Gary Numan

Bizarre godfather of synthpop Gary Numan started losing his hair quite young and talks about it candidly in his autobiography, Praying to the Aliens.



He had 2 hair transplants in the early 80s which he describes in fairly graphic detail. The hats he wore as part of his image around this time helped mask this. The surgeries didn't go particularly well and he claims to have had another procedure in 1993.



But there is no way that he got his current density from hair transplants, and what you're seeing now is surely a hair 'system'. This still from 1993 shows his old hairstyle, which is an unusual looking mixture of 'plugs', dye and judicious styling.



I suspect the transplant from 1993 was in truth a trip to one of those hair replacement centres that deal in wigs. This image from a year later shows the results of this and he has stuck with it ever since.



I have wondered why he appears to be so open about transplants but not the hair piece. Part of the reason may be that transplants are an expensive sounding, futuristic solution while there is still some stigma around wearing a toupee.



Numan seems quite happy with his hair these days, but if I were him I'd look at somewhere like http://www.toplace.com/ or http://www.hairdirect.com/ for any future hair pieces. Their wigs are quite undetectable and the forums are full of useful advice for hair 'wearers' (and no I am not affiliated with either site in any way!)

  1. hair transplants sounds painful, where does the hair even come from? also you should do a post about terry o'quinn he has embraced his baldness!

  2. Good suggestion, Mr. O'Quinn is a man who rocks the completely bald look.
    Hair transplants are taken from the areas that are resistant to baldness, usually being the lower back of the head although body hair can be used too! The most common 'strip' method of surgery will leave a scar across the back of the head where the strip of skin has been removed for it's follicles.

  3. Good Grief! That is one of the fakest hairpieces I have ever seen. Did he buy it from a Halloween store? Gary, you are so into technology - replacement hair units are nearly undetectable now - do yourself a favor already.

    I'm doing the "rockstar" thing and have worn replacement hair since the 80's. It's just part of who I am now, and I don't think anyone could tell. I wouldn't be caught dead going outside wearing something that looked like that though!

  4. Nice one warza - where do you get yours from? I don't know why Numan wears a piece like that. Maybe he just likes the unnaturally fake look, have you seen what his wife has done to herself?

  5. wigs have made the life easy and this had made possible for all women to get any sort of hair style without going to the salons. abhair are into trend and those of you who need to have them do not have to rush to salons rather you need to purchase abhair that are available all over the market and are very affordable.

  9. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí.

  12. Explanation for word origin of "Rock n' Roll": Returning World War II aircraft engine tshirts printing mechanics coined the term, 'rock 'n' roll". Since most military aircraft engines of this time had a part called a "rocker arm" that had a roller attached to one or both ends to open and close the intake and exhaust valves of an engine, and that this part valentines day shirts could be seen when the engine was running with the "rocker arm cover" removed, the mechanics could bruno mars shirt see this part: "rocking and rolling". An engine that was running well was said to be, "rockin an' rollin".
