There’s nothing sexier than a head of thick, silky hair to run your hands through, right? Wrong.Of course, men like Brad Pitt, Harry Styles, and Chris Hemsworth are all very, very hot with equally amazing locks. But while a great head of hair is on many a woman’s dream man wish list, it’s definitely not a deal breaker considering the incredibly underrated population of very sexy — and very bald — men out there.We’ve even got the proof to back it up. But if that’s not enough for you, here’s some science:
According to a study published in the Journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science in 2012, society sees men with shaved heads as being more “manly.” Participants in the study repeatedly ranked cue-ball men higher for “masculinity, strength dominance and leadership potential.”
Guess that’s why Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, and The Rock are all action flick first picks. It also makes sense, then, how Bryan Cranston went from Malcolm in the Middle‘s dopey dad to everyone’s favorite meth manufacturer, Walter White, on Breaking Bad. After all, it does take some major cojones taking that Gillette to the head.
Need an extra boost of confidence? Thirsty for some eye candy to get you through the day? Check out our picks for the hottest clean-shaven heads in the biz.
Sexy Bald Men: Jason Statham
Jason Statham shaved his head after his hairline began to recede years ago. We doubt the action star misses the mop, though, considering that bald head of his scored Victoria Secret and Transformers hottie Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Oh, and let’s talk about that body…
Sexy Bald Men: LL Cool J
There’s a reason that LL Cool J stands for “Ladies Love Cool James.” It’s because of his beautiful bald head, duh! That no hair look is what makes us tune into NCIS: Los Angeles every week. The “Mama Said Knock You Out” rapper has been dazzling us with his talents and his babeness for over 30 years!
Sexy Bald Man: Vin Diesel
The man who plays Dominic Toretto in one of our favorite film franchises is a total smoke show — on and off set! We love everything about Vin Diesel. From the way he drives those cars to voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy to, of course, his sexy bald head, this guy is the total package!
Sexy Bald Men: Mark Strong
For Mark Strong, hair loss was not an easy ride, but he soon learned that when one door closes, another opens. “Certainly, there was a moment when I thought my life was effectively over. I couldn’t believe that I was going to have to walk ‘round for evermore without any hair on my head,” Mark said. “But then, very quickly, I got used to it and found that it was actually quite useful because you could use it for character. Villains in particular…” It doesn’t hurt that the look suits the Kingsman star very, very well!
Sexy Bald Men: The Rock
It’s safe to say The Rock is currently the most famous bald man in the world. We’ll choose to forget his Tooth Fairy days and enjoy his current awesomeness of starring in films like Jumanji, Skyscraper, and the upcoming Jungle Cruise.
Sexy Bald Men: Tyrese Gibson
Isn’t it crazy how many of the Fast & Furious boys are bald? We’re not complaining! Tyrese Gibson is not just a sexy smooth headed man but in addition to acting, he’s also a model, author, producer, and R&B artist. Talk about a quintuple threat!
Sexy Bald Men: Taye Diggs
We’ve been obsessed with Taye Diggs and his hot hairless head since his Rent days! Currently a series regular on The CW’s All American, Taye also appears on Muppets Now in a regular segment with Miss Piggy. Swoon!
Sexy Bald Men: Stanley Tucci
Stanley Tucci’s suave sexiness comes partially from the fact that he’s so comfortable in his skin. “It took me a long time to understand that you have to be serious about what you do, but you mustn’t take yourself seriously,” Stanley said. “It was much easier after I lost my hair, if you want to know the truth. I started to work constantly once I went bald, so I’m thinking of losing all the hair on my whole body. That’s a disgusting thought and I don’t know why I said that.” Not only is the Hunger Games star sexy but he’s funny too! And he makes a mean cocktail!
Sexy Bald Men: Patrick Stewart
We’re really into Patrick Stewart, and it’s not just because of his roles as powerful men like Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Professor X in X-Men. But the guy is good looking too! And fortunately, we’re not the only ones who think so. TV Guide named Patrick Television’s Sexiest Man in 1992. He’s definitely still got it.
Sexy Bald Men: Bruce Willis
It wouldn’t be a Hot Bald Guy article without Bruce Willis. Where ‘80s Bruce Willis was cute and like the boy next door, post-hair loss Bruce Willis is that guy glancing over his sunglasses at us as he cruises by top-down in the beating summer sun. Not that we’ve given it much thought or anything…
Sexy Bald Men: Pitbull
Pitbull is the ultimate charmer. It’s almost overwhelming! But it’s hard to decide what we prefer more: the rapper’s charm or his looks. If we’re factoring in how well he rocks the baldness, then it’s gotta be Mr. Worldwide’s looks. Dale!
Sexy Bald Men: Common
Common checks all the boxes: he’s a talented singer, awesome actor, incredible activist, and a very handsome bald man! The Academy Award winner has been dazzling us with his genius for many years now and we can’t wait to see all the things he does next.
Sexy Bald Men: Corey Stoll
We almost didn’t recognize Corey Stoll when he played Ernest Hemingway in 2011’s Midnight in Paris. That’s because he had hair! We definitely prefer him when he’s au naturel aka sporting that hot bald head. The Billions star’s next two films are some of the biggest ones of 2021: The Many Saints of Newark and West Side Story.
Sexy Bald Men: Tom Colicchio
Is there anything hotter than a man who can cook? Well, Tom Colicchio is not only sexy but he’s a celebrated chef too. Yummy! We just can’t get enough of the Top Chef judge and his dapper hairless head.
Sexy Bald Men: Christopher Meloni
Our prayers have been answered and Christopher Meloni is back on our TV screens as Detective Elliot Stabler! After leaving Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Christopher has returned to reprise his famous role on Law & Order: Organized Crime. We’re so happy to have him and his stylish bald head in our lives once again!
