Jason Alexander, of Seinfeld fame, left fans pleasantly surprised as he made a recent appearance with a brand-new hairline, which seemed to have perfectly disguised his famous bald spot. The curiosity of his fans knew no bounds, as the web was bombarded with endless questions about Jason’s mystery hairline.
Did he get a hair transplant? Is he sporting a wig? Did he suddenly grow hair out of nowhere? Before any random conclusions could be made, Jason made use of the favorite medium of stars to clear the air of controversies, Twitter.
He tweeted that he is wearing a hairpiece, which was partially transparent, and gave him the natural look that he had a few years back. He explained that he did not opt for anything too heavy since he didn’t want to have an artificial mop of hair on his head, but instead wanted to look like a man who was losing hair naturally.
In a candid revelation, the star went on to talk about his struggle with balding, which he says started years ago, when he was just 17. He recalls being sad initially, but later embracing it, and looking at the positive side of it, which was that he got cast in roles that were more mature and serious than his age.
Describing the sudden hair loss he has had over the past two years as ‘dorky’, Jason said that he and his wife sat down and discussed the problem, and came up with three solutions. The first was to accept the baldness as it was. Apart from not liking the way he looked, Jason explains that there were also practical manifestations, since the bald head acted as a beacon, reflecting light, which affected shooting.
He also considered undergoing a grafting procedure, but wasn’t sure about its safety, so he finally chose this semi-transparent headband, which he can wear for weeks together.
