    Nothing feels better than a good buzz cut

    My standard cut is a 2 guard on the sides and back...slightly longer on top. I am a thick healthy NW3 so I go for the "I admit I am balding look." Trying to hide it with long hair or hats is too exhausting and a buzz cut feels so damn good.

    I haven't used a comb or hair spray in about 3 years.

    Re: Nothing feels better than a good buzz cut

    Great post as I just got my hair cut very similar today. I agree, sometimes trying to cover it up is just not worth it. It gets so long that it actually looks worse and is depressing and after a good cut I feel sort of relieved. It's just an "honest" look. Seriously a great post Cassin. Thanks

    Its a bit frightening the first time you do it, especially when you're a third way through the norwood chart but its worth the 1 day of worry.

    Re: Nothing feels better than a good buzz cut

    i have buzzed my hair a few times purely due to the hassle of thin annoying hair and i have to admit it felt great... only problem is that i look like a thug with a buzz cut and i cant look like that due to the job i am in.....

    if i didnt have to work again i would cut it all off...

    Re: Nothing feels better than a good buzz cut

    I usually buzz my hair but I've had it at medium length for a while, one thing that gets me is that my hairline looks worse/more receded when my hair is long but when my hairs buzzed or really short it doesn't. Is that a normal thing or is it just me?

    Thinning hair always look bette rshorter. My crown for example is thin but not bald, but when i cut it short the thin patch seems so much smaller.

    Hey dudemon, what length can you cut your hair at the back so you don't see the scar? grade 3?

    Oh I don't mean that it looks thinner, my hair is actually still pretty thick (norwood 2 atm) what i meant was that the shape of the hairline looks more receded then it does when my hair is short.

    Yeah your right. You really feel like brand new person, and probably the best thing I ever did regarding my hairloss. I have only got postive coments so far.

    If you are a nw3 but the rest of your hair is thick then you dont really "need" to buzz it down, there is still plenty there to pull off medium to long hairstlyes.

    Naw....buzzed down feels so clean and I don't have to mess with a comb or styling.
