I feel a little weird to post about it, but here goes: my husband is definitely losing his hair (he’s 30) and part of me is sad about that!
It’s not that I have anything against bald men in particular. After all, my dad is bald (he’s got hair on the sides only) and has been for as long as I can remember (so since he was 34 when I was born, that’s from his 40s on). I see pictures of my dad when he was young and had hair and I think, wow, he was so handsome and young-looking! Of course I think he’s handsome now too, but there’s a difference between having something and losing it and never having had it at all (as far as my memory is concerned).
My husband is definitely sad and a little sensitive about his hair loss, but there’s no way he’s going to do anything about it. Thankfully I think famous bald men like Sean Connery and Patrick Stewart are hot (no, really), so everytime he gets down on himself about it I tell him if the worst thing in his life is that he’s turning into Sean Connery, then he’s got bigger fish to fry! That cheers him (and me) up.
Is your fiance/husband losing his hair? How do you (and him) feel about it?

ha ha you think being 30 and loosing your hair bad?
My FI is 23 and has pretty much lost most of it. It will definetly all be gone by the time he is 25 (as was his older brother)
Our children are doomed as we both didn’t luck out with the hair genes, I have thin, fine hair, and all his family looses their hair ha ha
But honestly, it doesnt bother me – his baldness. I love him the way he is, and I have accepted it. I know he will be the splitting image of his father (who is also bald) so I know what I have gotten myself into. I do feel bad for him cause like your hubby he is sensitive about it too, I mean who wouldnt at 23 and be practically bald!?

My husband was bald before I met him (he started losing his hair when he was the ripe old age of 21 and has buzzed his hair ever since), so I’m sort of with you on the, "I don’t know what I’m missing since I never had it."
I love it though. I think it’s seriously one of the most endearing qualities about him. He’s very secure in the fact that he lost his hair when he was so young, so we tease him in a good way about it. He’s my fuzzball, and I often rub his little bald head, b/c it needs love too ya know! To make up for it a bit, my husband is a big fan of facial hair. I think that helps make up for the fact that he has no hair on top!
In all seriousness though, it’s definitely tough to deal with when he had a full head of hair when you met him. The best thing to do is to embrace it with him, and show him that you love him whether he’s got Gilles Marini hair or bald as a cue ball. Nothing is worse than the combover…my FIL has that right now. Just acccept it!
For some support, I attached a picture of me and the Mister. [attachment=208056,19594]

I’ve heard that the Rogaine Foam works if you start when the hair starts to fall out. It’s easier to maintain hair than it is to grow new hair.

Yeah, my fiance started losing his hair when he was about 20 or 21….pretty much the top of his head is totally bald, but he shaves everything so there’s just no hair at all. He’s kind of insecure about it but I’m totally fine with it!

My FI is starting to get a receding hairline but I think he’s in denial. I think bald is sexy! His dad has gone bald so I kinda know what FI will look like…. My dad has a full head of hair and so does his dad. So we’ll see what sorts of genes we pass on!
My sister also married a balding man (he’s pretty much all-the-way bald now) and their 16 month old baby is still bald!
Bald is starting to look like a weird word, like I spelled it wrong or something. 🙂

@chelseamorning: While this isn’t really a situation that’s likely to happen for me, I think it was a great idea for a post! And I can definitely empathize. My ex-boyfriend started losing his hair at 22 or so and it was really hard for him. He tried to mask it for awhile but now just shaves his head.
@mlkeysock: I’m usually not a huge fan of bald but your husband is adorable!

Thanks caitlanc! I think so too! I guess I’ll keep him for a while
I think the key is to just make them feel sexy about it! Especially if they’re sensitive. Bald is definitely beautiful!

My FI is not bald and has lots of har (more than I!). Some of my guy friends are bald (naturally bald in some spots so they just shave their heads bald or just bald for style). They look pretty good, I must say.
I feel that self-confidence is what makes a guy attractive regardless of whether they’re bald or not. If some guy actually resorts to hair transplants or spend copious amt of time combing over, I would actually feel that they’re less attractive since they care so much about their hair like a teenage boy.
@chelseamorning: I hope you can successfully encourage your man to embrace his new style, reminiscent of bruce willis & vin diesel, adding to ur list of charismatic bald men.

If anyone’s concerned, boys generally inherit their maternal grandfather’s hairline. At least that’s the way it has been in my family.
My man has been losing his hair for a while, but he’s confident about it and keeps it shaved so it’s not too noticeable. I think he’s hot.

They do have treatments for male pattern baldness – maybe something to look into? They all have their side effects of course, but it’s worth it for some people!

He has a full head of hair, and he’s in no danger of losing it anytime soon. He has more life in his hair than I do, which is really annoying!

My FI is definitely losing his hair and we’re only 22!! He doesnt shave it yet but you can tell he is thinning on the top quite a bit. But, it is what it is and i love him hair or no hair!
He says he doesnt care but we’ll see when it actually comes time for having to shave it haha!!

mine’s bald as a baby’s bottom! it was gone before I met him so I can’t miss what wasn’t there.
tell your man to shave it. It looks MUCH better like that. My FH recently made a friend shave b/c it looked terrible. His friend now looks 5 yrs younger!

My fiance’s hair is starting to thin on the top. It doesn’t look like his hairline is receding either, it’s just that the hair on the top of his head isn’t as thick as it used to be years ago. For what it’s worth, he’s 29. I don’t think it bothers him too much, since he doesn’t talk about it often or anything, but he is aware of it. It doesn’t bother me at all either.
Heh, actually I have a funny anecdote about that. A few years ago when we were visiting my family for xmas, he was helping my dad and my uncle build something, I don’t remember what, and they were all on the floor with the tools and the parts and whatnot, so you could see the top of his head very easily. My 17-year-old cousin was walking around looking at what they were doing and then she comes to me and says "Eeeewww, your boyfriend is going bald!", and I replied to her "So?" with a deadpan look on my face. She got so frazzled by my response. It was clear that she said it just to annoy me or make me feel bad that she just started stammering some kind of explanation for her comment. Fiance got a kick out of it when I told him about it later 🙂
