​Prince William 'Laughs Off' Suggestions That He Paid £180 For New Haircut

​Prince William 'Laughs Off' Suggestions That He Paid £180 For New Haircut

You may have seen that Prince William's gone all Bruce Willis on us, having decided to embrace his baldness by shaving most of his hair off.

You also may have heard the rumours that he paid £180 ($250) for the new do, after reportedly seeking advice from Richard Ward - the long-time hairdresser of his wife, Kate.

However, turns out Wills thankfully isn't quite as much of the spendthrift that we thought, having apparently 'laughed off' suggestions that he'd pay so much money to sort out his thinning hair.

Rebecca English, Royal Correspondent for Daily Mail, said: "Prince William has laughed off suggestions he paid £180 to shave his thinning locks.

"'The Duke is very amused that anyone thinks he has enough hair to justify that kind of money!' a source told me. At least he has a sense of humour about it!"

She also said that he's normally a DIY guy when it comes to his mop, adding: "I also hear that William normally just shaves his hair at home himself - seems like this visit from a hairdresser was a bit of a one off."

We hope that's true, because if William did pay £180, he'd have spent well over 10 times what most blokes are used to forking out on their regular trim - which, of course, is just bloody daft.

But then on the flipside, it could've been a pretty good investment, as it actually turns out that people find bald men sexy.

That's been proven not only by the many who fancy Bruce Willis, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson or Jason Statham, but also by a recent study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania.

Participants in the study, both male and female, were asked to rate pictures of men according to their attractiveness, confidence and dominance.

In each category, bald men came out on top, with the hairstyle - or lack thereof - seen as appealing because the fellas had gone against the grain when it came to traditional norms associated with attractiveness and hair.

The study reported that choosing 'to dispense with one's hair is arguably a form of nonverbal behaviour, a form of expression which communicates information about the self otherwise difficult to observe'.

It also concluded that men will do better 'economically in negotiations', a theory that's backed up by the success of bald man Lex Luthor.

Though evil and Superman's nemesis, he was an incredibly successful businessman, despite his fictionality.
