Not read all this thread but surprised no one has mentioned Paul Mcartney. Dont know what that is on his head but its not natural.
It is a bit suspicious given his son is already bald.

Nick Clegg's hair looks very dodgy.

His hairline seems to shift about two inches, higher and lower.

Just watching Loose Women now and Carol definitely wears wigs. Colleens looks a bit dubious too.

Hashimilite Jewish ladies wear wigs!! Their religion demands it!

Or is it Hasmidic?!!!
Lol, that would be 'chasidic' It isn't just the chasidic Jewish women, it is all those who are more religious, but many of them are 'normal religious' and wear normal but modest clothes rather than the more extreme clothing of the chasidim.

The religion doesn't demand it as such, but they do have to cover their natural hair for reasons of modesty once they are married. Some wear hats, some wear scarves or snoods and some wear wigs (known as sheitels).

I read that and thought "Nah!"

.... then I googled him and thought "Hmmm...."

He does have remarkably thick hair for a man of his age.

But when you look at lots of pictures of him, you can see that he nearly always has his hair pushed back from his forehead and his actual hairline has barely changed over the years. If he is wearing wigs, his "stylist" must have put a hell of a lot of thought into maintaining that hairline.

That's how I know I'm hanging on to my own hair. I have very fine (i.e. not thick) hair and a "high forehead" and I sometimes worry that I'm receding... but I know exactly what my hairline looks like and it hasn't changed (unless it's all receding in a perfectly uniform way....)

Steve Harley from '70s group, Cockney Rebel, wears a wig, but to be fair to him it's pretty good.

And how Mick Jagger would look like without a 'wig'.

Which reminds me, I do wonder about people like Jeff Beck and Ronnie Wood, who've had exactly the same hairstyles for 45 years....

Well he may well be a lucky bloke and have good strong, thick hair that isn't receding, but I have my suspicions.

Check out Harry Connick Jnr's toupee - it's a corker

http://www.baldcelebrity.com/wp-cont...-hairpiece.jpg

I realise that the following pic is not of a celebrity and so is officially off topic but the toupee is so stupendously bad, forgive me but I just had to put him on here ....

Feast your eyes on this beauty http://thechive.files.wordpress.com/...es-funny-6.jpg

Yeah that old guy's a legend among bad toupees. And Harry Connick Jnr is definitely having a bad wig day.

* Nicolas Cage wig:

And what he's really like:

If I were him I'd shave the lot off and go with it, a la Bruce Willis.

IMO the very worst wig in Showbiz history has to be Frankie Howerd's! It was actually way funnier than he was.

Said toupee was even exhumed and put on show.

Dr David Lewis. I was just thinking about him yesterday but couldn't find a good picture to illustrate.

I saw the programme a couple of weeks ago and assumed he must be wearing at as some kind of disguise, although I couldn't imagine why. It really does look extraordinary.

Adam Leventhal's barnet on Sky Sports News has always looked rather dodgy to me.

Why on earth does he have a picture of himself looking perfectly normal with his real hair at the top of the page, then show a video with his ridiculous-looking irish?

Does he honestly think no-one will notice? Or doesn't he care?

I must admit I've been suspicious of Martin Freeman on more than one occasion... maybe he used to wear wigs but now he's had hair transplant.

And me!!. I think I saw him on The One Show too the other night.
It's way too big for him and looks terrible.
Wonder why somebody doesn't tell him.
