It is no longer a secret that celebrities have been undergoing hair restoration procedures since the dawn of the silver screen. Oh, come on! You know you are curious as to which Hollywood celebs, famous politicians and sports stars have made the leap from thinning or balding to a thicker, richer head of hair or improved hairline. Some have been very honest and proud of their new look, while others opt to keep their restoration efforts under wraps.

If you have ever considered investigating a procedure or treatment for yourself, take a look at our list of the rich and famous that walked in the same shoes before you. You may be surprised with some on our list, and may be aware of others. The wonderful news is that the hair restoration industry has come a long way over the years, since the days of hair flaps and hair plugs. Until you see before and after pictures, the procedures done nowadays are natural looking and nearly undetectable!

HOLLYWOOD ACTORS (just to name a few…)
John Travolta, Steve Carell, Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, Jeremy Piven, Hugh Laurie, Al Pacino, Dennis Miller, Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Gosselin (from Jon & Kate plus 8), Gordon Ramsay, Billy Bob Thornton, Brendan Fraser, Jamie Foxx and Nicholas Cage have all gone this route.
While we named the gentlemen so far, female’s in Hollywood tend to be a bit more tight-lipped, so we will take artistic liberties and look past the hair extensions, hair pieces and wigs. Other women in Hollywood have noticeably wide parts, receding hairlines, or visibly thinning hair. Khloe Kardashian, Megan Fox, even supermodel Naomi Campbell have shown visible hair loss. It could be attributed to low body weight, hectic lives or damage from bright lights or hair extension damage, we wouldn’t know, but hair loss effects even the glorious stars of the big and small screen. Even talk show hostesses who have had the guts to remove their wigs on the air like Sherri Shepherd and Wendy Williams, proud of their beautiful wigs, have shined a light on hair loss!

SPORTS STARS (again, just to name a few…)
David Beckham and Wayne Rooney (both soccer stars), Tom Brady (football), LeBron James (basketball) and countless others have all had hair restoration procedures.

MUSICIANS (a few well known names here…)
Bono (U2), Sir Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, “boy-banders” A.J. McLean (Backstreet Boys) and Joey Fatone (N’Sync) have gone the permanent hair restoration route. Britney Spears and Fergie have both suffered hair thinning, and let’s not forget our favorite ladies known for their wigs (and seldom seen in their natural state); Cher, Lady Gaga and Dolly Parton. We have no idea what the status of their natural hair looks like, to be honest.

The most famous politician is our current Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, who underwent hair restoration surgery in his youth. Let’s not leave the lady politicians out though, because the current Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, and former candidate for Vice President, Sarah Palin have both experienced visible hair thinning and loss.

The phenomenon of hair loss and balding effects men and women from all walks of life. If you have experienced this in your own life, we recommend looking at some before and after photos of the celebrities mentioned above. You will find the results to be miraculous, even subtle and natural these days. The most important things to remember are to find skilled and experienced experts, like Dr. Stein and Tatiana Maya (our nationally renowned hair restoration artists) at Hair Restoration Specialists ( to consult with you and perform your procedure, and to call today at 312-806-2203.
