Prince William's Shaved Head Is Dividing Internet, Photos | Time

Quote
While plenty of people have been busy paying attention to Meghan Markle?s artfully mussed low chignon, another royal?s new hairstyle ? or rather, the lack thereof ? made its debut. Prince William showed off what appeared to be a freshly shorn, very closely cropped haircut during an appearance at the Evelina London Children?s Hospital.

As might be expected, the Internet had all of the feelings about the Duke of Cambridge?s new haircut and took to Twitter to discuss the style?s most riveting aspects, including takes on the seeming shave, which many found to be his most flattering look yet.

Fans urge Duke of Cambridge to grow a beard | Daily Mail Online

Quote
He caused a stir by debuting a newly-shorn head during an engagement this week.

And now royal-watchers are urging the Duke of Cambridge to complete his new look by growing a bushy beard.

People have taken to Twitter to call for William, 35, to follow in his brother's footsteps and sport some facial fuzz to distract attention from his hairless head.

The third-in-line to the throne, whose hairline has been receding for several years, decided to brave the shave ahead of his visit to the Evelina London Children's Hospital on Thursday.

I think its cool that William since his early 20's has embraced the fact of his thinning hair and going bald. More than 10 years of articles recommending, but no inside source of him trying to cover or remedy the crowning bald spot, says his character and behavior is that of a high self confident/esteem man, whilst men who seek remedies have a low self confidence/esteem.

Perhaps he should champion the bald club :)

What could he really do it is in his genetics. All the Windsor men go bald to a certain extent. People would have been questioning why he hadn't gone bald.

I don't actually think his shaving is better than his hair is. Maybe if he really shaved his head instead of the buzz cut.

It seems I was mistaken about the cost of the buzz cut. It wasn't 130 pounds but 180 pounds.  :eyes:

I?m trying to remember if I?ve ever yelled about Prince William?s bald dome. I?m trying to remember because, quite honestly, his baldness never really bugged me. I?ll criticize William all day long for being work-shy and petulant, but he can?t help his (lack of) hair situation. Some people feel strongly about how balding men should just give up the ghost and shave everything. I don?t really feel that way? I think if a bald man wants to keep ?the ring? of hair at the back, that?s fine. My late father was bald and he kept ?the ring? of hair and it suited him. He would have looked weird if he shaved everything off.

Why bring this up? Because William decided to shave off almost everything he had left. I don?t consider this a completely shaved head ? it?s like he got ?the ring? to a near-buzzcut. And ladies, I do not like it. He looks like a newly hatched chick. William debuted his new look on Thursday, when he made a trip to Evelina London Children?s Hospital. I wonder? do you think he was just changing things up and he?ll grown ?the ring? back. Charles has kept the ring and it suits him, I think. If anything, Charles was always awkward-looking in his youth and middle-age, but the grey hair and bald-top makes him look distinguished and handsome-for-an-older-guy.

Also fortunate that Juan Carlos is also bald(ing) LOL I just couldnt resist  :partaay: I agree, 180 pounds for a haircut is crazy, but Bill Clinton paid 250 bucks 20 yrs ago, so I guess its a bargain ?!?

The styling solutions Prince William could have adopted | Daily Mail Online

Quote
It was reported that the father-of-three to be paid ?180 to have his head shaved by his wife's hairdresser, Richard Ward, and later decided to get the number one buzz cut - a figure that has since been denied.

A royal source said last night that William actually cuts his hair himself most of the time.

They said laughingly: ?The Duke is very amused that anyone thinks he has enough hair to justify that kind of money. ?

It is thought that Joey Wheeler, who works under Mr Ward, trimmed his hair at his royal residence at Kensington Palace.

And while the royal plumped for a buzz cut to transform his changing locks, stylists at a celebrity hair salon say there are plenty of other options Prince William could have embraced.

William has always had a very out of touch & awkward sense of humor. It is sad really but I guess it goes along with people always saying yes & laughing at his dumb jokes so I guess he really can't help it.

I also hear that William normally just shaves his hair at home himself -seems like this visit from a hairdresser was a bit of a one off.

William doesn't shave his head. Oh wait he hides so much maybe we just haven't seen it.

What is there to suffer a sad syndrome for having an awkward sense of humor.

At least he has a sense of humor rather than none.

This fault finding whoever the leaker for  the very peanuts of GBP 180 is quite queer.

Cele|bitchy | Did Prince William shave his head to steal Harry & Meghan?s loved-up thunder?

Quote
Last Thursday, Prince William revealed his new haircut ? an almost completely bald dome. He didn?t shave everything off, he just did a very close buzzcut on his remaining hair. As I said, I?m not a fan ? some men can really pull off the bald head, and William is not one of them. It is interesting that William debuted his dome at nearly the same moment that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived in Cardiff though, right? Usually William and Harry space out their events so they won?t be competing for coverage.

Since they say ?keen,? you know it?s really coming from Poor Jason. Personally, I believe William and Kate are BOTH feeling a little bit anxious and thirsty these days. Look no further than their sudden blitz of activity before, during and after the engagement announcement. We rarely see that much of Kate, and there she was, doing event after event that week, smiling for the cameras and generally giving off a vibe of ?don?t forget about me!!?

IMO he looks better with the shorter hair. I doubt that he's going to go fully shaven though. Unsure if he should grow a beard or not, but IMO his face shape is clearly Spencer-Johnny/Charles.

Her spending on hair and clothes, is IMO ridiculous.  I was going to create a thread dedicated to her hair, but would rather focus on her devotion to her Charity work instead.  Oh.  So a few posts have been moved across to here :

Prince William shows off thicker hair at London event | Daily Mail Online

Quote
He made headlines when he debuted his newly-shorn head at an engagement last week.

But it appears Prince William might already be having second thoughts about his dramatic new look.

The Duke of Cambridge, 35, was spotted sporting longer and thicker hair on his sides at a public engagement today, in a sign he might let the style grow out slightly. 

Award-winning celebrity hairdresser Jason Collier said it is 'not surprising' William could be having regrets over his bold new look, explaining that buzzcuts are a deceptively high-maintenance style.
