Elton John – Musician with a Wig or Hair Transplant
Sir Elton Hercules John is a British born, gay musician. He often wears spectacular glasses on stage and is totally bald underneath his wig or hair piece.
Elton married long time partner David Furnish after same sex marriage was legalised in Wales and England in March 2014, they married 9 months later and had 2 sons via surrogacy.
So what exactly is going on with Elton John’s hair? Is it a hair transplant, some kind of hair weave or a combination of both?
The cost of a hair transplant is not going to worry the likes of Sir Elton and i’m sure he would be up with all the latest hair replacement procedures but if he doesn’t have enough donor hair at the back of his head left then it’s got to be, wait i’m afraid to say this…Glued on hair!
Fellow British musician ‘Rod Stewart’ once said that Elton John’s hair is quote “It’s been sewn. It’s sewn on” as reported in the Mirror UK in 2015.
