Bald Men Are Now Considered Sexy
For a long period of time, baldness was a major contributor to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. As a result, men spend a lot of money hoping to reverse of stop the hair loss. However, newest findings indicate that going bald or shaving your hair completely may be the best thing to do!
According to Dr. Frank Muscarella from the Florida’s Barry University, the male participants in the study were rated in 4 different quadrants, that is, physical attractiveness, appeasement, aggressiveness, and social maturity ranging from honesty, intelligence, and social status. One group of participants scored photos of men who had hair whereas the others scored the same men but with their hair removed digitally.
The results showed that most people from the groups perceived bald men to be stronger, intelligent, and more honest. And, with some of the most handsome men in Hollywood being bold, for example, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson, it should come as no surprise that the study concluded that people find balder men sexier and more masculine.

Though this is far from the ideal situation for many, you can still feel and look good and be more confident about your appearance.
