Well, first of all bad luck for losing the bet! For me, I had to have my hair shaved off due to an illness, so it was not exactly the same scenario. However, to be honest, I actually quite enjoyed being bald for a while. The good news is that the hair will grow back very quickly, so if you don't like it, you don't have to put up with it for long! You normally get lots of people trying to touch you on your head and rub it, which you may or may not like, and depending on where you are, you might need to start wearing hats to keep your head warm, or caps to stop your head getting sunburnt. Apart from this, you will find that you get used to having no hair very quickly once the initial novelty has worn off. So, look upon this as an opportunity to experience something you would never normally chose to do, and enjoy it!

You'll save money on shampoo! It should be easier to get ready in the morning. Honestly, you can just wear a hat most of the time and go about your daily life. Most people won't know the difference, unless you go somewhere where you need to take your hat off.
