Vanity or Not?



Who is this smart looking chap?  Need a clue?  He's an actor.  A further clue is he played the lead role in a superb Yellow Pages advertisement a few years ago.

This is the same man four years ago:


Aye it the Irish actor James Nesbitt.  Now, I don't usually promote any business, but for the sake of any readers who detest losing their hair, I can reveal James has had two hair transplants in recent years.  Quite successful they were too by the looks of things, but I have to admit I preferred his receding hairline.

The name of the Dublin clinic who performed this mini-miracle is here, although I don't expect any of you who are a missing a healthy number of sebaceous glands to be interested.  A bunnet's so much cheaper isn't it.

Paraphrasing the great English playwright Wm Shakespeare: Vanity they name is Nesbitt.

Demetrius said...

Looking at the earlier photo I think he has form. There seems to be some expensive dentistry/orthodontics there. So what is next on the agenda?

Auch WfW, he didn't like balding. Poor soul. :)

subrosa said...

I was going to mention that Demetrius and also the expensive tan, but I didn't want to be called bitchy. :)

Over the last ten years, my hair has receded a bit. The thinner it got, the shorter I cut it (always good advice, that) and today it looks not unlike the second photo above. Only last week, I was attending a course in Door Supervision for my new job, and I was a little upset when, on several occasions, the trainer referred to me as 'bald'. I'm not, really I'm not.

I regard hair transplants for men like I regard facelifts and boob jobs for women - tragic loss of self-confidence at best, and utter vanity at worst. Men - don't do it. JN might look 'better' in the first photo, but everybody knows and will titter behind their hands.

Nice syrup.

I confess my hair is starting to thin but when it comes to it, if there isn't enough to justify a haircut I think I'll just buy a razor.

A well known actor friend of mine once told me a story about Edward Woodward. Everyone knew he wore a syrup.

He had three - in varying lengths and the only person allowed to see him without one was his personal dresser. One day he complained all morning about needing a haircut, then after lunch reappeared in the short syrup telling everyone what a good job the barber had done...

This is truly sad and I, for one, ain't going there!

At my recent aviation medical the Doc stares at my thatch and queried "Hmmm, white or grey?". Doc, I replied, surely "Sterling silver"!

You stick with what you're comfortable with Richard.

I'm intrigued. What is a course in Door Supervision about? Hinges? Handles? OK, I'm being facetious. :)

Love the WV.

subrosa said...

That is sad Dioclese. It never occurred to me he wore a wig. Perhaps it's a female thing that it's not important - except when it's off centre of course. :)

Foxy Brown said...

Botox injections, perhaps? His face looks a little frozen. (I've always wanted to leave a comment on one of those Daily Mail has-he-or-she-had-cosmetic-surgery threads).

subrosa said...

OR, you do surprise me. I always insist upon platinum!

subrosa said...

Could be foxy, I didn't think of that. Vanity isn't my strong point.

Go for it. Here's your chance!

"I'm intrigued. What is a course in Door Supervision about?"

Part of my descent from moderately well-paid professional to a job in the real world. I am now a security guard and this is part of my training. It's fun.

Richard said...

And yes, I realised you were being facetious.

Speaking of which, what do 'facetious' and 'abstemious' have in common?

Conan the Librarian™ said...

Ious?

Yer getting eff all.

Richard said...

Heh - true.

All the vowels, once, and in the right order.

Conan the Librarian™ said...

Ah...

Billy said...

My sister had a partner who thought he was Elvis and wore a Elvis type wig - thought nobody knew - and she never saw him without it on as he went to bed wearing one of those Rip Van Winkle bed hats.

He was English - they stayed in Preston and he also had an obsession with William Wallace after seeing Braveheart. At least he did not try and dress like him so I suppose his obsession with Elvis must have been stronger.

subrosa said...

Goad Conan, whit kin eh say? Eh'm numbed.

subrosa said...

Billy, I hope she's cured now. :)

subrosa said...

There's nothing wrong with security Richard. We have thousands do that in this country. They're called military.

Glad you're enjoying it. Actually it will be a window on the world. I used to know an accountant who did it at weekends because he enjoyed meeting folk he'd never meet in his usual line of work.

I knew that. Remember my English teacher pointing that out. Head full of useless information I have. :)
