A comb over or combover is a hairstyle worn by bald or balding men in which the hair on one side of the head is grown long and then combed over the bald area to minimize the display of baldness. Such is the interest in this hairstyle that a one-hour documentary –Comb Over – the Movie – has been made about it.At least be smart enough not to buzz the rest of your hair, to accent the length of the combover.Perhaps the most famous of all combovers.A classic case of the mismatched combover. Notice that the natural hair is gray, not brown.A nice aerial view.Wow. When you have to reach that far back to find some hair, you should probably just accept fate.Carl LevinThe British footballer Bobby Charlton.Always carry a comb in your pocket.That’s just sad. There isn’t enough hair to cover even a tiny fraction of his head.A variation of the combover (whereby baldness is concealed by long hairs combed in three separate directions) has a U.S. Patent 4,022,227 by Donald J. Smith and his father, Frank J. Smith, of Orlando, Florida.
