Going bald can be a scary and frightening time for many men… but it doesn’t have to be!
In this article, I will cover the many perks that come with a chrome dome and why embracing the bald is a solid bet.
First, let’s look at the research. In 2012, a paper was written by Albert Mannes, a Wharton operations and information management lecturer, titled Shorn Scalps and Perceptions of Male Dominance. His research and experiments dive into what others think about men with bald heads. Mannes ran three experiments to test people’s perceptions and the results were surprising. He found that men with shaved heads were perceived as being more dominant with masculine features. Even physical features such as height and strength were perceived higher among bald men. This study goes to show that the bald look shouldn’t be something you have to do, but something you want to do.
The next perk of the chrome dome is the heightening of other features. Baldness highlights the other features of the face and body by taking attention away from the hair. This ends up creating an emphasis on the face and eyes which will help increase your attractiveness.
Now, when it comes to getting ready for work or a date, your time will be cut in half. You won’t have to deal with getting ready except for putting on your clothes and walking out of the door. Taking 20-30 minutes to get your hair looking right will become a thing of the past. On top of that, a chore you will never have to perform again is cleaning hair out of the shower drain.
Even though looks and convenience are important drivers, the economic side of the bald style is also valuable. The average price of a man’s haircut in the United States is $28 per cut. If you go to the hairdresser once every two months, or six times a year, you’ll be saving on average $168 a year. This is money you can spend to accentuate your other features. Some examples could be purchasing a beard shaving kit, a solid pair of clippers, or a razor.
These are just some of the many advantages that come along with a shiny dome. Once you decide to take this next step in your life, you’ll begin to realize all these benefits and understand how great being bald is.
