  • John Hurt’s Bald New Look Makes Headlines

    Actor John Hurt recently shaved his head bald for a role he’s playing in the upcoming film An Englishman in New York, which is scheduled for release later this year. The film brings back Quentin Crisp, a character that Hurt played in the 1975 TV movie The Naked Civil Servant.

    Britain’s The Daily Mail celebrity gossip journal reported on Hurt’s new ‘do on its website Mail Online (, and included before and after shots showing Hurt with and without his hairline intact.

    In the before photo, it’s clear that Hurt’s hairline was already receding even before he shaved his hair all the way off, an indication that he’s presenting relatively mild and age appropriate male pattern baldness

    Hurt is one guy who can pull off a shaved head and actually look better. Plenty of hair loss sufferers, especially men, struggle with the choice of whether to go completely bald. While many options for hiding the effects of hair loss are available, including hairpieces and medical treatment, shaving it all off can be the quickest, easiest route.

    However, the shaved look isn’t for everyone. The biggest drawback is that this style doesn’t look good on most people. It also leaves the scalp exposed to weather, both sun and cold. Hopefully, actor John Hurt will remember to apply plenty of sunscreen this summer!

  • Hair Transplant Cost

    What is the average cost of a hair transplant?

    This is a good question. The hair transplant industry as a whole has developed a price scale based on cost per graft. The cost per graft range is between $3 and $8 with the average being around $4.50. With this said, there are some well known hair transplant surgeons who command upwards of $12 per graft and many patients are more than happy to pay the price.

    Today the average hair transplant session is around 2000 grafts, so if the average cost per graft is $4.50 than average cost of a hair transplant session will be approximately $9000.

    It’s important to note that most men will require more than one session and that most hair transplant clinics will lower the cost per graft as the session sizes become larger. For example clinics might charge $4.50 for the first 2000 grafts and $3 for each graft beyond the 2000 mark.

    Hair transplantation is not cheap, but financing is available and most clinics accept credit cards. The truth is that I have never spoken with a happy hair transplant patient who ever complained about price. Most would have paid double to achieve the positive life altering results that can be achieved with today’s state of the art hair transplants.
