    Wigs look stupidly obvious. Who's fooling who? I prefer to consider follicular austerity as my head being a stud's solar panel.

    If I lived in your neck of the woods I could get away with this. Not only respectable but downright sexy:

    I had a buddy who went to a hair restoration place, and had a big chunk of his hair in back moved to the front of his head. Mmmm, then he had a long flap of hair covering up the back where they took out the plugs, and well, uh, I guess each to his own. Now, after several years he has lost most of the hair in the front again, and there's this little island of hair between what has fallen out, and what they took out. It's kind of hard to hide your head from people unless you do wear a hat. I like wearing a ball cap, even a fedora once in a while, but when I wear a fedora, old ladies slip invitation notes in my pocket. So, I'm kinda careful how much I wear one of those things.

    Uh....maybe you could pass on some of those invitation notes, TD? I don't think even wearing a fedora would help me much.....;)

    Get yourself some florescent Pink leg-warmers (remember those?). It will take attention away from your head.

    The operative word that is "think." You'd never know until you don that fedora whether it would work for you or not.:D

    To me, a shaved head makes you look like a prisoner in the Gulag, or a guy trying to hide a bald head . A short haircut always looks good.

    Depends. Michael Chiklis reinvented his career with the dome:

    I don't think the problem is looking gaunt. It's the opposite. Michael didn't stay in shape. I would look a lot like this if I shaved my head, except with bigger moobs:

    If the hair on your back is long enough, you could do a reverse comb-over.:eek::lol:

    I find it weird that people are bothered by baldness. I went bald at 18, got the clippers out job done. There is no solution that doesn’t look ridiculous, just look at Donald Trump for reference. Embrace the bald :)

    Easy. Just lose some weight, so that you are a "middle aged bald guy"
    Only problem is, that combover wasn't good enough for him either.

    Not true. As an earlier poster mentioned, he has a friend who spent top dollar for one that doesn't look like a wig. I know two guys who did that too, but they each eventually embraced the bald. Before they did, their hair looked real. In fact those pieces used real human hair as well.

    Remember, when people say "they can always tell when someone has a wig" that's because they only notice the bad ones. The "real" "expensive" ones are fooling everyone.

    Gotta say, I'd go with one of these two handsome ways, if this were my problem.

    1) Show the world that you find life's unfairness funny, and fun people will want to be your friend.

    2) Buzz it down to man it up. Nothing says Stoic Character like someone who knows that life cheating him doesn't = life defeating him.

    P.S. I'll trade you my still-all-there hair for your presumably two well-functioning ankles. (Arthur the Itis, and not Wisp the Attic, is my woe.)

    People make jokes about that stuff, but you know what? It really works.

    I have an actor friend who was doing prime time TV shows and knew lots of actors. She says almost everyone used Toppik (the biggest brand if the product you posted). Even if not completely bald, people use to thicken what they've got.
