Men's Biggest Beauty Fear Isn't Baldness . . .

Men's Biggest Beauty Fear Is . . .

Surprisingly, not balding. According to a recent study by market research firm Mintel, more than half the men polled said their biggest fear about their appearance is going grey. Hair loss or thinning actually came in second. (In case you're wondering, unwanted ear and nose hair came in third.) "Although grey hair is traditionally seen as a mark of distinction in men, the reality is many men are unhappy with their newfound gravitas," a spokesman from Mintel said. Seriously? Have you heard of George Clooney? Add a little salt 'n pepper seasoning and instant hotness. I wasn't sure I believed the answers so did a quick poll at Sugar HQ and baldness turned out to be number one. Perhaps that's because they know there's a supply of hair dye in the beauty cupboard . . . What scares your man the most? And what scares you?

I could bet it was balding. My boyfriend almost obsesses over it, and he tells me that his friends always complain about it too. His response to this would probably be "Well, at least they have hair!". Men :P

I could never consider gray-ness a part of how sexy someone is. I would be far more concerned about the man boobs, flat bums and pot bellies fellas.

I'm one of those girls that thinks gray hair is insanely sexy on a man, especially if he's still got a lot of hair and if it isn't too long. I hope my husband goes gray early - he says I'll drive him to it, anyway :P
