Some Random Musings About Baldness And The Daily Mail
I have noticed that many bloggers write the occasional post telling their readers what’s on their mind in the form of a ‘random musings’ post.
So I thought I would do the same as it’s a quiet morning here in the UK, the clocks have gone back, it’s cold and wet outside, and to be honest, both myself and my partner were struggling to find anything else to write about (we both contribute to this blog).
I basically have two things that I want to get off my chest. First of all I have a mini-rant about everyone’s favourite British newspaper – the Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail’s online edition is reportedly the most visited newspaper website in the world, and I have to admit that I myself visit this site every single morning before I do any work.
Although it does contain a lot of bitchy articles about celebrities who have been photographed without make-up or celebrities who are carrying a few extra pounds, it does contain a lot of interesting news stories as well.
However I have noticed recently that with regards to health and beauty articles, they seem to write a lot of articles that are thinly disguised advertisements for certain products.
For instance they will often write an entire article about one particular product, and in this article they will discuss all of the key benefits, explain that the product proved to be effective in clinical studies, and then tell people where they can buy this product. The whole thing reads like an advert, and it can be quite annoying.
Another thing that I have noticed is that more and more men are choosing to tackle the problem of baldness head on, and getting expensive hair transplants to give themselves a full head of hair.
I recently found out that Michael Vaughan, the former captain of the England cricket team, has had a hair transplant, and I subsequently found myself looking closely at his hair when he was on Strictly Come Dancing last night.
He’s not the only celebrity to get a little help either because lots of male celebrities have had this procedure.
Just this week Calum Best, the model son of George Best, has admitted that he has had a hair transplant, and other celebrities that now have a lot more hair than they used to include Jason Gardener, whose story is featured in the video below, James Nesbitt, Louis Walsh, Duncan Bannatyne, Wayne Rooney, Shane Warne, and if reports are to be believed, Jude Law.
It’s just a shame that this procedure isn’t a lot cheaper because at the moment a lot of men who have normal jobs earning an average wage simply have to accept their baldness because this surgical procedure is far too expensive.
Anyway those are the two things that occupied my thoughts in recent days. Do you have any thoughts about these two subjects? For example do you think bald men often look more attractive than men with hair? If so, feel free to leave a comment below.
