Forget hair transplants, pills and hair regrowth serums. A University of Pennsylvania researcher has a better alternative for balding men: shave it all off.

In three experiments, researcher Albert Mannes, a lecturer at the Wharton School at U. Penn — and a balding man himself — found that guys with shaved heads are not only perceived by others as more manly and dominant than other men, but also taller, stronger and having greater potential as leaders.

Men with shaved heads and trimmed beards get me every time.

The last two guys I was interested in had this look....it's super attractive to me.

Of course, I also like handlebar moustaches so you should probably just ignore the majority of what I have to say

You had me at the shaved head and the beard, but handlebar mustaches? Ugh!

A shaved head is a lot more attractive than a guy clinging onto a few lingering hairs, but I still prefer hair.

I have been shaving my head for 7 years already. Love it. I also have a close crop beard.
love the low maintenance.

The look works for me, and I have no "sixes' in my head either !!

I know, it's weird. I really like 'vintage' style hair though, and that includes victory rolls in my hair and handlebar mustaches on my men. I've got a friend who has an amazing beard and I've been trying to talk him into growing out a small handlebar for a while now. Eventually he'll give in

^^Nah, I just shave it all off. I won't "bick" it.....but a #1 attatchment on the shaver is good. My hair has been steadily thinning. Once it was too thin in front to have a reasonably full looking hawk, or a full head of spikes, I just gave up. But it's alright. A shaved head suits me, my head doesn't have any flat spots lol. I always have some type of stubble since I can't use a regular razor on my face. I just use my head shaver with no attatchments to shave the ol' mug.

I like the victory rolls and the Veronica Lake waves.
