Money can’t buy you everything. Even if you have a couple of billion dollars in the bank there are things in life that will make you as ordinary as the homeless dude on the corner. The billionaire cast of Shark Tank can attest to at least one of those things. Going bald.
Each male cast member is afflicted with some degree of hair bankruptcy.
Kevin O’Leary: This Daddy Warbucks look a like is the most follicly challenged billionaire of the bunch. He likes to be called Mr. Wonderful to satisfy his huge ego and he is quick to call you a cockroach if he thinks you are a loser. If having hair was a business then Kevin’s head is out of the deal.
Daymond John: A self made billionaire from the hood, Daymond might be the only Shark who is bald on purpose. Part of his empire is in the world of hip hop where the shaved head rules supreme. We did find a few pictures of Daymond with some peach fuzz growing on top but it looks like he’s receding. He rocks the bald look like a boss.
Robert Herjavec: This nice guy billionaire seems to take great pride in his appearance. He’s usually sympathetic to the struggling entrepreneurs that are looking for his financial help. He appears to be aggressively combating his thinning dome. Robert has the classic temple recession on each side of his hairline with the longer grown out hair style used for camouflage. His hairline seems to have grown in over the past several seasons of the show making me think he’s had some work done. It could be crafty lighting and makeup but I’m not so sure. It’s more likely he had a hair transplant from a top doctor to keep further hair loss in check.
Mark Cuban: Love him or hate him Mr. Cuban is a man who doesn’t hold back. Out of all the Sharks I’d say Mark is the one who has the best kept secret. It looks like he’s slowly been replacing what he’s lost over the years making it difficult to notice he’s been losing his hair. Looking at older pictures of Mark his hair looks like it’s thinning rather than receding, especially images where there is direct sunlight exposing his scalp. Fast forward to today and his hair is thicker, likely the results of a hair transplant. He also appears to dye his hair dark black. This covers his grey but it also gives the illusion of thicker hair. He also styles his hair in a way that seems to strategically cover certain areas.
Last April Cuban starred in an AT&T Uverse commercial. At the end of the commercial he is sitting in a chair with a lamp directly over the back of his head exposing a huge bald spot.
Believe me if there was a cure for baldness these guys would be all over it. No matter what the cost.
