Has He Had a Hair Transplant?
Jude Law is one of the biggest British movie stars of the past twenty-five years. He’s played a diverse variety of roles in dozens of films, ranging from small arthouse movies to blockbuster hits.
One of Law’s biggest roles saw him step into none other than Michael Gambon’s shoes to portray a young Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts 2: Crimes of Grindelwald.
Being such a prominent figure in the movie industry means lots of media attention — and one subject cropping up again and again is Law’s hairline.
People seem to be fascinated by the changing state of Jude Law’s locks, and rumours of a hair transplant abound.
Of course, if Law really has undergone cutting-edge hair restoration surgery to restore a thicker, more youthful style, he’s not alone.
A number of celebrities across different fields of entertainment, sports and more, have either admitted to a hair transplant or been the subject of rumours.
Some people in the public eye are happy to discuss their hair restoration treatments, while others may feel more sensitive about it.
But when a star is open about their experience of hair loss and surgery, they could inspire other men to try the solution too.
And, as a result, help people feel better about themselves.
The Changing State of Jude Law’s Hairline
Over the years, Jude Law’s hair has changed considerably, like many men’s.
His v-shaped hairline has made his hair loss more obvious and harder to disguise.
In his younger years, though Law still had the widow’s peak he’s known for, he’s worn different styles to great effect.
From short and messy to long and foppish, Law’s hair has varied both for personal taste and film roles.
For example, in The Talented Mr. Ripley, Law wore a traditionally suave hairstyle that suited his character perfectly. Yet in Repo Men, his hair was shaved close to the scalp — a move that highlighted his loss more clearly than ever.
And, in Fantastic Beasts 2, Jude Law’s hair appears to be thicker than it has in some time.
It’s difficult to discern if Law has actually undergone a hair transplant or if the longer style simply suggests he has — after all, the v-shape is still as present as ever.
Regardless of the truth behind Law’s seemingly-fuller hairline, he’s always seemed confident despite his loss, just as a lot of other men do.
Yet thinning and baldness can actually take a real toll on people’s self-esteem, as this BBC article reveals.
One common coping mechanism is to just accept that balding is inevitable for some men, particularly those affected by Male Pattern Baldness.
Yet, there’s no need to just ‘grin and bear it’. Hair loss can be rectified with hair restoration surgery performed by qualified, experienced doctors equipped with state-of-the-art tools.
FUT Vs FUE — Differences and Benefits
There are different methods available to transplant hair: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
They’re both very different. FUT involves cutting out a strip of the scalp, usually measuring between 15 and 20 cm in length (according to the number of hairs required for the procedure).
The surgeons then remove the target follicular units from the strip carefully, to keep the follicles intact while being extracted.
These are then inserted into holes in those areas of the scalp affected by hair loss, distributed in a balanced way.
While hair transplant clinics still offer FUT, FUE is a much more popular and effective option. Why?
For one thing, FUT’s results are far less subtle: this process leaves scars on the scalp, making the signs of the transplant visible.
This limits the number of hairstyles you can choose in the future, which can be frustrating if you have a particular one in mind.
FUE, on the other hand, is completely different. HairPalace’s surgeons use an amazing handheld device — the FUE2 SafeScribe — to extract follicles from the scalp.
This leaves no visible scars and takes less time to heal.
A hair transplant performed using the FUE2 SafeSystem technique can benefit men of different ages and hair types, with the power to revitalise your entire look.
While baldness has little impact on many men’s self-confidence, others may feel as if they’ve lost a defining trait of their appearance and character.
The Importance of Choosing a Reliable Hair Transplant Clinic
Hair loss seems to have done Jude Law’s career no harm, but the media’s scrutiny of his hairline might have been irritating (to say the least).
Celebrities with Law’s star power and bank balance no doubt visit the most prestigious hair transplant clinics they can find, seeing money as no object.
Unfortunately, for the vast majority of men, the cost of surgical hair restoration is a massive concern — especially in the UK.
High-end clinics often charge vast amounts of money for a hair restoration procedure, which can be an obstacle for those on a tight budget.
One option for British men looking to undergo a hair transplant is to travel abroad. Turkey has seen an influx of people paying for cheap surgery, though the results aren’t always what they hoped for.
This can make further surgical procedures necessary to put mistakes right, leading to more expenditure and disrupted schedules.
It’s incredibly important that anyone considering a hair transplant chooses a reliable, reputable clinic.
