Hair Transplants in Celebrities

hair

It’s a recurring theme in movies and TV shows – men who have visibly aged, many to the point of needing facelifts and skin toning Botox therapy, and yet somehow, they’ve retained the flawless hairline of a 17-year old. People who don’t know about hair transplants, or “plugs” as they’re often called by celebs, might be quick to dismiss the ongoing hype about celebrities paying exuberant amounts to avoid the otherwise inevitable fate of baldness.

The quality and convincingness of hair transplants has increased exponentially along with a rising demand for believable hair replacement services. So just how many male celebrities have hair transplants now, and how common might this procedure be ten years from now?

Confidentiality Clauses and Ever-Growing Portfolios are Hard to Turn Down

There’s no shortage of before and after pictures of famous men who suddenly have full heads of hair after suffering from severe thinning. In fact, bloggers have compiled entire lists of these people who have managed to not only replace their hair but continue on about their careers as if they were never losing it to begin with. The ability to utilise such a service successfully even as a high-profile individual relies upon the confidentiality agreement that all clinics operate by.

Basically, a man never has to worry about his hair replacement provider telling the whole world that he’s got plugs, so people can speculate all they want, but they can never prove it. The fact that celebs are getting away with it left and right under the spotlight of Hollywood, without receiving much backlash at all, certainly provides comfort to the ordinary guy who goes in for a hair transplant.

The New Porcelain Veneers?

The consistently satisfactory results that hair transplants are beginning to provide is giving people the confidence to undergo these procedures at an all-time high. The wave is very similar to the emergence of veneers and advanced cosmetic dentistry that has been responsible for many of the perfect white smiles we’ve become accustomed to seeing on celebrities.

It’s an exciting time to think that it’s possible to largely reverse and correct two of the biggest signs of aging – hair loss and dental issues – with highly reliable success rates and in an increasingly affordable and widely available manner. Just think that, by 2040, the act of tolerating male pattern baldness could be the equivalent of not getting braces.  There are even medical developments that have some people wondering whether baldness could soon become a thing of the past.

So What’s the Closest Estimate?

While the aforementioned confidentiality clauses will keep us from ever compiling accurate data on how many celebrities are getting hair transplants, sites like BuzzFeed have compiled lists of 40+ famous men who currently have more hair than they used to. Many openly admit to having transplants and state that they’re thrilled with the decision. For example, there’s footballer Wayne Rooney who got a hair transplant at Harley Street Hair Clinic in June 2013. He openly admitted to the procedure on social media and has expressed his delight with the result.

Bald vs Hair Transplants: Is There Really a Question?

Once hair loss has progressed to the point of complete baldness on the top of the head, getting a hair transplant begins to look like the only long-term solution worth considering. Even celebrities who remain in the public eye are willing to opt for a hair transplant when faced with the alternative of having to permanently sport a bald head for the rest of their lives. Is this more to do with conforming to the social norm or more about a lack of confidence?

Beauty Hacks to Get You Beach Ready

As you’ll know if you’ve read my Winter Growler Guide, I’m keen on getting seasonal grooming right. With that in mind, if you have a holiday booked this summer and you don’t feel beach ready and that’s important to you, don’t panic. There’s still time to perfect your look so that you ooze confidence whether you’re taking a splash in the ocean or hitting up the beach bar.

In this blog post, you’ll find three beauty tips that are guaranteed to make you feel fab just in time for your upcoming trip. The good news is, you can easily purchase the products you need to get gorgeous from online retailers. For example, you can order toiletries from HiHouse and have them delivered straight to your doorstep. 

  1. Prep Your Skin in Advance

So that you’re totally holiday ready, it’s important that you prep your skin – especially if you plan on strutting around in a bikini. Before you jet off to your destination, get rid of dry, flaky skin using an all over body exfoliator with a pair of scrubbing mitts. Each time you hop in the shower, gently rub your skin from top to toe, focusing on the areas that are particularly prone to dryness, such as your elbows, knees, ankles and heels.

Afterwards, use a rich moisturiser to hydrate your skin. Doing this in the run up to your holiday will ensure that you’re ready to strip down to your swimsuit when you arrive at the beach.

  1. Get your Beach Tan Off to the Best Possible Start

Sometimes, it can take a couple of days for the sun to work its magic on your skin, leaving you feeling a little pasty at the beginning of your holiday. So to get your tan off to the best possible start, and to give you the confidence boost you might need to feel your best on the beach, why not faux your glow? Fake tan is a great way to give yourself a little bit of colour, and it’s a much safer alternative to lying out in the sunshine.

There are a variety of different types of tan on offer, from tanning mousse, to gradual cream, to in-shower lotions. You could even treat yourself to a professional spray tan. The tanning product you use will determine how long before your holiday you should bronze up. For example, if you’re planning on using a gradual tanner, you may want to start using it in the weeks leading up to your trip, while a spray tan should be done a couple of days before to make sure it lasts you all holiday.

  1. Schedule in Enough Time for Hair Removal

There’s no doubt you’ll want to be fuzz-free for your beach holiday, so it’s essential that you schedule in enough time for your hair removal session before you leave. This is especially important if you plan on visiting a salon. It’s likely you’ll need to book an appointment, so make sure you give them plenty of notice. Leaving it to the last minute could mean that they’re unable to squeeze you in.

If you’re taking your hair removal matters into your own hands, it’s just as important that you time it right. For example, if you’re going to be using wax, you should allow your hairs to grow as long as possible for optimum results, so it might be a good idea to skip a few shaves in the run up to your holiday.

As long as you feel great, there’s nothing holding you back from having the holiday of a lifetime. If some extra preparation and grooming does that for you, these tips area good place to start.
