One In Ten Men Shaves His Head; 40% Of Women Find It Sexy.

Post  BladeRunner on Wed Aug 11, 2010 4:04 pm

"Totally bald by age 19, gracious and self-abnegating, Sir Patrick [Stewart] has long appreciated that his roles captivated so many fans: “It's always gratifying to me that this bald, middle-aged Englishman seems to connect with them.” Perhaps that’s his allure. In 1992, TV Guide voted him the Sexiest Man on Television.

Today, one in ten men actually shaves his head, and very few top it with a rug. Baldness, like glasses, has begun to carry its own sex appeal. Stewart probably deserves some credit for this.

Just 1 in 100 women believes a full head of hair is necessary before a man can be considered handsome, and among women 18 – 34, 1 in 2.78 describes a shaved head as "sexy looking."

Baldness has been virtually re-branded today as virile or manly. Just look at the soon-to-be-released über-action movie The Expendables: its cast, which consists of almost every major action star still living, includes Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, all of whom are balder than most babies."

As much as the pessimists would love to deny it, shaved heads in white men are way more accepted as they were years ago. Partly because newer generations are not afraid of very short haircuts or just simply shave to the bone.

I would love to see the demographics of the poll, because there is no secret that black culture does define a clean shaved head as a sign of manliness and virility

And by the way. One thing is a reported preference and other is reality.
I have seen many polls where the vast majority of women report that they don't like to be near a muscle head. Yet for some reason, heavy steroid users in my gym are chick magnets. I went to a bodybuilding contest two years ago with my girlfriend and I couldn't believe the dames these bald bodybuilders had. I don't believe they have it so hard.

Thanx SJ for resurrecting my golden gem from this past summer. A site like this wouldn't be here if the dreaded bald of yesteryear was not re-branded as something to be celebrated rather than shunned.

Can't imagine how my head would be if bald was not an accepted hair choice.
