10 celebrities who have had hair transplants

Well I had to scour the hidden recesses of the interwebs to find these old pictures of celebs before they had new hairs implanted into their scalps.

Elon Musk

Elon Musk’s hair transplant is one of the best I’ve seen. Most people are completely unaware that he’s even had one. I once had a conversation with someone about intelligence and hair loss. I was saying intelligent people tend to lose their hair far more than dumb people and my friend said, “what about Elon Musk? He’s got loads of hair”. To that I replied, “he’s had a hair transplant”. Seems my theory holds up.

Jeffrey Star

Jeffrey Star is a make-up tutorial person on YouTube. My wife actually watches his show sometimes so he must be famous. You can see in the before photo he had a fairly high hairline, caused by the androgen hormone DHT early on in life. This is very common. I talked previously about Harry Style’s hairline, which receded like this in his teens. This is far more common than you might think. Jeffreys’s hair transplant is very impressive. He now has a great hairline, which will make styling his long hair much easier.

Matthew McConaughey

Voted the sexiest man alive in People Magazine in 2005, this hunky heartthrob is best known for going shirtless, showing off his buff body. In the interests of looking his best, he has had his thinning hair filled in. Hey, he looked great either way but if a hunk like Matthew McConaughey is comfortable with hair replacement what have you got to lose?

Elton John

His hair started thinning back in the early 70’s. Always ahead of the curve, Elton John was one of the first really famous people to get a hair transplant. He was such a super-star, and the change was so obvious, that he could not deny it. Hair transplant technology has come a long way since then, but you could say that Sir Elton was a hair transplant pioneer.

Mel Gibson

With his rugged, chiselled features, piercing blue eyes, and intense acting style, Mel Gibson had been a big box office draw for decades. He was People’s sexiest man alive in 1985, and made their 50 most beautiful people list many times. Although he has not gone public about his HT, in around 2006, his hairline, which had been receding, crept forward again, and the thinning hair on top became thick and lush. Inside sources have confirmed his HT, and said he’s very pleased with his new look.

Louis Walsh

A judge on the British TV show The X Factor, Louis Walsh has spoken publicly about his hair transplant. He decided to have the surgery at the urging of his friend Simon Cowell. He has been quite open about the transplant, referring to it as “Maintenance,” and expressing his satisfaction with the procedure, which really does look quite natural. He has even gone as far as recommending his surgeon to friends.
