Losing your hair is probably one of the biggest worries that any man will face during their lifetime, as I’m pretty certain that you just won’t know what to do about it when it happens to you.

There’s the combover/flyover option where you hope nobody really notices, or then there’s just the option to fully embrace it and go for it. Either one is a pretty scary prospect, but if you’re on the fence about it at all then know this: science is officially saying that bald men are the smartest, coolest and most masculine of all the guys out there.
There are actually two studies that back these ideas up. The first was conducted by an American scientist named Alfred Mannes in 2012. He wanted to discover how men reacted to pictures of guys with shaved heads, so showed them a series of photos – the first was a man with a full head of hair and the second was the same man with a shaved head. The subjects decided that they saw the bald men as more dominant, bigger and stronger.
It was also discovered that bald men were seen as more intelligent than their counterparts with hair too. Psychologist Ronald Henss of the University of Saarland performed a global survey of more than 20,000 people to ascertain this, deciding that bald men may have appeared older at first, but they were also seen as wiser and more intelligent too.
So basically that settles it, if you’re going bald you might as well just shave it all off straight away and stop hanging on to that little wisp of hair. People might think you’re older but they’re also gonna think you’re harder AND smarter. Might as well get those traits in whilst you can, rather than looking like a pathetic dude who can’t afford a hair transplant.
