Should rephrase this Do you prefer a man with a bald head or hair

I think some bald men look great, but they're in the minority.

It's not as if they have a choice do they?

Do you mean should they shave their heads rather than have a comb over? If so shaved.
If you mean do I prefer bald men to a full head of hair then no. Strange question.

I don’t think it’s a strange question it’s a lighthearted question, Bald head or hair on a man,

I have a quiet longing for Vin Diesel. I’ve no idea why! But I’m turned off by too much hair, I.e. anything more than collar length.

I don't mind at all. It's a shame they are so worried about going bald. When it starts, they really should go for very short or shaved, though!

Definitely shaved, or at least short around the bald bit, and not a comb-over. DH went for very short and it looks fine - except when I accidentally put the clippers on the wrong setting and take too much off in patches grin.

I do think that a thick head of hair on an older man can look suspicious - it is his own or is it a 'rug' ?

I suggested to my elderly friend that he cut off all the whispy bits of hair around his bald patch. He went further than that and went to the barbers and had the lot off. He looked amazing.

He said he couldn't believe that he had started getting a lot of attention from the ladies.

Either. I'm more interested in a beard than head hair. Love a beard. But not a moustache.

My OH didn't realise how thin he was on top until he burnt the top of his head on holiday. He piles the P20 on his head now. He bought some clippers and just keeps it very short. I do the back.

dont mind long as its not..

longer hair (because they have gone bald in the middle on top )and they they make it in to a pony tail to try and cover it up...yuk!
