Always quick to zero in on the hair loss of celebrities, the Daily Mail recently ran an article with accompanying pictures about actor Hugh Laurie’s hair loss. The newspaper compared the full head of hair he recently sported in an episode of hit US medical drama House, with pictures of him attending the recent premiere for his new animated film, Easter Bunny. In the latter, Laurie can be seen with a substantial bald spot on his crown, while talking to co-star Russell Brand.
Laurie has of course always been open about his hair loss, and has made little effort to conceal it over the decades. Camera trickery and the magic worked by make-up departments is also nothing new, with a hairpiece or temporary ‘shake-on hair fibres’ amongst the most likely solutions in covering up the actor’s hair for the show. As Laurie has been pictured au naturel in public many times, it seems most likely that this cunning act of concealment was initiated by the show’s creators rather than the actor itself.
A case of Male Pattern Baldness
At age 51, Laurie’s hair loss is far from unusual, and statistics suggest that up to two thirds of all men in the UK will experience Male Pattern Baldness at some point in their lives. Also known as Genetic Hair Loss and Androgenic Alopecia, the hair loss condition can affect men at any point from their early twenties onwards. A genetic predisposition to hair loss can be passed on from either side of the family, and it is the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone which inhibits the production of new hair by the affected follicles, leading to hair loss and in some cases baldness.
Laurie, the one-time comedy partner of Stephen Fry, appears comfortable with his hair loss, and has not apparently sought hair loss treatments like fellow film and television stars James Nesbitt and John Travolta. However many men prefer not to let nature take its course, and would like to obtain treatment to re-grow their hair.
