Elon Musk is one of the most intelligent people on the planet and is a revolutionizing figure that will bring many more changes to the world.

Before he became Elon Musk that we know today, he had to go through his own physical change.

Before he was known worldwide, Elon looked ordinary and had beautiful hair.

He could have looked into some hairstyles for balding men, but what he went and did was something that changed his appearance entirely and allowed him to have luscious hair.

How did that happen and how does an Elon Musk haircut look today?

Let’s find out together.

Elon Musk Hairstyle Through the Years

Before he ever came up with the idea of PayPal, Elon musk had thin hair. During the 90s, the progression of baldness was showing quite profusely that even the best hair pomade couldn’t help him hide patches of baldness he was getting.

At this point, Elon was in his early 20s, which is quite early for someone to start losing his hair. However, the nature of his job and the brilliance he possesses does cause a lot of stress, which is one of the main reasons for hair loss.

So over time, Musk’s hair started getting thinner and his hairline receded dramatically. He exemplified the early stages of male pattern baldness, which, if left unchecked, would eventually lead to losing his hair entirely on top.

If you looked at Elon Musk in 2012, you could see that his hair went back from a Norwood 4, to a Norwood 2. This is not how things naturally go. Male pattern baldness is a progressive condition and does not revert back.

So what did Elon Musk do to prevent the progression of losing his hair? 

Musk’s Hair Transplant

Elon Musk did something to his hair to prevent him from getting bald. Being a part of Silicon Valley and the owner and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla does leave you with a lot of options to prevent hair loss.

To do so, you need to have bottomless pockets, and Elon definitely has them. Everyone suspects that he incorporated some kind of hair-loss medication or used laser combs for hair regrowth.

It is much likelier that he had hair transplants to prevent him from getting completely bald. Modern hair transplants are quite efficient and work much better than the old-school hair plugs that people had back in the day.

It involves having actual hair follicles gathered from donor areas and transferred to the necessary section of the scalp using fine instruments. It is done by transferring the strands from the back and sides of your head to the top, as these areas do not go bald.

For this to work, Elon had enough hair in his donor area. And based on the examples that we have today, it seems that he had buckets of it, as today he can grow a chili bowl haircut without a problem.
