    The body/face question was a good one. But lets make it tougher (maybe).

    Which is more: handsome face + bald vs. so-so face + full head of hair?

    I like a man with hair on his head but some bald men are hot, so the face and overall look would trump the nice head of hair.

    Caslon... you are something else with your questions..... and this one is easy.

    Bald and a good face. Who cares if the guy is bald?
    (although I've been told I don't have a clue since I have a full head of hair).

    I still say the person inside (intrinic factors) are the really important ones.icon_neutral.gif

    I can't stand bald, if given the choice. Hair shapes the face and frames a guy's whole look. Even a little bit of hair is better than completely shaved (in my book). Still, a good face is better than one that isn't so good.

    e.g. Ed Harris -vs- Jay Leno

    Give me that chisled jawline of Harris. I can deal with the absence of hair. icon_wink.gif

    I think any person who says it's what inside that counts should be taken outside and shot.

    Here's some info, redheadguy:

    "Male pattern is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead, known as "receding hairline". Receding hairlines are usually seen in males above the ages of 25.

    An additional bald patch may develop on top (vertex). The trigger for this type of baldness (called androgenetic alopecia) is DHT, a powerful sex hormone, body, and facial hair growth promoter that can adversely affect the hair on the head and prostate.[2]

    The mechanism by which DHT accomplishes this is not yet understood. In genetically-prone scalps, DHT initiates a process of follicular miniaturization. Through the process of follicular miniaturization, hair shaft width is progressively decreased until scalp hair resembles fragile vellus hair or "peach fuzz" or else becomes non-existent. Onset of hair loss sometimes begins as early as end of puberty, and is mostly genetically determined. Male pattern baldness is classified on the Hamilton-Norwood scale I-VII.

    It was previously believed that baldness was inherited. While there is some basis for this belief, both parents contribute to their offspring's likelihood of hair loss. Most likely, inheritance is technically "autosomal dominant with mixed penetrance"

    ...

    "There is no consensus regarding the details of the evolution of male pattern baldness. Most theories regard it as resulting from sexual selection.[citation needed] A number of other primate species also experience hair loss following puberty, and some primate species clearly use an enlarged forehead, created both anatomically and through strategies such as frontal balding, to convey increased status and maturity. The assertion that MPB is intended to convey a social message is supported by the fact that the distribution of androgen receptors in the scalp differs between men and women, and older women or women with high androgen levels often exhibit diffuse thinning of hair as opposed to male pattern baldness.

    One theory, advanced by Muscarella and Cunningham[citation needed], suggests baldness evolved in males through sexual selection as an enhanced signal of aging and social maturity, whereby aggression and risk-taking decrease and nurturing behaviours increase. This may have conveyed a male with enhanced social status but reduced physical threat, which could enhance ability to secure reproductive partners and raise offspring to adulthood."

    Guys w/ the short cut or shaved heads are HOT!!!!


    And lucky me I live in DC w/ lots of 'high & tight' military guys. *drool*


    Also, I have to say shorter or none is better since the hairs on my head are still deciding if they are going to turn gray or fall out. Love my job but the stress sometimes sucks! lol

    I'd have to say neither really matter. I've known guys that are bald/balding but were overall kinda disgusting. But then I've got a few customers that come into my store, that are bald/balding and I think they are totally hot because they keep in shape.

    So overall I'd go with a good head of hair and so so face, with a nice body, and a good personality.
