I am sure you have seen people doing this, it's ridculous looking I think. I much prefer shaved head.
Why would this guy post this on the web ??

Oh my, I second the notion of either cutting it short or shaving completely. It may actually take years off rather than age him.

oh yeah, and I have seen the whole PIECE of hair lift up in the wind, and hang over one side, just too ridiculous looking...

My opinion on balding men is very simple: SHAVE IT OFF!

A full head of hair is fine. Losing your hair is fine, a receding hairline is fine. As long as however much hair you have left is kept neat and trimmed, fine. Otherwise, you just look like a homeless person. HOWEVER, when you get to the point where your hair has, for all intents and purposes, simply jumped ship, then grab a HeadBlade and SHAVE IT!

I've already told the story of my lawyer/semi-pro surfer friend who was losing his hair but still had plenty left. He just grabbed a HeadBlade (now one of his surfing sponsors!) and took it all off. He looks awesome, and now I find myself craning my neck for a better look every time I see a shaved head.

If men knew how sexy a huge number of women find a shaved head, they'd ALL shave completely! And I totally agree with the previous poster who said it just makes a man look way older when he has just a few strands of hair left. Like a bad comb-over from the 1950s. Plus, I don't know a woman who doesn't agree that a man who shaves all his hair off has made a bold, gutsy move and one most of us really appreciate.

I agree...shave your head rather than do a comb-over. We have a family friend that has only about 3 strands of hair and he does the comb-over. YUCK!!!!

It looks awful. Shock It is much better to cut it short or completely shave it.

Oh gross!! Shaved heads can be really sexy too - Patrick Stewart is one of my biggest movie heart-throbs.

Comb overs like that are beyond funny, they are almost performance art. As soon as I made guapaboy grey and bald I made him shave it off. He looks tres sexy Very Happy

The most puzzling combover of all time to me is The Donald's. With all that money, how about joining Hair Club for Men, using Rogaine, getting implants, a toupe'... anything. I know, he's just too wealthy to care, but still. Icky combover.

rofl Hilarious site BUT... Cack & Double Cack!!!! Take to that head with a blade and quickly! I am quite sure men with comb-overs clearly see something different when they look in the mirror. They must do because how else can you explain this phenomenon!! Please boys lose the comb & gunk and bring on the polishing cloth! Way more sexy!

That looks ridiculous!! I agree ... just shave it off! There is something very sexy sometimes about a shaved bald head (hello Patrick Stewart ... mmmmMMmmmm)... there's nothing sexy about a comb over! Blech!

This might be an extreme example (because he'd be gorgeous even if he was involved in an unforunate industrial accident), but here's Kelly Slater (the pro surfer) with hair and without hair. He's quite a bit younger in the before picture, but he's every bit as attractive, if not MORE so, in the after pictures. I don't think men realize that they'd look so much better without any hair at all than with just a few measly strands. Bald = gutsy, measly strands = desperately holding on to something that gave up on you long ago!

In this picture, he looks A LOT like my surfer friend who just shaved off all his hair one day. Both are very cute men.

I feel I have to DEFEND the combover.

Once you've lived in small town China your brain begins to change and you start to think its quite normal. Besides there's so much craft goes into that every day. I really miss them and the teachers who unabashedly used to pull a little pink comb and mirror out of their pockets to make adjustments between lessons.

Mind you these were COMB-overs not greasy SCRAPE-overs like this man. I'm not a freak. I don't like the idea of that nestling up to me.

I have to tell you my Dad who is 85 would be totally freaked at this thread. He has 1 (may 2-3 more than that) hair/s and he protects as if they were a mountain of gold.

Salli, my dad is the same way. He's 67 and has an amazing combover that he thinks is just grand. It goes from ear to ear. The worst is when the wind gets it and it lifts like a sail! Oh, the shame. Embarassed
