Adam Avitable with a shaved head

The one where I embrace my baldness with a razor in hand

I’d be lying if I didn’t say that this wasn’t a small part of my inspiration:

But the full truth is that I just got sick of my hair, and after a small survey online, most people told me I should absolutely not shave my head. But there were a few of you out there who said that I might have a lumpy head or might not be able to pull off the bald look, and it was that challenge that intrigued me. How would I ever know unless I just went ahead and did it?

After a careful arrangement of sheets that successfully prevented a single hair from getting on the floor or on my desk, I recorded the following video which I present to you in case you have four minutes of your life that you want to waste watching a fat hairy guy shave his head. Hey, I don’t know what type of fetishes you sickos are into.

Or, if you just want to skip ahead to the final product, here you go:

I think I like it. I . . . think. I do know that when I woke up this morning and went to run my hands through my hair it freaked me out for a second, so I’m still not used to it. But I will be soon. It’s still too early to tell if I’ll keep it like this or just grow it back, but for now, my name is Adam Avitable and I am a bald man.

  1. Gorgeous. And that was my fear too… the lumpy head part, I mean, not the eye-stabbing thing, though that sounds pretty heinous, and now I have a new fear. Thanks a lot.

    Um, have you received my “application” yet? I’ll rub yours if you rub mine… #ohyesshedid

    (Don’t tell my husband. Shhhhh…)

  2. 1. You look great with the shaved head.

    2. Like Allison Zapata above… my 3 year old sat here and watched you shave your head with me. She made me watch it 3 times. She wants to know what “bomb diggy diggy” means.

    3. She wants to type her name… ana


  3. I like it! But then again, I have a thing for bald guys, seeing as how I married one.

    My husband shaved his head after seeing how bad the patchy bald thing was coming in. He said that if he knew what a chick magnet a shiny melon was, he’d have shaved it in high school instead of waiting until he was in his late 30s.

    You’ll have to report back on if this changes the attention you get from the ladies.

  4. I’m probably the only one who’s gonna say this … but I adore you and you know me … so I can say that I don’t like it.

    I love change, but there’s something about you being totally bald that I just don’t like. Maybe because you look too mean … like the inspiration picture … and you’re not … I mean, I dunno. LOL

    PS – Thanks for not killing me in the sleep now that you’re all badass and shit just because I’m a naysayer. <3
