Study Finds Bald Men More Manly

Vin Diesel and The Rock The Belgravia CentreA researcher from the University of Pennsylvania, Albert Mannes, has raised a few eyebrows with a report suggesting that bald men appear ‘tougher and more powerful’ than others. Hollywood hard men like Vin Diesel and Bruce Willis are cited of men conforming to this apparent stereotype.

In the first phase of the experiment, 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, and to rate them on a number of ‘masculine’ traits. When the results were averaged, men who had shaved their heads were ranked as the most powerful, influential and authoritative.

The second phase of the study showed volunteers pictures of the same men, one with hair and one digitally altered to make them appear hairless. Again, men in the totally bald pictures were perceived as being stronger, taller and more powerful than the same man with hair.

Going beyond the headline – the bald facts

On the face of it, men experiencing hair loss should be encouraged by these findings, but there are still a few caveats in Mannes’ study. For instance, men who with thinning hair did not rate anywhere near as “masculine” than their totally bald counterparts; Mannes suggested solution was for men with receding hairlines to simply shave off their remaining hair.

The other key finding in the report, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, was that men with a full head of hair were still rated as the most attractive.

Shave or regrow?

Dealing with hair loss on a personal basis is never as simple as scientific studies suggest. Male hair loss has long been linked with a fall in self-esteem and self-confidence, and studies such as Mannes do little to help men affected.

For many men, a receding hair line can be particularly traumatic and shaving whatever remains could be a step too far. Fortunately, it is often possible to regrow the hair that has been lost, rather than shedding that which remains.

New hair not no hair
