Probably the first decent decision he's ever made - although just shaving it off would have made a lot of sense too.

 

Correct.

 

I did a few years of gelling and cajoling my thinning hair to cover my head and then just woke up one morning and thought feck this.

 

Number 2, diy and no more messing around.

 

Quite liberating, really.

I eventually persuaded my mate to do it after years of fighting it. instantly  Took years off him. 6 months later he’d left his horrible wife for a younger nicer model.

Well, that didn't happen for me, but my wife's nice.

 

Well, most of the time. 😊

Why? It's easy to keep and you don't need to spend 15quid every few weeks at the barbers, I take a .5 over mine and I prefer it to having hair. I was always scared of being bald aswell.

It all looks a bit Frankenstein's monster at that stage.

 

The top of the head lifted, abinormal (wee Young Frankenstein reference there) brain 🧠 inserted, then crudely sewn back on.

I think a transplant is fine if you deal with it early enough. McGowan has been resembling Coco the Clown for years however so everyone knows he's a baldie!

I used to have a fantastic head of hair and i actually really miss it. I'm not even a vain person in the slightest. It was probably best in the early 90s when i had a right good set of curtains that went down past my ears. Twisting my melon man.

Gave in during lockdown with a No 1 , wish I had done it years ago

 

0 now 🙂

Me too, as daft as it sounds I feel really scruffy after 3 days of leaving it unshaven, 

I don’t have a beard with it tho, undecided on that look

I used to have a bit of heavy growth, but I decided to shave my face down to a number one  now and prefer it so much more. A clean shaven head and a number one on the face feels incredible :)

Yeah it’s hard word when you still have a lot of hair growing but only takes a minute

 

Nae beard allowed  😩

 

My barber always said keep it while you have it  and I fell for it 🤪

Curtains are what your granny has, enjoy the bald.

I've got a Shankland esque shaped heed so going bald isn't an option. 

 

Some folk suit being bald. 

 

Only thing I'd seriously consider cosmetic wise. 

 

Thankfully, my hair is holding up.

Been using the Gillette Quattro on the noggin for about 20 yrs. use no.3 trim setting on my goatee. Look a bit like a biker without the tats on the heid!  
Love it!

Don't gete wrong, a number 1 all over doesn't look bad, my head is a decent shape. I just have a wee bit of hair envy.

I've personally never seen the point of hair transplants.  I'm 57, my hair is grey, and it's thinning rapidly.  It's because I've lived a life, and I embrace it.  I've no problem with anyone else getting a transplant though, it's up to them what they spend their money on.

 

Rather than shave my head I still go to my barber for a short back and sides, as he's also my mate.  His late father first cut my hair in about 1968, so I've grown up with the family barbering business.

Aye, but there comes a time when you've  basically just got to  accept that nature has crushed your hopes of remaining the subject of  jealousy from  young baldies.    "Wow, he's got a great head of hair for his age"

 

 

There's always the  Hibernian Weave method though - as modelled by Thumb, Stokesy, Fletcher, Boyle etc

I love a good old thread slagging off McGowan, but there is a bit of me slightly envious of guys brave enough / rich enough to get a hair transplant :)

To date my favourite McGowan memory is getting him so wound up he couldn’t concentrate on the game as we beat Dundee 1-0 In 2016/17 season.

 

just shouting paaaaaaauuuuuuuulllll at him every time, and telling him he was dog muck. he also went for a tackle and missed 3 consecutive swipes in a matter of seconds, to the joy of section E.
 

It wasn’t long after a motherwell/hamilton player got in bother for making a gesture to the opposition and McGowan in typical Paul fashion made one behind his back, before storming straight off in a huff at full time. 
 

 

paaaaaauullll
