So,im 19 years old and unfortunately have a receding hairline(Thanks Dad).I have recently become of the problem that this could be something that knocks my confidence when attracting girls.

This is the advice i need. Should of shave my head? (My dad rocks a shaven head but he is 49).

..Receding really bad aswell...

I wouldn't sweat it. You look pretty good to me.

Always time to shave later if you decide to go for it.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

You signed up for an Apple/Macintosh internet forum to make your 1st post a "should I shave my head" question.

I know that we're good...but I didn't realize that we were that good!!!

I started buzzing (not shaving) in 2005 for two reasons. The first is like you I had a receding hairline. The second is I started riding motorcycles and did not care much for helmet hair. I don't take all of it off mine is more like a military cut. Now that I have done this, I would never go back to having hair. However, I am close to your fathers age. I do see younger people with shaved or military cuts and they look good.

When I decided to buzz my hair off I knew if I did not like it that it would grow back. If you decide to do it, there will be a period of time where you have to get used to it,

FWIW that's the way I wear my hair also, buzz it to about 1/8 inch and cut it again when it gets between 1/4 and 3/8 inch.

Actually, you inherited that from your mother's genes. Your maternal grandfather probably had a receding hairline. If your father also has one, that's double trouble.

Well, I appreciate that considering I started losing my hair because I was using Windows for many years and not using my iMac. So any kind of hair support is great!

Hair is over rated these days.. Its a hassle and just not stylish. I say shave it off or at least trim it all the way back with a trimmer. Thats what I do. Its fantastic never having to worry if your hair is brushed or how it looks.

@Exodist

How are things going where you are? I don't think you were directly affected by the typhoon since you're a bit farther up north from there (if I'm remembering correctly). Anyway, I sincerely hope the aid that's coming from the US and other countries is getting to those who need it most.

In short follow two rules in life.

1. Only worry about the big things.

2. There are no big things just small things adding up.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
