Male Celebrities Who Wear Toupees and Wigs Due to Hair Loss

Hair loss is something that most males will experience in their lives. According to the American Hair Loss Association, some U.S. males start experiencing hair loss or hair thinning from the age of 21.

Going bald is natural and inescapable for some people. Even the sexiest guys on the planet, like male celebrities, actors, and sports players, anchors, can go bald when they get older. And wearing a hair system or toupee to transform the look has become a trend among bald male celebrities.

Modern hair systems and toupees are no more the old-fashion, stereotypical hairpieces your grandfather wore. They are more lightweight, absolutely undetectable, very comfortable to wear, and truly make you feel better about yourself.

Now, let’s dive directly into our list of male celebrities who wear toupees and get inspired by the classic, handsome hair system haircuts your favorite celebrities wear!

Matthew McConaughey


Matthew McConaughey is known to be one of the most handsome and sexiest actors in Hollywood. He always appears in public and in his movies with his beautiful curly blonde hair.

However, he actually went bald in the 90s, and now he is noticeably getting more hair, which could be attributed to hair transplant surgery or wearing an undetectable hair system or toupee.

Brad Pitt


Brad Pitt is one of the most attractive and sexiest men in the world, and his hairstyles have always influenced men’s hair trends. However, he is also one of the male celebrities who are on of list of male celebrities who use hair systems.

Once his bald spots and receding hairlines were spotted when he attended an event, his hair loss quickly became the top news at that time.

Fortunately, the situation improved later, and now he appears in public with his trademark thick blonde hair, which means his hair restoration was a great success.

Although the public never stops rumoring about his hair loss solutions, he has never revealed the truth. Some of his fans guessed that he has done hair transplant surgery, whereas others believe he wears various wigs or toupees.

Brad Pitt’s hairstyle is very similar to Matthew McConaughey’s haircut but his hair is straight and thick. An 8” length hair system is great to achieve this long hairstyle.

To get Brad Pitt’s signature look with a toupee, we recommend using our newly released INSEU  injected thin skin hairpiece.

The INSEU hair system features a medium density and a longer finished length in 6″, 8″, and 10″, which is a great option for you to try any long hairstyles.

Jon Cryer


Jon Cryer is one of the few male celebrities who’s honest about weaing hairpieces to conceal his bald head. He has joked that he only has “four or five hairs” on his head. For most roles and public appearances, he wears a toupee.

Here, during a show, he publicly tells everyone he’s wearing a toupee, which requires a lot of courage to do. Many respects to this man!

Robert Pattinson


Robert Pattinson, the actor who stole millions of female hearts in Twilight, said in an interview that he wore a hairpiece in the final Twilight film.

Unlike other celebrities who are bald as they age, Pattinson’s thinning hair is due to over-styling and over-bleaching.

His hair loss made him unable to wear the hairstyle of his role, Edward Cullen, so he chose to use a hairpiece instead.

Al Pacino


A Hollywood legend, Al Pacino has also struggled with hair loss. The actor has been spotted at movie promotions and public appearances with a toupee.

Moreover, his photographs are evidence that he has several toupees, which he has worn time and again at various events.

Jude Law


The next celebrity wig and toupee wearer on our list today is Jude Law, a British Academy Award winner and a talented star.

He was spotted with a short crop of hair receding at the front and sides in 2013, but in 2015 in the movie SPY, he made an appearance with a fuller head of hair. The change in his hair made many people guess that he wore a hair system or wig.

Pat Sajak

As an American television personality and game show host, Pat’s secret of wearing a toupee in public was revealed more than 14 years ago in 2008, when he told the audience that he had a big secret that he wanted to finally reveal to viewers in the show “Wheel of Fortune.” 

He claimed that his hair was not his own, but a hairpiece instead.

Vanna White, the longtime hostess of the show, was shocked after knowing that, as she plucked the toupee from his head, she squealed with surprise. 

With a broad smile on his face, Sajak turned to the camera, exclaiming that he felt so free now that his secret was out. Vanna clasped the wig in her hands while Sajak wished the audience a“Happy April First.”


How to Recreate Pat Sajak’s Hairstyle

If you’re looking to recreate his look, check out the two great options: The NL638 grey hair wig and HS1V skin hair system.

