Do women find baldness attractive?
How attractive is baldness to women? That’s quite a question and considering that I am a guy and going steadily balder by the day. No, im not in favour of baldness. Every time I look at myself in the mirror at 6.30 am in the morning when I have more hair on my chin than on the top of my head I shake my head despairingly and turn away from my image losing as much self-esteem as beautiful locks.
But who am I to say? I’m only a man after all. The real answer lies in the deep and frightening jungle of a woman’s mind. This is where I will find the answer but I have to say after 20 years of marriage I am still on chapter 1 of the manual. If I am to get a clear idea of how women feel about baldness than it’s not my own feelings I should be aware of (I fear I have been brainwashed by the media and a barrage of George Clooney images), or my best mates latest theory. I have to hear what women think themselves – and the internet is full of really interesting stuff that is likely to make a man feel like a bald god overnight.
So lots take a look….
The difference between baldness and thinning hair
First of all let’s highlight the difference between thinning or receding hair and baldness. These are two different states of hair loss. The latter being the final state or a fashion statement. A recent study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science found that bald men who choose to go bald are perceived as more masculine, physically stronger and sometimes even taller!
I’m feeling better already…
A survey of women on the website nextavenue.org was also very positive towards loss of hair. The overall feeling found the issue of baldness fell between a spectrum of “not an issue” to “totally sexy”. There is no doubt in this modern age of the preening male that there is an expectation on the young modern male to pay attention to his looks but it is also very evident that for the majority of women physical appearance is secondary to personality and cleanliness.
Be proud of what you have and present it well
With this in mind a woman is likely to be more impressed with the fact that a man is looking after what he has. As opposed to hiding it away and presenting it well and wearing it with pride. Toupees, comb across techniques and wigs are a definite no-no. New ideas such as taking that courageous step with going bald and presenting well with treatments such as Scalp Micropigmentation are definitely in.
Women are turned on by confidence so a lot of all of this is finding confidence in who you are and what you look like. Make the most of your presentation. When you do you send the message that you are proud of who you are even when you are follically challenged. Go that one step further and join the fashion generation and you are going to be turning a few heads!
