Hair transplants don’t come cheap. English footballer Wayne Rooney is said to have paid $40,000 for his procedure. This is certainly the upper end of the price scale: Rooney has an unlimited amount of money to spend and his scalp was in a particularly severe state. But even relatively minor interventions conducted at highly-trained eastern European clinics for cut-priced fees will cost upwards of $2000. Some would say that this is a ridiculously high price to pay for vanity, and sure, that’s true. But what’s the alternative? Balding isn’t simply a body image issue: it’s a reminder that we’re withering away, creeping towards inevitable death. Part of the trauma definitely comes from the media and conventional beauty standards, but I think a sizable chunk is also a very primal fear of our own mortality.
I suppose that I could start some sort of fluffy, contrarian movement where men with receding hairlines get together in support groups, hold hands and tell each other that we’re still beautiful — a bit like the body positivity movement or all those women that the body hair removal industry is a tool of patriarchal oppression, but that’s not my style. I think it takes a lot more mental effort to uproot deeply internalized beauty standards that we’ve developed throughout the entirety of our lives, or reconditioning the fear of death response, than it does to save up a few grand and put aside a few weeks of healing to get a hair transplant. I’ve quite simply got more important things to think about.
