Baldness: what do your hair genetics say about you?
Our hair dictates a major portion of our appearance. No hair, full head of hair, thinning hair, curly hair, straight hair, dark hair, light hair – hair can change your look completely.
But can your hair change more about you than just your appearance? Like say, how you’re perceived by others? According to some new studies out of the University of Pennsylvania, it can.
These new studies researched the connection between the presence or absence of hair and how dominant individuals were perceived to be. Across the board, both men and women consistently rated bald men as more dominant than their hairier counterparts. Even going as far to perceive the men as stronger and taller.
Sound to be good to true? The same men and women who rated the bald men more dominant, taller, and stronger, also rater the bald men as less-attractive and older-looking overall. Darn. It seems balding men just can’t catch a break.
So, what have we learned? The presence or absence of hair greatly effects your appearance. It also effects how dominant and attractive others perceive you to be.
The take home? Ultimately, dominance and attractiveness are about being comfortable in one’s own skin. There are plenty of dominant full-haired men as well as plenty of attractive bald men. It’s all about your confidence.
