McGregor Vs. Mayweather – Battle of the Hair Styles
To most watching this weekend’s fight, the main story is about mixed martial arts vs. traditional boxing. Here at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, we see a different battle at hand. We see the fight as a battle to answer the question of which is better: a full head of hair or “bald is beautiful”.
Here’s a breakdown of how the opponents’ hair styles match up:
Since early in his career, Floyd Mayweather has always been known for sporting a short haircut with a tight fade. Other than a few times, he has rarely been seen with his hair grown out. Today, he is commonly known for wearing his hair completely bald. However, Mayweather has made it clear that he sports a bald head by choice, as you can see here with his hair grown out in 2010. In addition to this, it has been reported in the last year that Floyd spends up to $3,000 per week on haircuts, which seems like a lot for someone who has no hair.
On the other side of the spectrum, Conor McGregor has sported a wide variety of hair styles throughout his career. A man known for having great style and hair, Conor is, perhaps, most known for sporting the trendy undercut with a combover. However, the charismatic UFC star is known for switching it up and trying out different beard styles too. Take a look at a few of our favorites of his throughout the years:
The real question is: “Is bald really beautiful?” The answer could be found through some studies that were done in past including one that was published as “Psychology of Hair Transplants” by myself and Dr. William Rassman. The study has looked at the changes that men undergoing hair transplant experience. We know that young men with male patterned baldness can suffer from social anxiety, depression and hair loss can affect men’s sex life and career among others.
With advances in hair restoration being bald is optional now for many people. We also have Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) today that can create the look of a full head of hair by applying dermal pigments into the scalp that can create the look of shaved but not bald to the ones who prefer to have that look.
Whether you’re a fan of the “bald is beautiful” look, or a full head of hair, we hope to see a an entertaining match this weekend, and may the best hair style prevail! If you’re wearing bald hair style (not by choice) and want to do something about it, contact us today for a consultation.
