How Men with Hair Loss Are Perceived by Others
Among people, there is a belief that bald people look older than they actually are. Also, people perceive bald people to be less adept in social skills and less successful in business.
A study from 2015 looks at men who had hair transplants and how they are perceived by society. The study aims to determine if the perception towards people who have had hair transplants change after the operation. The main criteria in question are the perceived age and perceived success.
The researchers used photos of men before and after getting a hair transplant. Then they found 122 participants through social media. The researchers then showed the participants before and after photos of people who had hair transplants. The study had 13 before and after images and plus 7 to serve as controls for the study. The researcher used metrics like
The participants rated each person on a scale from 0 to 100, and the scores over 50 were counted as a positive reaction.
The study demonstrated that men look younger and more attractive after getting hair transplantation. Not only that, participants found the after-transplant photos to be more approachable and successful. Other studies demonstrate that these two traits serve people very well at the workplace and in social settings.
All in all, the study demonstrated that undergoing hair transplantation improved people’s perception of hair transplant patients over four different metrics.
