Slapheads have been given good reason to rejoice because nearly 90% of women find a bald man sexy according to the latest data from boffins – most of them eggheads
And Prince William, 41, was named as the sexiest hairless hunk, ahead of actors Vin Diesel and Jason Statham. A spokesman for Reboot, which carried out the poll of 2,000 women, said: “We carefully examined cranial shine factor, voice attractiveness and global search interest, to produce a whole new ranking of the world’s sexiest bald men.”
Actor Samuel L Jackson took the fourth spot, with super-rich Amazon boss Jeff Bezos coming in at fifth.
Follicly challenged shiny heads John Travolta, Bruce Willis and Yul Brynner didn’t even make the cut. Slaphead Steve Jones, 45, from Hastings, East Sussex, said: “I’ve been bald since I was in my early 30s and I must admit as soon as I lost my hair I suddenly became irresistible to the opposite sex.
“It wasn’t something I was expecting but it seems that women really do love a slaphead.”
The news comes after a report from the Star last year that three-quarters of men felt that their hair loss was barring them from finding love. Some 800 men were spoken to, with 73% claiming they had been more unlucky in love since losing their lids compared their to hirsute pals.
Dr Furqan Raja, specialist hair transplant surgeon for The Private Clinic of Harley Street, which commissioned the research, said: “Most men are already anxious around dating but hair loss forms a large part of this anxiety.
“Images portrayed on social media have raised unrealistic expectations and we find people comparing themselves to what they see as perfection.
“While some may think hair loss is not a significant issue, it can have a psychological impact on confidence, especially as physical features are one of the areas dates often notice first.
“But the good news is there are solutions to tackling baldness and ultimately maintaining good health of your hair to last longer.”
