Boldly Bald

I realized something today, while I was running my razor across my Startifacts razor head in the shower,  that never fully occurred to me before, although I think I’ve always been aware of it on some level: I feel better about myself with a shaved head than I do with hair. I am more confidant, more forward, more bold and more secure when I’m sporting a shaved dome than I am if I let the hair grow in. I don’t really know why. Perhaps it’s because, about the time I started shaving my head, I stopped being a total doormat; perhaps when I first shed my hair, I also shed a lot of baggage and destructive relationships in my life; perhaps it’s the first time in my life I chose a look because I liked it and not because it made me more attractive to other people (most people I know have told me they prefer me with hair on my head.) Whatever it is, whatever the reason, I just like myself better with a shaved head, and as the hair starts to return so does the “old me.”  And I don’t like that. So I’m going to make a concerted effort to keep my head shaved clean more consistently. It might just be Dumbo’s feather, but it works and that’s all that matters.

    you are a handsome devil, regardless.
    Shaving one’s head seems an awful lot of work though. No cuts or nicks I hope?

    If it works for you, do it and don’t worry about what others say. It’s a great look and you look great with it.

    I love when my partner shaves his head. I think he shaves every two or three days, but not only does he look better – its more fun to touch his head. I won’t say any more at the risk of changing my PG posting to a more adult rating.

      I can’t imagine what you’re talking about – but it’ll suffice to use this convenient space (thanks!) to say that I won’t be the only one who has found another guy’s top hair coming away complete in his hand. Good job it wasn’t his teeth! Big 😉

    While respecting your right to do what you like with your own body, any chance of you posting a pic of your handsome self sporting a toupee? Only asking.
