I noticed that OfficeGirl had shaved her head, and I had mine shaved for just about a year… any others of the female sort out there shaved your head?
I had enough trouble when I had a skater-cut in high school; you’d figure guys could tell you were female when you were 34D. But I was always called “sir”…

No, but I did cut to about a half inch just before basic training. I loved it, my recruiter thought it was sensible, the drill sergeants were not amused.
mmmmmm butch hair and shaved heads… yummy!!
Don’t let the loveless ones sell you a world wrapped in grey.
Never, never. I’ve been growing my hair for about 6 years. It’s currently 18 inches (I measured it just for this thread). Would be longer, but I agreed to hack off several inches for my sister’s wedding.
I would love to- will someday…right now mines down halfway to my butt, so I guess I’ll wait a bit
And if you haven’t seen OfficeGrl’s pics of her shaved head, take a look. She looks absolutely beautiful without hair. She is a lucky girl- definately pretty enough to pull it off…
It was dark all around.
There was frost in the ground
When the tigers broke free-
I did. Once. Never again.
Actually, it wasn’t entirely shaved … though most military males have more hair than I did. At the longest point, it was maybe half an inch long, and just gone everywhere else. I think it would have shocked the hell out of most of my high school, except for the fact that my best friend at the time had a foot long electric blue mohawk.
Getting mistaken for a man wasn’t a problem. I just looked weird.
After that point, I let it grow and grow and was terrified to have it cut. When I finally gave in, my hair was so long that I was sitting on it and they cut off over 16 inches of hair.
I LOVED having my head shaved. I kept it that way for a year, and chances are I’ll do it again before I die.

You look good, Opalcat! Some people can pull off that look, some can’t (me). You definitely can.

My GF, rugby chick that she is, has a very short cut at the moment; it’s only slightly longer than my own crew cut. Even the most nearsighted fool couldn’t mistake her for a man, but at least once in my presence she was referred to as “that stupid dyke.” (That loudmouth spent the next six hours in the emergency room. Did I mention that I have a short temper?)
Opal, and any other girls who shaved their heads, I’m interested in knowing if you felt somewhat aroused when people touched your head when it was bald.
I noticed that.
In case you want to check out the little saga, here is the link
Opal, you look beautiful without hair! Very striking! Your facial features are delicate enough to be able to pull this off.
I think Elizabeth I had the right idea–shave your head and get a different wig for every day of the week. How simple, and you could have a blonde beehive one day and a red ponytail the next! No bad hair days–just keep an extra wig in your desk drawer at work!
you are locked in a passionate embrace with your new lover, in his excitement, he grabs your flowing locks to pull you to him closer…the hair comes off in his hands- the trauma leaves him impotentent for years.
the moral of this tale is to warn your man if you have a wig on…
Did any of the rest of you who shaved their heads have weeks of discomfort as the hair grew out and was prickly to sleep on? I looked like the human kiwi fruit.
Now, I just lose my hair when I have to be nuked
I never found it arousing, but man, I couldn’t stop rubbing my head … it is like some people biting their nails… the urge was too strong to resist.
It was fun though, how so many people you’d never expect would ask to touch your head. I had LITTLE OLD LADIES in grocery stores come up and ask to feel my head. It was weird (in a cool way).
When my hair grew back it was kinda irritating, yeah.
I shaved a circle on the top of my head. The rest of my hair is waist length. Its started to grow out and is about 6" long where I shaved it.
