Sy Sperling: An American Icon

When you think of some of the most famous, influential and recognizable people of the twentieth century, names like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, and Jonas Salk come to mind. However, while it might not seem reasonable to include a boy from the Bronx who made good in the hair loss business to a list of famous Americans that include the likes of Henry Ford or Irving Berlin, there is no doubt that Sy Sperling, Founder and former President of Hair Club for Men is a true piece of the fabric of American culture.

In 2000 Sy Sperling was made an offer he couldn’t refuse. He sold the brand that he built from the ground up for $45 million and was asked to sign a 15 year non-compete agreement due to his household name status. Well, Sy’s non-compete expired and he decided to reach out to Spencer Kobren and The Bald Truth to talk about his journey and to reveal what it was really like to be the most famous, hair restoration client on the planet.

‘s The Bald Truth is internationally syndicated through the GFQ Network
