Q: Do women like baldheaded men? A bald head looks like a comfortable "haircut", but before I shave my hair off I would like to hear your opinion on whether or not women like bald heads on men.
A: For every woman who loves a man with a shaved head, I can show you another one who thinks it’s a turn-off. Of course, the reverse is also true. With any hairstyle, there will be those who like it and those who don’t. This is why it’s a bad idea to try and select a style based on what you think will please others.
It’s better if you choose a style because YOU like it. If you choose a look that makes you happy, you’ll take more of an interest in the way it’s cared for. Taking more of an interest in the way your look is tended will help you look your best which will make you more confident. And we all know that confidence is the sexiest attribute a man can have.
If you’re thinking of going for a shaved look, here are some steps to take: First, check your scalp for overall shape. Check for bumps and protrusions and ridges in the skull that might stand out once you’ve gotten down to the skin. A misshapen head can ruin the effect of a bald scalp.
Next, shorten the hair gradually. Depending on the texture of your hair, the look of your head may change dramatically as you go shorter and shorter. (See the above paragraph.) By going shorter in increments, you can sometimes catch potential problems before they become apparent and can stay with a shorter hairstyle to hide a problem head shape. If you start out buzzing the head to a zero with the clippers, you really have no choice but to complete the job, no matter what you find.
Three: take good care of your scalp. Treat it like you would your face, with cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen to protect the skin and prevent damage. Healthy skin on a bald head makes a better impression than sunburn and acne blemishes.
So, my opinion on whether women like men with bald heads is yes AND no. It is also my opinion that what you like is much more important.
