Shaved Head Symbolism
Why was Tyler Durden head shaved? It symbolized him joining the ranks of his recruits.
Towards the end of the movie Tyler is no longer the centre of fight club, He is a leader in the shadows.
In the movie he started in the light with all the attention on him, and once the clubs started forming independently, his physical presence wasn’t needed.

If there’s one thing thats going to keep the audience intrigued throughout a 2 hour movie small intrigue details help, especially the casts appearance.
In this instance it’s his small line at the front, It sets him apart from others and symbolizes his leadership and influence within the fight club and Project Mayhem.
It’s a visual cue that reinforces his individuality and power within these underground movements.
It’s a deliberate departure from conventional styles and grooming standards, because as you know there’s nothing more conventional than the buzz cut.
Used by authorities and government officials across the world as a uniform look, so when you have the same hairline the adding of the small line makes all the difference.
Much like the division between Tyler Durden and the protagonist (the narrator), who are revealed to be two sides of the same personality.
The line could represent the line between their distinct identities, blurring and merging as they navigate their complex relationship.
