Young guys find bald men 'sexier, more dominant' than men with hair

Young guys find bald men 'sexier, more dominant' than men with hair”

If you're stressing out about going bald, stop - your thinning hair might be doing you a favor.

A team at the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study entitled, "Shown Scalps and Perception of Male Dominance", which found that bald men are perceived to be more confident, more dominant and even taller, the Sacramento Bee reports.

They had to give each picture a judgement based on three categories - attractiveness, confidence and dominance - and bald men led the way across the board.

Ranked by attractiveness, bald men were found to be the most sexy, followed by men with thick hair, and then men with thinning hair.

Furthermore, bald men were perceived to be more successful, financially, and in business.

The study said: "Namely, the men were viewed as almost an inch taller and 13 percent stronger when pictured with shaved heads versus with hair".

The study authors added a caveat, "Because only their hair was altered in these photographs, other factors can not account for these differences".

"This may be because a shaved head is atypical or unusual, whereas attractiveness is correlated with what is prototypical or average", researchers wrote.

And perhaps you can thank silver foxes like Anderson Cooper, who helped to inspire men of all sorts to embrace their silver strands.

Men who are anxious about being bald or going bald have little to fear following a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania.

There's more bad news, however.

And while bald men were viewed on average four years older than men with hair, there were other pros to ditching the locks.

Still, if your hair is starting to thin, the researchers have a bold suggestion - toss out that Rogaine and just shave it all off.

Researchers said that while men spend billions every year trying to prevent or cure hair loss, they should instead go ahead and shave their head.

"These men might better improve their well-being by finishing what Mother Nature has started".
