There are movie and tv actors who look just stunningly handsome either bald or not. The actor who played Captain Picard on Star Trek TNG pulled baldness off very well.There is a younger black actor on the tv series CSI who is really handsome who prefers the shaved head look. It appears that in general it's mainly young (underage) teen girls who prefer younger men with a thatch of luxurious hair in the latest style.
What we look like on the outside can determine (to an extent) the shape of our career, what kind of people we associate with, who we marry, and how socially successful we are in general.
People draw inferences about someone else’s personality based on appearance all the time.
Overall, being bald, or not, made a big difference in how men were perceived.
(The researchers also looked at the race of the men—African American or Caucasian—but found that it didn’t make a difference.) But what if the men who were bald or had shaved heads were naturally more dominant (the same qualities that led them to baldness also may have led them to be more dominant)?
Anyone who has ever had any kind of interaction with anyone will tell you that being beautiful or handsome opens doors.
Numerous studies have documented the tendency of people to form an overall impression about something, and subsequently base their evaluation of other aspects relevant to that on their initially-formed impression (e.g.
that guy/girl has a great physique, he/she must also be really confident/hardworking/happy, etc.).
Research has found that physically attractive people are judged to be more musically competent, and that they receive more favorable treatment by juries, are perceived as less deceptive, and are regarded as being more successful in general Traditionally, baldness—or the notable lack of a luscious head of hair—has been associated with undesirable characteristics (weakness, impotence, etc.), whereas a thick flowing mane has been tied to traits like strength and virility.
Grown women in general are more interested in your good character, your personality, intelligence, sense of humor, general health/fitness, and your other good qualities, than in whether you are bald or not. I think it's more about the confidence you project by embracing something fully, rather than appearing to be failing at keeping your hair, etc.
I started losing my hair when I was a junior in HS. However, being both bald and muscular, I notice peeps automatically think I'm a meathead. In fact, since some guys with a full head of hair decide to shave it all to have that look, nobody can even know for sure if thinning hair was your problem in the first place.
The message from this research seems clear: If you are going bald, embrace it. Some men are just damned good-looking whether they are bald or not, or young or not.
