Only 13% of young women think that bald men look attractive

A new study has revealed that only 13% of women aged between 25-40 find bald men attractive.

The survey of 2,000 women carried out by also revealed that 7 out of 10 women have NEVER dated a bald man and almost half the women surveyed think that men become less attractive as they lose their hair.

Eva Proudman, clinical trichologist and Chair of the Institute of Trichologists says ‘I hold specialist hair loss clinics for men aged 18 – 30, who are usually not eligible for hair transplant surgery. When I ask them what they want to achieve, the most common reply is to “do everything possible to keep their hair” or “to stop it getting any worse.”

She believes that today’s celebrity culture has a big part to play: ‘With today’s world of social media and celebrities, everyone wants to look and feel their best. With our hair being our crowning glory, it’s not surprising that it has such strong views from everyone.’

The survey results further reveal that women living in London have higher expectations:

  • 1 in 5 London women would DUMP their partner if they went bald – compared with just 1% of women in the south west
  • More than 1 in 5 London women would NEVER date a bald man
  • Nearly 40% of London women strongly believe that men with well-styled hair look better than bald men – but only 20% of Scottish women agree, the lowest in our survey
  • At the same time, women in London prefer a well-hung man over a man with a full set of hair, with one-third of women voting in favour of a well-endowed partner
  • Nearly two-thirds of London women think that men become less attractive when they start to lose their hair – but it’s barely one-third among women in the West Midlands

Shar Fuller, Relationship Expert & Founder at the matchmaking platform Mai Tai thinks women need to be more open-minded if they are to find their perfect partner. She says ‘We all have one or two superficial deal-breakers because physical attraction isn’t something you can leave out of the love equation; we know a few single ladies who have said that the thought of their significant other losing their hair is a concern. Our message is still clear though – there is someone for everyone and genuine love is easy when you have modest expectations of your perfectly flawed partner. Lofty ideals have the power to wreck your future love life, so focus on more important attributes instead.’

Other highlights from the study include:

  • Fewer than 6 out of 10 women would definitely consider dating a bald man
  • 7% of women would BREAK UP with their partner if they suffered from hair loss
  • Nearly 60% of women believe that men with full head of hair look better than men who are bald
  • Almost half the women surveyed think that men become less attractive as they lose their hair
  • Half the women we surveyed would feel obliged to tell their partner if he was losing his hair
  • 1 in 5 women would encourage their partner to treat their hair loss if it became a problem
  • 1 in 4 women think that hair is key to a man’s attractiveness founder Kaan Aksoy says ‘The majority of our customers get hair transplants for their own self-esteem, not because they are trying to please others. However, it’s clear from these results that women do place importance on men having a good set of hair. Ultimately, men need to feel good about themselves and not worry about what others think.’
