I was working with a firm owner recently, and we were exploring where his clients were really coming from. He has been growing, but he didn’t really have a website and he wasn’t really marketing.

Since my hairline isn’t receding and I don’t have a bald spot, I don’t have male pattern baldness. Instead I’ve got female pattern baldness (FPB), which means really thin hair on top. The sides are bushy as hell, but the top is thinner than an Olsen twin.
I first noticed my FPB in a photo back when I kept my hair buzzed. I loved the buzz cut. No bed head. No hat head. Whenever I did get bed and/or hat head, that was the universe telling me to cut my damn hippy hair. Read more
