Hot gossip, who's hot and not, and those beauty secrets that you really need to look good!

Bald Is Beautiful!
Bald Is Beautiful!

Baldness is the complete lack of hair, or partial hair on your head. It can also be called thinning. It is a form of alopecia, but for the male it is much more common so its acceptable as the norm.

The majority of males do suffer with at least a slight loss of hair as they age, but it can start as early as their twenties.

A lot of men tend to have the 'thinning pattern' which means that they may still have hair on the back, sides or front of their head but the rest starts to fade over time until they are partially bald or totally bald.

Some even like to comb their last bit of hair over the top of their head as a 'comb over' but we won't go there!

Bald - But Is It Beautiful?

Every single woman in the world has a certain taste in men. Nobody is exactly alike. Whether you prefer dark haired guys, bald older men, or blond bombshells, our preference usually has a reason that we may not even realise.

For example, there has always been the idea that we actually feel attracted to people who have the same symmetrical shape to their face as we do. How strange is that? Not sure if its true though. My partner looked nothing like me, mind you we are divorced now!

As for guys being baldheaded, dark or blond, that romantic attachment is pretty easy to figure out. A blond girl normally goes for a dark guy, and vice versa.

So, where do bald headed guys fit into that equation?

First Of All Lets Look At The Bald Facts

  • Most balding guys are 95/% pattern balding.
  • A majority of men have a bald spot on the crown of their heads at an early age.
  • 25/% of men start balding at the age of 30!
  • There is a four in seven chance of inheriting the baldness gene.
  • Other reasons for baldness include, Trauma, poor nutrition and an unhealthy scalp problem.
  • Alopecia.

Do You Want To Look More Manly? Then Shave your Head Guys

A recent study by the Mail online states that if you want to look more manly and show your dominant side, then get that razor to your scalp and quick!

Guys with the bald look stand out from the crowd, and appear stronger, taller and just downright powerful!

From the University of Pennsylvania, a lecturer decided to do a study of bald men to see what the effect they would have on the general public.

Three tests were done. The first test was taken by 60 people looking at photos of guys with various stages of hair. Long hair, short hair, partially bald and fully bald.

The results were surprising. Bald guys were the clear winners with the spectators claiming that they were more powerful, influential and lots of authority. (

In the second test, the bald guys were shown in two photos. One with hair, and the other shaved. The study showed that not only did they look more professional and dominant they actually looked a few inches taller. Strange result. But it just goes to show the power of suggestion.

In the final study, the participants were given just a description, both verbal and written of the guys in question. In both results the baldy's came out top!

Shaved men were more masculine and, well, lets not beat around the bush here, totally Hot Hot Hot! lol!

But don't despair all you hairy guys, you are still tops out of the women vote all round, but for girls who like their men shiny and smooth they are seen as powerful and downright yummy!

Beautiful Buzzcut Beckam!

So, What Have We Learned?

Well it seems that the overall study showed some amazing results. Even ladies who love the hairy scary guys actually voted for the bald hunks for overall masculine yumminess!

It really all depends on what type of guy you usually go for. If its long hair or a total slap head, sorry, couldn't resist! Then each and every guy has its fan club.

The only thing ladies do not like, but only in younger men, is a guy who only has partial baldness. For example if you still have hair around the back of your head, but not the top or front then shave it off and darn quick! And please, do not, and I repeat, do not ever do a comb over! Ugh! Its revolting!

The best way to look yummy, powerful, taller, dominant and masculine is to GET THE RAZOR TO YOUR HEAD! Completely!

So the answer to the question Are Women Attracted To Bald Men?

Yes! Take a look at the photos and tell me you don't like them!

So What's Your Favorite?

Are you attracted to bald men?

      Self-confidence becomes extra important when shaving head. If you look uncertain and hide, you radiate negative energy and it appears that you are uncomfortable. Believe women usually are better to see things like that than men. Then there are nice looking men who look ridiculous with shaved heads. So even if you look good with hair, it can be a disaster, and even the opposite happens sometimes. Symmetry is the key I think. The combover hairstyle is a mystery why it still exists with some men. And many are intelligent and think they fool people with it. The only thing they cheat are themselves. Jesus!

      Thanks Sweden! I quite agree with you! and of course if someone has a good head of hair and is fat and not in good health they are not that attractive either, so its not just the bald head! lol!

