There was a time when bald men were inferior about how they look. Those days are long gone now. It is about time baldness is also a prominent style. Thanks to celebrities like Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock, Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, etc, baldness has become a prominent sign of masculinity.
A study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania a few years ago proved that Bald men are indeed more dominant than those with hair. The research suggests that men who lose hair and have patches on their heads are less attractive and look weaker than men with bald heads.
However, clean-shaved bald men may not be necessarily attractive. The study also proves that men with hair, no matter how less dominant they might be than men with cleanly shaved heads, are indeed attractive. And, there is a good chance of bald men looking almost four years older than they actually are.
Well, that shouldn’t discourage men who would like to shave their heads while facing tremendous hair fall. Think about the world’s powerful men Jeff Bezos, Domenico Dolce, Micheal Jordan, etc, the impression they leave on you is stronger and their bald heads played a huge role in that. It is proven that clean shaved bald-headed men dominate any discussion and are hard to say no to.
Do you Really Need to Shave your Head?
Not necessarily. If you have perfect hair you can try different styles and make yourself more attractive. Baldness is not going to help you more than a decent hair would do. However, if you are facing a huge hair fall, then maybe you need to pick up the razor right away.
No matter what you do if you think your hair is no longer benign and strong and you are noticing gaps in your hair then a clean shave is the best option. Like mentioned earlier, men with patchy hair on their heads are least desirable and are very little dominating. If nature is treating you harshly by taking away your hair, then face it with a clean shaved bald head and show who is the boss.
Many men in masculine professions these days are preferring to shave their heads to become an intimidating version of themselves. Shaving your head shows that you are ready to embrace your vulnerabilities and do not care about how others perceive your looks. It builds a healthy positive attitude and gives you confidence in yourself. You can finally stop worrying about your hair loss and focus on other important matters at hand.
Now, this doesn’t mean patchy-haired men or those who are rocking baldness with their power donut hairstyle aren’t successful. But it is true that not everyone can look appealing with that style.
