Whats the proper term for a person with a shaved head?
I’m not aware of a proper term. Terms that I’ve heard or read include: bald, bald-by-choice, shaved, smooth, hairless, skinhead, Mr. Clean, cue-balled, and smooth-skulled. Other terms exist; use what you are most comfortable with. Note, however, that “skinhead” properly refers to a subculture that got its start as a working-class movement in England in the 60’s, and is not really appropriate for the majority of people with shaved heads. Bald is probably the most proper term for anyone without hair. Return to the top of the page.
