    exactly, I needed to get a new passport just because I looked too different in the old photo than in real life with my ratty bird's nest and beard cope. some security wouldn't believe it at first

    Did the 3 people who voted for a combover do it as a joke?

    I know that sometimes they can hide baldness but they are nearly always exposed at some point.

    4, lol. Combover is a good option, if density is normal, and there is a mild recession (Norwood 1.5-2).
    Buzzcut is better for aggressive thinning.
    Shaving with a razor is an aesthetic disaster and only a minority of men can pull off such look.
    Toppik is a waste of time and money, better to get high quality SMP imo.
    Beard cope can work on some men, but still facial hair has less aesthetic value, than head hair.

    If you are Norwood 2 its not even a combover.

    This thread is about advanced balding - so a nw4 and beyond.

    A combover at this stage is high risk - zircon said he had a combover at Norwood 4 and it worked and i'd actually like to see it.

    This is a good example of a combover for a norwood 3:

    It doesn't work that great on me because I have a little more thinning on top so it just doesn't work as well.

    Oh, I was inattentive. Agree, combover at Norwood 4 is not a good idea. I would better buzz and get a transplant + SMP.

    Non surgical replacement/hair system if it all turns bad



    Well, this would have been my number 1 option if I went bald in my teens and couldn't get a full head of hair.

    Not many teens or early 20 somethings who could afford to get a wig fitted every month though.

    I know I couldn't psychologically deal with wearing a wig - i'd be constantly living in fear.

    I'd get the money somehow, from family probably if I was that age. Rather live in fear of something being exposed then actually be exposed as a baldy. That would have translated into a very different youth for me from every angle.

    0 guard or short buzz for NW4-6
    bic for NW7

    NW4 combovers tend to look atrocious unless you're passed middle age, in which case they are somewhat more acceptable

    i'm already a norwood 6 and i buzz it down to a 1/8 inch. although right now i'm lazy and its cold as fuck so i just have it trimmed down like to a 3/8 inch or half inch. i'm often wearing a beanie so i can get away with it

    i'm walking around a legit 5 this winter with the thick jacket covering up my girl frame + hiding baldness with beanie :D

    I'm ugly and I cover my face with a full beard. To my surprise, ladies hit on me way more when I shave, I can't understand why.

    The only people who can get away with no facial hair when bald is those with a perfect jawline.

    Looks good, but if I was that dude I would get on finasteride and get like a 2500 graft transplant so I wouldn't have to worry about that shit.
