So you’re on the fence about scalp micropigmentation? You know SMP is a potentially life-altering option to replicate the look of natural hair follicles. You know it’s a great non-surgical solution to camouflage baldness, but you’re anxious about how your image will change or what sort of style you’ll project if you leap. We get it. The chance to redefine and project a sleek, stylish, and confident appearance is one of the big reasons men and women take the leap to SMP.

Look to the Stars

We know lots of guys take their cues from their biggest style icons; the stars of Hollywood are excellent examples. And there are indeed plenty of great bald actors who’ve never received SMP. Think of bald men like Patrick Stewart (Picard), Bruce Willis (McClane), Sean Connery (Bond), Ben Kingsley (Gandhi), and Samuel L. Jackson (Jules – albeit with a full head of hair).

But what of Hollywood stars who have undergone SMP? Who are three men who’ve made the leap while thriving in careers where image and appearance are paramount?

Benedict Garrett

Let’s start with the dimmest of the three lights in this firmament unless you’re into U.K. reality television and male strippers that is. Benedict Garrett, who starred in the U.K.’s Big Brother in 2012, has received SMP. As if Big Brother wasn’t a significant enough career accomplishment, he was also a lead performer with The Dreamboys and now dances with The Candymen in the Netherlands. The Dreamboys and The Candymen? Both male stripper revues.

Jamie Foxx

If taking style cues from a reality television star and male stripper is not your idea of following a suitable role model, will Jamie Foxx do? Foxx is a comedian, singer, and actor who has starred in movies like Ray, Collateral, Django Unchained, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and, for a change of pace, Annie. For Ray alone, Foxx won an Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.  That very same year, Foxx was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for Collateral. All that and SMP to define is a sharp style, too. Want an even brighter light amongst the bald men of Hollywood?

Vin Diesel

If Benedict Garett wasn’t a bright enough light and Jamie Foxx’s ineffable style isn’t quite what you’re looking for in an SMP role model, how about another Hollywood actor who has embraced the SMP trends, Vin Diesel? Diesel, born Mark Sinclar, projects one of the edgiest and most potent styles in Hollywood thanks in big part to SMP. He’s also starred in movies like The Fast and the Furious franchise — heard of it? — and xXx and The Chronicles of Riddick.

For two of the brightest, most powerful, and most well-paid stars in Hollywood, and Benedict Garrett!, SMP has played a big part in creating and projecting their inestimable style. If you’re looking to get noticed or project your confident personality, SMP could pay off for you, too.
