At the peak of his fame in the 1980’s, Adam Ant was somewhat unique. His punk-infused tunes and quirky good looks made him a magnet for his female fans and his image adorned many a young lady’s bedroom wall.
Now aged 58, the face may be the same but Ant’s hairline has all but disappeared, and as a result, he has resorted to wearing hats and bandanas to disguise his baldness. Talking about his hair loss in the Guardian newspaper, Adam Ant (née Stuart Goddard) said:
“I think to be a pop star you need sex, subversion, style and humour” – and the hair loss seems gratuitously cruel. “Yeah,” he admits with quiet sadness. “It was pretty awful.”
“But – I dunno – you’ve just got to do what you can. It’s part of the job, really. Just gotta get up, have a shave, and get on with it, really.”
Hair loss is not restricted to pop stars
Adam Ant may have had an out-of-the-ordinary lifestyle, but his hair loss is relatable to millions of men around the world. Unfortunately, many of these men also take the route of using headgear to hide receding hairlines and bald patches, unaware that there are successful treatments available to prevent and reverse hair loss.
By the age of 58, there is a 60% chance that a man will experience some form of significant hair loss making Adam’s baldness completely normal. However, with careful treatment and management of the underlying condition, he (and many other men experiencing similar symptoms) could have their ageing hair restored.