Nl638 uses grey hair and the HS1V has several grey color options. Both of them are very similar to the one Pat Sajak wore on Wheel of Fortune.

Chuck Norris


Chuck Norris, an actor & American artist, began to show signs of male pattern baldness on-screen in the early 1990s.

He is known to conceal his head with wigs. During his peak years, this balding celebrity was very successful, yet it appears that he had no hair even then.

It would be thoughtful enough to blame his age, yet he is one of the most famous Hollywood figures to suffer from baldness.

John Travolta


Do we really need to introduce you to this legend who claims to keep his bald head because it ‘feels great’? His manner and demeanor have always been outstanding.

He even posted a selfie on Instagram about his ‘new appearance’ and how he was embracing his baldness at the start of 2019.

If you can pull it off, becoming bald is a great look, and having no hair shouldn’t make you feel insecure. If it does, it’s perfectly OK to wear a realistic hair system.

Daniel Craig


Daniel Craig is a famous actor in the Bond franchise, having starred in films such as Skyfall and Spectre.

He is also rumored to wear some kinds of hair systems since several photos have shown his thinning crown and receding hairline.

However, his acting career cannot be jeopardized by anything, including his male pattern baldness.

Tim McGraw


As one of the most well-known country music artists and popular actors in the world, Tim McGraw is recognized for his adoration for hats. He always appears in the public with all kinds of hats and baseball caps and there are many discussions about whether he’s bald or not.

Just as the public suspected, Tim McGraw didn’t wear the hat for the sake of fashion, but for his big forehead that he called it a “fivehead” as he confessed in an interview with People.

But as he’s getting older, he’s more comfortable with himself and started to appear in the public without hats. But he was also spotted with signs of going bald after that.

However soon, Tim McGraw is spotted with a new look that appears to be restored hair. Many believe that this is the result of hair transplants or wearing a toupee.

How to Recreate Tim Mcgraw’s Look

Tim doesn’t have a thick bed of hair, but rather good textured hair that his hairdresser appears to set with great skill.

A medium or medium-light density hairpiece is ideal for challengingTim McGraw’s style. HS1 thin skin hair system and HS7 French lace hair system are our recommendations.

All made of 100% genuine human hair, HS1 hair system features more natural hair roots as if the hair grows out from the scalp by using the v-loop technique.

Whereas HS7 hair system features a more breathable base that is comfortable for tropical weather and a more authentic hairline by using bleaching techniques.

He’s consistently had a receding hairline and a short haircut on television, understanding that his ‘signature appearance’ was his baldness.

 Nicolas Cage


Nicolas Cage, an Oscar winner, his bald patch on his head has attracted the attention from his fans and the media in recent years. But now he has a perfect full head of hair compared to his thinning hair before.

Most of his fans suspects he had a successful hair traplant surgery or wears a seamless hair system.

Hugh Laurie


Hugh Laurie, a talented and well-known British actor, comedian, singer, musician, and author that has won 3 Golden Globe awards and been nominated for dozens of awards. He’s undoubtedly a talented artist.

He had long been suffering from hair loss and appeared in the public with thinning crown.

However, in his hit TV series House, he has a full head of hair with no balding spots on his head.

Some believe he had a transplant, and there are voices that he wearing a hairpiece to hide the baldness.

Kevin James


Kevin With his acting skills, George Knipfing, better known by his screen name Kevin James, never fails to make us all chuckle. During the filming of one of his films, King and Queen, rumors circulated regarding this Hollywood actor’s hair loss.

During the filming of this film, he was said to be sporting wigs and toupees. However, even after the filming, his public appearances revealed his short haircut and thin hair.

Elton John


Elton John may have a full head of hair today at the age of 73, but he’s had his fair share of hair problems in the past. He first claimed that his hair began to fall out at the age of 30, prompting him to seek a hair transplant.

However, the transplant failed, and he was forced to wear shoddy wigs, which brought a lot of unwanted attention, with one journalist claiming that he looked like he was wearing a dead squirrel on his head.

He now wears toupees and is really pleased with the way they appear on him.

