How do you tell a brother to nix his comb-over without offending him?

Post  Luke on Wed May 05, 2010 4:46 pm

I need your help, shavemates. My brother's hairline has been receding the last few months almost to the point of no return. So how do you tell someone that his comb-over looks llamo w/o hurting his feelings?

ALL suggestions are welcome. Speak your mind, I don't mind.

Tell him if he shaves he will look as good as you with no more hair worrys . .
And as a bonus he will receive a free lifetime membership too this forum . .
And if none of this works tackle him too the ground and shave his head for him . .

Good idea. You can't reason with anyone that's hanging on to a few stray hairs. They gotta go. NOW!
I say a surprise attack while he's sleeping is the way to go.

Maybe the guy needs to put on his glasses. He needs to take a closer look at his brothers
head. If that's not inspiration, what else is.

I've got a buddy with a terrible comb-over. I think he must spray or otherwise plaster his few remaining strands of hair to his head. Seems like a lot of work to me and he's probably in denial that anyone notices how bald he is through his strands of hair. I know I had a lot of denial when I first started losing my hair and shut out the word bald from my vocabulary for a long time and wouldn't look at a mirror where I could see the back of my head. Now I'm a very proud bald man so I guess it comes down to your level of self-confidence and willingness to deal with reality. For your brother you might tell him about your own experience in dealing with baldness and let him know how freeing it is to be done with the hair worries. You can be the role model for him. He'd probably have to deal with some comments like "so you finally got rid of that bad comb-over" which would probably be humbling at first to realize folks have been noticing it, but he's got to look forward to more inner-security by being himself.

It's about the same. Thanks for all your responses. I've tried to be a positive role matter concerning this
issue, but since I'm the younger brother, he refuses to admit that his little brother is right.
He's one very stubborn man.

I look at it this way, if your brother's grass is patchy, it's time for him to mow the lawn.
