    I am also thinking that "It is time"

    So what do I do with my Owl Eyebrows?

    I was in a similar situation a few years ago. The baldness started kicking in hard between about 22 and 25, and then went down hill from there. At around 30, I took the guard off the trimmers before shaving the rest off. It was the absolute best move I ever made. Luckily I pull off the shaved look very well and is had been a real confidence booster. I was living under the disillusionment that my combo over was not noticeable.....but in reality almost all are.

    Check out 1970'sFan avatar. Looks like he puts that Vidal Sassoon tool on his eyebrows.

    Yah, I noticed that too, if that avatar is a self portrait that Sassoon thing does a sweet job.

    It is me after I set about my photo with a fun app! It looks as though I was closely examining the razor and accidentally switched it on.

    Well I have to say that thing does a fine job. Ends up you inspired me, I came home from work and buzzed myself back down to ~1/2" all set for Summer! No more Christopher Lloyd hair here!

    My avatar looks like I was going for the likeness below but that it didn't quite work out.
    I did worry slightly that my ears might look like taxi doors, but nobody's said anything so far.:rflmao:

    When hair gave up on me. It was probably 10 years ago when the lady who cuts my hair went from scissors to the #2 trimmer. Seeing her at noon today.

    Don't forget to wear a hat and use SPF 30 or better boys!

    I know what you mean, the first time I shaved my head down to smooth, I wasn't sure how it would look. There's just no way to know until you just do it.

    Yes, good advice, my hats definitely have been getting more use in recent years!

    I guess I'll go for it this weekend. Start long, and go shorter a little at a time. I do not want to be "Mr. Clean", (I have numerous scars from my youth). And I'll keep this in mind... the difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is 2 weeks.

    Did the clipper thing 8 or 9 years ago. I got tired of the greasy feeling. Now my head always feels clean. Also, since growing a Van Dyke, I've had women checking me out in waiting rooms and bars. Not too shabby.

    Mine's halfway down my back while my hairline ambles toward the top of my head.

    I won't go back. For the 1st 10 days or so, I still was brushing the phantom locks back. The only drawback is going to the barber once a month, until my wife decides to
    cut it for me.
