Boys and girls agree: Adam Levine is one hell of a good-looking dude. He’s got that sharp jawline, those deep, mysterious eyes, and model-like body that everyone admires. But perhaps his most underrated physical asset of all is his thick head of hair.
In the early years of his career, Levine was blooming with his dark locks. He may have changed hair colors a few times down the road, but his hairstyle remained the same – trimmed to the side and spiked on the top to really emphasize the volume of his hair.
Lately, however, it seems that Adam Levine’s sleek and luscious hair is slowly starting to thin out. Rumors of hair loss began circulating online and quickly gained traction when before-and-after pictures of Adam’s receding hairline started popping up.
And when Adam unexpectedly shaved his head, many believed that this was due to him having a hair transplant procedure.
Today, we’re going to dive head-first into this hot topic and find out whether or not the Maroon 5 singer actually underwent surgery.
Adam Levine’s Hair Problems
Baldness happens naturally to a lot of men – it’s something that can’t be helped even if you’re Adam Levine. Now that he’s 42 years old, the chances are even higher.
Some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the singer’s hair around the temple is starting to fade, creating an uneven hairline. There are also sparse spots on the front part of his quiff. These are tell-tale signs of balding.
The problem is, Adam changes his hairstyle quite often. So, these changes could just be brought about by his fashion choices. And although a changing hairline is not always indicative of hair loss, it’s what happens next that tells us something is up with his hair.
The Return of the Hair: Adam Levine’s Hair Restoration Journey
No more Misery for the Maroon 5 frontman – gone are the days of thinning hairline and sparse spots. Instead, Adam is rocking a denser, more vibrant head of hair!
But, how? At his age, shouldn’t we be seeing more of his scalp? Why is he suddenly growing more hair?
There are only four possible explanations for this “miracle”:
- Hair Transplant. This is done by relocating your healthy hair follicles to areas of your scalp that have less hair. In certain procedures, the hair surgeon will have to shave a portion of your hair so that it may be easier on their part to identify healthy hair follicles. Some patients may go for a full buzz cut or just cover up the partially shaved area with surrounding hair. Adam Levine, on the other hand, may have opted for the first option. He once shaved his head all of a sudden. And ever since then, his hair has grown thicker.
- Make-up. Yes, you read that right. Make-up can also be used to cover up the scalp and give it a “denser” look. Admittedly, though, it sounds impractical for Adam to rely solely on make-up to hide his receding hairline. But there is a possibility!
- Toupee. We’ve seen a lot of celebrities hiding their bald spots by wearing a wig or a toupee. It could be that Adam’s hairstylist is talented enough to really give his toupee a realistic look. It’s a good temporary solution to his hair loss.
- Over-The-Counter Medications. Hair loss can be easily dealt with by applying creams or medications on your scalp to help you rejuvenate hair growth. It’s a simple trick that hundreds of celebrities use to silently deal with hair loss.
Of course, these are just speculations. Only Adam knows what he did to restore his hair density. Besides, maybe it’s all just photoshop and constant changing of hairstyle that gives it this illusion of hair loss.
Adam Levine’s Response to Baldness Rumors
In 2015, Adam slammed rumors that he was going bald by sharing this tweet:
“Excuse me. Lex Luthor was bald. I have “shaved” my head. Meaning, shaved by choice. Big difference. Ok?!! Ok?!!”
If we take Adam’s word for it, this means that his surprising choice of hairdo was just something he wanted. This isn’t surprising, though, as he’s made shocking hairstyle choices in the past – yes, we’re talking about the time he dyed his hair bubblegum blue and looked like a Smurf for it.
But excluding that time, Adam Levine will always look hot and gorgeous – regardless of whether or not he underwent a hair transplant.
