    Bald men are sexier, more masculine, scientific study finds

    According to the American Hair Loss Association, two thirds of men will at least lose some hair by age 35, whilst by the age of 50, 85% will have experienced a significant amount of hair loss.

    wow, I'm surprised that it is that high...85%....I have not experienced any hair loss...at least that I have noticed. I mean I have hairs fall out...I sometimes pull out white ones...but they come back. And my grandfather on my mom's side was bald. Genetics is a strange thing sometimes.

    I usually like short hair better than long and shaved head is a pretty safe option.

    I have a full head of hair but have actually lost a lot. It helps if you start out life with a really thick head of hair. I personally think a full head of thick hair on an older man looks weird. Am I the only one who thinks a receding hair line is oh so masculine sexy? Bald spot on the crown...not so much. And that ring around the head with a few wisps of hair on top? Shave that shit. No one has ever rocked that look without looking geriatric.

    By certian age and stature yes, but bald (like long hair or beards) doesn't work for everyone.

    yeah if you're bald, "own it" and you'll be sexy as fuk. do not try to conceal it, comb it over, or do the hair club thing, never looks real and you're not fooling anybody.

    even if the guy has hair i really like the buzzed look, but i grew up in a military family/environment so i'm biased.

    Sadly not everyone can pull off the bald look. Sometimes it can be make ones forehead look bigger than it really is.

    Just as I was about to banish all traces of my apparently not-so-masculine wavy locks --

    -- I came across the following information, conveniently omitted from the article linked above:

    The study also suggests that bald men are seen as less attractive than their counterparts who have a thick head of hair.

    "Hair loss" is not the same as "baldness" after all. You can lose some small amount of hair and still be counted in that stat.

    LOL. Me too. I had the best hair all my life. Now, its thinning some ( ok, fuck, ALOT, on top) Good thing I'm tall, short people never notice.. LOL..
    i will likely succumb to a #2 or 3 zip cut. I used to shave my head every summer, when I had lotsā€¦ LOL.. icon_rolleyes.gif
    I don't want to be the old guy who is hanging onto the last remnants of good hair. No faking it for me. I can handle the inevitableā€¦ icon_mad.gif
