Some fast facts about Harry Connick Jr: he’s sold more than 25 million albums around the globe as a singer/songwriter, he’s a successful actor, he’s married to a Victoria Secret’s model, he’s rich and famous, and…he wears a hairpiece. You gotta love a guy who has achieved so much, is in the public eye, and wears a rug on his head. I would be super paranoid that everyone was looking at my hair, but not Harry. In fact, I think he has one of the best concealed bald heads in Hollywood. So you aren’t so sure he rocks a piece? OK… let’s look deeper.
To expose Harry’s secret you have to go back to his younger years, back when he first hit the scene in 1989. Take a look at the picture of Harry on his first album cover, notice the rather large temple recession? It’s pretty obvious Harry had the beginnings of a receding hairline. Going bald can be tough on a young guy, imagine how much worse it would be if you’re on your way to becoming super rich and famous. That had to have been a crushing blow to Harry’s ego. Well if it did crush Harry, he didn’t let it show.
He looks like he immediately started wearing a hairpiece to conceal his recession. It looks like Harry is wearing one of the newer hair systems, the ones that have the thin micro lace mesh. Look at the more recent pictures of Harry and you will notice right away that his temple recession is totally gone now. Looking closer you can make out the fine seam where his scalp and the lace wig are attached by an adhesive bond. I doubt it’s a hair transplant as the density and thickness are too great to achieve with surgery. His hairline looks unnatural and pluggy because it’s just that. I can only imagine what a nightmare it must be to keep up this act(I guess Enrique Iglesias could tell you). Harry has pretty much committed to a lifetime of maintenance routines to constantly keep his hair system looking the best it can be.
In the end, it’s Harry’s head and if he chooses to cover it up with glue, plastic and someone else’s hair, that’s his business. After all, this man is proof you can rock a wig and be enormously successful; not to mention get hot ladies. Harry, we salute your baldness and your secret is safe with us.
