A new study finds that men who shave their heads appear more masculine.
The study conducted by Alfred Mannes, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the shaved head club, was recently published in the Journal of Social Psychology and Personality Science.
Mannes asked his 60 participants to compare photos of men who were blessed with hair up top to men who were hair-challenged. The reviewers described the men who were bald as having characteristics that are high in “masculinity,” “strength,” “dominance,” and possessing “leadership” potential.
“The shaved look is more attractive than the visibly balding look,” Mannes told reporters. So men suffering natural hair loss may enhance both their dominance and attractiveness by shaving."
Mannes believes shaving your head is an act of “boldness” that can attract a substantial amount of attention from women.
