Hair Transplant or a Hair System?

Why Jude Law has been wearing a partial hair system in the movie Spy (2015)?

  • Jude’s hairline is more defined and his corners look less receded 
  • He has been interviewed for the same movie in 2015 with and without hair system (which makes the difference obvious)
  • The artificial hair from the hair system looks more straight and has a brighter shade compared to Jude’s natural hair color and hair texture
  • After looking at photos of Jude Law between 2016 – 2020, his hairline looks as receded as it used to before 2015

Is Jude Law on Finasteride or Minoxidil?

Minoxidil and Finasteride were never likely a part of Jude’s hair loss prevention regimen.

Although he might have given Minoxidil or Finasteride a try, it´s unlikely that he was on any of these treatments long term.

He doesn’t seem to be a fan of hair transplant either, otherwise he would have already gotten one in conjunction with FDA approved treatments for hair loss to maximize his results.

After looking at his hair loss history though, it seems like he never tried to slow down his hair loss otherwise he would have likely been more successful.

Is Jude Law a good hair transplant candidate?

Although Jude Law doesn’t seem to show much interest in hair restoration, he clearly shows several signs of a good hair transplant candidate.

1. He has a virgin donor area (not affected by any previous hair transplant)

2. He seems to have straight/wavy hair type and rather thick hair caliber which both contribute to achieving an optimal result after hair transplant

3. His donor area (sides and back of his scalp) show no signs of thinning and the hair in these areas is rather strong and thick

4. He doesn’t have any hair loss on the vertex area (crown of the head)

5. Jude has a solid body hair density underneath his chin. Such body hair could be additionally utilized for hair restoration (in cases when patients don’t have enough donor hair at the back of the scalp)

6. Based on the hair on his sides and back, I estimate his hair per graft average to be rather high. Having high hair per graft average means having many hairs coming out of each graft (hair unit) on average. Normally, candidates with higher hair per graft average tend to get superior and denser – looking results.
