only in places that hire people that are intimidating as executives
My first boss out of engineering school in ‘73 had a shaved head. It was the very first time I had encountered that and thought it extremely weird. We field engineers under his “leadership” called him “Chrome Dome” and it wasn’t a term of endearment.
