Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie's hair is an excellent example of a great cover up job by television make up artists.



Given the extent of his bald patch, I would have thought the only thing capable of covering it up would be a hairpiece, although some have claimed that that Toppik fibres could give this result.



Laurie has been balding for around 20 years now as these stills from "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" show.



To his credit, he is open about his baldness and has appeared in public numerous times au naturel.



Despite his baldness Laurie is seen as a sex-symbol and is consistently voted onto those sexiest male lists. So well done to him.



Let's hope the execs at Fox see sense soon and let Hugh use his real hair in House. They could even make his hairloss a part of the storyline.



Norwood Rating : 3v

  1. I'd say going to prison was a pretty good reason for House to loose his hair. I have been impressed by the hair design on the show, but was very excited to see him natural in the new season.

  2. Norwood 3 v? How comes? :)
    That said I like to say Nw's are not really indicated for much much more than frontal parietal receding aka, those lucky men that don't recede more than norwood 3 retaining all hair thickness.

  3. Hello Anto. You're right, and this is where the Norwood Scale can fall down. Laurie is no more than a 3 at the front, but his massive crown balding is more like a 5. So going strictly by the Norwood Scale illustrations he is closest to a 3v. I haven't seen him for a while so this may be out of date of course.
