Steve Carell’s Hair Transplant & My Rant


Steve Carrell, I’m hungover. Yes. I try not to drink on weekdays but I fell victim to an outing with my wife’s work friends. And now I’m paying the price.

Needless to say, I’m not in the best of moods. And while surfing the internet, I stumbled upon this article about your hair.

Steve Carell's hair before his hair transplant.Listen Steve, when someone makes silly comments about hair it really chaps my hide. And when I have a headache to boot? Let’s just say my hide needs a can of chapstick this morning.

Showcasing your hair as an example of a hair piece shows me how ridiculous women can be. Here is my primary problem with the article:

  1. The article is written by a woman who has obviously never experienced male patterned baldness. It’s on for Christ’s sake.
  2. “Wigs. Rugs. Plugs. Bird’s nests. No matter what you call them, a hair piece is a hair piece is a hair piece.” Comments like this are totally wrong and an insult to my chosen career (Forensic Hair Scientist).
    1. A transplant is not a hair piece and doesn’t result in a pluggy look (this isn’t 1985 Cafemom).
    2. A hairpiece is not a hairpiece. They are hair systems and some are frontal systems, some full systems and some crown systems. Check out Johnny Depp’s hairpiece if you don’t believe me. How about Hugh Jackman’s?
  3. A hair system is not any worse than you bleaching the hair growing on your upper lip or waxing the hair around your buttocks. I’m pretty sure this author has some thick buttock hair and uses industrial grade bleach on her upper lip.

Furthermore, when did it become ok for women to point out men’s genetic failings? What would happen if I wrote a post called, “10 Celebs Who Have Saggy Titties”?  Would that be ok?

A woman writing an article about men’s hair loss is analogous to a white man telling racist jokes. The only difference is that one is racist and one is sexist.

Why can I get away with commentary about hair loss? Because I’ve been there. I’ve struggled with it. I’ve been depressed about it. I’ve spent thousands trying to prevent it and eventually 10’s of thousands fixing it.

Me joking about hair loss is like a Chinese guy saying Asians can’t drive. He can say that.

Steve Carell's hair after transplant.Steve, I’m sorry if I ruined this post about your hair. It’s just really annoying when women think a hair transplant is the same as a rug or plugs. Read the comments of that article. This chaps my burnt orange heinie as well. “I’m kinda bummed that my pretend-boyfriend, Steve Carell, is cheating in the hair department.”

Why is a hair transplant cheating? When the author went and paid for laser hair removal of the long curly hairs sprouting from her areolas, was that cheating?

Let’s talk about you, Steve Carrell. I’m done with my rant.

Your hair looks great. I’m pretty sure that my educated readers know what you’ve done. I’m a fan of your work and I think you’re very funny. The Office was great and Date Night was hilarious.

I’m guessing you had about 2000 FUE’s placed in your hairline and probably a follow-up session a year later consisting of another 1000 FUE’s. I’m curious to know who your surgeon was and if you’re happy with the result.

Other than that, I just want to say, keep up the good work. Make love not war. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.

PS – make sure you’re on Propecia (Finasteride). You don’t want any further recession behind the transplant. The reports of erectile dysfunction related to Propecia are way overstated. I’d be happy to prove this to Cafemom.

  1. I appreciate you for sharing your opinion. Now if you don’t mind, I will share mine. I understand if it offends you that this “Cafemom” was criticizing Steve Carrell for getting a hair transplant. Admittedly, I have not read the article, but it sounds like she was pretty offensive. It’s never nice when someone writes an article that criticizes someone for something out of their control, or for making the decision to fix something that they are self conscious about. But please understand that this is what female celebrities face all the time. They are constantly being judged about some aspect of her appearance, and then when she fixes the aspect, she’s ridiculed for “getting work done” or “not aging gracefully.” By no means am I saying male celebrities don’t face this kind of ridicule, but I think we can all agree that women are held to some extreme beauty standards. So your statement “when did it become ok for women to point out men’s genetic failings?” is a bit laughable. Men have been criticizing women’s genetic failings for quite some time now. Secondly, I understand that the article by Cafemom was especially frustrating for you, since she was talking about men with hairloss, and you are open about your own struggles with hairloss. But again, please understand that this is what women go through every day. Seeing articles that criticize a female celebrity for having a little cellulite is very frustrating and painful to read when you yourself have a few dimples. Thirdly, don’t say “make love not war” when your article is completely thrashing Cafemom. That is not love.

    And just one final note, I agree that Steve Carrell looks great, and I hope he too thinks he looks great and is happy with his decision. And I hope you are happy with your decision to fix an aspect of your appearance that you were unhappy with. Everyone should have that opportunity and not be judged for it.

    I hope I’ve helped you view this issue from a different point of view. If not, then oh well, that’s okay too.

    • I agree that women are ridiculed more than men. I’m not arguing that point. I’m simply pointing out that Cafemom is doing exactly what women hate for men to do; criticize genetic misgivings.

      For the record, I do not have one dimple or ounce of cellulite on my glorious body.

    • Well said. However, I think women criticize women more than men criticize anyone. Who is buying all the US Weekly’s and watching TMZ? I think we are on the same page – women, please stop criticizing everyone 🙂 Case solved.
