Steve Carell!

Between seasons 1 and 2 of his hit show The Office, Steve Carell seemed to lose weight and gain hair.

Season 1:

Season 2:

So he either got hair plugs or wears a hair piece. I think he wears a piece. In the below pictures you can see his hair line better. It looks like there is a hair piece resting on the top of his head.


  1. Definitely a wig. He was totally going bald in season 1. He lost a lot of weight and each season, he has more hair!

  2. I wish I could find a better picture but he's good at hiding it!

  3. looks like he's just styling it differently to me. i have diffuse thinning in my hairline, and when i comb it to the side it looks fuller/healthier

    1. The reason his hair line looks different in these two pictures is because the bottom one is a fresh hair cut. you can tell by the sides of his head. the hair is longer in the first comparison picture and shorter in the second. Duh.

  4. It's hard to say; wasn't he in little miss sunshine? there was a part where he was running in the wind, and it certainly looked like hair; though there's obvious receding.

    In one shot, when he was in the hotel I believe, he was putting something in his hair. Maybe that helped?

  5. He's had plugs. He was going bald just before "sunshine." Watch the "pier" scene in "sunshine." The wind blows and you can see how much he was losing and you can see the plugs.

  6. He wore a piece to make it look like he was balding for season 1 of The Office because that was the image they thought he should have, after his character was more developed they decided to lose the fake balding.

  7. He indeed is wearing a piece now, or at least hair translplants. Here's his cameo on Just Shoot me in the 90's, you can tell he's losing it then.

  8. whatever it is... he looks awesome now :)

  9. Hmmm...crazy idea coming from me but maybe:

    He chose to lose weight AND got that rogaine stuff?
    The transformation is cool to see!

  10. He had plugs. It's fairly common knowledge. He also lost 20 pounds for some film work, and has kept it off.
