The Professional and Social Implications of Hair Loss & Balding

For some guys going bald is no big deal. For others, the first sign of thinning hair or a receding hairline can shatter confidence and be a source of constant angst. What will women think? Will this shape how people see me? Might this affect me professionally?

The social and professional implications of going bald are not straightforward. Certainly, for some guys balding has no effect on general wellbeing. For others maintaining a mop enhances their physical appearance and sense of self.

Your wives and girlfriends might tell you it makes no difference (and for many of them it doesn’t), but there is some evidence that women prefer men with a good head of hair. One study discussed in The Telegraph reported that women were five times as likely to swipe right for a guy with a full mop compared to a guy who was balding or had a receding hairline. Your missus will love you regardless, but many of us need that extra edge!

When it comes to securing a job, it is often trickier for balding men as well. While some studies have shown that balding men earn more on average, many men attribute a lack of employability to baldness.

Us blokes can be sensitive and highly attuned to physical appearance. The impact going bald has on your social and professional life probably has as much to do with a loss of confidence as it does your physical appearance.

We all have flaws that we can’t change. Going bald is not one of them. If balding is bothering you, give our hair loss treatment program a go. You might just feel a whole lot better about yourself.
