Well, I know what you mean. Late spring when the weather is getting much warmer and all summer-long is a great time to happen to see boys and guys of all ages with whitewalls, the clear obvious knowledge that they had the barbers or their dad to give them short haircuts, and that enjoy witnessing they shed a good amount of hair for that distinct summertime white around the ears and neck experience for males.
Seeing stark untanned whitewalls after a short haircut or military short buzzcut or smooth headshave is a pure pleasure to see.
However, for some guys they would wish for instant than the second they left the barbershop. For myself it reminds me of my tortured summer breaks as a child after school is let out. My brother and I would normally have two immediate weeks and a half of summer school for three or four days out of the week, and by the time it came to the end we normally had a good full week or more before the Fourth of July holiday, the time for our annual family camping trips, and also the time when my brother and I would suffer the "take it down to the wood" haircuts which was always shorn down to a mere nothing on our heads. It was mandatory each summer.
Dad would either take us to the barbers or he would use old clippers in the basement to shave our heads down to what would be a mere no guard blade that most would know it used today.
I really did hide my anger and experienced humiliation (especially for the barber balding experiences vs down in the basement haircuts). It was a sandpaper head for sure, and we stayed no guard clipper shaved until Labor Day weekend in which our school would start fall semester in a about a week to ten days, thus the start of some hair growth to prevent classmates from pestering me any more than some did when they saw me in the summer.
The bad part my brother and myself got those baldie shaves several days before we would ever leave for the camping trip as we almost always had to wait for our cousin to join us, who he himself had to finish his summer studies in another town. Thus we had to be shaved bald and run around town more days than if dad would've shaved us the day before or the day of the family vacation, so the least amount of people would see our summer bald crewcuts. Two or three times our cousin Marcus would even get shaved bald at our house by his uncle (my dad) depending on the situation---if his mom was not around to prevent the head shearing, or if our uncle happily let dad shave him down to the nubs. He always liked it, but then he never had to be shaved every two weeks and all during the summer.
Three buzz bald white-scalped boys sure was a sight to see, and I didn't want anyone to see my pale white scalp which looked exactly like the college kid in the video link provided below. Anyone else suffer through whitewall summer haircuts?
In the end, I guess a severe short haircut or shaven head to provide visible whitewalls distinguishes the brave among (or at least for me, the tolerant) all others, and you can surely spot a shaved bald white scalp among all others too!!!
See what I mean with these two German college-age guys, at video time 1:08, as one of these vacationing campers is seemingly ok with people noticing his plate white head but its a nice cool summertime head shave haircut. He probably even forgot about how white his head resulted from the recent head buzzing. It was never lost on me, and I hated seeing myself with pale white bald head.
As much as I hated it, frankly I find whitewalls and total untanned shaven head guys, like this kid in the video, eye-catching and an actual turn-on. Not sure why.

This board is designed to be a destination to discuss male haircuts, from buzzcuts, flattops, bald, and more!
By using this, you accept all liability for your posts and their contents. BuzzLife administration and Boardhost accept no liability whatsoever by posts, ideas, opinions, links to external sources, videos, to name a few among the vast amount of content that could be contained in said posts. Therefore, you post it, whatever it may be, you’re responsible for it. Enough said.
Photos, videos, and other content posted should involve men who appear to be of age. Any link/poster that sends images, videos, etc. of those who appear to be below acceptable age will be removed. This results in an instant ban for life
This is designed for male haircutting, and males should be the subject of the haircut. Females should not be the subject of the haircut in posts, photos, and discussions, however, females are free to join and discuss our common interests.
No sexual posts allowed. No political posts allowed.
In terms of common sense, do not post replies to such videos or photos saying things like “sexy handsome man without hair” or “better ####ing shave it next time” or any other suggestive or inappropriate comments. This only does many things. It makes the user remove the video due to being “creeped out” by said comments, look to see where the user found their video (and can see terms searched, such as headshaving, male haircut, and even links from this board). It only brings out a negative view of our community and makes us more noticeable, rather than keeping it quiet. Keeping it quiet is best, it allows us to continue sharing content without people starting to think “will I get creepy people send me stuff”. To sum it up, don’t be a creep on other people’s videos. Saying you look good such as “nice haircut” is acceptable; saying “you look sexy handsome with that new haircut :-*” is unacceptable. I cannot control what you post on other websites, but please keep your true comments to yourself, or as we often see, “This video has been removed by the user” will pop up. Please use proper judgment to keep the videos posted public for all to see and enjoy.
In addition, please try to do your best to provide reference to what content is being presented. The internet is wide, I understand that. But if you are going to post a YouTube link, write a quick thing next to the link (moptop shorn) or reference where you got an image from (i.e., post a link and the image) so we can see it easier if there is problem. Only goes to help us out more!
Be civil on the board. We’re all grown mature (hopefully) men. Let’s keep it mature and civil on here.
Be smart about what you post! If you use proper judgment, it will generally be fine. Just consider these rules before posting.
