Politics, Power and Male Pattern Baldness

David Cameron - High forehead the Belgravia Centre

In the midst of ‘recession’ – David Cameron

Several times since coming to power, Prime Minister David Cameron has been photographed showing signs of thinning at the crown. Some photos even suggest a growing bald spot – a classic sign of Male Pattern Baldness.

It has often been alleged that the stress of high-pressure jobs can have a negative effect on a man’s hairline, and David Cameron certainly seems to be illustrating that theory.

A precedent for Prime Ministerial hair loss?

Previous incumbents of the role of Prime Minister have had different experiences when it comes to hair loss.

Former Labour leader Gordon Brown appeared to survive his stint as the leader of the nation with relatively little ill-effect to his hairline – unlike his predecessor Tony Blair. Upon leaving 10 Downing Street, Blair’s hair was noticeably thinner at the temples, suggesting that his 10 years in power may have come at a cost.

Further back in time, the two previous UK leaders completed their tenures with hairlines intact. John Major served between 1990 and 1997, retaining a remarkably full head of hair when he left office. Margaret Thatcher spent more than 11 years in the top job and maintained the same bouffant hairstyle throughout (and beyond!).

More than just stress of the job?

Stress has been shown to be a major factor in certain hair loss conditions, but the thinning around the hairline and at the crown suggest that Cameron is experiencing Male Pattern Baldness (also known as Androgenic Alopecia). This condition is the most common cause of hair loss in men across the world and is actually caused by a genetic predisposition – so Cameron’s thinning hair may not be entirely related to the stresses of his role.

However, hair loss conditions such as Telogen Effluvium can be caused by excessive stress, so other men and women in similarly high powered roles may find that their hair begins to thin or recede during a particularly difficult time or incident.

Either way, it is important to obtain a proper diagnosis from a qualified hair loss expert, to identify the cause and the best possible hair loss treatment for the condition.
