Some of the biggest celebrities in the world used to sport a full head of hair but are now bald. And while stars can afford pretty much any treatment available, sometimes it’s just down to genetics. Bald celebrities make many feel better because it shows, deep down, that they’re just like us!
Still, picturing iconic bald celebrities with flowing locks can be challenging. For instance, can you believe that once upon a time, the likes of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis had hair? Well, it’s true! Don’t believe us? We have the pictures to prove that these bald celebrities once rocked some hair…
1. Samuel L. Jackson
Legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson likes to experiment with his hair, especially if the role calls for it. For instance, he sported a curly ‘do in Pulp Fiction and an incredible afro in Unbreakable. However, in real life, Jackson has lost his locks. Still, the actor took the change in stride. “Being bald is something you can’t avoid, so why be afraid of it? I just rolled with it,” he said.
Jackson’s longtime wig consultant, Robert L. Stevenson, helps him develop Jackson’s film looks. “He was losing his hair at one point and said, ‘if I just shaved it all off, could we still create looks with wigs?’ I said, ‘Sam, we can basically do anything with wigs.’ That’s when we started getting into it,” Stevenson remembered.
