but has your friend not seen a picture of Donald Trump? If he hasn't print if off in large format and paste it to his mirror with big words that say "Don't try this at home, could be dangerous to anyone in the near proximity" - lol

My dad had about ten 20 foot long strands of hair wrapped around his head for years. They don't want to be bald.

I've been going bald since I was 16. And I promised myself I'd never have a combover, have been shaving off and on (depending on laziness) since 1997. Interestingly I saw a blind guy a year or so back with a hair transplant. He couldn't see that the way it was done allowed people to see underneath and it looked like an attempt at reforestation (that didn't work)!

I thought everybody knew the answer to this; it's to tell the direction of the wind on a really windy day - just like the wind sock that they have at the airport. My father is bald and I have two bald uncles. Dad has never had the 'wind sock' but both my uncles did at one point in time (one has parted with it while the other keeps it). It looks ridiculous. I think it's a personal issue that they just can't accept that they're bald. I have no hair and I shave my head twice a week - I think it looks much better than if I let it grow.

Combover aka the swoop.

Why do they do it? From a mirror's reflection it probably looks like more hair. Since they can't see themselves from another's pov, I don't think they realize how ridiculous it looks.

That applies to a lot of people.

My uncle does that, but here's the funny thing, he only does it sometimes! I think he figures, he's practically bald, he can get away with no haircut. He can be cheap like that. One day, it's a tacky 300 dollar silk shirt with cans of sardines on it, the next day, he's stealin' catsup packets and saving 9 dollars on haircuts. I think the strand-o'- hair turban is meant more to keep it out of his eye than to fool you that he has hair.

I think it's weird to see guys who do a comb over. It's like they think they are fooling the world about their baldness.

I have a severe receeding hairline, so I just cut it very short. I've only met one or two women who seemed to have a preference for longer hair, most seemed more concerned with "Don't do a comb over!"

Many balding guys think the majority of women don't like guy with receeding hairlines. I think the majority of women don't like guys with low self esteem over the issue, or guys whom have f'ed up haircuts.
