5 Famous Men Dealing with Hair Loss

Posted by Santana Fell on 2023 Dec 14th

Hair loss does not differentiate between men and women, the general masses, famous personalities, or renowned celebrities. For some of us, our hair sheds mercilessly, oftentimes going on a devastating rampage, leaving little to save. As such, hair loss is no stranger to contemporary lifestyle, partly due to high stress levels and genetics and also accelerated by faulty eating habits and poor nutrition.

Hair loss has always been a natural and inevitable part of life for many individuals, but only now are people more open about its impact on their physical and mental well-being, creating extensive awareness on the topic.

The most common cause of hair loss in men is androgenetic alopecia — also known as hereditary hair loss. Male pattern baldness can start as early as 15 years of age. In fact, 1 in 4 men will start balding before age 21. Severe hair loss affects up to one-third of all men by age 30.

No wonder an increasing number of people are turning to alternative hair solutions like non-surgical hair replacement systems.

If you are thinking, why not hair loss medications or hair transplants? Well, to start with, they are expensive and risky, with many side effects that impact one in a big way. Also, the hair gained through these methods is not a permanent fix. The results are not guaranteed; you may need to make multiple attempts and wait for months before you see some results.

According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, male pattern baldness affects roughly 50 percent of men, and 4 out of 5 men experience some degree of hair loss by age 70. Women aren't immune either, with roughly 40 percent experiencing signs of hair thinning by age 50. These statistics highlight the widespread impact of hair loss, making it a concern for people of all ages and genders.

But there's good news! Numerous renowned figures in Canada have embraced hair systems and toupees with confidence, setting an example for others to follow. From actors to athletes, these individuals have shown that it's possible to navigate hair loss with self-assurance and positivity.

Known for his charismatic charm, the once termed ‘sexiest man alive,’ the A-List Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has come a long way in the entertainment industry. So has his hair, which has recently received a lot of flak. Being the absolute gentleman that he is, he openly admitted to having experienced some significant physical and mental stress during his shoot for ‘Buried,’ which caused hair loss and hair thinning. Luckily for him, stress-induced hair loss is temporary, and he will soon get to see his hair back in its full glory.

Though not officially confirmed, Ryan Reynolds is thought to have used hair systems to conceal his thinning and greying hair with a hint of a receding hairline.

"Back to the Future" and "Family Ties" star Michael J. Fox has had Parkinson's disease, the treatment for which is accompanied by hair loss. Despite the distress and physical ailments, he hasn't lost to his problems.

3. William Shatner

William Shatner played the iconic role of Captain James T. Kirk in "Star Trek," owning the screen like a boss. Fans loved the series and even the movie but didn't fail to notice a marked difference in Shatner’s hair. Eagle-eyed fans questioned how his locks improved with time instead of deteriorating with age. But the truth is, William Shatner wore a men's hair replacement unit or a hairpiece even before commencing the shoot for Star Trek: The Original Series. He continued to wear enhanced hair systems over time, carefully camouflaging his hair loss.

4. Elon Musk

That the wealthiest man in the world was losing hair is no big secret, even if he doesn't openly admit it. His hair loss was a classic case of male pattern baldness with a receding hairline and balding crown from his late teen years. He went from sparse hair to a full head of hair over the years, turning back time and aging in reverse, or so it seemed. That changing hairline speaks for itself. He has visibly more hair now than he had in his early 20s. Musk’s now lustrous hair is no work of miracle but rather the result of a set of skilful doctors, several hair transplants, hair therapies and medications.

5. Brendan Fraser

Brendan Fraser

Fraser shot to instant fame with the hit movie, ‘The Mummy’. His lush locks and enchanting blue eyes made him a heartthrob among his female fanbase, and he soon rose in popularity by delivering back-to-back hits. With fame comes scrutiny, and the media can be a ruthless place. Many noticed a receding hairline and thinning hair at the top of the Canadian-American actor. However, he now has a beaming hairline of healthy hair that screams he went under the knife for it.

Going under the knife is not a feasible option for many. It is expensive, leaves visible scars, and isn't a permanent or instant solution. Try men's hairpieces for a more inexpensive on-spot hair loss solution that gives you instant results.
