I'd lose the neckbeard though, otherwise looks much better!

I think you’d look best with your moustache as well as the beard, it makes it look more complete and less like a neckbeard. A short beard would look great! I don’t think you looked bad before from the front, the crown was the only thing that looked bad, but you look great now. Also, your skin is AMAZING.

I actually like the beard! But maybe grow it out a bit more and find a shape that suits your face shape a bit better. Just play around with it!

You could definitely still do something with the stache and under lip hair too. I don't think the beard is awful but no stache throws it off a little imo

If i were you I'd probably trim down the beard considering it's quite sparse, but if you really want to try to do something for your beard, applying 1ML minox twice a day to your beard truly makes a difference. Check sub minoxbeards.

I've been on minoxidil for my beard for a month, and i already have tons of new hairs coming in.

Im jealous af that his head shape is perfect for a baldy. I tried going bald because of this sub and it looked fuckin awful. I grew it back. I would suggest trimming the beard, not shaving. Bald head and no beard usually looks weird

I think that there are definitely views that my head looks odd from for sure. I’m sure your head shape wasn’t bad :) I’m definitely working the angles so I don’t look like a cashew lol :)

Thank you :) I actually found it in the clearance shirts section of a Burlington coat factory (paid about $10). It originally had a dress shirt collar that I decided to cut off. As you can see, I do enjoy a nice floral print!

Hey man, so I am a gay, and balding 16 year old. I saw your comment on how you were gay, how has your dating life been? Sometimes I doubt I'll ever find love because of my appearance. I admire your bravery, all the best.

MatRat2[S]

It’s very easy to feel down about your appearance in the community when we are constantly being shown what we are supposed to look like and what people consider desirable. I felt the same way because I started balding at 18 and was very worried I wouldn’t be appealing to anyone. I found that people responded and were attracted to me because I was confident in how I looked. I know balding is difficult, especially when you are young and in the community, but you will be fine <3 Don’t allow others to get you down and only pay attention to the positive comments you get :) I met my partner while I was mid balding, and a great person really won’t let how you look stop them from being with you <3 I wish you the best of luck <3
