When you get your first haircut, do you want to wear it all day?
Or are you okay with just wearing a little bit?
A new study by the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill shows that a shaved head might actually make you happier.
The researchers analyzed data from more than 1.6 million participants in the Nurses’ Health Study II, a long-term, prospective, population-based study of health care workers in the U.S.
A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that men who shaved their heads reported higher levels of happiness, were less likely to get depressed, and reported fewer pain and distress.
The study also found that participants who shaved at least half their heads were more likely to report being less likely than those who did not shave to experience major pain or distress.
This, the researchers say, may be due to a “difference in facial anatomy.”
But why shaved heads?
The researchers say the research shows that there is a biological connection between the facial hair and our facial appearance.
A person’s appearance is shaped by hormones, like estrogen and testosterone.
Men who are naturally bald have lower levels of estrogen and lower levels than women.
This makes it easier for our facial hair to form, and it can also reduce the pressure on the skin.
The baldness also protects us from bacteria, which can be harmful to the environment.
This isn’t the first study to link facial hair with happiness.
A 2008 study published by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology looked at facial hair in older people and found that facial hair reduces levels of self-reported stress and anxiety.
The study also showed that facial baldness was associated with a decreased likelihood of depressive symptoms.
The new study is just the latest in a long line of studies on the connection between facial hair, happiness, and health.
In 2013, researchers at the University, University of Chicago, and Harvard University studied more than 4,000 people from a nationally representative sample of American adults and found significant correlations between facial hairstyles and well-being, depression, and physical health.
This was also the first national study to find that facial-hair-related well-feelings are positively correlated with a person’s mental health.
In 2014, a study in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry found that hair-care products were associated with lower levels, on average, of depression and other mental health disorders.
And in 2015, researchers from the University College London and the University Hospital of Ghent reported that facial shaving was linked to lower levels in depression, anxiety, and other depression.
Researchers at Yale University recently released a study showing that people who shaved off their facial hair reported lower levels at the beginning of a depressive episode and increased levels of positive mood following treatment.
This is a developing story.
