Elon Musk Looked Completely Different Before He Became A Billionaire

Receding hairlines happen to the best of us, revealing inch after inch of extra forehead until the inevitable bald scalp emerges.

For lowly non-millionaires, baldness can be concealed with a fetching comb-over, toupee or perhaps an eternal beanie hat.

However, for next-level moneyed individuals such as Elon Musk, you can buy back your full, youthful barnet through the means of a hair transplant.

After all, if you can send a Tesla into space, why would you hesitate to send a few hairs to your very own head? The planet of the body

This is the bold/bald claim made by hair transplant expert, Dr Jeffrey Epstein, MD, who has informed Page Six how it is ‘highly, highly likely’ Elon has undergone a hair transplant.

According to Dr Epstein:

If you look at his pictures from his PayPal days, when he sold the company [in 2002], he was pretty bald.

I mean, he had a class three to a class four (out of seven) hair loss pattern and he now shows no evidence, at least in the front, of any hair loss.

Dr. Epstein remarked on how back in the early 2000s, Elon’s hairline looked very different indeed; showing ‘significant frontal thinning with recession.’

The hair transplant specialist described this as being ‘the Prince William look’ whereby the hairline has receded moderately, leaving fine hairs covering the front portion of the scalp.

According to Dr Epstein, Elon’s hair would have been an ideal location for a successful hair transplant, which would most likely have drawn from the thick, luxuriant growth on the sides and back of his head.

Dr Epstein told Page Six why he believes Elon achieved such a natural, ‘good result’:

It looks like he had good hair on the back and side of his head, and those are the hairs we use for transplanting.

Admiring the alleged handiwork, Dr. Epstein said:

Offhand, you wouldn’t know that it was done.

But when you’re in the business, you know what to look for.

The alleged surgery would reportedly not have been too painful, but would have caused some discomfort.

In fact, most people are reportedly able to show off their new hair in around six to eight days, transplanted hairs may take about six months to grow back fully after falling out after surgery.

Despite many, many badass bald icons such as The Rock, Bruce Willis and Sinead O’ Connor, many men do feel self conscious about hair loss.

However, with a somewhat hairy price-tag of $8,000 to $15,000 for one surgery, this isn’t really within the shopping budget of your average Joe.

Dr Epstein has estimated Elon probably underwent at least two operations, costing him within the ball park of $20,000 and $30,000.

People have had mixed response to the transplant rumours.

One person raged:

When you got that hair replacement procedure did something leak into your brain and dissolve the region responsible for empathy or is that just what being rich does to people? Thanks!

However, another snorted:

Hue hue hue Elon Musk got a hair transplant. Like that is worse compared to plastic surgery or injecting chemicals into your body to change how you look and ultimately make yourself look worse.

So fashionistas, do you prefer Elon’s hair noughties or now?
