A thick head of hair has long been associated with youthful vitality and vigor, but bald men have several reasons to be proud. A study has found that they are both more confident and stronger than their follicly-blessed counterparts.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, 66 percent of men lose their hair by the time they turn 35 and 85 percent will experience significant loss by the age 50. Serious hair loss is inevitable for most men.
Titled ‘Shorn Scalps and Perceptions of Male Dominance’ and led by Albert E. Mannes, the study found that bald men are considered by women to be more masculine, dominate and stronger — more confident! — compared to those with a full head of hair. It encourages men to embrace their baldness by shaving off whatever is left of their hair instead of hiding it with a toupee or comb-over.
Another study by The University of Pennsylvania arrived at a similar conclusion — bald men are perceived as more attractive, confident, and dominant — after giving male and female college students three major tests that asked them to rate images of men according to attractiveness, confidence and dominance.
Most men suffering from an advanced stage of hair loss find it difficult to accept baldness, possibly becoming depressed as a result. However, acceptance and shaving everything off shows that you’re comfortable and confident with yourself — a key to improving your interpersonal standing.
It’s not uncommon for females to pay attention to a man’s hair during a conversation, so rather than give them a funny comb-over to look at, let your uninteresting shaved head draw them to your amazing eyes. You might actually establish a rapport more quickly.
Just relinquish control and let that scalp shine. Many women love men with bald heads.
