Baldness less of an issue for the appeal of older men

A new report has suggested that middle aged men are staying attractive for much longer, with stigmas being lifted from grey hair and bald heads.

Research has suggested that men are able to remain very attractive to women up to the age of 55. This is compared to 30 years ago when men would start to lose their appeal 10 years earlier, at the age of 45.

The study for Debenhams suggests that increased efforts to dress well and keep fit are helping older men to turn heads. The department store conducted a survey of around 1,000 female shoppers between the ages of 18-65.

These findings may have been influences by older stars such as George Clooney and Piers Brosnan, who are 49, and 57 respectively. Leading men such as Jason Statham and Vin Diesel are also famed for their hairless look, and this may have influenced these new findings.

“Older men are now remaining more attractive to women for longer than ever before. They are increasingly seen as eligible, prospective partners rather than old bores with little energy left to catch the female eye” said Ruth Attridge, who is a spokeswoman for Debenhams.

Mrs Attridge quipped that “it's great news for George Clooney and Brad Pitt, but might not make that much difference to Bruce Forsyth.”

This is perhaps good news for a large number of men. A recent study has revealed that hair loss is one of the main issues that concern older men. The survey of around 2,000 men revealed that only going grey worried men more than baldness.

This is perhaps understandable, considering that a large number of men will experience hair loss in their lives. It is believed that 1 in every 2 men will suffer from male pattern baldness as they get older. Anybody who is concerned about hair loss and baldness are advised to talk to a medical professional about any issues.
