Gone today, hair tomorrow: the world of hair transplants

For anyone who missed my piece in the Telegraph Style Supplement, you can read it by clicking on the image below. 

Oh, and here’s a little paragraph that ended up on the paper’s cutting room floor but which I think gives you an insight into why I fear anything to do with hair restoration!

“This is certainly a far cry from the days when men either reluctantly accepted baldness or threw caution, along with self-respect, to the wind and donned a toupée – an accessory guaranteed to elicit derision and terrify small children. I myself am psychologically scarred after seeing corner shop owner Arthur Moore’s syrup tumble into a crate of apples when I was a seven year old (I thought the top of his head had fallen off).” 

Agassi wigs out!

AgassiCan you believe that tennis ace Andre Agassi actually wore a wig during the 1990 French Open? Confessing all in his new autobiography he says: “During the warming-up training before play I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off.”

And as a baldie myself I  sympathise, I really do. But answer me this: who in hell actually opts to wear a wig in the shape of a really bad mullet?
