Thousand Oaks, Calif. - A new study suggests people view bald men as more powerful than those with hair.

The study involved a test where people were showed two photos.  One photo was of a man with with hair; the other was the same man with hair digitally removed.

University of Pennsylvania researcher Albert Mannes says men with their hair digitally removed were perceived as stronger and taller than they were with hair.

Mannes says his own baldness inspired him to conduct the survey.
