After loosing my hair since the age of 16 and never imagining that at the age of 41 that I would be able to regain a hairline, I paid my deposit for my SMP first session to happen in Birmingham at the end of next week !
I am CRAZY excited and honestly can't wait for the day to come! My second session is booked for the week after.
One thing that seems to be agreed is that the shorter my natural hair is (sides and some at back), the better the transition between the areas will be. For years I've used clippers without any guard and have fairly light coloured hair, but it still leaves it a reasonable length that I can feel.
Am I better going for an electric shaver and if so any recommendations ? I don't mind wet shaving but use a vintage DE razor for my face so - guess I'm less likely to nick myself with the first option !

I will I promise !
I'm so excited and wishing every day would go faster just so I can get the first session done ! Even sat last night dreaming that they would call and say "we have a cancellation" get your a$$ in the car ! LOL
I guess like many guys I just HATE having my photo taken .... I always have, as I lost my hair when I was in my early teens. It's been hard as for many years I worked as a professional musician, so was on stage and had years of cameras taking pictures for band and promo shoots. I always wore dark shades on stage (even in the winter LMAO) because I just hated how I looked and it was a way of hiding I guess.
It's only since I have realised there is a solution, that I have grown to accept how much it really has affected me over the years .... the result of years of taunting by people that know me. Being nicknamed everything from the standard Kojak back in my teens, to Dobby the House-elf thanks to Harry Potter and my nephews. To be fair, people that don't know me have never commented about my hair - just because with a bald head I look like a thug LOL.
It's such an exciting time for me, as it geniunly feels like I'm turning my life around. I've now lost 4.5 stone and work out 3 times a week with a personal trainer at the gym (who I am sure is trying to kill me). It feels like I'm on one of those transform yourself TV shows !
I'm not confident about posting my proper full before pic yet, but once my confidence gets better I will post an after - and a before pic at the same time. Kind of a goodbye to the old me pic! Hell, I might even send you one of me with no hair looking like the Staypuff man LMAO.

I found the foil shaver a cleaner shave than the rotary shavers, also the rotary shaver I found it left my head a bit red for a while because you have to really make it work, but I do have thick hair.
Good luck, not that you will need it at all.
