Allure Daily Beauty Reporter: Is Going Bald Really Something to Fight?

Read this post on allure.com here.

It’s supposedly one of a man’s biggest fears: No, not getting married—going bald. But is a naked skull really something to dread? A new study from the Wharton School of Businesssuggests that men would do well to embrace the Jason Statham look.

The study shows that men are indeed judged by their hair—or lack thereof—but that the participants perceived men with shaved heads as more masculine, powerful, and confident than men with a full head of hair. They also saw hairless men as taller and stronger than their hairy counterparts. The only drawback: Men with shaved heads were also viewed as less attractive than their thick-haired brothers. (It should also be noted that the study showed pictures of men with completely shorn heads—i.e. those who took matters into their own hands and shaved it all off—not images of men who were going bald the slow way.)
