9 Reasons Bald Boyfriends Are The Best

I like bald guys. It’s not just that I don’t mind if a guy is losing his hair. I think it’s hot. While I recognize that not every 16-year-old girl has a crush on her balding biology teacher, I think women should give bald men another look. In my well-informed opinion, they make the best…

7 Reasons Bald Men Are Better

It may not be something that anyone wishes for, but for a lot of men (about 50 percent), hair loss is a reality.

Bald Dudes Have It Easier These Days, According To The NY Times

Until scientists find an actual “cure” for baldness, dudes must choose from the following options: (a) ignoring it, (b) fighting it with hair plugs, weird creams, toupees, etc., or (c) just shaving their heads completely. A piece in today’s Times endorses the latter approach enthusiastically:
Shaving your balding head is like breaking up with someone before…'s The Cut / April 19, 2012

Girl Talk: Why I Got A Buzz Cut

People think that when a woman cuts off her hair, it means something is wrong. “I think she’s going through a rough time,” they whisper. They try to pinpoint the trauma—”it was that boyfriend who broke up with her” or “I think she might have had an eating disorder.” Women are supposed to be attached…

7 Guys Who Just Don’t Look Right With Hair

How can you tell George Costanza is entering a room? From the little bit of light shining off his bald spot. Sure, it might not be the most desirable characteristic, but it made the otherwise-horrible George slightly endearing.

Jake Gyllenhaal Sans Hair Does Not Smell Quite As Sweet

There are some guys that look totally doofy with hair. But then there is another breed of guy who looks silly without it. Take, for example, Jake Gyllenhaal, who has shaved his head for his role as a cop in the movie “End of Watch.” Maybe it will look a little better when his dome…

North Carolina Crowns A Bald Beauty Queen

I love it when a beauty pageant doesn’t push a tired, old beauty standard! This weekend, the 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina pageant crowned the state’s very first bald beauty queen. Sandra Dubose-Gibson, 37, lost all her hair at age 25 when she developed alopecia, an autoimmune disease that attacks the hair follicles. Sandra, who…

Justin Bieber Sans The Swirl

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel set out to answer a very important question: what would Justin Bieber be without his signature hair? So he had everyone’s favorite tweenage dream wear a bald cap. “I think maybe it’s gonna help me be more aerodynamic on the basketball court,” said Justin. “People will just focus on my beautiful,…

Girl Talk: Boys Like Bald Girls

When I was 21 I was diagnosed with cancer. It really sucked – and not just because of the whole “life-threatening disease” thing.

A Bald Head Makes A Great Canvas

Philip Levine started losing his hair about four years ago, and instead of covering up his baldness with a bad rug, he decided to embrace it by using his head as a canvas.