      Five important things that shaved head should work attractive to women in my opinion.

      1) CONFIDENCE (is a must)

      2) physically fit (is almost a must)

      3) good looking headshape/face and colortone ( black and latinomen looks better with it) Pale skin can be a problem sometimes.

      4) Marked eyebrows and preferably beard or stubble

      5) Style

      Then u really look powerful, cool, masculine and attractive. Fat body and bad health doesnt work well with shaved head! You must have at least 1 and No. 2 and 3 imo for good results.

      But this does not matter alot if you do not have a good personality that matches up! Regards from sweden

      Thanks Yannick, I totally agree with you. I am with someone, but its pretty complicated. I sometimes wish I had left. I think looks are only a small part of a relationship, if you feel better on your own well that's great. Thanks again for commenting.

      Honestly and this advise applies to both men and women, after being single for so long, and talking to a few singles, lots of men and women who have life experience decide to stay single, break the social dependency, or the fear to be alone. I guess i always like to be alone because now at 45 i feel liberated, i don't have to fear that someone will cheat on me, lose my house due to separation, or getting dumped because the person i am with does not or as never loved me. Those things are things of the past, when you are alone live along, have a good social network go out with friends and have hobbies you don't need someone in your life all the time. Most people you meet have kids, this is a big change and for a man most of the time a change you don't even want to be part of.

      Lots of women today are very shallow, men are shallow too, and most people don't even know what they want, and yes lots of women won't go out with a bald guy, even if he shaves is head. But like i said living alone taking care of yourself, cooking, cleaning having your own place do what ever you want .... its far better then being in a failed relationship, with a person you don't even want to be with. my 2 cents

      Thanks for commenting Yannick, and so sorry to hear that. I believe most women go for personality, so maybe smile, be pleasant and considering, and women will come, thanks for reading.

      Hi Nell thanks for the article, sadly i live in Canada, Montreal, i thin a bit not much, mainly from stress, my experience comes from online dating ok i will admit not the best but to be honest 99% of women on there are very shallow, and yes they are not attracted by a balding man. I have been told a few times and also turned down in every possible way.

      I feel that lots of women in there 40 and 50 over estimate what they can get, or want too much...

      I have accepted that i thin and after 4 years of being single i feel amazing i got a condo, i learned to cook and develop a few new hobbies to occupy my time. I have no plans to meet a women, i guess soon to turn 45 its a great liberation to just not care about this anymore, not stress about anything.

      Not all men look good with a shaven head too, i hit the gym a lot 5 6 times per week so i guess i could get away with it, but chubby men no way, i am also Caucasian so a tan helps and a triangle face.

      I tried the hairloss drugs propecia, dutstiride and minoxidil and got very bad side effects, i am using saw palmetto pumpkin seed oil and peppermint oil lets see how things go its fairly cheap too and no sids so in 6 months.

      Bald Man defense vanity in women & why Baldness is a concern for balding men 4 months ago

      There is a deference between women being very concerned about their appearance and men being very concerned about their appearance. women know that males are programed by nature to be attracted to beauty and are turned on by shapeliness. The hair is a frame for the face. Just as you would not put a picture of something that is ugly in a beautiful frame so to you would not put a picture of something beautiful in an ugly frame.

      Beautiful hair highlights and magnifies the beauty of the face. The very presence of thick healthy looking hair draws the attention of male eyes and creates in the male a desire to look further.Hair then is the frame for the face and justifies women doing what ever they can to make their hair as beautiful as they can.

      Male eyes will take in the whole image. This is of course what justifies women's desire to do what ever she can to magnify her femininity in what ever ways she can. Her ability to attract males is heavily dependent upon her appearance which justifies her using every cosmetic product that enhances her femininity.

      On the other hand women are no where near as much turned on by the appearance of males. If women were turned on as much by beauty as males are then women would be turned on mostly to women for women are far more beautiful than men. This is natures way of ensuring that women would be attracted to males,and males would be attracted to women.

      This is why women can honestly say they find bald men attractive. Its not because baldness is attractive its because baldness doesn't matter to women because beauty is not what turns women on.This is what Nell Rose And Paula are trying to convey to balding men.Yes of coarse as Deep Think has written neither Rose nor Paula would go amongst the public with a balding head because a balding head would detract from their beauty which their femininity would surfer.

