It's head-shaving season in the big city, reports the New York Times. "It is not easy to shave a head," notes one barber, "because the razor edge is square — and the head is round." When heat 'n' humidity is high, there's nothing as nice as a close-cropped top.

Try it – you’ll like it.

I’ve generally kept very short hair since my HS days anyway, and that certainly has its benefits to those of us in the fire service. No helmet-head, for example. A while back I decided I’d try the bald look, and I loved it from the get-go. It does keep you much cooler, and once you get into a routine of shaving your scalp it’s really not all that difficult. I tell the probies (“newboys” to you folks down there) that it makes me faster than them despite my increasing age…and I think one or two of them actually believe it.

Attribute it to my ‘coming of age in the 70s…just can’t bear to lose what little I still have left. I think actually paying for several bad haircuts in the army helped preserve ‘the look’. And at my age, I ain’t looking for speed anyway.