Elon Musk


Brendan Fraser


In various films, including “The Mummy” franchise, Brendan Fraser was recognized for his boyish looks and luxuriant locks.

As he grew older, however, he began to experience hair loss, with one image showing him severely balding from the top of his head due to extreme hair thinning.

He is thought to have had the problem fixed with a hair transplant or wearing a hair system since then. His hair is in better form now that he’s 52, yet his hairline has receded slightly.

And, based on his Instagram, Fraser appears to be following Kutcher’s lead by wearing hats more frequently.

Andre Agassi


Andre Agassi, the former Wimbledon champion, admitted in his autobiography Open that the long lion-mane hairstyle he wore in the 90s was actually a wig.

He was very unlucky, as he started going bald at 19, a very young age. At first, he was very self-conscious about his baldness and, hence, wore a wig in public appearances and during matches.

However, he was so worried about his wig falling off during tennis matches that he did not play his best game. Finally, Andre Agassi chose to stop using wigs anymore and shave his head instead, which helped him feel freer on the court and led him to even greater success.

Wigs and toupees are tools to help you achieve A BETTER YOU; they should never be the chains that limit you. Newtimes Hair is a wholesale human hair wigs distributor, but we do not believe that everyone who’s bald should use a toupee. We hope you only use one when it makes you look and feel better.

Jason Alexander


Jason is a well-known voice actor, musician, comedian, and filmmaker who is best known for playing George Louis Costanza on the Seinfeld comedy series. His baldness began while he was only 30 years old.

For many years, this Hollywood actor went public with his bald head until he was in his mid-50s when he started wearing hairpieces.

Jimmy Fallon


Jimmy Fallon, a household name in the US, is a famous American television host, comedian, and actor. He is known for his work in television as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live”.

Neither Jimmy Fallon himself has admited that he wears a toupee, not there has been any evidence suggesting that Jimmy ever wears a toupee. Discussions about whether he’s wearing wigs never stops.

The reason many people think he wears a toupee is his hairstyle has been so consistent for such a long time with little change. Actually, Jimmy made fun of his hair on several occasions in the past, and he had tried different wigs a few times just for the sake of acting.

Gene Simmons


Gene Simmons, who is currently 72 years old, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, and songwriter. Also known by his stage persona “The Demon,” he is the bassist and co-lead singer of Kiss, the rock band he co-founded with his partners.

A long time ago, an image of Gene Simmons wearing his bald cap prosthesis went viral on the internet. That is when people started realizing Gene Simmons’s hair is not real, and he has been wearing a wig to appear the way he used to when he was young. Years later, his band tweeted a photo implying that is really the case.

Ted Danson


Ted Danson, who is currently 74 years old, is an American actor and producer who played countless lead characters in many well-known movies and TV series, making him one of the top-earning actors in the US.

In an episode of the highly-recognized sitcom “Cheers,” he revealed his bald spot at the crown part while bowing. The scene quickly went viral, and the discussion regarding his hair was therefore ignited. In fact, he started wearing a hairpiece as early as the year 1982.

Actually, Ted Danson is one of very few actors that admitted being bald at the early stages of their careers and feel free to answer about it. The bald spot actually did not take a toll on his career but subtly added to his fame and reputation.

Ben Affleck



Hair loss is something that most male adults, even male celebrities.

  1. Hairtransplant x3
    You only go around once it’s the best thing I ever did for myself and let me be me for the last 15 years!!!!

  2. The most obvious to me is Pat Metheny. His philosophy is clearly GO BIG or go home. A ginormous hair system, his hair was thinning out 30 years ago….if you’ve got the money (and time) why not?

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

I’m into so many things. All the popular stuff you name: Swimming, badminton, running, all for keeping me in good shape.

They keep calling me “pretty Winni pretty brainy.” I’d take that as a compliment. I’d say I’m generally pretty fast in term of thinking and figuring out solutions. My teammates often turn to me for help, too. And It turned out that most of the time my ideas worked for them.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

  • Do you have a favourite quote?

When you feel tired,it means you are walking uphill. I believe this quote as a truth that gives me a lift whenever I’m down. I believe there’s no gain without pain. Without trying, we can’t achieve anything.

  • Which men’s/women’s hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
