Celebrity Toupee Wearers

There seems to be a lot of interest about celebrity toupee wearers. This is no doubt an interesting subject and one that we'll look at closely here. Do you think you can tell whether or not someone is wearing a toupee? Some of the celebrities we will show here are certainly wearing wigs and it's been no secret. Others we will see we're not so sure about. I'll need your help to vote on these to help us determine whether these celebrities hair is real or fake. We are not making fun of people here. Just showing the the people are real men just like anyone else and battle the same life problems that others do. Ready for the fun? Here we go.

Bret Michaels Toupee

Bret Michaels has been a popular male celebrity lately. He's been on The Celebrity Apprentice which I think he won. He is an outspoken advocate for the fight against diabetes, a disease in which he suffers from. He also got really sick with a brain aneurysm from which he miraculously recovered from. Bret Michaels also appeared recently this summer on Good Morning America and their summer concert series as he interviewed alongside Miley Cyrus of Hannah Montana fame and then the two of them sang his hit song from his Poison rocker days, Every Rose Has a Thorn. Brett had some photos taken of him in the hospital that seem to be missing his long blond hair from the side. Also, you never see Brett without his hair bandanna or his hat. Perhaps, Bret uses his trademark bandanna as a way to conceal his hairline. It's not a bad idea and fits him well since he's a rocker dude.

How to Spot a Toupee

Burt Reynolds Toupee

Burt Reynolds is getting pretty old these days. When I was a kid he was really popular and starred in movies like "Smokey and the Bandit" and "The Longest Yard" just to name a couple. He was one of the world's biggest box office stars for a number of years. Burt Reynolds also was involved with a number of different women including movie actress Sally Field and TV star Loni Andrews. His divorce from Loni Andrews was bitter and was in the tabloids for quite a while.

It's been fairly well known that Burt Reynolds has been a celebrity toupee wearer for a long time. It would be interesting to see what Burt would look like without the hair. I guess it's difficult for someone who's looks have played such an important part in their success in life to accept becoming bald. I've found a couple of pictures here of Burt Reynolds sporting some of these toupees.

Elton John Toupee

It's been long known that big time rock star Elton John has been a toupee wearer. You can see an early picture of him here wear he is much younger and going bald. Maybe he was singing "Benny and the Jets" here. That was a great song. You can see his thick hair on the sides and thinning on the top. The more recent photo of the older Elton John below shows a full head of hair that is most certainly a wig and makes him a celebrity toupee wearer. I wonder what Sir Elton would look like with just a plain shaved head and a little goatee beard type thingie going on? It might look cool. He's pretty old now and has all the money he could ever need I'm sure. I doubt anyone would really care about his hair very much at this point in his life. He's getting pretty old now.

Chuck Norris

It is also widely believed that the great action hero actor Chuck Norris also wears a toupee. Chuck is a good guy that broke into acting after a successful martial arts artist. He appeared in movies with the legendary Bruce Lee and then later on in the late 1990s had a very successful show called Walker Texas Ranger that ran for about eight years and now seen in over 80 countries world wide in syndication. Chuck is also a conservative activist which is unusual in Hollywood circles. Chuck Norris also became even more popular recently as jokes about his toughness have gone viral as they say across the internet. Here are a few pictures of Chuck and his hair situation.

John Cryer

John Cryer is a talented actor that I first remember appearing in the 1980s movie Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald. He later hit it big in the hit CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men opposite Charlie Sheen who was later replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Cryer readily admits that he has very little of his own hair left. I think the John Cryer with hair look is much better. Wouldn't you agree?

      Elton John wears a full wig. A hair transplant would never look like that.

    • profile image 7 years ago

      There is no hair transplant ever invented that could give you the full head of hair Elton John has. It is a "hair system" "toupee" "wig" whatever you choose to call it and it keeps him looking young. ROCK ON ELTON

      Elton John doesn't wear any toupee. During the late 70's and 80's, he had several hair transplant operations. And it was actually his own hair, that he was growing on the back of his head. They cut it and transplanted it on the top and front of his head.
