Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have found out that bald men have a lot more going for them despite the lack of hair. Men usually fear hair loss when they age but it would seem to be a good thing after all.

The study found that people do view bald men slightly less attractive than their haired counterparts. However, the positive traits that were perceived outweigh the cons after all.

Researchers from the university conducted three different experiments which involved participants rating photos and descriptions of bald men. There were also different traits that acted as factors for the study.

Dr. Frank Muscarella told Mail Online that he hypothesized that the male pattern baldness trait evolve because it signaled "non-threatening dominance. The participants in the study that he led rated the photos and descriptions in different scales which included social status, aggressiveness, honesty, maturity and more. Bald men were rated more in the positive areas compared to men with hair.

"It could be speculated that although the characteristic of baldness decreases a man's perceived physical attractiveness, it increases his perceived social dominance," said Muscarella. "There is a large body of literature that shows that although women like physically attractive men, they are also very attracted to signs of high social dominance."

Men with hair were preferred by the participants in terms of physical looks as bald men were generally perceived as older, USA Today reported. Another possible explanation for the added dominance in bald men is because shaving one's head is generally known as an expression.

In addition, the researchers found in their study that bald men generally do well in negotiations. Part of the explanation is because of the added dominance an air of confidence.

Being bald can be a choice for men but it can also be the work of inherited traits and genes. The added positive traits can immensely help in the overall appeal.
