A scientific approach was used to evaluate their attractiveness beyond physical appearance.

So here is the list of the world’s top 10 bald men in 2023, along with some stories behind their distinctive bald look.

His ability to grow a full head of hair was demonstrated in the film Sorry to Bother You, in which he played a character with hair. He explained that it confuses people when his hair grows, which led him to adopt this look for nearly three decades. He revealed:

“I’m living a lie because I’m not bald at all. I shave my head every day.”

#9: Shaquille O’Neal with a score of 6.50

Better known as Shaq, he has maintained a bald appearance since his early NBA days, despite naturally growing hair. A funny incident in 2023 involved his hair on a TNT pregame show. When he debuted a new hairstyle, his co-hosts laughed at the uneven hairline.

Amid the banter, Shaq tried not to laugh and playfully threatened his barber over the wonky cut, leading to a hilarious tear-jerking moment. He joked:

“Bill, I’m going to kill you when I get home.”

#8: Shemar Moore with a score of 6.75

He humorously captioned the snap, explaining that his hat was to prevent his hair from getting wet. Moore then added in a joking tone that he barely has any hair, suggesting his comment was in jest. He wrote:

While Jordan’s lithe skills reflected his lean, hairless looks, the new generation of NBA players are following a different trend. In 2007, it was said that younger players were choosing to wear at least some hair and move away from the shiny scalps that once dominated the playing fields.

#5: Jeff Bezos with a score of 7.12

Bezos’ decision not to undergo a hair transplant has been a topic of debate, as the founder of Amazon and one of the richest people in the world. In 2021, Dr. John Watts, a dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon, noted the apparent progression of baldness in previous photos of the star, with a receding hairline yet thick hair on the sides.

Watts speculated about two possible options the entrepreneur may have considered: a hair patch or hair extension, or a combination of a hair patch and a hair transplant. Yet, as observed, Bezos still chose neither option.

#4: Samuel L. Jackson with a score of 7.31

Although the famous actor is known for his baldness, Jackson attributed his successes to his characters’ hairstyles in various roles. In Pulp Fiction, he sported a greasy Jheri curl over a big Afro, reflecting the character’s cool, pop culture-conscious demeanor. For Unbreakable as Elijah Price, his curly Afro symbolized the character’s anger and defiance.

Hairstylist Robert L. Stevenson, who has worked with the star, revealed the actor’s concerns about hair loss in 2014. Stevenson recalled:

“At one point he lost his hair and said, ‘If I just shaved it off, could we still create looks with wigs?’

In contrast to William’s self-deprecating humor, his brother Prince Harry was more critical in his memoir “Spare.” Harry described William’s hair loss as “alarming baldness” and noted that his brother’s resemblance to their late mother Diana “faded over time.”

William’s wife, Catherine, Princess of Wales, deals with his baldness with cute humor. This was revealed by Clara Amfo, the British radio presenter and “Strictly Come Dancing” participant, whom she met at Kensington Palace in 2020.

Amfo noted the couple’s playful approach, particularly when it came to William’s hair, full of loving laughter, saying, “Kate had no qualms about making fun of William’s hair situation.”

The public reacts to the results of The Sexiest Bald Man 2023.

On CBS’ “The Talk,” the hosts discussed the public’s divided opinions about Prince William being named the “Sexiest Bald Man in the World.” Natalie Morales pointed out that the winner isn’t completely bald, citing his “fuzz,” while Akbar Gbajabiamila noted that the prince still has hair on his sides.

The dialogue took a turn when Sheryl Underwood declared that Michael Jordan, who placed sixth, “will always be the sexiest man in the world for many of us,” a statement that received loud applause from the audience. Amanda Kloots revealed her own preference for Dave Bautista, even though he wasn’t in the top ten, and Morales recalled other famous bald men like Bruce Willis and John Travolta.

One notable reaction to the list came from a celebrity who made it into the top ten. In response to his number nine position, Shaquille O’Neal jokingly suggested on Instagram that he should be at number four.

This banter continued in the NBA on TNT, where Shaq and his co-hosts Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson Jr. laughed at his placement. One host humorously asked, “How much did you pay to get on this list?” proving their camaraderie.
