There are many products that celebrities can endorse. The most popular tend to be watches, cars, makeup, and high-end liquors… And over the last few years, celebrities endorsing healthy skin and lifestyles like Proactiv, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, ect. has grown exponentionally. At the other end of the spectrum, it’s pretty rare to have a celebrity publicly admit that they were losing their hair and had hair restoration surgery….. But that is exactly what Joey Fatone and Christopher Knight have done.
For years, Joey struggled with thinning hair and male pattern baldness. But now he is showing off his new full head of hair. The 36-year-old ‘N Sync star credits Bosley hair restoration for his gorgeous mane in a new informercial. In a press release Joey stated “Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me.” Adding that “Back then, I was the only one in the group getting thinner on top. I became self-conscious and started wearing hats more often. That’s life, but the beautiful thing is that now you can do something about it.”
Also featured in the infomercial is Brady Bunch star Christopher Knight, who also credits hair restoration surgery for his new full head of hair. He even goes so far to say hair restoration surgery is “the best kept secret in Hollywood.”
Hair restoration surgeon, Dr Ken Williams, says “It’s wonderful to have a celebrity come forward and speak about their struggle with hair loss and having hair restoration surgery.” Williams continues, “I personally experienced significant hair loss and had hair restoration surgery as well. In April 2009, I had my first hair restoration surgery with over 2300 grafts harvested and placed in my frontal hair-line. Since then I have had two more smaller surgical sessions with a total of 4500 grafts transplanted to my frontal hair-line and mid scalp. I need an additional 2500 grafts to restore the crown of my head but I am thrilled with my results thus far.”
