Paul Simon

This is not a particularly interesting one but I felt I should mention him after writing about his musical partner, Art Garfunkel.

Paul Simon started going bald in his 20s, and by the 1970s he was employing some combover type hairstyles.

This baffling hairstyle was popular with balding men and a common sight in that decade.

Below, at the 1975 Grammy awards with Bowie, Garfunkel, Yoko Ono and John Lennon.

For his 1980 'comeback' One Trick Pony, he appeared to have a full head of hair again, and it is generally acknowledged by his fans that this was down to a toupee.

He carried on wearing for a long while after this but stopped sometime in the mid 90s.

Norwood Rating : 5-6


  1. short, ugly and bald....imagine his life if he didn't have talent

  2. Balding men should be incarcerated. In time, the evil gene my be expunged from society.

    1. Haha, now that is the most stupid comment I've read in a long time.
      The balding-gene usually comes from the mothers side BTW.

    2. Right. So, balding men should be allowed to have sons only. The risk of baldness would be passed on to their grandsons via their daughters.

  3. People are such jerks sometimes. :(
