Is it time to shave my head? - balding thread

I started losing hair at age 20 and always new one day I would be bald. I didn't try to fight it and always figure I would shave my head when I lost too much hair. I even shaved my head a few times when I was young just to see how it would look. Now 18 years later I am not sure I can hold out much longer and may be time to shave it all off. Problem is I like to have a conservative look and find a shaved head on me make me look kind of mean. At the same time I don't want to have a comb over.

So is it time to shave things off?

This is what my head looks like when my hair is combed:



Here is shot that you can see how bald I am:

tough to see the whole picture but actually I think it looks fine. Clearly your hair is a bit thin but it doesn't look like you're bald and doing a cheesy combover or something. My 2 cents is keep it as is for a little longer.

Agreed. Looks perfectly respectable as is. Nothing wrong at all with shaving it eventually, either.

Nice thing about getting older is that getting bald doesn't necessarily look bad. It's all in how you carry it.

I honestly don't think that you are too bald, you can probably hold out a while

Thanks guys, my rate of loss has not been too fast so I will atleast get to 40 with it as it is then, or maybe a bit further.

I have always like the shave look, but like I saw I look rather mean with a shaved head and my aglular face

I'm thinning a kittle differently and shave it every Spring (will do it this week). Have it like it is now for the winter months.
