At a certain stage during your balding process (which comes rather fast) you basically have no choice but to trim it down. You do not necessarily have to get a razor blade and go full bald, but just get a maintained clean cut.
I usually feel sorry for balding guys you see running around with long haircuts with thin hair and bald spots sticking out at every spot, insisting to keep it long and grasping out for last hairs. It doesn't only look ridiculous to women but also to other men.
The first few days it might feel like shock, but after a week you get used to it, it looks better and you feel much better about yourself.
But that's just my opinion.
So basically yeah, people who have doubts; get the buzzer and give it a go.
