If all your hair fell out tomorrow (and it could. It can happen to anyone at any time), and you had to wear a wig, would you like people laughing at it?
If it just for tv appearances and it looks stupid, yes. There's no 'had to wear it', it's just vanity for both men and women. They would look better plus cheaper on the pocket if they just get rid of it all.

And I've suffered hair loss when I passed out after hitting my head and some cream in my hair should had been washed out in no longer than 30 mins, was in there for 14 days.

Oh please I have relatives with alopecia so don't try and guilt trip me Its also completley different for men that it is for women, for women their hair is an important part of their feminity. This is not the case for men.

Men look silly in wigs and there is no need for them to wear them. Why not just go au natural like most other men in Britain.
You can just dismissively claim it's different for men than it is for women.

Feelings about baldness vary from individual to individual, man or woman, and people are entitled to wear wigs if they desire, without others passing judgment, let alone laughing and pointing like a five-year-old.

Don't you think your taking this a bit to seriousley? I think this thread was originally started as a bit of fun but I suppose there is always one who fails to find the funny side

No, I don't, although perhaps there are one or two people not taking it seriously enough.

I think you're getting a bit muddled between people who go bald because of a serious illness like cancer and silly middle-aged men who try to cover up their bald spots.

Then you'd be wrong. Both men and women can go bald from an excess of testosterone too.

Saw David 'Diddy' Hamilton on Sky Sports Soccer AM, being interviewed as the PA at Fulham nowadays and always thought he was a wearer, but he looked to have a perfectly natural head of hair and plenty of it!

Well, wigs can look great if you get the right type, colour and style. However I'm not sure why people who already have enough hair decide to wear wigs, unless they are actors or something.

Indian hair wigs are great value and make a good investment.

It's not only the eldery celebs. Doesn't Darren from SCD wear a wig?
Well I can tell you that he definitely is a wearer of a piece. FOR A FACT!

There is no question Bruce wears a wig; he has done nothing to hide the fact. I never thought Terry wears a wig.

Every Sunday I watch Henry Kelly reviewing the papers on sky news, my eyes are drawn to his head, and I am convinced he does wear a wig!

Funny Thread

and here's my additions:


Raquel Welch (who I think sells a range as well)

Silvio Berlasconi (I know he's a politician, but he did just win
the Italian Rolling Stone Mag's "Rock Star
of the Year" award, so he's a worthy
addition)

Mikey Graham (Boyzone)

I think both Silvio and Mikey have gone the hair transplant route though and I must say Mikey's looks pretty good!

I was going to say Jimmy White but someone beat me too it!

But I don't believe The Boss is a wig wearer...........noooooooooo, not The Boss

Does anyone seriously believe that all The Stones (except Charlie) still have all their hair?

Ditto Rod Stewart, Cliff Richard and just about every other 60+ in the public eye.

I do think that Billy Connelly still has lots of his own hair though.

As someone mentioned earlier, the MP Michael Fabricant cannot possibly think he is fooling anyone!! I mean really - its just glaringly obvious.

I'm sure emotionally when suffering hair loss its no different but the fact remains that women CAN get away with wigs more than men can. I suppose because women wear hair extensions etc its less obvious. Take Beyonce for example, she wears wigs the majority of the time. I have seen a few dodgy pics but on the whole it looks much better than Wogan and co's efforts.

I have a friend with alopecia and nobody would guess it wasn't her own hair. She looks stunning. For some reason women tend to look less 'obvious' with wigs for the most part.

Acerbic TV columnist Victor Lewis-Smith often recounted that he was going to be in the audience for a Wogan show and dash onstage to rip the wig off.
The production crew was tipped off and he was subsequently banned.
He has claimed that he'll give 1,000 to anyone who succeeds.

Why not. My dad is 74 and hasn't lost a bit. Still only about 30% gey as well and he doesn't dye it.

Sorry to revive this thread, but I caught Wogan on the One Show last night.

I have always been fascinated by his hair, and they showed a clip of him in the 70's, where his hair was darker and much longer, but the comb over was even more blatant. My conclusion is that he had a comb over then, but now its a piece made to look like a comb over, he would need to have a massive amount of side hair to achieve such a work of art.

I guess the problem is that once you go for that style you have to stick with it, as being in the public eye, any sudden change of style would confirm to the public that he is indeed a gary (baldy), but he's still a legend!

The best wig that I've seen so far is Eddie Jordan's but a careful look will reveal that tell tell sign of lifting at the back of the neck!

I've recently started to go bald, yes it does knock your confidence a tad, but surely not as much as living in constant fear of a sudden gust of wind, or one of your younger relatives giving it a tug!

Ewwwwwwwwwwww, why do they wear them? Spend all me time looking at the wig and wondering whether it`s got a life of it`s own and not watching the prog.
