Will future human beings have no hair?

it is forecasted that human hair is less and less useful and will disappear from human body in evolution. Some think if so people will be extremely ugly, but it's just as normal as the disappearance of human fur and we think those with fur are ugly while pithecanthropes thought we are terrible and a similar situation will occur in the future.

Eventually, maybe, if we survive the Putin/Trump ticket. It will not be in anyone's lifetime that is living NOW. It's a trillion dollar industry worldwide and capitalists won't allow it.

Yes, I think this evolutionary process is well advanced and I am therefore selling my shares in the Gillette Division of Procter & Gamble forthwith.

Side: Yes.

It depends how far in the future you're talking about, in 6 billion years I don't think we will still be mammals or humans in the first place, in 10,000 years we might have some kind of nanobiotechnology that looks like hair but actually has some crazy purpose, in 1000 years we may or may not have hair and we will already be a different species probably.

*it is forecasted that human hair is less and less useful and will disappear from human body in evolution.

Where have you seen this "forecasted"? You have to remember, natural selection is not working on Humans anymore the same way it would in nature as Humans have higher cognitive capacities and make all sorts of selection choices that run counter to what would be expected in other mammals. That is, we are partially artificially selecting and part natural selection (i.e. it is a mix of these selection factors--not the typical process).

Some think if so people will be extremely ugly, but it's just as normal as the disappearance of human fur and we think those with fur are ugly while pithecanthropes thought we are terrible and a similar situation will occur in the future.

The fact that it would likely be deemed "ugly" by society is strong reason to believe that we will not self-select sexual partners that are by and large approaching hairlessness in any significant numbers(of the population) for enough generations to make this shift occur.

Side: No.

If anything artificial hair replacement will become mainstream (same with plastic surgery and Botox).

Side: No.