      What turns women on concerning men is character traits that Deep think has written about below.Therefor women are justified in their being very concerned about their appearance because appearance is very important to men and we men love them for it. This is not to say that men are only attracted by beauty.there are plenty of men that are not married to beauty queens but are married Femininity embraces more than beauty

      Women share at least one thing with God." For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, ... Truly, God does not see what man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, .... about the external appearance, but the Eternal considers the inner character.1 Samuel 16:7

      As it is with God so also it is with women.Just as God looks upon the inner man so to do women look upon the inner man. so to balding men Nell rose, Paula,Deep Think and, God are saying to you careless about your balding dome and more about your inner qualities, and you will find an ample supply of women who are attracted to you.

      However as Nell Rose has written while baldness is not a turn off to women the cause of baldness DHT is a threath to a balding man's health and that justifes a man's concern about his baldness not weather or not his baldness is making him unattractive to women.

      bald Man 4 months ago

      I am a 74 year old man who has been married twice and raised 4 daughters and one son. You ladies that have responded to my comments are only considering attractiveness. If attractiveness is the only issue with baldness than I would totally agree with you that bald people can be attractive in spite of baldness but baldness is hardly ever the cause of his attractiveness. That is to say that there are very few bald people who wouldn't be more attractive if they weren't bald.If hair wasn't so important in beauty why do women flaunt their hair and spend so much money and time on their hair?

      How can women say they find men who try to hide our hair loss repulsive and show men as being weak when women are all virtual cover up artist. Aren't most of women's cosmetics designed to hide some flaws. Are we to assume these women wearing make up are weak and in insecure?

      We men love the fact that women put on make up to make themselves even more attractive. Its part of femininity and we men love you for it. But since women go to great lengths to hide what they perceive to be their own disfigurement makes them unqualified to tell a man doing a comb over that he is weak.

      Would a woman tell a young girl who is balding to just get a short hair cut and that she shouldn't be to concerned about her loss of hair? and please spare me the usual speel " well its different with women Because females should be concerned with your appearance. What are men suppose to be ugly? does it make women more attractive if their standing next to a less attractive male?

      God bless you ladies your heart is in the right place.Your trying to make balding males feel better about themselves.I respect you for that

      But unfortunately it is what causes baldness that makes it the reason a balding person should not be considered vain. A balding person should be concerned with his baldness not because so much because he feels less attractive because he is bald but what other health issues are being caused by the same thing that is causing his baldness.

      So here is what I would say to a man who is showing concern over his hair loss if I were a woman."I understand how you feel about loosing your hair but as a woman I want to assure you that no real woman will reject you solely because of your baldness. We women understand that with men physical attractiveness is much more important than it is with us women. That is why we fuss with our appearance much more than you men do even to the point of being narcissistic because we know men desire it.

      However we women do not look so much upon the outer appearances as you men do.We look more on the inner man. We are looking for character traits such as compassion,empathy,self confidence generosity ,tenderness,thoughtfulness,courage, yes we want a strong man both physically and emotionally.We accept that no one man will have all these character traits but work on developing these character traits

      and practically all women will be attracted to you irregardless of you hair condition.

      That said you have a right to be concerned because of your hair loss not because of how it effects your appearance but because of what is causing your hair loss. I understand from my research that DHT a defective form of testosterone is not only the cause of why your loosing your hair but is also damaging your prostate gland,,gallbladder erectile dysfunction ability to develope strong muscles, and even could be causing cardiovascular problems. So for the state of your good health I would like to suggest that you start looking into supplements that can block DHT and who knows you might prevent most of the damage DHT can do to you and maybe you woill even get your hair back.

      For the health Deep Think, I totally agree with you. apart from the attraction thing, health comes first. Maybe you should write a hub about it?

      Deep Think 4 months ago

      Are we suppose to believe what women say concerning baldness in men? women accuse men of being vain if they are concerned about their hair loss.

      Well look what's calling the kettle black. Vainness is the very essence of feminity. Aren't women constantly obsessing over their appearance? Not a day goes by but what we baldies have to endure women promoting hair products to give their hair more body put and end to split end,add strength to the hair. And oh yes we have all seen the commercial where a woman with a full head of hair any bald man would give his eye teeth for crying "I want my hair back "just because if they part their hair with their fingers they can see a little scalp. And oh yes there is even a commercial where women say Its our turn to get their hair back. As if bald men have been getting their hair back.

