Wayne Rooney tops poll for best celebrity hair transplant

POSTED: 19 September 2014

There has been a 25% surge in the number of men having hair transplants over the last two years

At Crown Clinic, we have benefited from this trend with lots of new clients coming through our doors. 

A big factor in the increase has been the willingness of celebrities such as Wayne Rooney and Crown Clinic's client Christian Jessen to be so open about their procedures.

Men see these stars showing no embarrassment about having a procedure and think, 'Well if it is good enough for them, it is good enough for me.'

They see how much better stars look with a full head of hair and realise that they don't have to put up with their own baldness.

We thought it would be fun at Crown Clinic to do some research and find out which stars have had the most popular transplant.

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney came top of the crops in our poll, followed by the actor James Nesbitt and Christian Jessen from Embarrassing Bodies.

You can read more about the survey here:


Our surgeon Asim Shahmalak said it had taken a lot of guts from Rooney to come forward and be so open about both his FUE hair transplants.

Dr Shahmalak said: "He must have feared he would get stick at matches for having it done but this hasn't happened.

"Most people just think, 'Good for you, Wayne - you look so much better.'"
