We’ve all read those glib articles with polls on sex appeal and success versus the fullness of the male mane.
Publications like Star, Gawker, People, Radar and more put the receding hairlines of the most watched men under the microscope every day. Texas’ very own Oscar and Emmy winning star, Mathew McConaughey, was named People Magazine’s 2005 “Sexiest Man Alive.”
Well guess what? He suffers from hair loss too.
While McConaughey is coy about exactly what he did to regain his luscious locks, what is known is that he did not simply accept the onset of male pattern baldness. He sought medical treatment. And you can too.
With the help of specialists, these stars found permanent medical solutions to treat their hair loss, and got their lives back on track.
Get some inspiration and take a look at what these famous men did about their hair loss:
Dennis Miller really has done and continues to do it all. The 62-year-old comedian, TV political and sports personality, and actor, most recently in “Joe Dirt 2,” is unabashed about his hair transplant surgery. He claims transplanting 2,500 grafts kept his hair line.
Calum Best, Lindsay Lohan’s former boyfriend and Celebrity Big Brother housemate, started losing his hair when he was 20 years old. He told the UK’s “Daily Mail” that while losing his hair might be nature’s plan, it is “demoralizing.” He said, “For people in the public eye, their image is their career. You don’t see a lot of bald models or TV presenters. A simple procedure such a hair transplant can make an enormous difference to a man’s life.” Best, now 35, has had three surgical hair restoration procedures.
AJ McLean is that 38-year-old musician, singer, dancer, actor we all know as a Backstreet Boy. The band was on tour last year. Check out his Instagram before and after photos. He wrote, “Some girls get there [sic] boobs done some guys get abb implants all to make them happy! This was the one thing I did and I couldn’t be happier.” You can check out his hair in person on the 2016 Euro Cruise, set to sail around the Mediterranean Sea this May.
Gordon Ramsay, the celebrity chef and restaurant owner, has for years on American primetime television badgered lackluster restaurateurs and cooking contestants about dish presentation. Seems the soon to be 50-year-old applied that principle to his head. Britain’s 2008 “Sexiest Chef” underwent a surgical hair restoration procedure in 2010.
John Cleese, a beloved comedian, actor, film producer and director was 69 when he decided his loss of locks was no longer a laughing matter. In 2008 he explained to British television audiences that he wanted the procedure, “Because I’ve got a very strange shaped skull, very pointy and I don’t like wearing wigs.”
Brian Urlacher, 37, the fearsome former Chicago Bears linebacker, announced in January via Twitter that he had hair restoration surgery. In fact he went on television to show off his fuller head of hair. He said before he sought a medical solution he wore a baseball cap everywhere he went, since college.
Wes Walker, who played college ball at Texas Tech University before turning pro and is now the Los Angeles Rams wide receiver explained his transplant procedure to USA Today as, “nothing to be embarrassed about.” Now 34 years old, he said the advice he has given to other players who have asked is: “If you want to have hair, have hair.”
Kenny Wallace, who only just retired from NASCAR racing after 25 years of competition, has had three hair transplant procedures. As he said on his Twitter account, “My Hair transplant hurt a little only when the stuck the needle in my head 10 times to Numb it..ha ha ha!” The 52 year-old is still racing for fun on dirt.
