AJ McLean
Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean previously took to Instagram to reveal he had undergone hair transplants, and shared some before and after pics.

Joey Fatone
After dealing with hair loss for some years, former NSYNC member Joey Fatone underwent hair transplant procedures. Joey himself confirmed the news in a Bosley infomercial, and opened up on the pressures of being a live entertainer. The hair restoration firm released a statement where Fatone explained: “Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me."
Gordon Ramsay
According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay underwent hair implant treatments in Beverly Hills, when he was spotted leaving a clinic "wearing a black surgical cap around his head". The publication added that the star had an allergic reaction to the procedure, as he was seen with a swollen face.
Cheyenne Jackson
‘American Horror Story’ actor Cheyenne Jackson posted a picture on Instagram last year, showing off a scar on his head. He captioned the snap: “No, this gnarly scar across my head isn’t from life-saving brain surgery, nor did I narrowly survive a shark attack. "It’s worse. I had hair transplant surgery. 5 of them, to be exact over 14 years."
Sir Elton John
In his autobiography ‘Me’, Sir Elton John recalled some of the hair treatments he underwent some years ago. Besides revealing that in the mid 70s he didn't have much hair left, the 'Rocket Man' singer said: “I had it done twice, and both times it hurt like hell."
Robbie Williams
Back in 2013, Robbie Williams revealed he first underwent the procedure simply because he was "bored". He told 'The Graham Norton Show': "I’ve lived in LA for a long time and they say, 'If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough you will get a hair cut'. "Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you’re going to get some surgery. I’ve had a thatch done and I didn’t even need it. That’s the weirdest thing. I had three months off and got bored." Meanwhile, last year he appeared on Clarke Carlisle's mental health podcast and revealed he was debating another "thatch" to battle his "thinning" hair. (©BANG Showbiz)

She said at the time: “I can't believe how well it's grown. I've just got so much more confidence and I've got my hairline that I always wanted. “I don't know why I didn't do this sooner to be honest but for any girl who wants to get it done, just go and get it done.”
Jimmy Carr
Comedian Jimmy Carr has opened up about his cosmetic procedures, includng a 14-hour hair transplant as he claimed working in television "made him vain". Appearing on the Chris Moyles show, he said: "[I] think it’s quite nice to talk about as a man because you sort of go, so many people get it and then deny it. "There are so many men in Hollywood, there are so many Hollywood leading men who have had a hair transplant that I know and they go 'No no I don’t know what you’re talking about… I just cut it… no no no.' Really? We’ve seen pictures of you!"
