Here's a look at some famous men who started to go bald but were able to prevent it with a little help. These handsome celebrity guys have a secret for turning their worst hair into the best hair. There is never any way to be completely sure of how they grew hair back. We just have to assume that their path to baldness was aided by science, because most human beings don't lose hair and then miraculously get it back.

Hair transplants require serious surgery, but for many, it drastically improves their lives. There are different treatments, like hair plugs and actual transplants. It makes you wonder if you could start a business as a professional hair donor. You'd have to have long beautiful hair if you'd want to stick it onto actors, athletes, and musicians who look more like "after" pictures than "before." But if you don't, maybe you could find a market for non-famous baldies looking for hair.
