To say it’s a hair-don’t is to put it kindly. We thought that when Make Me Heal ran a story on the unsightly rug John Travolta sported at last year’s Oscars, he’d do something about it. Instead, he seems to have simply shaved it down for this year’s Oscars.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul S. Nassif reports, “John Travolta doesn’t look like he has hair transplant. It does look like he is wearing some sort of hairpiece.” Unfortunately, although it’s likely an expensive system and requires a lot of maintenance, it’s not doing its job if the world can still see it as a piece and not hair.
Presenter John Travolta was joined at the Oscars by fellow hair-loss sufferer, Tom Hanks, who was also a presenter this year. Unlike John Travolta, Tom Hanks went with “a natural appearing hair transplant with single hair units in the frontal region. Hair remains receding in the temporal region,” according to Dr. Nassif. Hair transplants are more costly and require a lot of maintenance, unlike many hair systems. But they can be worth it in the long run, as they are designed to regrow hair where it has been lost due to male pattern baldness.
Although they are both wonderful veteran actors, both John Travolta and Tom Hanks have a long way to go before they can boast wonderful hair.
