The Truth About Hair Loss

It’s not attractive!

But there are shades of ugly. An honest balding man is more appealing than a liar pretending to have a full hairline. After the fakers, there are the balding men who can’t stop talking about their hair loss.

Last week, I attended a two-day branding conference where every balding man in the meeting made self-deprecating comments about their deprecating hairlines. Everything, work, family, even long commutes, was an excuse for their horseshoe hair. Forget the extra testosterone floating in your system—the MTA must be to blame!

The truth about hair loss is that there are plenty attractive bald men, just as there are “striking” noses and pretty overweight people. But few can seem appealing talking about their physical faults. If politics has taught us anything, it’s that ignorance looks good on everyone.
