My beard is solid white, and has been for years. So if I grow a beard, I look like Santa. If I do a go tee, I look like colonel Sanders, so thats out too. After my throat cancer in 2012, my hair is mostly bold in the back and front too, so all I can do is keep it very short, but hey I have been cancer free since Jan 2013. I favor the Jean-Luc Picard look, but Im fat, ha ha. IMO bald men look wierd with a beard.
