Low hairlines are always more appealing and sexier =) Glad I found this Question and Answer article by respected Dr rassman and want to post it here.
Low Hairlines of Celebrities
October 4 2006, 1:32 pm PT | Posted in: Hairlines
Why do movie star’s like Ben Affleck have such low, obtrusive hairlines? I found this site all about balding movie stars. Moviestar.nu
I think that some of these celebrities wore wigs for certain movie roles (probably the makeup artists did them for the character they had to play), and the site is confusing hairpieces in movies and hairpieces in real life. Your thoughts?
What you see is often an illusion that is created by the actor (or even their stylists) through hair pieces, make up, or even good hair transplants. Taking what I had said about John Travolta or Matthew McConaughey in the past, it is evident that these men would not be the sex idols that they have become if their hairlines rode high on their face. Actually, I don’t know if Mr. Travolta is still a sex idol, but he certainly was considered one in the past.
There are actors that transcend this low hairline sexy paradigm, such as Paul Newman (see photo at right), but they developed their careers and their sexy images when their hairlines were low and they were able to establish their sexy image without fighting hairline recession. Unfortunately, our society is superficial and it is easier to project the correct first impression from the frontal look. So sexy is the childhood frontal hairline in a man with a lean face and body. It takes just a second for most people to know if a man looks sexy, and that look is always associated with a youthful childlike hairline in a young maturing body.
Many times, I have had the opportunity to put back the youthful hairlines on male models or soap opera stars who started to lose their youthful hairline and develop a mature (non-balding) hairline. For them, the youthful hairline is job security. They do not want, nor can they tolerate the normal mature hairline, which still looks good. However, our society tells us that the sexy man image is the young man’s look. I am sorry to say that these young men with their youthful hairlines are like young meat for the females who fantasize on their ability to lure such men into their bedrooms.
