Ever wonder if bald men are attractive to women? For those guys afraid to ditch their thinning locks for a smooth dome, we have some reasons why it might be time to stop combing things over and start grabbing a razor to go full Matt Lauer. 

Trust us, we know it’s not an easy task to do, however. As someone who has lost a fair amount of hair over the past three-to-five years and hasn’t completely taken the plunge to get rid of it all, going all in and committing to baldness can be tough. But, fear not, because those insecurities about how it’ll look to others will give you confidence with yourself.

According to AmericanHairLoss.org, two-thirds of men will experience hair loss by the age of 35, with nearly 85 percent having significantly thinner hair by the time they’re 50 years old, meaning baldness is more the rule than the exception. That’s important to understand to conquer any fear of accepting it — and to understand that it’s one of those unavoidable things that ladies have grown to accept.

That said, a study from OnlineDoctor found that bald men are attractive as hell to girls, with 54 percent of women in the U.S. and 41 percent in the U.K. saying it was sexy. Furthermore, the same study showed the traits girls valued the most when it comes to the opposite sex, with personality ranking first, followed by looks, education, profession and income.

Still not convinced that bald men are attractive to the opposite sex? Well, the OnlineDoctor study also showed that 96.7 percent of girls would date a guy will minor hair loss, and a whopping 76.3 percent would do the same for a guy with severe baldness. It’s just a matter of maintaining it and keeping things tight all around your head, fellas.

So, if you’re debating whether or not you hold on to those final few locks by combing them over, for every reason we gave above, it’s time to take the plunge and join the bald community. A-list celebs like Bruce Willis, Jason Statham and Kelly Slater, among others, have made it sexy to embrace the look, and it’s clear that the girls agree it’s something that shows confidence — so stop with denying it for yourself and show why bald men are attractive.
