Is Bald Really Better?

Is Bald really better? Bald R Us is a website dedicated to those who celebrate their baldness (as opposed to shelling out money for Rogaine or Propecia). They esteem women who like their men bald. (Does hair really matter?) They share Hairy Horror Stories , give romantic tips (for the hairless), and allow viewers to ask questions to the Bald Guy. Their motto: "God made a few perfect heads and on the rest He put hair."
