Baldness is a problem millions of men around the world are scared of. Unfortunately, it’s much more prevalent in males than in females. Some people go bald early in their lives, with balding coming naturally as you age. However, premature balding is nearly an epidemic, lowering the self-esteem and causing other problems for healthy men.
Many men believe that baldness rips your masculinity off. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Some men spend thousands to solve the problem, yet it’s safe to say that nothing’s 100% effective. But, there is a silver lining. According to science, bald men may actually be a lot smarter.
Can It Be True?
Dr. Frank Muzarkala from the Florida University recently headed a very interesting research. His study focused on the fact that women may actually prefer bald men. The participants were divided into 4 categories – aggression, calmness, social status, and physical attractiveness. Two groups of researchers looked at pictures of the men with hair and without.
Surprisingly, the study showed that the researchers found the bald men smarter and stronger. These men were considered more attractive and masculine. With some of Hollywood’s most sought-after men such as Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson being bald, it’s no wonder why bald men are considered so hot.
The research might may help most men feel much more confident. After all, associating with powerful men such as The Rock and Statham is all a man needs to get some confidence back. We’re way past wearing wigs. If you bald, just keep in mind that you’re probably be more intelligent than others. And smart is sexy these days, so your baldness shouldn’t be worrying.
Society is becoming more and more accepting of bald men. It wasn’t like that in the past, but times have changed. Dominant actors such as The Rock have made bald sexy and solved a huge problem for prematurely bald people.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, about 2/3 of American males will lost part of their hair by the age of 35. By age 50, more than half of them will love over 50% of their hair. While hair loss has been a sensitive topic for men so far, things are changing. No matter the reason for the hair loss, there’s no reason for men to lose their confidence because of it.
Bald men are increasingly considered smart and self-confident, and the latest research proves it. Embrace your baldness and know this – there’s nothing more challenging that a man with great self-confidence.
