    "old hipster wanna be" is not really much different from "fat old hipster wanna be."

    i like combovers they look cool!

    another cool thing for the hair deficit is the ghost haircut.

    its when someone with thinning hair gets a good haircut as if all the hair is there!

    love that ! looks cool and confident

    As I mentioned in the haircut thread, I quit getting haircuts in 68, and just brush it all back, and tie it there if need be. As I get more bald, this ends up technically being a combover, although I haven't changed anything about how I comb it. As I also mentioned in the other thread, I'm too old to give a crap about what anyone thinks about my head.

    The last time I had someone else cut my hair was in the early '90s. I just grab the ends and snip. Don't do the man bun or a pony tail, but keep it as long as I can without doing them.

    Your hair loss is in the Rogaine sweet spot. Foam up, cupcake, and may the god of follicles be with ye.

    Speaking of Bill Wyman, compare & contrast the hairstyles of Mick Jagger & Keith Richards. Approximately the same age, from approximately the same place. Approximately the same careers.

    Mick is fun, but I respect Keith.

    For that matter, consider Miles Davis toward the end of his career.

    I suppose you can think of a wig as a sort of fashion accessory, like a hat. But, still.

    Well.....

    They live a lot longer when they're fit. And they can change their truck tire, sometimes even the engine.

    I think a lot of people are "fluid" when it comes to who is "wanna be" and who is not. Some people are on a "more hip" trajectory and others are more square every day. I think hipsters wake up every morning, only to discover they're not it anymore. You cannot pick whether you are hip or not, you can't.

    as you grow older, you'll find that hair is superfluous, and you don't really need it.

    this settles it. Miles Davis wig for me. And I'll adopt the fiery glower as well.

    I’ve been using it for 10 years. It has slowed the progression a lot but it’s a losing battle.

    Baldness is simply evolution! We were covered in hair millions of years ago and as we progress, we need less body fur. Ergo, those of us with our heads sticking out the top of our hair are more advanced than our hirsute contemporaries. I might write a thesis on the subject if I can find my crayons.
