Piccadilly Pulse: Hair Transplants – 11/06/2011

By Barrie White

Wayne Rooney this week revealed a sore and bloody head on Twitter as he confirmed the rumours that he had a hair transplant done.

We asked people in Piccadilly Gardens the following:

Should men accept going bald?

 

Options Results
Yes 58%
No 42%

 

Glyn Sinkinson, 51, Self-employed, Middleton:

 

“I would not ridicule it if it was through serious illness, or caused by cancer.”

 

Louise O’Donnell, 30, Insurance, Salford:

 

“I think baldness is quite sexy.  It’s a nice look and it is all part of the ageing process.  It looks stupid otherwise.”

 

Janet Quinn, 47, Support Worker, City Centre:

 

“They should grow old gracefully.  There are other things to worry about than going bald.”

 

Dian Robertson, 48, Pupil Support Worker, City Centre:

 

“They should just accept the way they are.”

 

Hugh Quinn, 48, Financial Advisor, City Centre:

 

“No I wouldn’t have a hair transplant.   Some people if they just had the money then I suppose they would.  He (Rooney) just looks like a hairy turnip rather than a bald one.”

 

Steven Hutchinson, 20, Student, Salford:

 

“It is part of growing old.  It’s one of those things that is going to happen.”

 

Danny Cooper, 20, Student, Bolton:

 

“I think some people might be able to suit baldness but for others, it’s all about looking good.  For me, I don’t suit a bald spot.  I just don’t suit it, I look like Shrek!” 

 

Sophie Parker, 21, Receptionist, City Centre:

 

“If they have hair before then it would be acceptable.  But some people look nice with baldness. I quite like a good head of hair.”

 

Katie Mapes, 22, Student, City Centre:

 

“I would not be too bothered as long as the person is nice.  It’s not like I am not going to go out with someone just because their bald.”

 

Craig Lawson, 28, Computer Forensics Engineer, 28:

 

“It’s not something I would personally do.  I am not that vain really.”

 

Richard Pike, 32, Engineer, City Centre:

 

“Even though Rooney has got all that money, he should grow bald gracefully.”
