Axl Rose

I apologise for the recent lack of updates to the site. In the last few months, my position as one of the top 17 blogs about celebrity baldness gave me delusions of messianic grandeur, and I became a recluse with mental problems. Coincidentally, my latest post is about W.Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N' Roses.

A shampoo commercial would probably describe Axl Rose's old hair as strawberry blonde, super fine and flyaway, although a cynic would probably call it thin and ginger.

After the release of The Spaghetti Incident? in 1993 he withdrew from the public and became something of a hermit.

This mugshot is from 1998 when he was arrested for threatening an airport security guard. His hair looks alright to me here, maybe a little thin but nothing unusual for a man that age.

The early 2000s saw a few sporadic returns to the limelight, and a world tour was planned for the year 2001. This was cancelled, with some rumours suggesting this was due to a botched hair transplant Rose had undergone.

Whatever the true reason, when he reappeared the next year he seemed to have modelled his entire look on the fictional Predator monster, perhaps signalling the peak of his mental decline.

His bloated, shiny appearance was indicative of plastic surgery. Fan forums have speculated that the bizarre cornrows he sported were an attempt to cover his baldness, or the botched hair transplant.

To the relief of his many fans he is looking more normal these days, although for the past few years he has been a constant hat and bandana wearer, even on stage, which is suspicious.

Recently though, he has finally been pictured without a hat and at first glance appears to have a completely normal head of hair - albeit one with a completely different texture to that which he used to have.

I have just realised that he turned fifty a few days ago, so let's consider this a birthday tribute to the man and his unusual, probably transplanted, hair.

Norwood Rating : 2


  1. what norwood # would you give tom felton?

  2. Hello friya
    I think he's a bit unlucky in that he has a large, wide forehead and a high mature hairline. But he has had this for years (see picture in this link) so he may not even be actually balding. He's probably closest to a 2a on the norwood scale

  3. Let’s see who else shaved their hair to get into a character’s skin on this bald actresses article.

  4. who cares? He is just like any normal male on the planet!
    Let's celebrate his talents not his looks cause we are all bound to get old anyway!

  5. Is it better to be a sell out Axl or Slash with the hat or an underground star who doesn't care to go for a hair transplant? At least I use some kind of a hair loss shampoo with ketoconazle. Yeah I said it, i get some RegenePure at Slash wins Axl...

  6. The reasons for hair loss could be different. But in most cases it is the result of some problems with health. Right nutrition is vital to support healthy hair and healthy body. In order to make sure I am providing all the necessary vitamins for my hair I am taking special nutritional supplement, which contains the unique combination of herbs and microelements. This supplement is HairGain Formula (90 capsules) by Military Grade. This product is the only nutraceutical which possesses prostaglandin D2 blocking properties. Awesome nutritional product which defends my hair from falling out and enhances healthy hair growth.

    1. Someone has sold you a bill of goods. You can apply all the agents you like, but taken to its lowest common denomator, it's a matter of genetics. Simply speaking it's in your DNA

  7. Correct. Hair loss is entirely in your DNA
    Look at your maternal grandfather for a clue.
