Bald in Arkansas

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has an article about balding and head-shaving in the region. It ranges far and wide, but in general is about the mainstreaming of the bald-by-choice look.
By Design, the styling salon Marion visits, in the downtown Metropolitan National Bank Building, gets about 70 percent of its patrons from the male population, and about half of those males are balding. "They don’t try to camouflage it like they used to," says Susan Conde, a By Design hairdresser. "They have a different attitude; they just go with it. We don’t see the bad comb-overs and we rarely see a toupee. We probably have two customers that wear those."
It's a pretty positive article, and a decent read.
