When I saw this story it put a smile on my face. Alfred Mannes of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business did a study on men with shaved heads. The paper was recently published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. Here’s what some of the findings from the report.Participants were asked to look at pictures of men of similar age, including some with shaved heads, and then rank them across many categories, including attractiveness, confidence and leadership. The study showed that the men with shaved heads were perceived as being as much as an inch taller, and stronger. The survey showed shaved men were estimated to bench press 13 percent more, on average. Oh, only if that was true! It wasn’t all good news for those with shaved heads, they were rated lower in attractiveness and also seen as being older.

So guys, if you are starting to lose your hair, make the jump and go chrome!
