Well apparently being bald leads to being seen as more intelligent, successful & mature

Well over the last few years we have seen the ability to stop hair loss and being bald has always had a sort of stigma around it for young men especially. However a new study has told us a different story and apparently being bald is linked to having more intelligence, success, and masculinity.

In a study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science, Barry University Professor Dr Frank Muscarella asked participants to rate men on their perceived honesty, intelligence, and social status.

While speaking to the Daily Mail he said: "I speculated that male pattern baldness evolved as an appeasement signal and signalled benign, non-threatening dominance. There is a large body of literature that shows that although women like physically attractive men, they are also very attracted to signs of high social dominance."

And in even better news his findings were backed by another study from the University of Pennsylvania, which found bald men are often seen as more dominant and successful. "Men with shaved heads will fare better economically in negotiations," the study said. This study found the bald men are rated more attractive overall.

So there you go guys, going bald is not a bad thing at all!
