Is your man (or maybe you are said man) on the way to get a haircut? Is it time to get that fresh fade? Maybe a classic short back and sides? Well maybe if your man is looking for that hair-spiration, then maybe you might want to shear...sorry share...this with him!
According to researcher, Albert Mannes, from the University of Pennsylvania, bald men not only look more dominant but also look successful and taller. A side note must be made that Mannes is rocking a killer and clean bald head as well, so we're not sure how much motivation there for him in this research.
At the same time, think about it, The Rock, Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson, Jason Statham heck even Einstein tried to get in on the look and they are pretty intimidating men.
Mannes research made conclusions through 3 points:
- Men with shaved heads were rated as more dominant
- Men who’s hair was digitally removed were perceived as more dominant, taller and stronger than their authentic selves
- Men experiencing natural hair loss may improve their interpersonal standing by shaving.
BUT, don't grab the clippers to give your man that sought after number 1 just yet as with most things there are swings and roundabouts with having a shinier head. Mannes research also found that they also look 4 years older than most men AND we were also found to be less attractive.
Soooooo definitely positives in there but also some negatives. So the question, do you want to be with The Rock or to look like Ryan Gosling....decisions decisions...
