    Why do semi-balding men comb whats left of their hair over the baldness?

    Do they think it looks better? More like a full head of hair? The part starts behind the ear and the few strands of hair gets dragged over like an old mop. What are they thinking?

    They dont want people to know they are bald lol.  Who knows they would be better off just shaving it.  My son went bald at 18 he has kept his head shaved since.  Nothing worse then a comb over or a bad hair piece lol

    It must be their desperate attempt to hide the bald spot!

    I have been asking that question forever. Me personally, if I started to bald, I would just shave everything off. I have no idea what they are thinking but it looks horribly bad.

      Alpha, has stated my thoughts.  It just looks bad when they comb like this.  Just accept it, shave and you will probably look just as handsome!

    They're all trying to be Donald Trump.   I wish these "comb-over" men realized how totally disgusting, stupid and unattractive a comb-over is.  It's grotesque.  I can't even look a comb-over guy in the face........and you ALWAYS see people laughing, whispering behind the guy's back....just making fun of these guys......
    Once and for all...MEN:   If you are "going bald" up and DEAL WITH IT.  just get a nice haircut or better yet...shave your entire head.  That's popular, fashionable and looks MUCH better than comb-overs or GOD FORBID, a bad looking "rug!!!"    I don't know which is worse!
    Apparently you are not aware that many women like "bald".....or are attracted to receding hairlines......or shaved heads.    Whatever, dude, the comb-over HAS to go!!.

    Probably it's just force of habit. Sometimes when a person loses a limb they still in their mind think it's still there, and maybe that's what's happening with these hairless wonders. Here's a hub that really explores this subject - … f-no-where  Keep on hubbing  smile

    I think it is because they are embarrassed, awful to say it but I think it's as simple as that. Most men would like a full head of hair and a slim waist, most men have neither.

    They comb the few strands of hair over their balding heads.....
    Obviously because they can...not the most attractive look you see..but perhaps they feel differently..great question..I hope one of them shares their thoughts...hmm
