    Would/did you ever consider/considered wearing a piece? Or so you have an uncle with jet black hair till he was 90.
    I know men that unfortunately starting balding in their mid-late 20s and I feel really bad for them. They would hats EVERYWHERE to the point where I was just thinking instead of doing that like Benji you may as well shave your head. It looks better than wearing a hat everywhere and better than a wig. But, some actors wear hair pieces and are upfront about it and some like Howard just deny it.

    Mid 30's Here and notice some thinning on the back of my head. Sucks and a bit nervous about it but hey I made it this long, hope it hangs on.
    I remember some of those college kids and it was pretty much gone.
    My dad....lucky bastard and his thick mane still to this day.

    That's good. I serve a couple women who are balding and I feel terrible for them.

    I'm in my late 30's and thinning slightly in the front. Nothing noticeable yet. I'm graying more than anything.

    But when it starts to go, it's all coming off. I've shaved my head before so I know I can pull it off. Luckily my head isn't misshapen.

    I could see why actors would need to hang in there as long as possible, but the idea of an fugly radio host needing a hair system is asinine.

    47 in December. No balding/receeding but plenty of gray. My brother was noticeably balding at 16. :jj:

    Maybe because I don't have the issue I never cared. I've shaved my head a few times just for a change. No way I'd get a piece or transplant.

    Don't wear wigs or hair pieces that is faggy as hell. Deal with it like a man

    I think I'll be ok because my dad is in his 50s and hasn't balded yet. If it happens I would just shave it off or something.

    I started balding at 15 and pretty much had a horseshoe by 21 or so. I actually tried Rogaine when it first came out in 1988 (senior in HS) and it seemed to work but it made my head itch like a mother. Wore hats for awhile but then didn't really give a shit by 26 or so.

    By the time I was 30, it was apparent that I was losing my hair. I had really long hair at the time, too. Around 40 I said fuck it and started shaving it. It was a bit shocking at first, as I have very light skin and (had) very dark hair. Now it seems normal and natural. Never ever considered a wig, even though I someone who does pull it off successfully. I have to admit, it fooled me for nearly a year working side by side.
    I'm lucky it's not the 70's when the only openly bald man was Telly Savalas.

    My nephew is only 18, but you can tell he's going to be bald. I don't have the heart to tell him.

    I think bald men are so sexy but not bald women so if it hppnd to me I wd have to wear a wig. My SO was starting to go bald in his 20's so he just shaved it all off. He wears a hat when it's cold but that's about it. Combovers just look silly so might as well shave it.

    I'll let you know when it happens.

    I would never consider a wig. I think that is a big part of what makes Howard so unhappy.