      But we all should realize these women who try to encourage balding men to stop hiding it are just trying to make balding men feel better about themselves. And for this we can thank them for or can we? Baldness is not just a cosmetic problem. Baldness is caused by DHT which is a defective form of Testosterone. Testosterone effects every organ in the body not just hair. Just as DHT the defective form of Testosterone damages hair cause it to fall out and not be replaced so to does DHT effect adversely every organ in the body that free (the good form of Testosterone) effects. Therefor DHT effects negatively the heart, the liver, the brain, the kidneys, the muscles, the lungs in short all organs. this is why bald men die earlier and their are very few bald athletes in the Olympics. Contrary to popular belief bald men are not stronger than men with full memes of hair its just the opposite this is why there's hardly any bald men in the Olympics. the balsies have weaker muscels because of too much DHT the visible evidence of which is baldness.and oh yess sexual dysfunction is largely caused by DHT.

      Women of child bearing age often run their fingers through their date's hair. They are looking perhaps unconsciously for hair loss. They have to be concerned with insuring their baby have the best genes.They instinctively know that DHT is going to have an adverse effect upon their child.

      therefor baldness is an out ward sign of and inward problem. this is why women are unwittingly doing a disservice to men showing concerned over losing his hair when they try to encourage balding men to just accept it. If men are led to believe women are ok with his baldness he might pay no attention to the build of DHT thinking its no big deal. Oh yes it is a very big deal.Its life threatening!

      So the advice of the wise owl balding men should supplement their diets with supplements s that block DHT

      OK Nell....this calls for a comment from "The Effer!!" Poor Bald man~~he's all mixed up. Of course we women don't want to be bald. However, there are plenty of women who find all sorts of men attractive AND sexy~~even bald men.

      Besides, has he not noticed the huge number of guys who have a full head of hair that they shave on purpose? Why do you suppose they do this?

      Listen Bald man, I happen to like a man for who he is, how he treats others and I especially like men with a sense of humor. If he's bald, well, that's just fine.

      Change your happy and positive. No one will even notice if you're bald!

      OK Nell, my job is done! :) Hope you're doing well, girlfriend!

      Sorry to hear you think that (Bald man) and its not true. Simple as that. A man is more than the hair on his head. He could be skinny, ugly and spotty, but have a lovely head of hair! or as I said, be bald and gorgeous! I think this is more about you and your insecurities than about being bald. And I am sure you are not seeing the real you. I am sure there are many woman who find, or have found you attractive. its much more about personality where women are concerned. Make them laugh and thats half the battle of attraction over! lol! as for genetic illnesses, how many of us are totally healthy? I have a bad thyroid, had a major kidney op and still try to look nice. its all we can do.

      Bald Man 4 months ago

      Bald men do not believe what women say about being attracted to bald men. We know you girls are lying. Your just trying to make men feel better about themselves.And we thank you for the effort.

      but really girls, we see commercials all the time of women showing off their beautiful hair. women are constantly fussing about their hair. Is it getting brittle,does it have split ends? How to make it glossier ,thicker fuller. Well you got the picture women would have us to believe they find baldness attractive when they wouldn't walk out of the house looking the way bald men look . We don't believe you when you find even a little scalp showing on your own heads unacceptable that you find it sexy on a man.

      How can you think bald men are strong?Have you ever noticed that you hardly ever see a bald athlete in the Olympics? the reason is that what causes baldness is a defective form of the male hormone DHT which also causes among other things weak mussels,cardiovascular problems and erectile dysfunction.Also bald men have shorter life exspectancies Male athletes with thick manes of hair keep bald athletes from qualifying for the Olympics because males with thick heads of hair do not have nearly as much DHT which is the defective form of testosterone.

      this means that everything that testosterone does in the body is effected negatively when DHT becomes the dormant form of testosterone.

      therefor baldness is not just a cosmetic issue. It is a serious life threatening issue.The more free testosterone a man has the healthier he is. so the next time you see a young balding man please don't try to talk him out of being concerned by giving him a load of bull about how attractive he is. If he thinks women like it he might not do anything about the cause of his baldness. Baldness is an outward sign that something is wrong inside.In trying to find out why he is balding he might stumble upon some supplements designed to cut down on the amount of DHT he has in his body. Which could extend his life and make him more of the man he is suppose to be.
