Bald Celebrities that May Surprise You

Did you know that tons of famous men wear hairpieces?  Some wear toupees while others wear full on mens wigs.  Some are very subtle, and others are pretty obvious. 

Who are these folically challenged fellas, you ask?  Well, there’s a ton of them, but here are a few fun bald celebrities. 

William Shatner

William Shatner Toupee

William Shatner has worn a hairpiece for many, many years.  In Star Trek II, you can even see his hair piece move!  The horror!  Look carefully, and you can see the edges of his hairpiece in the above photo.  He has since had hair plugs, erm, I mean hair replacement surgery. 

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen's real hair

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie…He wears a hairpiece most of the time.  Who knew?  Not me, that’s for sure.  I'm actually kind of surprised he could remember it.

Bret Michaels

My best friend from Jr High would kill me if she knew I was talkin' smack about Poison!  Who didn’t know Bret Michaels wore a wig?  I mean, his hair looks like doll hair for cryin out loud!  And if you ever watch Rock of Love, the girls are very careful not to touch the hair. 

Kevin James

Rumor is that Kevin James wears a toupee, and wore one during the filming of Kings of Queens.  I don't see it, but I don't know either way. 

Jeremy Piven

Jeremy Piven before and after hair

Jeremy Piven actually has a scar from his botched hair transplant surgery.  He also wears a piece to help cover that.  Of course, if you were paying attention, you saw his hair go from sparse to full and lush during one hiatus.  Hmmm….

Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons Bald

is bald and wears a wig.  While this isn’t really a surprise, it kind of is.  I mean, who would want their hair to look like his?  Plus, he pays extra for that.  Wow.  Just…wow.

Ted Danson

Ted Danson

Most people know Ted Danson wears a wig.  He did take it off during an episode of Cheers, after all.  His hair and hair pieces always look really natural. 

Jason Alexander

Jason Alexander Wig

I'm not sure why Jason Alexander started wearing a hairpiece.  Does he not realize that Seinfeld is on like 500 times a day, and we all know he's bald?  Whatever floats your boat.

Does this list of bald celebrities surprise you?  Who else wears a hairpiece? Let me know in the comments!

    Wow! I never would have guessed that these celebrities wear hair pieces. I must say that most of them look better with the hair piece. Keep up the terrific blogging.

    How interesting. I never knew any of these celebrities wore wigs or hair pieces. Most of them REALLY surprised me especially Brett Michaels and Charlie Sheen. Thanks for showing they are not all perfect either.

      Some of them I would have never guessed but Charlie Sheen, I could tell almost right away. Bret Michaels, yep. I saw a rerun of Joan and Melissa. Jason Alexander was on it and had that hair in the photo above. I didn’t know Gene Simmons wore one and why would he go with that? It looks like steel wool.

    What surprises me most is how hard it is to tell the hair isn’t real. Ted Danson and the others look so natural. Jason Alexander was the only one here I knew about.

  4. Sherry Compton says

    Charlie Sheen? I never would have guessed. I just assume it’s their normal hair. Jeremy Piven, Ted Danson…who knew? Thanks for the post. I’m fine with them wearing one…we all want to look and feel good, but I just hadn’t thought about it.

  5. Jessica Cox says

    Wow I didn’t know half of these guys were bald,It kinda nice to know they have issues like everyone else.

  6. Robin Wilson says

    The only one that floored me was Gene Simmons! I’m still not convinced. It would be really hard to get a wig that works for his makeup. But if he is…who cares? Who really cares about any of them being bald. Rather vain of them, and awful of us really.

    Remember seeing a bald Jeremy Piven playing a George Costanza look a like in a Seinfeld Episode.

    This post just blew my mind. I will probably stay up late thinking about it. Seriously, I DID NOT know about Bret Michaels. That kind of ruins him for me.

    Now, what would have really shocked me — is if you had said the Nelson Brothers wore wigs. I might not have been able to go on.

      I wanted to add that it ruins him for me not because he’s bald. I don’t care about that. I care because he actually wants his hair to look like baby doll hair, because you are right — that’s what it looks like!!
