Going for that all over shave might just be the best decision you ever make! We take a look at six superstars who went bald and have never looked better. Can you think of any other celebrities whose careers exploded when they went for the chop? Drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter!
Andre Agassi is widely considered to be one of the greatest tennis players the world has ever seen. He revealed in his recent biography that he’d been bald since his early twenties and that his famous lion-mane locks were in fact a wig. When he stopped wearing the wig and shaved his head instead, he proceeded to have one of the best years of his career – presumably because he stopped worrying about wig wardrobe malfunctions! We applaud his brave move.
Tough guy, Vin Diesel is best known for his roles in The Fast and Furious films and Saving Private Ryan. His shaved head adds to his ‘don’t mess with me’ persona and the idea of him with hair is a strange one. Have a look at the promo pics for The Last Witch Hunter (where he has hair and an off-the-wall beard) and you’ll see what we mean!
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
Sometimes being bald can be a big blessing if your previous hairstyle choices have been somewhat questionable. From crazy Sideshow Bob-esque curls to sideburns that would rival Elvis’s, The Rock definitely does it better when he’s bald.
With 482 kills in 21 movies, Jason Statham is one of the deadliest men around. Occasionally seen with some five o’clock shadow on his head, he often works the completely shaved look.
Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is the highest grossing actor of all time. Initially known for his role in Pulp Fiction, his career really took to the stratosphere after 1996 when he went for the bald look. These days his acting career has never looked better!
Here’s a celebrity that probably should have gone for the chop rather than the hair transplant! We reckon Wayne would have looked pretty tough working the bald look.
