Thinking of taking the plunge and shaving the rest of your head? From the Wall Street Journal:
"Bald is hot. Jason Statham, Guy Ritchie's burly leading man, is shorn. So are Bruce Willis, surfer god Kelly Slater and famous footballer Thierry Henry. Contrary to the ego-shrinking stereotype of baldness, the minimalist look gives these gents mettle.
A man's shaved head--whether it's to-the-skin or with slight stubble--can suggest a sigh-inspiring combination of intellectual depth and machismo."
"Ever wonder what you would look like without hair? ShaveMyHead by HeadBlade® lets you shave anyone's head... right from your phone!

Ever wonder how you would look with a shaved head? Now you can check out a big list of celebrities who've been "balderized" and see what you think of them.
The pictures may (or may not) move you to shave your head, but no matter what your decision is, who can resist a picture of George Bush, Bill Clinton, Nicole Kidman, Paris Hilton, or Sarah Palin with a slick smooth dome?
Maybe your hairline is receding, or maybe you're a cage fighter, or maybe you just need a new spring look. Whatever the reason, if you're going to be scraping your skull with a razor on a regular basis, you're going to need a tool that works its wonders without taking forever to get the job done.
Although there are some other head shavers out there, one of the most recommended head shaving tools is the HeadBlade.
Take a look at MMA fighter Frank Trigg using the HeadBlade:
St. Baldrick's: Brave a Shave and Raise Money for Childhood Cancer Research
"In 1999, Tim Kenny challenged friends, John Bender and Enda McDonnell to find a way to give back to society. These three reinsurance executives turned their industry's St. Patrick's Day party into a benefit for kids with cancer. What could they do to really turn the heads - and the wallets - of their colleagues?
John suggested shaving Enda's head since kids typically lose their hair during cancer treatment. "People will gladly pay to see you bald, Enda!" Never one to miss an opportunity, Enda replied, "I will if you will," and St. Baldrick's was born.
The three planned to raise "$17,000 on the 17th," recruiting 17 colleagues to raise $1,000 each to be shorn. Instead, the first St. Baldrick's event, held on March 17, 2000, raised over $104,000!
St. Baldrick's is now the world's biggest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer! In the nine years since its inception, events have been held in 18 countries and 48 states, shaving more than 72,000 heads, and raising over $50 million toward research for a cure for childhood cancer.
The holiday season is upon us once again, and it's time for all of you to start stimulating the economy. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to spend your way out of this economic crisis, one gift at at time! OK, maybe not the soundest advice, but there will be some people you still want to buy for, and some who will still be expecting a gift. Aside from the electric razors we've tried to keep most things below $50 on this year's holiday gift guide.
I'm still loving the powered razors. A little vibration goes a long way toward a smooth and comfortable shave. The Gillette Fusion may trump Schick on number of blades, but the Quattro's now got this kick-ass trimmer for keeping your whiskers or sideburns in line. Gillette Fusion Power - $10.99 Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer - $12.49
Same group as last year, only the Braun Pulsonic has been rebranded the Series 7. Still the top of the line traditional electric razor in my book. If rotary is your game, choose between either the wet/dry lubricant-dispensing Moisture Shaving System, or the more classic arcitec. Braun Series 7 - $227 Philips Norelco Moisture Shaving System - $129 Philips Norelco arcitec - $219
The BodyGroom is still going strong, now with a professional edition with "high-performance trimmer attachment", as well as another set of hysterical videos worthy of a Webby. And if completely bare is where you're headed, there's still no beating the Cleancut - the #1 choice in the porn industry. Philips Norelco Bodygroom - $49.99 Seiko Cleancut - $67
A year later and I still don't want to talk about it. If you know a guy who needs one of these, just do him a favor - buy it for him, and give it to him while no one else is in the room. MANGROOMER - $39.95
Nicks and cuts come at exactly the wrong time. Your dopp kit needs a Nick Stick for fast healing after a particularly brutal shave. And while I still haven't made peace with the goatee, I have to admire the ingenuity which went into the Goatee Saver. Somebody's got to get us out of this economic mess. The Nick Stick - $5.95 The Goatee Saver - $19.99

Time for another one of these things we call reviews. For the past month or so we've been shaving with Bold For Men, a maverick in the shaving world. How so? With Bold For Men, you don't use any water. Aside from shaving oils, the only other product I've used which didn't call for a base of wet skin was Kiehl's. But while Kiehl's is a drier paste, Bold For Men is a more liquidy gel. Smells vaguely like banana.
Applying Bold For Men couldn't be easier. After a shower just smooth some over your beard. That's it. No pre-shave oil. No warm water. Just squeeze and apply. Obviously Bold For Men wins the no-mess award hands down. If you're annoyed by splashes of water running down your chest and all over your sink, you've just met your savior.
Shaving with Bold For Men is no different than other shaving creams. Wait 30 seconds for Bold to sink in, then get your blade hot and wet, stroke, and rinse often. The shave is pretty darn good too. My only complaint with the shave was that Bold For Men wasn't the best at lifting up finicky hairs. You know those hairs that seem to grow parallel instead of perpendicular. (Oh, did I just bust out the geometry?)
I have to admit that I was pretty nervous about using Bold For Men the first time. No water seemed like a recipe for disaster. Also, I've seen a few too many videos on YouTube of bad shaving behavior. But my fears we unfounded. Nicks and cuts were rare, and again, the shave was pretty darn good.
There is something in Bold For Men that gives me pause. Immediately after applying Bold my lips felt a little numb. I've had that before with several products - Brave Soldier, Pacific Shaving Oil - and the tingling did go away quickly. Might be me since I seem to have sensitive lips. (My wife agrees.)
Also, sensitive skin - like under the eyes and below the ears - got a little red from Bold For Men. I'm talking about the areas just beyond where you shave, but areas where shaving cream typically ends up as you spread it over your face. The redness went away quickly, so I wasn't concerned, but if you've got especially delicate skin, you might steer clear.
Get Some Bold For Men is $20. Free shipping between now and July 15th. Also recommended for head shaving.
The saga continues!!! A couple weeks ago the country watched in shock and glee as Britney Spears shaved her head. Since then she's checked into rehab and called herself the antichrist, sparking endless speculation about her mental health. And now she's getting support from a most unlikely person - ex hubby K Fed.
That's right. In a show of solidarity, Kevin Federline has also shaved his head. I guess he's trying to distract us with his own crazy antics. It's like "Oh look, K Fed shaved his head. He's crazy! Britney who?" Or maybe it's more like "Well K Fed did it too, so it can't be that nuts. Maybe I should shave my head."
Here's one thing I think is particularly funny about this story. Despite K Fed's attempt at media deflection, his story is mostly being covered by such news sources as The Himalayan Times and the Miami Poetry Review. There's definitely something poetic about all this. Two star-crossed lovers...
So I've been writing this Celebrity Facial Hair column now for about a year, and Kevin Federline has the dubious distinction of being the first repeat profile. Back in November we featured K Fed when he was in the news for Britney and his divorce. Now the two are talking about getting back together. And who knows, maybe headshaving will become the new trend. Life certainly does has a funny way of working itself out.
