Elton John is a legendary rock and roll icon. He's one of the most accomplished performers we have ever seen. From his 1970's era crazy outfits and Benny and the Jets type songs, all the way to his Disney songs for the animated movies like The Lion King, Elton John has been a very successful person in his professional career. It's also well known that Sir Elton John wears a hair piece or toupee. I guess that as a rock and roll icon that he figures that he needs to have hair on his head to keep up his rock star image. He has had some wild outfits and eye glasses in the past and he has worn a variety of different hair pieces as an older gentleman. For the most part, these hair pieces look pretty good. Here's to the rockin' legend, Elton John and his famous topee wearing image. Rock on Elton.

There are no doubt quite a few famous toupee wearers across the world and certainly here in the United States where I live. The wearing of a wig or toupee or hair piece or hair system or whatever you want to call it is the choice that a lot of men choose to do when the dreaded male pattern baldness sets in. At least, that would presumably be the main reason that most of these people go bald. For many men, famous men included, it's can be distressing to begin to lose their hair. For many, it can effect their self esteem and make them feel less attractive. In many cases, going bald can make a man look a lot older than he really is. Now there are other hair loss options available these days, including new and improved surgical techniques that can really work wonders. For many, the toupee is still the most affordable and quickest way to get back a full head of hair. This website will take a look at some famous toupee wearers and discuss how they look. Some are very obvious and well known that they are wearing hair pieces. Other people shown here, well there may be some debate about whether these guys are wearing a toupee or not. We'll let you the reader decide what you think by casting your votes in our polls. This site is really just for fun and amusement. We're not trying to cut people down here or ridicule anyone for there hair or lack of hair.

To being our list of famous toupee wearers, I've chosen one of my favorite actors, John Travolta. I first became a fan of his when he starred back in the 1970's as the lovable yet not to smart high school kid named Vinnie Barbarino. He became very popular because of that TV show which was called "Welcome Back Kotter" and starred Gabe Kaplan and others. Travolta began to get movie roles and starred in the megahot of the disco era, "Saturday Night Fever". There were other roles too such as "Urban Cowboy." There were some down years for a while for John Travolta as there was a backlash of anti-disco sentiment for a while. Travolta revitalized his career as a hit man in the movie "Pulp Fiction" and he has been going string ever since. Travolta is a licensed pilot and is also married to the lovely actress, Kelly Preston. He's had some trying times fairly recently as his son died but I'm also pretty sure that his wife gave birth to another son just recently. Anyway, Travolta even appeared in one movie bald with a goatee beard so I'm pretty sure that his hair loss is no big secret anymore to anyone. I'm not sure if he plans to stay bald or clean shaven or maybe wear a toupee for the occasional movie role. Anyway, bald or not, John Travolta is a very successful man and seems to have a lot going for him.
Marv Albert is a legendary sports announcer. In fact, he is probably the most well known NBA announcer. I think that Marv does a great job announcing basketball games. I like to do impressions of him sometimes when I'm playing around with my kids. "Yes, and it counts!" That's one of his favorite things to say when a player makes a three point play. Anyway, Marv is also a long time toupee wearer. Marv wears a wig but it hasn't let it slow him down in the slightest. You can see Marv doing his thing and getting well paid for it on TV. Good work Marv Albert and nice wigs, well maybe not.

Andre Agassi wrote a tell all book that revealed admitted abuse of the drug known as "crystal meth." In his book he also tells how he was used the wrong conditioner at his tennis match right before the finals of the French Open. He was scared his hair was gong to fall off during his tennis match. How could he possible concentrate on his tennis game if he was afraid of his hair falling off.? His hair, by the way, was not just a regular hair piece but a mega piece. It was a huge mullet type hair piece. Take a minute to watch the above video of him on David Letterman if you haven't watched it yet. It's short and he talks about his hair.I guess it went with his whole rebel image. Remember all those Canon Rebel camera commercials he was in? Anyway, Agassi was of course once married to Brooke Shields and they divorced and he married pro tennis player Steffi Graff. They have at least one little boy I know of because he he was in a television commercial. I bet that kid is going to be one heck of a tennis player with the parents he has.

Brett Michaels rose to fame as the lead singer for the band Poison. His hair and all the band members hair fro that matter seemed to be a big part of their image. More recently Bret Michaels has been on television on reality shows like the VH1 show "Rock of Love" where some not too respectable women compete for his "love". He also appeared on the "Celebrity Apprentice" in NBC and I watched him on that show. He seemed like a smart guy and did very well on that show as I recall. He was always wearing his trademark hat and bandanna. This is no doubt part of his rocker persona. According to interviews Michaels gave he pretty much admits that his hair in the back that comes out long from his hat is extensions. He also says that he does have thin hair and a receding hair line. He also says that if and when he thinks he needs to get "hair plugs" that he will. So, Brett Michaels may not be a famous toupee wearer but still may be a famous hair extension wearer I guess. Anyway, Rock on Bret!
