SHOULD hairless men cover up or be bald as brass?
The Sun told yesterday that Britain comes sixth in the world slaphead league while the Czech Republic has more bare pates per shiny head of the population than any other country on Earth.
But if our position is down to British baldies trying desperate measures such as hats, comb-overs or implants, maybe they should just bare.
For despite worries about hair loss going back centuries, many people think it actually makes men sexier – just look at The Rock, Pep Guardiola or Bruce Willis.
A host of studies have found that bald men, like Mr Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jason Statham, look dominant, confident and attractive.
TV personality Saira Khan and former Strictly pro dancer Ola Jordan debate which looks sexier – full hair, or brazenly bare.
SAIRA has two children with her bald husband Steve Hyde, a businessman.
Steve’s head is as smooth as a baby’s bottom, and I absolutely love it.
Baldness screams masculinity and although I want a man who tends to his ear and nostril hair, I also want caveman rugged.
Steve was 32 when we got together, with wispy blond hair which was already receding. I was like, “Just shave it all off.”
The guys I’d dated in my 20s and 30s all had full hair but when it comes to the barnet, fellas, there is NO in between. Limp and straggly strands down the sides with a thinning patch on top is not a good look.
Steve was reluctant to brave the shave because, with a big nose and pale skin, he wasn’t hopeful he could carry it off.
However, when his hair went, in came an entirely new and sexy Steve with his sharp suits and smart polo neck jumpers. He started dressing like a man with no hair and it was hugely attractive.
Jason Statham is a hairless wonder and Steve was like, “Right, I’m going to be more like him”.
And boy, does he wear his lack of locks well.
Comedian Larry David once said, “Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair.
"But a confident bald man – there’s your diamond in the rough”. It’s true!
It’s also often said that bald men are more virile. The popular theory is that they have higher levels of the male hormone testosterone, which makes them more masculine and increases their sex drive. And who am I to disagree?
Steve’s mates tease him with the nickname Baldie, but for me, he is THE most masculine-looking of the group
The thought of being intimate with Steve with a full head of hair actually turns me right off. I love the fact that I don’t need to run my hands through gel, wax and hairspray.
And as for having to compete with a man over the hairdryer – no thanks, I couldn’t cope. Nor could I deal with having to watch him preening his locks with hair products.
There are exceptions to the bald head rule and some men don’t suit the Bic razor look.
Prince William, for example. He has that posh, floppy-haired look about him and doesn’t seem to have the confidence which shouts, “Here I am”, bald and all.
But maybe he could surprise us!
Steve’s mates tease him with the nickname Baldie, but for me, he is THE most masculine-looking of the group. He isn’t the most attractive, but in terms of sex appeal, Steve’s got it.
And when he walks into a room, I catch other women looking.
But ladies, please step aside, this baldie is all mine.
FORMER Strictly star Ola, 39, has a daughter with her hairy husband, fellow dancer James Jordan, 43.
A man with a full head of hair is a man that I love.
Long locks are youthful and men with hair have an air of coolness about them. As for a man who is completely bald – I am simply not a fan.
When Brad Pitt wore his hair long, I lapped it up, and as for Vin Diesel, if only he had some.
According to science, bald men are more attractive because being hairless makes them look more masculine.
But for me, a full mop of hair is what makes a real man.
They are comfortable in their own skin and don’t feel the need to prove their masculinity by removing every strand of their mane. They are much more sophisticated too.
Around 20 years ago, just after I married James, he started to grow his hair out while we were living in Hong Kong and I found it incredibly sexy.
I fancied him like mad.
He looked like the typical surfer boy, with sun-drenched highlights blowing in the wind.
I loved running my hands through his thick, curly hair and it was incredibly sexy
He never felt he had to make a fuss of his hair, he was just that cool guy.
I would look at him and think, “He is amazing”, and I felt lucky he was my husband.
I loved running my hands through his thick, curly hair and it was incredibly sexy.
It felt like a comfort blanket and I loved pulling on it, for fun.
But in April this year he had his hair cut short to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, which of course I supported, but now I just think his hair is boring.
I look at celebrities with long hair, like Chris Hemsworth in the movie Thor, and I will say to James, “Go on, grow it for me, please”.
But James said he has got no choice, because his hair is receding at the front and getting thinner.
So if he wanted to try treatments to grow it, I’d definitely support him.
Now that James’s hair is completely different, all I can do is look back at older pictures of him instead and pine for the good old hair days.
A man like Jason Momoa is my ideal man. Big muscles and lots of hair – that is the dream.
