Balding Goes Bad-Ass In Celebrity Hair Loss ArticleFebruary 25th, 2010
Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis sport “power alleys”
A hair transplant won’t be medically indicated in some patients. Hair loss treatments may not sufficiently restore fullness in every patient. But as an article in AOL’s Asylum.com makes clear, balding can be bad-ass.
Asylum.com reporter Brett Smiley interviewed Dr. Bernstein to get his take on hair loss and the balding pattern known as a “power alley”:
“Power alley is an accurate term for that type of balding,” says Dr. Robert M. Bernstein, a clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University and world-renowned hair-transplant surgeon. “It’s Norwood Class III balding, which is the most common type.”
“People with bald parents are the most susceptible to hair loss,” says Dr. Bernstein. “And it can happen at any age. I’ve seen patients in their late teens begin to lose their hair.”
Even though we have a healthy head of hair, Asylum pays homage below to the many successful men — from athletes to video-game characters — who have proudly sported the power-alley look.
The article cheekily describes the hair loss and “alleys” of several celebrities, including: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, “Iron Mike” Ditka, Jude Law, Danny Glover, ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., Florida Gators men’s basketball coach Billy Donovan, and everyone’s favorite virtual celeb, Pizza Pasta from Nintendo’s “Punch-Out!!”
