No need for transplants when you can just do this.

Why don't more men get hair transplants? I've heard they're very successful and I wouldn't imagine it would be any worse than wisdom teeth removal.
Probably because hetero males over the age of 20 or so wouldn't care about something like this. Baldness is an indication of high testosterone. Women are attracted to it. Non-hetero males or the prissy type probably care, but that's only a small percent market share for the "hair solutions" people. I can't imagine being so insecure as to care about this.

OP, use your brain.

1) HT's are expensive.

2) HT's vary greatly in effectiveness.

3) Each person has a finite amount of donor hair.

4) Prime reason men want / need hair is to attract a mate. Most people go bald past 30+ when they are probably already married or in a serious relationship, thus they wouldn't need it or worry about it too much.

All I can say is wow. In maybe 1984, the Tom Cruise look attracted women. In 2015, Vin Diesel attracts the hotties. People focused on haircuts must still be stuck in a time warp.

Um not quite.

Very very few men are attractive bald. Very few woman are attracted to bald men.

The good news for bald guys is the above is irrelevant because woman do not prioritize looks.

My guess is the guys who really become miserable over baldness would find something else to bother them to the point of obsession even if they had a full head of hair.

I know plenty of women of all ages who like bald dudes.

It's all in how they present themselves. Bald can be very sexy.

Compare that to the number of women who prefer hair.

The % is very low.

You miss the point. If randomly asked "guy with hair or bald guy?"

Women will err on the side of caution and say "guy with hair."

Because some guys don't go bald gracefully.

If you start showing women pictures of various men who are attractive and bald, they will frequently choose them over guys who simply "have hair."

Unless a man looks bad bald, hair transplantation is a bit desperate. No need for all that.

I guess any man can say the same about a woman who wears extensions,weaves, wigs, hair clips, etc?

I definitely think there's a double standard here.
