It's more than a haircut


Good News for Balding Men!

Dec 27, 2013

Going bald is no fun.  We know this, you know this, everyone knows this.  It’s seen as unattractive, undesirable, and overall not a good look.  Well guess what fellas, there’s good news for you.  Recent studies have shown that men with shaved heads, even with a bald spot, are seen as manlier and more dominant, as well as taller and stronger!  Interstingly enough, removing hair from your head can actually make you appear taller.  What’s even more interesting, is that when compared side by side to men with a full head of hair, the results remained the same!  Meaning that men with a shaved head still appeared more dominant and "manly" than the men who had hair.  


The assumed reason for this phenomenon is that the men who are shaving their head are seen as taking charge of their life, and their appearance, rather than waiting around for nature to take it’s course.  It’s seen as assertive and attractive, especially opposed to balding men without shaved heads, who are seen as less attractive, and actually older.


So the moral of the story here is, if you’re starting to lose some of your hair and you’re worried about being bald, be proactive and make a change!  You’ll look better and likely feel more confident as well!
