The UK’s baldest cities where more and more men are losing their luscious locks

The number of baldies is booming.

In a poll of 2,000 men, researchers found that those saying they were either already bald or going bald, had shot up to just over 40%.

Chaps from Liverpool are most in danger of baldness, with the number of those saying they were losing their locks soaring in the past five years.

But not everyone felt at risk of losing their hair – those from Leeds were most confident of keeping their barnet.

Jeff Finlay, 31, of Liverpool, said: “I started losing my hair when I was 24 and it’s pretty much all gone now.

“At first I was really stressed about going bald, but my barber suggested I shave it all off for a ‘Bruce Willis look’ and I’ve never been happier.”

A spokesman for male grooming experts Humanery, which carried out the study, said: “An incredible amount of those polled said they had noticed they were losing hair.

“Even those aged 18-24 said they had noticed hair loss over the last few years.”

Thomas Watson, of Humanery, added: “We want men to feel good, both inside and out – and not to panic about premature hair loss.”

Percentage of men who admitted they were either losing their hair or were already bald…

1 – Liverpool – 47%
2 – Southampton – 43%
3 – Newcastle – 42%
4 – Plymouth – 41%
5 – Sheffield – 37%
6 – Cardiff – 36%
7 – Manchester – 36%
8 – Birmingham – 35%
9 – Norwich – 35%
10 – Leeds – 34%

This comes after an expert shared what makes men more likely to suffer from male pattern baldness – and while baldness might not be preventable for everyone, there are certain factors that can make balding worse.

Chief pharmacist at Boots UK Marc Donovan told : "Male pattern hair loss is the most common, but there are other less common causes of hair loss in men, including stress, illness, cancer treatment or a mineral deficiency."

He also added that there are now a range of treatment options, "including shampoos and leave-in treatments that can help with the look and feel of your hair, adding body and volume".
