Saw this on my youtube feed today and thought it was quite nice:



I do like that we're getting more personal testimonials to how hair loss impacts many of us.

He also looks pretty good with or without hair.

I don't agree, I think that he looks like an intermediate background goon. If he was cast in a movie, he would be cast as the character without a name who gets killed and then none of the actual characters with names give a shit.

You pulled off the bald look a lot better, I'm not sure what the difference is though. I think that it might be that you have both build/muscle and a sort of kindness/artistic look to you. He just looks like a goon. I might be projecting my own knowledge, as he has the beard and the muscles and the clean cut shirt, it's as if he's maximally coping.

Scratch all that if he's actually 6'3, in which case he looks fantastic.

Never mind the 6'3 business. I'm only 5'11 myself.

I guess its just perspective because I think he looks handsome now. I looked at his profile and if you look 6 months back he looked a joke of a man as a toppik prisoner.

You may all disagree, but if he weren't married, if he was single then I am sure he wouldn't have an issue dating fellow thirty-something year old women.

This guy is the complete opposite as he is at war with hair loss (which I understand)



But when you see how harvested his donor area is already is and when you know he will need a crown transplant within 5 years its just pretty tough to watch.

I empathize with that struggle though but my thoughts are he should have embraced the balding as much as he could instead of getting a bunch of surgeries for a so, so head of hair.

(Im referring to other video not the second one)
he's not a really stand out on looks for me with or without hair.

BUT nothing is wrong with him...he looked awful with his hair loss because it was mostly powder and it looked odd...so he did right thing to shave.

I think he looks okay bald and he looked okay full head...the only difference I see is his age but he looked aged with the hair powder vs his old full head pics regardless so hard to really judge.

He's looks matched to his wife in my opinion. And it looks from photos he met her while he had hair.
I don't think hes trying to be a hottie, just normal and attractive to his wife.


The guy in the other video, is kind of beta looking to me. Sorry I know I'm probably gonna hear shit from incels for that one, but fuck it.

I've got second haircut after 10 years of buzzing and I could say it looks great.

Somehow my hair is laid as it should and covers NW2 or even NW1 if you look from the distance.

Totally satisfied, hope they won't fall out any time soon.

In the thumbnail photo he looks damn near an 8, then from watching the video and seeing other photo's, no he's like a 6.5 tops, but still absolutely mogs himself slybald. Somehow hair has completely changed the shape of his face, he's a 4, 5 tops, and invisible to women.

Still not the worst looking bald guy, but looks good? Absolutely not.
Look, fat...

Perhaps it's just my perception.

For a man in his late 30s I would say he's a 7 for that age group.

Way better looking than average.

He doesn't seem to have a good head shape for it. He looks older with the shaved head, is that what you meant when you said he should date thirty year olds?

I believe age-matching within 5 or so years is wise. Statistics show that couples that marry when they are of similar age succeed far more than age gaps larger than 5 years.

If he's 36 (if my memory is right) then he wouldn't ideally search below 30 (if he wants a good LTR).

If its just sex then fair play.

Best analysis of this guy. He's a fucking five, and a five with no endearing visual qualities. The delusion of him thinking it looks ok is even uglier.

Just a note: I didn't start this thread. I posted it in an off topic chat.

Sometimes when somebody else amends our posts or moves them with consent it can change the context.

I was just posting it because I think its interesting but I'm not really trying to push a bald agenda on to you all

No visual qualities?

Straight white teeth, clear skin, nice eyes, strong eyebrows, solid jaw, good muscle mass*, decent skin tone, solid beard density.

He's genetically better than most men.

*good muscle mass, but body fat is a little too high - if he lost 15lbs of fat he'd look much better

You can cite his positive traits, it sounds very logical and reasonable, but intuitively, or subconsciously: 5/10.

And that's how women will judge him. Baldness easily substracted 2.5 points from his looks.

Not every topic, especially one about hair loss needs to be shoved into the Community Coffee Shop.

The title reflects the content. He embraced his baldness. And most of us see through this kind of overly positive YouTube propaganda, those exercices in trying to invert the most basic realities.

Hopefully, the newbies find this topic and think twice before letting their hair loss making them permanently look uglier.

2.5 points/a 7.5 with hair? Nah, I‘m with hairblues on this one. Maybe 5.5 vs. 6.5.

All I know is that I'd have to use a lot of 'no homo's' to describe his looks on the picture with hair.

On the right, nah, really nah, so for me it's that strong, at least 5 vs. 7. But maybe the opinion of a woman is more relevant here.

No homo.
