Did Steve Carell Get a Hair Transplant?

Recommended Posts

Whether or not hollywood stars have had hair transplant surgery is always a fascinating topic. Many make the assumption that they don't because there are still bald actors. But when we see actors with a great head of hair, how do we know that they aren't at least partially transplanted or that their baldness is concealed in some way?

 

After all, hollywood is not immuned to female and male pattern baldness icon_smile.gif

 

I posted these pictures on another thread, but thought I'd post them here just for fun.

 

But because I am both a hair geek and a lover of the show "The Office", I couldn't help but take notice that Steve Carell season 1 looks like he had a bad hair transplant. By season 2 (and all his movies), his hair looks great!

 

Nothing was ever mentioned about his hair in the first season or the change in season 2, so I can't imagine it was just part of the show.

 

Here are some pictures. The first one is from the Office season 1 and the second one is from one of my favorite movies "Evan Almighty".

Just thought I'd share.

I would say most definately.

I watched the show through the years and I as everyone else knows, your hair thins as time goes on, not the other way around. and his has definately thickened up in the front.

I never noticed, but I've watched the show religiously from the beginning. But, I think he has. If you look at his temple area it's clear that he doesn't have near the receding in the second picture as the first.

 

It looks great, too. Maybe Dr. Carman or one of the other Cali docs did his. I got the opinion from one of his earlier posts that Dr. Carman might know of some who've had it done.

It also looks like he had a blepharoplasty ( eyelid surgery ) under the eyes to remove the puffy bags.

Arnold Shwarzniger, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Jack Nocholoson, Bono, John Travolta transplanted to the hilt plus also has had his scalp tattooed, because of his high skin to hair contrast, and that guy frm fools gold...sorry for my spelling but you know who they areicon_smile.gif

I think those Mel Gibson's are reversed. That second pic is from a while back and the first is more recent. Not saying he has or hasn't had a tp, but I believe he's much younger in the second pic.

 

And, I think The Edge has had a bad hair transplant but I'd be shocked to learn Bono has. His is so thick and long, that doctor would deserve a damn medal if that's the case.

Considering that Carell has so much body hair, I would think he was balding.

Wow, what a difference in these two pictures! How do we know for sure if that's a hair transplant? Or is it a toupee? It looks very natural!!!!

"Arnold Shwarzniger"

 

This misspelling may imply worse about the governator than a HT....

definitely. There are some scenes in season 1, where you can even see a bald spot in the back when he turns around. His surgeon did an excellent job.

 

a couple of other celebs I suspect of having a HT: Rob Schneider and Kirk Hammett of Metallica.

I'll tell you who has a toupee and a damned good one...Karl Ravech of ESPN. I worked there for three years. Best system I ever saw. You'd never know it up close!

I still do, but at a different network. It may seem like a dream job, but it gets old very fast, and the pay is not good. I've had to work through rain delays (Oh boy!) A 16 inning game that got over at 2AM one year. 2 years ago a rain delay that kept a game from getting started until 11:30 PM. And Stanley Cup overtime games? I've lived through a couple of 3-5 OTs in my day.

 

And those west coast games that start at 10:30 PM, eastern time...ouch!

Truth Seeker,

I guess I have to be in your shoes to see it otherwise, but I think I would be happy like a pig in shi.... you get the point. Karl Ravech has an impressive piece, I just found out Travolta was sporting one and Brandon Frasier. Me and my girlfriend were at the theater and I told her about Brandon Frasier was sporting a "piece" she wouldn't believe me at first, dude we are all hair geek here! Anyways I'm still jealous of your job!!!!!

Yes without a doubt, his hair looks so much better in season 2 than it did it season 1.

 

Great actor and fantastic series aswell.

My guess is NO HT-- just slicked down-- but who knows with actors on screen and all the coverup they use?

 

Smoothy

5 HT

Propecia/Rogain xtra

MSM/Saw Palmetto

Bono's hairline has been terrible for a looong time. Last time i saw a pic of him looked like he had it fixed.

I am a huge fan of "The Office" and noticed how thin he was in season 1. Then in season 2-5 he had much better, thicker hair.

 

I figured that he had a transplant. Regardless he looks much better in season 2-5!
