Millions of people scour the internet for their soul mates every day. With the large number of people searching for true love online, it’s not unlikely for many singles to find their true “happily ever after” digitally.However, with the large pool of daters comes competition, and the necessity to brand oneself on their profile page. For that reason, online dating can be tricky and outright scary for those with insecurities—or hair loss.
For those worried about how their hair or lack thereof will come across in pictures, it’s time to do something about it. Leading hair restoration company Hair Club® (http://www.hairclub.com) found that male Hair Club members with online dating profiles received three times the amount of action once their profiles were updated with photos taken after their hair restoration.
Women perceived their “after” shots as: healthier, happier, sexier and significantly younger.

There are a lot of no-no’s when it comes to online dating profiles. And while there’s a laundry list of don’ts, the most vital do is: add pictures.
Experts agree the most important component of an online dating profile is the user’s photos. This shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise—as the saying goes, “a picture is worth 1,000 words.”
Hair Club understands that looking good translates into feeling good. Image is important and online dating profiles are no exception. That’s why Hair Club offers these three suggestions for men choosing winning profile pictures:
1. Post Your Pics
It seems obvious but according to the most popular dating sites, plenty of profiles are photo-less. One dating site revealed that profiles with photos are nine times more likely to get action. Nowadays dating sites are likely to eventually remove profiles without pictures and if they don’t, it’s safe to assume potential matches will skim right over them. Not positing a photo is a dead giveaway that you have something to hide and is reason enough to pass.
2. Stay Recent and Relevant
You might have had more hair than you do now (probably due to male pattern baldness) or a smaller waist in 2003 but your dream date doesn’t have a time machine. Update your pictures when you change your hairstyle or shed extra pounds. Paint a realistic picture of yourself for your matches—after all, the plan is to meet in person eventually.
3. Dwell on the Details
Women are detail driven. They will notice (and likely analyze) the direction of the hairs on your head, the shoes on your feet, or the hats you’re hiding behind. Make sure you pay attention to these details when you’re taking or selecting a photo for your profile. Take notice of what’s going on in the background of your picture—could anything be misconstrued?
It’s true, thinning hair could make you look older and less attractive than you really are, especially in a one dimensional photograph. Don’t let hair loss hold you back from finding love.
