What's up,

Kinda funny but i've noticed my hair thinning on the top. I sorta ignored it for a while but this morning I looked at it, and i was like: "Holy canollii ! " 

My dad's hair started thinning in his 30's too. He managed to keep it until now (almost 70) but at the rate i'm thinning not sure i will be so fortunate.

I can "muss up my hair" and it looks okay. But in a year or so i'm gonna look like Prince William. See attached photo.

I've always been prepared to shave my head, but i never thought it would be so soon. I think i have an okay face for it but there's also the time/effort involved.

Anyone know how much it costs per week (or per month) if you do it through a barber? How often do you need to go in? I'd imagine at least 2-3 times a week.


Thanks!! Cheers,

Shave your head and see how you like it. I used to be terrified of shaving my head cause I thought I'd look dumb. I had to shave it for surgery, and it looks badass as fuck. Gotta try it to know!

Yeah man, try it. You'll see everything is the same. Well that's not true, it's a lot more comfortable having it shaved.
Don't get it wrong, maybe you look worse, but it doesn't have to affect you in anyway

I have the same problem but I don't make it an issue. Tyler says, caveman didn't need a mirror, you don't need one either. Whether or not it is an issue is up to you.

I heard Prince William is gonna shave his for the wedding...teeth

Mine is thinning at the temple/sides and a little at the crown and the way I see it you can either start looking at all these hairloss websites and you read all this crap about Norwood and vortex scales and all the other stuff that gets you constantly looking in the mirror and counting the number of hairs on your pillow in the morning or you can say Fuck that...try shaving it. If i was at the stage of Prince Wills i'd have taken it down to a Jason Statham buzz cut at least. Fuck royal protocol!!

I can imagine it's quite a liberating experience.
