Do you want a 4chan answer, or an SE answer, or a polite answer?

Baldness ain't necessarily sexy, nor distinguished, nor anonymous, nor anything else specific. Chopping just means you've chopped. It'll grow back (unless you've abused drugs, radioactives, biochems, etc). If you stay in one place, people may wonder. If you travel a lot, nobody knows you, and you can reinvent yourself however you wish. If I go to Guatemala and I'm hairy, I'm Santa Claus; if shorn, I'm Mr Clean. If I'm shorn and dress sloppy and don't bathe often, I'm Russian, and don't get bothered by street vendors. If I'm shorn and dress well and smoke; then I'm French, and also not bothered. What your hair (or lack thereof) does for you depends on where and who you are. Just try not to frighten the neighbors. (OMFG he's a nazi skinhead -- RUN RUN RUN!!)

i feel the same, i have tried growing my hair out several times, but i just get annoyed with the added prep time and its just hot and irritating. so i always end up cutting it, and boy does that feel good.

When my uncle finished his Navy Reserve Active Duty, he swore he'd never get another haircut. We burried him with his pony tail when he was 49. And he was a machinist! His obituary was published in NHRA News. Shirley Muldowney sent flowers.
