I thought that was brilliant. Persis was far more stunning without hair than she was with it. It wouldn't have been so with most women...
Just watched TMP the other day and thought the same thing. If she had had hair it would have made the character average. By being bald she was unique and different and stood out.
It says a lot that most of TMP's promotional material over the years has focused firmly on Kirk, Spock and Ilia. Up to and including the soon-to-be-released standalone Blu Ray cover of the movie. Her look made a definite impact that was totally unique (and arguably remains so to this day).
Even I have to grant that the Bob Peak poster is iconic. Of course, Bob Peak was a brilliant comercial artist.
