Greetings. Is there room on this forum for a guy who’s *not* after drug remedies, surgery, toupees, etc.?

I’m trying to find out if there are any decent hairstyles for my type. Background: I’m completely bald on top but have full thickness on sides and back. So far, I’ve only run into a few options:

(1) If I kept it short and close, I’d look like Bill Dautrieve on *King of the Hill.* I find this boring and a bit pathetic.

(2) I’m also not fond of the Jason Statham look.

(3) Shaving completely bald looks freakish on me, plus daily maintenance shaving would make my scalp break out in angry red pits and craters.

(4) The “ex-hippie-with-a-ponytail” look is ugly as sin and out of the question.

(5) Finally, I asked this question on another male style/image board and was *sneeringly* told both to go for “mad scientist” and “spend the money for the transplants.”

In short, I’m getting tired of being told “give up and get used to it.” I don’t want to look like a “respectable middle-aged stodge.” I don’t feel 48; must I wear a 48-year-old’s hairstyle?

So I’m trying to find out if anything *distinctive* and *interesting* can be done with what I have left. Any advice is most appreciated, especially photo galleries — I don’t suppose I need mention that not one of the men’s style books I’ve seen in any salon’s waiting area has anything but full-haired styles.

Thanks –

How about a growing a little beard, and by that I mean a full-fledged beard and not just a goatee.

I already have a full beard, which I get trimmed to one-guard once a month. My facial skin is just as eruption-prone as my scalp. Thanks, though.

When you don’t have any hair on top I am pretty sure that is considered bald and not partially bald.

There is not much you can do man, I mean would you want to style the hair on the sides of your head? Spike it up maybe? Throw in some gel and highlights? I would hope you would not want to do that.

You can keep it longer and puffy and really accent your bald areas or you can shave it really close.. what do I recommend? cutting it really close…or shaving it clean.

if you have money and and large area bald area to cover, then check out Hasson and Wong in Canada, for a transplant.

Thanks, but:

Nix on the gel (haven’t found a styling product yet that didn’t feel like hardened industrial plastic when dry) and also the spikes and highlights — but if my side hair could bear an interesting style, I’d go for it. I’m a bit of an artsy eccentric type and could get away with some extra length and puffiness — job’s not fussy about it and neither is the Missus.

It’s just that every time I try keeping it close and tight, I look in the mirror and see my dad. Just because I’m 48 doesn’t mean I *feel* middle-aged, so I hate the idea of *looking* that way.

As for Hasson & Wong: About how much in US dollars? (Wife is standing by to call 9-1-1 in case I have a heart attack upon hearing the figure …)

you would have to do an online consultation with them I believe… google hasson and wong and get into contact with them to get a estimated price.

I went to Hasson and Wong three years ago. I had something like 1500 grafts done, the price was %5,000 US. It’s made a BIG difference in my appearance, coupled with Proscar. It was an ordeal, though, but definately worth it.
