James Spader’s Long and Strange Hair Loss Journey

James Spader enjoyed a lavish, complete head of hair well into his 40s. Then I keep in mind seeing him on The Office a few years back as well as believing, okay, James’ excellent hairline finally obtained put back a bit. However no big deal, he’ll preserve a relatively complete head of hair for the rest of his life, probably. Yet boy was I wrong! James Spader is now basically a bald man, and also this article will analyze his lengthy, odd trip to baldness.

what happened to james spader

James in the seminal 1986 film Pretty in Pink. Perfect, flowing, long hair.

I’m an older millennial. And I initially ended up being accustomed to James’ talent as well as range as an actor in the 2002 film, Secretary, starring Maggie Gyllenhall (as well as her amazingly unclean as well as shaggy, well, you understand). He was approaching his mid 40s then and also still showed up to have a complete head of hair. After that I viewed him on the TELEVISION show Boston Legal with well-known toupee-aficionado, William Shatner. An additional great program. The hair was still there, mostly, but in reality, I think he was starting to reveal signs of follicular distress, i.e. thinning, around this time around– possibly even sooner.

In the early 2000s, James’ hair never looked anywhere near that slim on movie or on tv, to my understanding. But we have to bear in mind that his hair was offered the full-on “Hollywood” treatment prior to all his flick as well as TELEVISION appearances. And those Hollywood hairstylist could function miracles, without doubt.

It’s additionally possible that James made use of a discreet hair system (toupee) of some kind to add density to his frontal, declining hairline. Charlie Sheen was known to use a hair system on Two and Half Men – and so was Jon Cryer, who remains in fact nearly completely bald.

James is a handsome SOB, hair or no hair. But his hairline truly doesn’t take a visibly upward turn until around 2010 or so, when he made a guest look on The Office.

Here’s James on his new show The Black List. He went from a mild type III to a full-on type 5, maybe even a 6 on the Norwood scale in just a few years! Remarkable. Very unusual, too.

Right here we go … As I state in my hair loss 101 message, males have roughly 20% of experiencing loss of hair in their 20s, a 30% possibility in their 30s, 40 in the 40s, 50 in the 50s, and more. And the majority of severe cases of male pattern baldness beginning when men are young, either in their teenagers or very early 20s. James is an exemption to that rule, plainly! He kept a full or reasonably full head of hair well into midlife. Currently, he has a fairly extreme case of male pattern baldness and is essentially a hairless guy.

He looks great hairless, certainly. He’s a handsome guy. However I’m surprised he didn’t take the transplant course, truthfully. The hairless head makes him look a solid years older, and also Hollywood is infamously prejudiced versus hair loss guys. Loss of hair does not matter in a lot of other occupations – but in that one, it typically does, sorry. In either case, I admire you, James!

Exactly what do you think about James’ odd hair loss course and also new look? Should he have chosen a hair transplantation? Is he past the proverbial defining moment as well as should he just hum it off entirely? Cast your ballot as well as leave a remark below.
