Bruce Willis Bald

There are plenty of bald celebrities in the world, including bald Hollywood actors, musicians, athletes, and more. Celebrity baldness has rarely led to a celeb stepping away from the limelight. In fact, in many cases, it has only boosted their appeal! A bald head can look really striking and attractive, which is good news for all the bald actors and regular folk out there.

What Causes Baldness?

Bald celebrities are ordinary people, meaning they experience hair thinning and balding like the rest of the population. Baldness can be caused by various factors, from genetics to . Less commonly, hair loss can also be caused by cancer treatments like chemotherapy and injury to the scalp, known as traumatic alopecia.

How Common is Celebrity Baldness?

If you think about it, there are many bald-headed actors, singers, and athletes. As celebs are regular people, it’s just as common in them as it is for everyone else. It’s particularly common in men, with male pattern baldness affecting two-thirds of men at some point in their lifetime. Of course, not every actor who experienced hair loss embraces it – some of them opt for solutions like a hair transplant. Celebrities like Wayne Rooney, Gordon Ramsey, and Matthew McConaughey have all opted for this surgical treatment.

Famous Bald Celebrities

Below are the most high-profile celebrities who are bald, from bald Hollywood actors to incredible athletes.

Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis is a famous bald man who’s rocked a bald head for most of his career. His hair loss became obvious when he starred in “Death Becomes Her” (a 1992 comedy also starring Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn), and following that, he decided to shave his head completely. It certainly worked for him – Willis graced the big screen multiple times throughout the 90s, 2000s, and 2010s. In fact, he has been in at least 117 films – an incredible feat!

Unfortunately, Bruce Willis is not on the big screen these days, as he has frontotemporal dementia. While he has his loving family around him, you can still enjoy Willis’s incredible work on screen, from Look Who’s Talking to Die Hard.

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson is often voted one of the sexiest men on the planet, and it’s not hard to see why! The former second generation professional wrestler turned actor has an incredible physique, a height of 6’5, and unwavering charisma. As such, he’s been the star of many great films, including Jumanji, Fast & Furious, Baywatch, Red Notice, and more. One of his most noticeable features is his bald head, which only adds to his good looks. Surprisingly, he’s one of the bald actors who didn’t shave his head because of premature balding but because he wanted to! His hair didn’t work for him, so he decided to shave all his hair off, Dwayn Johnson Baldbecoming one of the most famous bald-headed actors out there.


Michael Jordan

As an incredible NBA player and the face of Nike Air Jordans, Michael Jordan is a household-name athlete. Not only is he known for his mesmerising skill on the court, but he’s also known for his good looks – specifically, his great build and bald head. He shaved his hair early in life in around 1989 because of a receding hairline and has sported the bald look ever since. It just goes to show that celebrity baldness is not a hindrance!

Phil Collins 

Phil Collins rose to fame when drumming and singing in the band Genesis before later entering a solo career. Like many other men, Collins experienced thinning hair, which led to him shaving it all off and embracing the bald look. It’s crazy to think he once had long hair, but he did!

Bald Celebrities with Beards

Many famous bald actors like to pair their bald heads with a beard. This can look great and balance out the absence of hair, so here we run down just a few bald actors with beards.

Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston is best known for his appearance on the hit TV show “Breaking Bad”, in which he starred as a chemistry teacher turned meth dealer. One of the show’s major plot points involved his character Walter White getting cancer, which meant he didn’t have to wear wigs for long. As soon as Walt shaved his head on screen, his appearance really took a turn, lending itself to a more striking look, which he definitely rocked! Paired with his darker beard, it’s safe to say Bryan Cranston is a bald actor who doesn’t need a head of hair to look great.

John Travolta 

Speaking of actors that are bald, there’s also John Travolta, who’s one of the more recent additions to the bald actors. For most of his career, John Travolta had a head full of dark hair, but that all changed in 2019. The Grease and Pulp Fiction star showcased his bald head on Instagram, joining the ranks of bald actors with beards.

Samuel L Jackson

As another bald actor, Samuel L Jackson has sported a variety of beards throughout his career. As of late, he can be seen with a greying, shaggy beard, which works very well with his bald head and glasses! Of course, Samual L Jackson wasn’t always bald – in Pulp Fiction, he’s seen sporting a jerry curl wig to amplify his afro.

What About Bald Women Celebrities?

It’s very common for men to go bald – it’s not quite as common for women. It still happens, though! In fact, there are female actors that are bald, having shaved their heads over the years, whether for a role or because they were experiencing a form of alopecia.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith is known for her work as an actress, as well as her high-profile marriage with the actor Will Smith. Pinkett Smith experienced severe hair loss throughout her career and finally decided to embrace being bald in 2021. After going through a long alopecia battle, Jada Pinkett Smith looks more confident than ever, thanks to her hairless look. It works for her!

Viola Davis

Another stunning actress who went through alopecia is Viola Davis. However, while Jada Pinkett Smith embraced the bald look, Davis decided to wear wigs to cover it up. It just goes to show you don’t have to deal with being bald even if you go through something like alopecia – there are other options, including high-quality wigs.

Amber Rose

Amber Rose – the gorgeous model and rapper – shaved her head many years ago to reveal a stunning, striking look. For around fifteen years, she kept her hair completely bald or in a buzz cut with bleach blonde hair. However, she decided to grow her hair just a few years ago, showing that it’s never too late to change your style. Who knows, maybe she’ll embrace her buzzed cut once more in the future. She sure did rock it!

Are You Ready to Go Bald?

Is your hair starting to thin? Perhaps you’ve noticed a receding M hairline or a slight bald spot on your crown. Typically, the bald look looks far better than obviously thinning hair – especially if the hair loss is quite extreme. In this case, it might be time to join the celebrities who are bald and shave it all off! It might help to speak to your loved ones and a hairdresser/barber first to ensure you’re ready for the significant change.

Hair Loss Solutions if You Want to Keep Your Hair

Of course, not everyone is a bald American actor with a perfectly shaped head – sometimes, it’s okay to admit that you really don’t want to lose your hair. The good news is there are other solutions.

One option is going through the medication route, with many patients experiencing positive results from Finasteride and Minoxidil (often, these medications are paired with other hair loss treatments, such as microneedling).

If you’re serious about restoring your hair, there’s also the option of a hair transplant. While there are many bald actors, there are equally many other celebs who have taken this route and experienced excellent results. Today, hair transplants are minimally invasive and produce very natural results, allowing you to enjoy a head full of hair forever.

There are some boxes you need to tick to be a good candidate for a hair transplant. Typically, you should be in good health, between the ages of 25 and 70 (although there are cases of people older than 70 getting a hair transplant), and have a healthy donor area.

In Summary

As you can see, there are plenty of high-profile bald actors, musicians, and athletes. Hopefully, their ability to look incredible even without hair will help you come to terms with any thinning hair you’re experiencing! Of course, if you still don’t think you’ll rock the bald look as much as Bruce Willis or Dwayne Johnson, there are hair loss treatments like a hair transplant to restore your locks.
