Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia –
A social experiment condunted by Alpecin, Germany”s No. 1 male haircare brand, has revealed that 2 out of 3 women on Paktor (online dating application) are more likely to swipe right to a man with a full head of hair.
In the two week experiment, two profiles of the same person were posted on the online dating site – except one was doctored to show him thinning on top and the other with a full head of hair. Both profiles stated that he was looking for love as a 28 year old medical doctor who loved animals, was an adventurous gym-goer and a budding culinary whiz.
The profile showing that a man with a full head of hair received 2,260 right swipes compared to 1,160 received for the image showing him with thinning and receding hair. This may come as a shock to many as being a doctor is widely seen as one of the most attractive jobs a man can have. This social experiment illustrates that in the world of online dating, a person’s photo is far more important than their job or personality profile.
