Not all famous men have a glorious head of hair! This list of public figures and celebrities who wear hairpieces is loosely ranked by fame and popularity and includes several famous actors, musicians, and athletes who are said to wear toupees and hairpieces. Some of these famous men have admitted to going bald, while others still deny that they are losing their hair. One professional athlete even credits his hairpiece as the main factor in losing an important match.

Who is the most famous person who wears a hairpiece? Charlie Sheen tops our list. Charlie Sheen has been rumored to wear a hairpiece for most acting jobs and public appearances. In 2014, Sheen's Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer admitted that he wears fake hair.

Professional tennis player Andre Agassi said that wearing a wig caused him to stress so much that he lost the French Open in 1990. "My wig was like a chain and the ridiculously long strands in three colors like an iron ball which hung on it," he wrote in his autobiography. Hugh Laurie is balding in real life, but on House he somehow had a full head of hair. Other public figures and famous people said to wear wigs include Ben Affleck, Kevin James, and Chuck Norris. Even male rock stars like Gene Simmons are on this list!
