Pictures of a puffy faced Gordon Ramsay surfaced yesterday after spending a reportedly £30,000 on a hair transplant operation. The vain chef who thinks he's god's gift will no doubt pretend it's required for his US television presence. Irish actor James Nesbitt recently admitted spending £7,000 on two hair transplants and Elton John's hair work is one of his best features. Male hair transplants are becoming more common as the procedures offer better results and unlike other forms of plastic surgery it is often difficult to detect.
Thinning hair seems to be the Achilles heel of modern masculinity. Not matter how many times or how many examples we see of good-looking bald men, there are those who still want a full head of hair. Our virile narcissism wont let our follicles go and we are willing to pay through the nose for it.
There could be hope for those without the budget for costly hair grafts, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have recently discovered that skin on the heads of bald men contain as many potential hair cells as their hirstute counterparts. Potentially these could be reawakened, experiments on mice have kick started hair growth.
TheChicGeek's advice is - Whether you're a Clooney or a Willis, sometimes all you need is a good haircut.
