Bald is Beautiful.... It's True!!

Updated on November 3, 2009

A bald head on a man can be very attractive. I think that many, many women would agree.

Now I'm not knocking a thick head of hair, mind you. But baldness has it's finer points.

Why do I think baldness is attractive? I guess it has to do with some of the baldness alternatives: toupees and creative combing. Ewwww....

Seriously, it's just not a good look.

Bald men can emit confidence, self-assurance, and sexiness in a way that a guy with a toupee just can't. The bald man can embrace and even celebrate his baldness. It's the real him, take it or leave it.

I'll take it.

As far as I'm concerened, guys, go ahead and toss out the bad rug, un-comb the comb-over, and embrace your naked noggin!!


Avoid these looks

Michael Jordan: Tall. Talented. Strong. Sexy. Smart. Legend. Bald.

HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITES

Yul Brynner: The OG of baldness. I remember thinking this man was sexy when I wasn’t even sure what sexy was. Plus the guy was vertically challenged (you know, short ) Go figure.


Telly Savalas: Another sex symbol from years past. He caused quite a sensation in the 70’s with his detective TV show “Kojak”, sucking on a lollipop, and spouting the phrase “Who loves you, baby?”


Patrick Stewart: Captain Jean Luc Picard on “Star Trek, the Next Generation” Plus he has a British accent, making him even more appealing. Women from earth, outer space, and all points in between wanted to go warp speed on his Starship Enterprise.


Tyrese Gibson: This guy is multi-talented: He first appeared on the scene in the 90's as a model. He is also a singer,songwriter, actor, and hot, hot, hot.


Vin Diesel: Another multi-talented man. Actor, writer, director, producer. Oh my


Before and After....

Bad Rug Alert!!
Bad Rug Alert!!

Some men look better bald

Howie Mandel: Yes he is a sexy-looking man now. He used to wear a toupee,(remember the show   "St Elsewhere?) He went from goofy to gorgeous when he shared his shiny dome with us as the host of “ Deal or No Deal"

Bruce Willis: His hair was thinning when he first appeared in the 80's series "Moonlighting" with Cybil Shepard.. Over the years, the balder he got, the hotter he got..

Better with or without??? You decide

Hmmm... the hair does look a little suspicious in the shot on the right...

Andre Agassi..... From lovely locks to hairless head

The mullet had to go...
The mullet had to go...

Mr. Clean!!

And, lest we forget, our favorite bald man ever

That's right, he's old school sexy......




So men, please, embrace your follicly challenged existence. That hairless head or shaved scalp has a come-hither quality that you just can't buy.

Don't forget to ask your sweetie for a scalp massage!

Here's one for the guys

      elisabeth,

      too much! this could go on and on. maybe you could write about why men fear of going bald. having hair to the middle of my back sometimes causes a moment of wonder...

      good work! keep it going.

      The Man..! Telly Savalas..I was his personal bodyguard for a while in Rancho Mirage...I think he hired me because I was going bald...Super confident guy...he had a dry sense of humor and was a world class Bridge player...and yes, he attracted a lot of women...

      My wife agrees with your take on bald men...but then, she is prejudiced...Thanks, Larry

      I've started getting that bald patch since a couple of years .... and no i don't try to cover it up. But how does one go about getting the six-pack abs of the baldies you've showcased? :p

      this is a great article. My husband is follicly-challenged and he always says that bald will be "in" someday. Thanks for sharing.

      plus it sounds as if he feels good about his baldness, and that makes all the difference!

      True, Kartika. A person can carry off the bald-look with the right attitude and look great
