    shaved-out hair?

    Mel saw a ghost explaining to Jim. What is shaved-out? It goes "bald" in tranlsation and I saw the ghost is bald. Is it another expression for "bald"? or no hair at all on the head and face?

    -ghost whisperer
    Jim- What did he look like?
    Mel- Um, shaved-out hair, dark eyes, and completely covered in tattoos

    Probably should be shaved off not shaved out.

    I like shaved-off hair, or better: shaved head.

    After reading this, I tried to hear the line again and again with great suspicion, but it definitely said "shaved-out hair" not "shave-off hair".
    What's wrong with the line? I hope I didn't mishear it.

    It seems to be a non-standard expression which only the script-writer can account for.

    I advise you to forget it.
