How Can Balding & Thinning Hair Affect Your Career?
Hair loss, also known as alopecia, affects millions every year. Over fifty percent of men and women will experience hair loss by the time they reach the age of 50. Does this have any impact on your or your career? We are going to talk about several ways that hair loss does impact your professional life.
Removes Your Confidence
When you are developing your professional career, having and displaying confidence is crucial. For many with hair loss, that feeling of self-confidence is lacking according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Hair loss can have adverse psychosocial consequences that can greatly affect us, like low self-esteem and even depression. Studies have also found that baldness in men adversely impacted a patient’s self-confidence, body image and self-esteem.
When you first meet someone, it’s your appearance that is first judged and if you have hair loss, many feel that plays a big role in how they are perceived. Some experts will go so far as to say that hair loss can reduce a man’s chance of advancing in their careers. This can be a real issue on interviews or when you’re trying to negotiate a deal.
The Perception of a Professional Look
Looking the role of a professional can help when you make or break a deal you hope it isn’t based on your hairstyle, but it may happen. Your appearance serves as a filter for a first impression so it’s worth noting that thinning hair, especially in women could be a factor. One study indicated that a person’s appearance can actually undermine their valuable skills, like communication and competence.
Affects Your Climb up the Corporate Ladder
Baldness affects 25 percent of men by the time they turn 30, and that number jumps to 66 percent by the time men reach the age of 60. There can be over 80 million people that experience baldness due to their genes. How your thinning hair affects your climb up the corporate ladder is the issue. When progressing your career is based on someone’s opinion, it can affect a person’s confidence. The lack of confidence could send the wrong impression which can impact your career.
