I like bald much better than balding - a few of my cousins have completely shaved their heads to get around the balding look, and they look great! It really has taken years off for them. It depends on the person though, and some people look better with hair. As for women, it depends a lot on face shape and type of hair. I like long hair on myself, but that's because it's much easier to manage than shorter hair.
Worst thing about bald men is if they sit in front of you at a Concert, Show etc, various lights around theatre reflect off their shiny dome & into your eyes! I HATE sitting behind bald men & having to see their baldy surface! Right PIA, or head in this case!
In a word, no. That comes second in my top three of 'deal-breakers' (fat being the first). Call me shallow but it just does not do it for me. And I like long hair on most women. I have seen some women who look ok with short hair, but they are few & far between. And, if it suits them, a man with long hair is a massive turn-on for me.
No, for me personally, I've never liked looking at bald guys, but it does suit some of them I guess, but I feel sorry of them in winter! My husband is 72 & nearly 3 months, & he only started losing some hair...this year. It's now just getting a few grey streaks in it as well. It's a shame really, because he used to be the only black haired, guy (without hair dye!) on our cruises!
