Floppy-haired movie icon Robert Pattinson caused a stir when he appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ popular talk show with a radical new haircut. The 24-year-old star of the Twilight franchise became a heartthrob to teenage girls everywhere with his pale, moody good looks and tousled locks.
When questioned about his new hairstyle on the show, which aired on May 19, Pattinson joked: “I got a terrible infestation of nits and had to shave it all off!” before admitting that it was actually for a role in his upcoming film, ‘Water for Elephants’.
It may seem crazy that a discussion about some guy’s haircut can command the airwaves on prime time TV, but such is our obsession with celebrity these days that the hairstyles of the rich and famous really can become news. However, the underlying association of Pattinson’s thick mane of hair with youth and virility may feel a little uncomfortable to men who are beginning to experience thinning hair or a receding hairline at a relatively young age.
Androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness, is hereditary and affects 25% of men by the age of 30. It results from the action of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormonal derivative of testosterone, which gradually causes hair follicles to become dysfunctional.
However, there are effective steps that can be taken to stabilise hair loss and promote regrowth. The Belgravia Centre’s individually designed hair loss treatment courses are based around primary medications that are clinically proven to stabilise hair loss and promote regrowth.
Propecia and Minoxidil are the only products that are licensed by the MHRA, and FDA approved, due to the weight of evidence that they are both effective and safe. Monitored closely by a hair loss specialist and used alongside effective hair growth boosters, a specially tailored and combined treatment course will prevent and reverse hair loss in most cases.
