Shaved heads come across as more honest as opposed to men wearing toupees who are literally hiding something. Does that mean women should shave their heads, too? Mannes was inspired by personal experience to research shaved heads. In the paper, titled Shorn Scalps and Perceptions of Male Dominance — published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, Mannes describes the following three experiments conducted by him. Perceptions related to dominance and masculinity seem to extend to physical characteristics such as height and strength. All volunteers read the exact same profile except for the description of his hair, which portrayed him as having thick brown hair, thinning brown hair or a shaved head.
Because a full head of hair is valued in our culture, the choice to voluntarily shave suggests that the person is secure enough not to need that trait, he said.
