Bald is beautiful, so the saying goes. How about thinning hair? As much as we may not want to admit it, looks matter. We judge and are judged by our appearance both professionally and socially. Yes, there are people in the world with the capability to look beyond outer beauty and into the beauty of our soul, but realistically that is not most of the people we come into contact with on a daily bases.

The science of beauty

Whether you’re a femele or a male, hair loss and thinning hair can make you feel less attractive. Beauty it seems is more than just in the eye of the beholder; it’s rooted in our DNA. In Survival of the Prettiest: The Science of Beauty Scientific, Harvard Medical School faculty member, practicing psychologist and author Nancy Etcoff, demonstrates that beauty is neither a learned behavior nor an invention of the fashion industry. Instead she argues that our ability to discern what is beautiful is rooted in our biology. How we perceive ourselves and how we think others perceive us impacts our self-esteem. Our hair is one of the first things people notice about us. We style it to make ourselves look more attractive and just like a lion’s mane is designed to attract a mate, our hair is a part of our sex appeal.
