These days it’s very hard to tell just by looking, if an actor has undergone a hair transplant. Some actors are very up-front about the procedure, either because it’s in their nature to be bold and honest, or because the press have pictures of their pre-transplant days and would be all too happy to remind them! Other actors are able to discreetly have small transplants before they thin or bald too much, and this helps their hairlines to remain consistently youthful throughout their career.
A truly flattering hair transplant always takes into account the age and unique features of the man, rather than simply drawing him a one-size-fits-all hairline. Mathew McConaughey is an excellent example of a man with a fine hair transplant. His distinctive widow’s peak hairline, which was beginning to age him and make him look a little vampirish, has been smoothed out into a more youthful, but still dignified and mature line, which suits his features perfectly. Get the right hairline, and you’ll be able to slick your hair back like this cool Hollywood actor!
Bono’s hair could not be more perfect. It’s clear that Bono’s transplant’s, as it’s rumoured that he’s had several, have been handled by an expert. Again, a mature but improved hairline adds depth to the features, and Bono hasn’t been tempted to overdo his hairline to claw back the years. He’s happy to be an elder Rock God, and his hairline perfectly reflects this. Bono’s hair is very thick, and while that may be due to his genes, he may also have a little help from a specialist thickening spray, which coats the individual hairs, thickening up the entire head of hair, or just those patches that need a little help.
Last in the trio of truly excellent hair jobs, Get Shorty actor and Hollywood heavyweight John Travolta has definitely seen his hairline raise and lower over the years. His thick, jet-black hair set off his strong features in his younger days, but as he aged and fell out of favour with Hollywood for a short time, his hairline began to creep north. Now he’s firmly established as a powerful A-lister with an impressive resume of roles, his improved hairline seems to confirm what Travolta fans knew all along – that he’s Hollywood royalty.
