Study reveals bald men are seen as more dominant,tougher and more powerful


It's a problem that has always plagued men, but there is an upside to hair loss according to new research which has found bald men appear tougher and more powerful than others.
Guys with shaved heads are also seen as taller, stronger and having greater potential as leaders, researcher Albert Mannes has found.
The University of Pennsylvania lecturer, and a balding man himself, carried out three experiments to delve into how men who shaved their heads were perceived by others.
Action hero Bruce Willis is well-known for his bald head and tough-man style
Mannes told Time.com: 'I was surprised that perceptions of dominance and masculinity extended to concrete, physical characteristics such as height and strength.'
In the first experiment nearly 60 participants were asked to look at a series of photos of men who were similar in age and attire but with differing amounts of hair.
When the results were averaged, shaved men topped the ratings in terms of how powerful, influential and authoritative they looked, Time.com reported.

In the second study each man was shown twice - one with hair and once digitally balded. Not only were the bald men perceived as more dominant, but they were also viewed as nearly an inch taller and 13% stronger.
In the final experiment participants were given written and verbal descriptions - where shaved men again got the highest marks for masculinity.
 

Bald men have often scooped the roles for the dominant tough guy as The Fast and the Furious star Vin Diesel and police detective favourite Telly Savalas prove

But Mannes, whose study was published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, warned that while men with shaved heads topped the masculinity table, those with a full mane of hair were still voted more attractive.
'So, whatever a man gains in dominance directly by shaving his full head of hair will be offset to some degree by his diminished attractiveness' he continued.
'The shaved look is more attractive than the visibly balding look. So men suffering natural hair loss may enhance both their dominance and attractiveness by shaving.
'These men might better improve their well-being by finishing what Mother Nature has started.'
Those with thinning hair were advised to bite the bullet and shave off what remains to appear more masculine
If you are bald..please embrace it and do not feel bad ...wink!

Hi guys you have a fantastic site , i would just like to invite all your readers to look at my new site it is the new look for men
www.phukethairclinic.com MSP (Micro Scalp Pigmentation) is a highly advanced, modern hair loss treatment for a man that replicates actual shaven hair follicles on the scalp. The illusion is so realistic that you actually think you have hair, and so does everyone else. Get what style icons and celebrities are calling "The next male grooming must-have". Micro Scalp Pigmentation (MSP) is a permanent cosmetic that mimics the very short hairs of a closely shaved scalp. It is a new and innovative technique that offers an alternative styling option for men who do not want or are not candidates for hair transplant surgery.
MSP can be used for a variety of scalp conditions that include: genetic androgenic alopecia (AGA) otherwise known as male pattern balding (MPB), scarring alopecias from a variety of autoimmune diseases of the scalp (e.g. alopecia areata, alopecia totalis), and scarring from neurosurgical procedures or burns. It is also used to manage the unnatural appearance that is associated with outdated hair transplant procedures. This is a non-surgical procedure carried out by experienced hair restoration surgeons and qualified staff. We offer the option to have the procedure performed under local anesthesia.
MSP is a great adjunct to hair transplant surgery by creating a thicker look to the transplanted area. Today’s hair transplant surgery can create a completely natural appearance using your own hair to provide fullness in thinning areas. This process adds to the look of fullness by reducing the contrast between your scalp and your hair color. It can also camouflage scars found on the scalp including those that form from ‘strip harvesting’.
