[Style] Hairstyles, Facial Hair, and the Theory of Rugged Manliness
So, reading all the Movember stuff got me curious. What's the consensus on Shaved Head + Facial Hair? I don't want to look like a neo-nazi, but my two hairstyle choices are limited to...
1: Shaved Head
2: Generic Male Pattern Baldness Style #268
...if I want to look somewhat normal. Still, I suppose the "Skullwrap" could be done if I were feeling daring. I don't have any pictures, so I'll give a short description. I'm 28 yrs. old 5'9, with a stocky, heavy-boned build (Wide shoulders, thick, muscley neck, etc). Not terribly overweight, but I do have a little pot belly. My head isn't too big or small, but I think shaving it makes it look bigger than it is. Oval-shaped face. (The best for facial hair, I hear. Not too square or round or long). Unfortunately my neutral expression isn't all that friendly or warm. It's rather... grim looking, in fact. So I think I give off a creepy vibe...
But I'm just a big man-child, really. A bald teddy bear. I'm even good with kids!
So what facial hair styles do you guys think goes with a shaved head? If I'm gonna look intimidating and scary, I might as well not do it half-assed. Maybe go for something more "Machiavellian" than brutish. I prefer a more intelligent look despite my manly physique.
((You can get a hint of my facial figures by the expressionistic pic I editted of myself a while back in my sig that leads to my Steam page. Feel free to ask your own questions about [style] ))
