Strictly Come Dancing star Jamie Laing’s hair transplant

POSTED: 10 November 2020

Jamie Laing is already making a great impression on Strictly Come Dancing where he is one of the attractive young male stars battling for the crown.

Jamie made his name starring on the reality TV show, Made In Chelsea.

It was on that E4 show that the blonde star revealed that he had undergone a hair transplant.

You can see the gentle scarring at the front of his scalp where the grafts were implanted in the middle picture below.

This would have been a couple of weeks after the procedure.

The startling difference the hair transplant has made to Jamie's appearance is illustrated in the other two pictures.

The one on the left shows Jamie before he had surgery.

As you can see, he is receding heavily right at the front of his hairline where it is most noticeable. His hairline is naturally quite far back and this problem has been 

exacerbated by male pattern baldness.

The picture on the right shows Jamie on Strictly Come Dancing with the transplanted grafts fully grown. He looks years younger and his appearance has been transformed.

Jamie is 32 and by that age around a third of men are experiencing some kind of hair loss. 

He is typicial of the new trend for men to seek help with hair at a younger age, particularly male celebrities whose careers depend on their looks.

Jamie will almost certainly have had a FUE (folllicular unit extraction) transplant. This is where the donor grafts are extracted individually from the back and sides of the scalp and replanted in the balding areas.

The advantage of this method is that the scarring is minimal.

Around 80% of our consultant hair transplant surgeon,  Dr Asim Shahmalak's patients at Crown Clinic opt for FUE.

These include Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd, Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and the former footballer Didi Hamann.

Dr Shahmalak also offers the more traditional method of hair transplantation, FUT (follicular unit transplantation).

This is where a strip of skin is surgically removed from the back of the scalp to obtain the donor hair. These are extracted from the strip by technicians under a microscope.

The grafts are then replanted in the balding areas in the same way as FUE.

The scarring is more noticeable with FUT so it is not suitable if you like to wear your hair short.

The TV doctor Christian Jessen has had two FUT procedures with Dr Shahmalak.

Jamie Laing has been very open about receiving help with his hair and spoke about the transplant on Made In Chelsea.

He has said: "We are in this climate where people don't talk about things, especially guys, and guys worry so much about losing hair.

"Why do we get hair everywhere else? Nose, cheat, face, and yet it falls off the place you really want it to stay?"

You're right, Jamie: it does fall offf.

But the beauty of a hair transplant is that it allows you to put it back on in the areas where you need it, as you show only too well.
