Bald May Not Be Beautiful, but it is Powerful

Most men are terrified of going bald. Maybe they should not be. A U-Penn Study found that bald men look more like leaders than men with hair. One thing is clear on “Bald is Beautiful Day”….don’t be ‘balding’ Either have hair or don’t. Balding was rated the worst look in all surveys.

A University of Pennsylvania study reveals that bald men appear tougher, taller, stronger, more powerful than others and are seen as having greater potential as leaders. Researcher Albert Mannes showed pictures of bald and balding men to study participants. He says, ”I was surprised that perceptions of dominance and masculinity extended to concrete, physical characteristics such as height and strength. So, whatever a man gains in dominance directly by shaving his full head of hair will be offset to some degree by his diminished attractiveness. The shaved look is more attractive than the visibly balding look. So men suffering natural hair loss may enhance both their dominance and attractiveness by shaving. These men might better improve their well-being by finishing what Mother Nature has started.”
