When you are competing for jobs, it is inevitable that recruiters and employers will hold certain biases. As a candidate, falling foul of these prejudices is largely unavoidable. It is almost impossible to prove hiring discrimination unless it is explicitly stated during the interview or as a company statement.
Baldness is a physical feature that may cause a company to unfairly pass you over for a role or promotion. Appearances have always influenced how businesses recruit, regardless of what is expressed publically. When you have no recourse against discrimination due to baldness, there is the option of levelling the playing field.
Unfair Hiring Practices
It is worth noting that companies should not discriminate on the basis of physical appearance. However, there are two unspoken reasons that you may not get hired as a result of baldness. In customer facing roles, there is a perception that a particular aesthetic is more appealing. Employees who fit the stereotype of young and energetic may have an edge when it comes to winning those roles.
The other issue you may encounter is the idea that anyone who is balding must be of an older generation. A candidate could be 25 and still face unfair discrimination. The only way to combat this is by making physical improvements that dispel the idea that you are too old to take on the role.
