Hair loss hot spot: Most bald men come from THIS country – and it might surprise you

Baldness is most common in the Czech Republic, with almost half these men going bald at 42.79 per cent.

The UK has the fifth highest count of smoothed-headed men, with 39.23 per cent of males losing their crowning glory.

Spain has the second highest number at 42.6 per cent. Germany is next with 41.2 per cent followed by France with 39.24 per cent, according to website Quora.

Unsurprisingly up next after the UK is the US, followed by Italy, Poland, Netherlands, Russia and Canada.

So it seems that Europeans are the most likely to go bald of all.

Ladies, if you can’t stand the thought of running your hands over your partner’s balding head then you should consider moving to China, where the least number of men go bald.

Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and South Korea also have low levels of male pattern baldness.

According to a study called Psychological Effect, Pathophysiology, and Management of Androgenetic Alopecia in Menm said: “Approximately 30 per cent of white men are affected by age 30, at least 50 per cent are affected by age 50, and 80% are affected by age 70.

“The incidence of androgenetic alopecia also varies with race: white men are more likely to develop baldness than are men of Asian, American Indian, and African heritage. Also, the extent of hair loss often is more extensive in white men than in men of the previously mentioned other ethnicities.”

However, this is not necessarily anything to get upset about.

Studies have shown that bald men on the whole are more successful than their hairier peers.

Three studies were led by Albert E Mannes in which 59 people were shown pictures of men with hair.

They were then shown pictures of the same men, but this time with their hair digitally removed so that they appeared bald.

The results were perhaps surprising – participants perceived the bald versions to be more dominant, masculine and confident with greater leadership.

The bald men were also thought to be taller and stronger than those with hair.

In fact, being bald added an extra inch to the men’s perceived height.

Mannes has highlighted that much research has suggested that these traits, in particular dominance, indicate how successful a person is likely to be.

The NHS says: “Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, affecting around half of all men by 50 years of age. It usually starts around the late twenties or early thirties and most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties.”
