No-Guard Buzz Vs. Headshave

Post  malek on Fri Jan 08, 2010 12:35 pm

Out of curiosity, and from reading the many topics here, I thought it would be interesting to ask the reasons for why you prefer a headshave over a no-guard buzz cut? I thought some interesting answers might come up.

To some folks this story is getting stale. Anyway, the thought of headshaving came up immediately after I proposed to my wife. Her parents planned a huge engagement party at the Yacht Club. Things were getting way out of hand. I wanted some control of the situation, so I scraped off my hair. Anyway, I showed up to the party bald. I guess you could say that I was testing her true feelings for me. There were some shocked looks at first. But to sum it up, my wife and her parents were receptive to my slick shavedhead. They said it gave me more character. Who would have ever thunk? I tried buzzed-bald, but it just didn't work for me. So I've been shaved bald ever since!

It's all about being comfortable and confident in one's skin. Some prefer "some" hair even if it's a no guard buzz. They're more comfortable with that small amount of hair. I for one prefer my head shaved. It took some time to reach a level of confidence where I felt comfortable totally shaved bald, but there's no turning back for me. A no-guard buzz would be a step back for me.

It all depends on the mood I'm in and if I have the time. Maintaining a completely bald head takes more time than a no-guard buzz. I prefer the end results of a shaved slick head, but sometimes it makes more sense for me to go with the buzz.

I prefer a headshave to a buzz, especially during the winter, when I wear knit hats. A buzzed head sticks to the
hat and is very annoying.

Sounds like a case of the dreaded VELCRO head. Shocked
That's why I maintain a slick head.

But Razorman, if you have some stubble up there it will help hold the hat on. I find that if I have a slick noggin, the hat tends to want to slip off. I think I have found a solution to that problem. I am still working on the details of it...but as soon as I get all the kinks worked out, I will let you all in on the secret. **HINT** it has to do with what a woman would use in their hair.... got you all wondering now dont I? lol

I agree with Luke. In the future a may opt for a no guard buzz, but since I'm new to this totally bald thing I'll stick with totally hair-free for a while.

A no-guard buzz looks fine on young guys. I'm no whippper snapper and prefer the full monty.

I find that it's good from time to time to give my head a break
and go the no-guard buzz route.

My head rebounds nicely after a no-guard break.
