Nowadays it is more common for celebrities to admit to having a hair transplant. There is less embarassment thanks in part to several high profile men admitting to having the procedure done and giving positive reviews about it via social media and video.
For those of you who are more mature, you may remember the constant teasing and heckling Eric Morecombe used to direct at his partner Ernie about his “piece”, implying Ernie wore a toupee. It was a comedic theme running through their partnership. More recently, Simon Cowell finally told Louis Walsh to get something done about his lack of hair, having teased him on air about his bald patch.
Reasons for celebrity hair transplants
In fact, Louis Walsh took the advice and had a hair transplant. He admitted that Simon had basically told him to get the hair sorted and he did so as a form of “maintenance” to maintain a more youthful appearance. This was after having dyed his grey hair for some years plus having his eyebags removed back in 2009.
Here is Louis before and after the transplant.
Louis admits that having seen the results of Wayne Rooney’s celebrity hair transplant he was encouraged by how natural it looked.
Wayne Rooney is probably one of the most high-profile sportsmen to have a hair transplant and was losing his hair at a very young age.
Back in 2010 Wayne Rooney was only 25 years old yet his hairline had significantly receded. He kept it cropped short to minimise the impact of his hair loss but admitted it was impacting his self-esteem.
In 2013 he had a Fue hair transplant at a Harley Street Clinic and sent out a tweet to all his followers confirming that he had undergone the procedure, proclaiming himself delighted with the result.
Wayne Rooney has done a lot for many men considering this procedure. He was honest about the impact losing his hair at 25 had on him and how the new hair made him feel more confident.
Below you can see the 2016 version of Wayne Rooney complete with hair transplant and even sporting a beard to complete the rugged sportsman look!
Other sportsmen who have had hair transplants include Steven Fletcher The Sunderland and Scottish International Football Striker, Rooney’s Manchester United colleague Ryan Giggs, tennis superstar Rafa Nadal, cricket players, Graham Gooch and Shane Warne and the rugby player, Kyran Bracken.
Actor celebrity hair transplants- it’s all part of the job
Ask any actor or actress about their hairstyle and they will laugh and raise an eyebrow. Actors hair undergoes a lot of work. They go from wearing costume wigs for period dramas to shaving their hair to within an inch of its life for post-apocalyptic dramas and sci fi (think Sigourney Weaver in Alien and James McAvoy in X-men apocalypse).
Actors are often the front men and women for hair products so what happens if their hair starts thinning and the hairline receding? Answer, they get a hair transplant because their hair is part of their trade. Jason Alexander who played famous bald man George Costanza on “Seinfeld” hilariously addressed his fans questions about his new thick locks via tweet explaining his shiny bald dome was a distraction- a beacon of light on stage and screen and needed to be sorted!
Hair loss is associated most commonly with ageing and stars of stage and screen want to keep their youthfulness for as long as possible. In fact age is nothing to do with it- male pattern baldness can occur at any age. However, actors are not in the business of growing old gracefully and, why should they? With so many advances in the science of hair loss treatment there is a solution to most forms of hair loss and receding hairline and the most effective is a hair transplant.
James Nesbitt has been open about having several hair transplant procedures since 2009 when his hairline started receding dramatically when he was in his early forties.
Here he is in 2008, During this time, he was working on stage and screen and in television. However, he claims that having the hair transplants boosted his career and got him more lead roles such as in The Missing and the Secret plus getting a role in The Hobbit. He felt that as he was in the public eye a lot comments about his hair were going to be inevitable.
Here is James after his first hair transplant.
James made a video about using hair transplant surgery as a solution and is very positive about the results.

As like anyone I was a bit nervous & sceptical about getting surgery abroad. Having said that I was totally surprised from a well organised 5 star experience.
Deciding on what clinic/surgen I wanted to choose, I'd done a process of elimination for pro's & con's. Looking into a wide range of company's GETHAIR came out on top for me. First reasons being, a well experience surgeon with thousands of operations preformed with a great success rate. A office in London, which made me think if there were any problems they're not too far. Good reviews throughout also swayed my mind towards them.
My communication to & from GETHAIR before my surgery was excellent. A speedy response with every question awnsered by Zak. Very friendly & polite must I add.
My transfers to & from the airport were on time, easy & efficient. Couldn't fault the service either, it was pretty good!
The accommodation I would say was excellent. Very clean, modern, with all the staff being very helpful & friendly. The food & dinner service was 5 stars from me, a great selection & well priced. The hotel is also in a great location due to it being opposite the hospital.
Before I left the UK I was in contacted with Cansu, she would be my correspondent for when I arrived in Turkey. An excellent servive from her being so kind & helpful throughout. With putting my mind at ease the whole time it made my experience so much better.
Once into the hospital & into the surgery room I felt quite relieved & relaxed about everything. Seeing the proffesionalism of the Dr Ilker & the team I felt excited. Very friendly, polite, helpful & always reassuring, which always makes the difference. Nothing ever felt like it was ever being rushed.
I would definitely choose GETHAIR again if I was to need more surgery in the future. Overall it was a great experience & a top quality service all round. I would like to thank all the staff involved again for everything
I did my research and chose gethair as they seemed professional and experienced. It was a very smooth experience from first contact to op day. Zak, the UK rep was very good and the hotel and hospital was too notch. Six month stage now, but if anyone is wavering... This is the right company for you. You won't go wrong.
I decided to go with GetHair after much exhaustive research. Firstly Dr Tafun is an extremely experienced hair surgeon. I noticed he is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS)and the European Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. I also noticed that the procedure took place in a state of the art, well equipped hospital. I also noticed many claims from different providers which I was very sceptical about (20 year guarantees etc) I am aware enough to know no one can guarantee such claims. In fact i had surgery in the UK and got a 10 year written guarantee. It was not worth the paper it was written on. I decided to check reviews, experience of staff and the knowledge of patient coordinators as a better guide. I also did not want a hard sell after being relentlessly pursued (More like hassled) by some clinics. I had excellent help and advice (and no hard sell) from Zak the UK patient coordinator. He inspired trust by his helpful and speedy response so I went ahead. At every stage I was helped and guided through the whole process from beginning to end. I paid my deposit, booked a date and my flight.Ii arrived in Istanbul and was met by the driver and immediately contacted by the (English speaking) Patient coordinator. She was very helpful and spoke perfect English. I then was taken to a very nice hotel (near the hospital).The next morning I was taken to the hospital and had my procedure. I was very nervous but Dr Tayfun and the staff all put me at ease. there was little pain and no sign of blood (which I am very averse to). I was then taken back to the hotel. I did have a little trouble sleeping but this was due to me needing to sleep on my back and being used to sleeping on my side. I was not in pain at all. The next day i was again taken to the hospital for a hair wash and then, advice and medication. I was then taken back to the airport for my flight home. All went smoothly. I was contacted again by the UK patient coordinator to check all was OK. Since then (around 2 weeks ago) I have asked many questions (nothing major just small queries) all of which have received quick, helpful responses. All is healing well and I am so looking forward to my hair growth. I must be honest and say I am absolutely delighted with the service I received. I honestly cannot fault a single thing. I would 100% recommend this clinic. It is the complete package of support, surgery and yes care. I really feel they care about the service they provide.
