Harry Connick Jnr wears a rug. Springstein definitely does, as does Robin Williams.

Oh my god, Gary Numan ought to be arrested for wearing such an appalling hairpiece ! He was in an item on our local news the other day and I was GOGGLING at the wig. It made Frankie Howerd's look good !
I hope this link works. Remember Numan had receding hair way back when? Brace yourselves and check it out now ! http://www.zillo.de/magazin/mags/072...ary_numan.html

John Travolta wears a wig, Ted Danson wore a huge hairpiece when he was in Cheers, Nic Cage is rumoured to wear one.

Joan Collins, Beyonce and Dolly Parton are all wig wearers.

nobody is mentioning Whitney Houston? allegedly she has some condition that makes her bald and so always wears wigs. Also many many Jewish women wear wigs so I am sure we have a Jesuit Celebs that fall into that catagory.

Amy Winehouse?

I love wigs. By that I mean I love seeing them on other people, celebs or otherwise. My grandad had a colleague who had a jet black Davy Jones from the Monkees - style wig, which he wore all his life - the last time I saw him he must have been about 75! He used to draw on a black spiv-style moustache too I never found out his name, in our house he was of course known as Wiggy.

Sorry to go OT.

Frankie Howerd had a dreadful syrup. It was a completely different colour to the rest of his hair!

Is it not possible that he's grown the fringe longer?

I didn't know about Tegs either! But Tony Blackburns is dreadful, the way it stands proud off the back of his neck.

John Travolta has some awful wigs.

The least said about that 'short hair' wig of his, the better.

I suspect Travolta has a wardrobe full of wigs for different occasions.

I think only the beehive part of Amy's hair is false. There was some story about her being told that the hair was from Rumanian orphans who sold it because they needed the money. So she allegedly bought some more and donated money to them.

It sounds a bit far-fetched really, like one of those urban myths! Perhaps Amy's beehive will take on a life of its own and strangle passersby once she removes it to sleep.

She does wear a false hairpiece as a beehive though. It always looks to me as though rats and mice had taken up residence.

There are some good wigs out there that are actually very realistic.

Which makes me wonder why Blackburn's wig and Newman's wig are so bad.

Newman's looks like a ferret on his head, and Blackburn's I don't think is even real hair. Some sort of fibres. It looks dreadful on TV, must be a laughing stock close up.

I read somewhere that Terry Wogan has three wigs, one with a just cut look, second a growing in a bit do and the third a needing a haircut.
I read that too! And tell all my friends... I wonder if you're one of them!

What about that Google pic of John Travolta's wig...LOL. I always thought he had hair.

It's like a netting round the sides to make it look as if the hairs are growing out. So so sad.

Some pics!

http://www.bomdigi.com/images/wogan400.jpg

Ooh, that hair looks fake! Look at that plastic sheen under the harsh studio lights!

http://www.cultidols.com/images/idol...ey-200x250.jpg

I reckon that dark patch swirling around on top is a rug!

http://depts.washington.edu/kexp/blo...teen-Vandy.jpg

That's a pretty good wig if it is one, not in the usual side-parting that always exposes the stapled ferret gang (Whiteley, Forsythe, Wogan)... I can't see Bruce Springsteen being vain enough to wear a wig

There are too many amazing pictures of Ted Danson, couldn't pick just one, so here you go:

http://images.google.co.uk/images?gb...n&q=Ted+Danson

http://www.poster.net/cage-nicolas/c...ge-6225587.jpg

Is it just me or do those side burns look stuck on?

He's not that famous - but my own personal favourite rug is the one belonging to Michel Thomas language teacher to the stars. I think he is based in LA, and was once on the Big Breakfast teaching carpet monster to speak Spanish in an hour.
He was quite a short tempered fellow with those who didn't have the gift for a foreign tongue. I always like to think of his wig spinning like a top when he got frustrated and enraged with his dim witted students.

I will try and find a lovely pic of him and rug (spinning hopefully).
