I'm new here. Happened to stumble across this place when I googled pics of "male models with thin hair" to see if there were any (still see none). Anyways, thought this would be a good place to join and see what it's all about!!
Here's my story:
My hair started to thin around 16. Right on the edge of the temples. Slowly, it made its way from the sides to taking over my whole hairline and more. High school ended with me going to prom and having my mom take her gray hair black dye stick and fill in spots on my head to make it look fuller. By the end of the night, I was sweating and it was running.
Going to college, it wasn't too bad because I still had a good amount of hair and growing it out was best. I went through a couple of different hair styles that fit my head well and the thinning wasn't noticeable b/c the hairstyles were the focal point, either wearing "waves" or having it in a curly type fashion. Then sometime during my sophomore year, that all went south as no hair grows in the front of my head all of a sudden and the bald spot at the crown of my head made its presence known even more.
So here I am, in my senior year of college and the thinning has started to bother me, but not as one may think. I was concerned and upset about the thinning when I was in my teens, but now I know it's not coming back and I just accept it for the most part. The part that bothers me is now I want to try a different look. For women, if their hair thins they can go and get a wig and bam, new look. What's the option for guys? I've now joined the shaved head and beard group that many others with thinning hair have joined as of late it seems. The shaved head is fine and so is my beard, but are there any other options? Male wigs? haha
something.....that's the only thing I'm having a problem with.
PS: When I say shaved, I mean with clippers not an actual razor. My head and skin is very sensitive and shaving with a razor and shaving cream does not work well on top of my head although it's not bad when shaving my neck for my beard.
Thanks for reading if you got this far haha
I attached some pics of my head that I took with my iPhone to give you guys an idea. Picture taking is not my strong point, as you can see
