before leaving the house and it should stay there ... unless there's a strong wind.

    3) spray paint hair to match existing (haven't worked out the kinks yet with the greying hair coming in. This idea still needs some work, but it looks viable.)

    4) toupee. These can look real ... right?

    5) wear hats everywhere I go. May not work so well in my office environment.

    6) convert to Judaism. Gives me an excuse to wear a yamaka.


    Other ideas are welcome.

    Embrace it and shave it all off. Bald men are sexy.

    1) no.

    2) no.

    3) hilarious. Go for it. Post pics.

    4) for the right amount of money. A lot of money.

    5) Men do not wear hats indoors. Ever. Only men who's mothers were lax or uncaring or worse wear hats indoors. If you hate your mother, please, wear your baseball hat at indoor table.

    6) OK if you are sincere. Balding cover-up is not sincere.

    7) shave the mess off entirely.

    You're goofy looking already so bald is "enhancement" and remember: A confident goofy looking guy is cool.

    EDIT: Unless, like moi, you have a potbelly. Then you're better off with growing a ponytail.

    Surprisingly touques are not usually worn by middle-aged men indoors. That's more a young folk's look.

    Just a short distance from the border and I'm still learning the customs of the natives.

    wear a cowboy hat
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Is your staff male, female or co-ed?

    What??? Can't a guy be merry and good with a staff? Besides, I have to maintain the stereotype for Spry.

    I find a clipper with about a 1/16th inch guard does a fine job of leaving my head with a nice fuzz on it.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    Cutting the rest of your hair short will make it less noticeable.

    I am 52, and I started losing my hair (from the front back) in my early 20's. By the time I was 30, I was left with a horseshoe fringe around the sides. At age 40 I started shaving my head every day. The only downside is having a large collection of hats, to prevent sunburn or winter chill.

    I used an Oster Classic 76 clipper to 0.2mm for a couple years before I started using an actual razor. It worked really well.

    I just used a #2 clip (1/4 inch) myself.

    The staff is neither male or female, it's an inanimate object ... but I have named it "Little Alfster".
