Jimmy Clausen QB for Notre Dame

This one is a bit sad to report because he is balding so rapidly at such a young age. Then again, Jimmy Clausen, starting quarterback for Notre Dame seems to have a promising career, so I shouldn't feel too bad for him. Especially after yesterday's win, a last minute drive that gave the Fighting Irish a 24-21 win over Purdue, his career seems to be the least of his worries. And with an NFL contract and more money than he can count, Jimmy can buy hair plugs or a nice collection of hair pieces.

Here you can see his hair is thinning on top and a bald spot starting on the back of his head.

And below you can see that his hair is thinning in the front as well.

Drew Brees!

Quarterback from the New Orleans, Drew Brees, seems to hide behind the football helmet, hats, and a front combover. But those are all tell-tale signs of a baldie in hiding. So Drew, we have found you and are outing you.

See the sides of the front receding in the above picture. Below you can see the front sides have receded and he is combing the hair forward to hide the thinness in the front.

Ant and Dec!

I received an email with the title "British Baldies" and I was intrigued. The email, from reader Alex, had the great shot below of Declan 'Dec' Donnelly on the left (thinning) and Anthony 'Ant' McPartlin on the right (receding), two tv personalities in the UK. They present Saturday night entertainment shows. And they put on another show of their own each night, hiding their hairlines.

Alex writes: "Note how Dec does the thinking look which causes lines in the forehead and makes receding and bald hair appear less severe." Good eye Alex! They should try to always have Jude Law on the show so that by comparison their hairlines look full.

Flo Rida!

When the word hairline appears in Twitter's trending topics, my eyes and ears perk up. So when I saw it was Flo-rida - one of hip-hops most popular artists - I knew I had to post immediately. The Twitter trending topic is a result of his appearance at tonight's Emmys. Here he is at the show:

And here's a few other pics of him from different angles:

Tony Bennett!

Stating the obvious. I know. But I still have to post about the obvious. Tony Bennett has been a toupee wearer for longer than I have been alive. If there was a toupee hall of fame he would be one of the first inducted. Without further delay, Tony Bennett and his many toupees:

Quiet Riot lead singer Kevin Dubrow

Guess it isn't the same headbanging with a bald head...

In the above pics you can see the hair clearly just sitting atop his head. Also, compare the texture, thickness, style to his real hair. The below picture is from a 1984 concert. You can see the frontal balding and thinness on the top of his head.

Happy Birthday Tommy Lee Jones and Oliver Stone!

Happy birthday to two of Hollywood's most talented baldies!

RIP Patrick Swayze

Sad news today :(

From the Washington Post:

Patrick Swayze, 57, an actor who enjoyed success in Hollywood as the snake-hipped charmer of "Dirty Dancing" and a romantic lead from beyond the grave in "Ghost," died Sept. 14, his publicist reported from Los Angeles. He had pancreatic cancer.

Gary Sinise!

Lieutenant Dan is balding! (Well so is Forrest Gump)

Thanks to reader Lauri V. for the email on this one. Her email title read: CSI: Bald York. More to come on Gary Sinise's co-stars on CSI: New York. For now let's focus on Gary. Here's a picture of him in June 2008 at the GI Film Festival:


Clearly, he is balding on the front of his head. This shot has a nice shot of the thinner hairs up front, as well as the receding hair line. And if you have seen CSI: New York, then you have noticed how his hair line magically grew, and how his hair mysteriously thickened. Here he is on the show:


And I did a bit more digging into Gary Sinise, and noticed that in his more recent public appearances he seems to be wearing a front piece, perhaps he "borrowed" it from the CSI set.


This picture is from Gary's band, Lt. Dan Band's show on April 17, 2009. About a year after the top picture. Hmmm.

Travis Barker!

Thanks to reader Blue Gold for bringing this to my attention (and all the others you have tipped me off to!!). Blue Gold noticed Travis' hairline as he attended DJ Am's funeral recently:

As Blue Gold writes "We know why he wears a baseball hat all the time." Yes we do. I took a look at older pictures of Travis, the drummer from Blink 182 (also had a reality show on MTV called "Meet the Barkers") and noticed his hairline has been receding for quite some time. Who knew!

Travis in 1993.

You can see early on the sides of his hair were receding. And in the top picture you can see how it is now. He does have hair on the top of his head, but you can clearly see 2 things: 1) the sides still appear to be receding and 2) the hair on the top definitely looks thinner than the hair in the back. Wear all the hats you want Travis Barker, we already know the truth!

Jonny Lee Miller!

Thanks to reader Lauri V. for the tip on Jonny Lee Miller. You first heard this guy's name about 13 years ago when his name was Mr. Angelina Jolie. That's right he was Angelina's first husband. Before Billy Bob. Before Brad Pitt. Before all the kids. Since then he has been in Trainspotting, Æon Flux, and most recently starred in the title role of tv show Eli Stone. It seems that he has been losing his hair for quite a few years, and that sometimes he hides it and sometimes he just lets the truth show. Here he is in 2005 at the Æon Flux premiere:

Totally balding. Then here he is in 2009, in one picture he has a possible hair piece, in the others he is covering up the hair line.

August 2009

On the set of Eli Stone - hair is combed forward and style to hide the balding patches.

Sienna Miller and Jonny taking a break in New York City - the wind always reveals the truth!

Steve Harvey! Case Closed!

Thanks to reader Marques J. who submitted the contents of this entire post. His email included all the pictures and such a good description that I'm posting it as I received it:

"Remember all those mongering rumors of Steve Harvey shaving his head? Remember those mongering rumors about his alleged hairpiece?

Well folks, say what you will, but the real funniest thing about Steve that big, bright, light shining on the back of his head, aka his big bald spot! This was taken from one of his early stand-up comedy shows during the early-to-mid '90s.

And here's a pic of the back of his head from an episode of "The Steve Harvey Show."

Notice the lack of a bald spot in this pic. Even funnier thing is that Judge Greg Mathis is calling him Steve Highwire, because apparently even he knows that Steve not only had his hairline painted on but the funnier part is that highwire weave-hairpiece that he had sewn into his head!

The other giveaways were that in those early pics of him, you can tell that he was losing little bits of some of his hair in the front and that straight hairline in those pics of him from "The Steve Harvey Show."

And here is his most recent pics of him nowadays with a shaved head!

Steve, good for you that you finally ditched the piece, BUT...even before you shaved your head we all knew all along you were fakin' the front the whole time!!!"
