Yes from a "general" point of view. However, that means little as one can easily find a girl that likes "bald" men.

If one just wants a "girl." Actually, woman, since probably most females under 25 don't want a "bald" man. If a man is pickier than that and wants an attractive woman or for example has a type such as Preppy that I suppose dislikes the shaved look, he's just hurt his chances significantly by letting himself go bald.

I'm just thankful we're not overthinking this.

What? Already done. Andre Agassi.

And there are plenty more. Dwayne Johnson. Howie Mandell. Vin Diesel. Jason Statham. Bruce Willis. LL Cool J. Samuel Jackson. Mark Strong. Chris Daughtry. And on and on and on.


Hell Chris grew his hair back at one point, and the fans didn't like it so he went back to a shaved head.

No way does he look better with hair. Nope nope nope.

It's always entertaining to watch a member of one sex categorically speak on behalf of the other sex.

Agassi was excluded due to his grungy hairstyle. I don't think anyone has seen LL Cool J with hair, and I really wasn't talking about black guys. I'll take Daughtry and Strong as valid examples that support your point. I didn't know the former had temporarily regrown his hair.

I think Michael Keaton types are more common. Where the original hair adds something good. (Since I don't actually obsess over other specific men's hair [unless we're talking about the subject], I hadn't noticed any sign of the claimed transplant, but a doctor online commented on it.) Good-looking face, in my opinion, certainly good enough to be Batman, but nothing great about it (on the whole or any individual feature). And, no, to that other woman, the shaved look as a private citizen does not normally open actors to more roles, at least not white actors who don't want to regularly play villains.

Re growing hair back, I suppose that is a reason some men put off getting hair transplants. False hope springs eternal, I say. If those two methods (or anything else) could regrow most hair, it would be all over forums such as this. It wouldn't surprise me if ability to regrow long-lost hair doesn't happen within any of our lifetimes.
I'm not sure if it was Joey Lawrence, but I went ahead and looked up his photos over the years. Totally disagree with you - he looks better with no hair.

As for false hope, you might want to spend some time gaining information instead of speaking in a knee-jerk fashion. The lasers have been PROVEN to regrow hair, but they haven't been out all that long and they tend to be expensive.

Latisse only began trials for hair growth very recently. If Latisse can grow eyelashes, then there is no reason to think it can't work on the head. In fact, Latisse users are warned not to let the product drip onto other areas of their faces because hair will grow where they don't want it. If you had the slightest idea how Latisse worked, you wouldn't dismiss it out of hand.

I am beginning to think you own a hair transplant business since you are dismissing newer methods and are so obsessed with transplants. You are also heavily invested in trying to talk bald men who are happy out of being happy.

Hair symbolizes youth, if your desire is to attract the younger females then you need to have hair whichever way possible.

One thing about hair is that comes down to 3 things, your mom's genes, food, and age.
