    I would gladly go NW7 if it means being 6'1 with a proportional build.

    Ha funny I have that (I have an ass and hips that are a little bigger than ideal for a man but my chest and shoulders make up for it) and I would trade down to 5'10 if it meant having a solid, thick NW2 for my whole life.

    Aren't you average height or near? I wouldn't agree with that, maybe if I was 5'5 but I'm 5'10, I'll stick with that if it means not being slick bald.

    I think this(imo correct) reasoning translates to many other aestethic factors also, because
    it's all about the percentile.

    Every added ''percentage point'' above average will have lesser added aestethic value.
    BUT! Every lost ''percentage point'' below average will have exponential negative impact on aestethic value.
    So:
    All percentiles below average are per definition extremely inhibitory to aesthetics, while all
    percentiles above average loose value with every ascending percentile.


    Why Androgenetic Alopecia has such devastating effect on aesthetics, one must understand that is because it
    leaves you practically exponentially handicapped correlated with age at onset of Androgenetic Alopecia because
    you then belong to an extremely small percentile on the negative end of the scale.

    Really, it's all about not being below in any high value factors.
    A man(or women) gets nowhere taking one step front and two steps back.

    I'm 5'11, but height and frame are vastly more important than hair.

    When I say 6'1, I don't mean a lanky 6'1, I mean a proportional 6'1.

    Ah so it's more broadness. I don't know if this is down to height but building bigger shoulders/traps/triceps/chest. From remembering your pictures I don't recall thinking you were disproportionate in top width, not big but also now small, but as you know you can build on that.

    2 inches in height will only make a slight difference to be honest.

    I know, I'm already re-considering because I remember someone had a similar one ages ago. I liked the way the slybald founder guy looks like he has a slight tear in his eye but it's not obvious from the avatar size.

    I loved the old one and story behind but I have had it for a long time. I'll need something else to come more naturally.

    I think that it was @CopeForLife who promoted that guy with every post. You are now his successor.

    I might switch my avatar at some point too.

    I thought it was him actually.

    What is your avatar? I always thought it was Ed Norton for some reason. I think we both levelled up in terms of usernames though.

    Yeah our username were very plain.

    My avatar is daredevil, from the TV show. It's not super-exciting:

    Back when I was a little younger and thinner with an NW2, people told me I was a doppelgaenger for that guy.

    Well that's quite compliment, he's good looking, in spite of his NW2.

    I don't get the bias against the NW2. Hell even a thick NW3. Before I became all autistic about this hairloss shit I honestly couldn't have told you the difference between a 1,2, and thick 3. Anything with diffuse thinning or above 3 I would call balding. The rest were just a full head of hair to me, widow's peaks seemed natural. I think most normies are like this. If I can get to a thick NW2 I will be happy as a clam with my hair.

    It doesn't matter what the conscious mind notices, beauty is in the subconscious.

    NW1 is best for a man.

    NW0 means you look like a woman, NW2 and above means you look old.

    I didn't and don't think the Daredevil guys looks old. Doesn't seem a teen ager, but he seems like a mid-20-something to early-30-something.

    Yeah he looks fantastic, he has more than enough awesomeness to compensate for a NW2.

    Great nose, chin, skin color, cheekbones, frame, body composition, body hair, etc that stuff is extremely important.

    He looks mid-30s I agree.
