Going bald is a brave decision. Hair loss is a sensitive issue for us men, it is not for nothing that many strong men get into real inner conflicts.

- Bald men appear an average of 2 cm taller than they are.
- Bald men appear more masculine and dominant to other people.
The US scientist Albert E. Mannes - incidentally a bald person himself - tested in 2012 in three experiments with 59 test subjects how people react to men with shaved heads. To do this, the researcher showed the participants photos.
Each photo was shown to the participants twice, on which the depicted man could be seen with and without hair.
The subjects perceived the men to be on average more dominant, taller and stronger with a bald head. The women love it too.
