Update: Almost two years after I wrote this post, Elon Musk seemed to credit the “crown chakra” as helping him regrow his hair. Recent photos of him in 2018 suggest that his hairline is still going strong.
Elon Musk has had a phenomenal 2015 and has been in the news virtually every week this year. His motor vehicle (Tesla) and solar power (SolarCity) companies continue to grow despite some turbulence. This week marked a new zenith to Mr. Musk’s fame after the successful SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launching and booster landing.
Several weeks ago, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and a number of other IT sector luminaries created a non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research organization called OpenAI which aims to develop AI while protecting mankind from rogue unfriendly AI led annihilation. While reading about that story, I came across a past photo from 2000 of Elon Musk (on the right) and Peter Thiel (link to WSJ article with photo here):
Elon Musk’s Thinning Hair
I was quite shocked to see his thinning hair, as I always see Mr. Musk with a full head of hair in all his recent photos. In 2000 he was just 29 years old, which means that he probably started balding in his mid-20s or perhaps even earlier. You can see even better balding images of Elon Musk in this video from 1999.
Elon Musk’s Hair Transplant
The below is what Elon Musk looks like nowadays per a Gawker magazine/CBS before and after hair transplant photo:
I bet that he has had a hair transplant. Perhaps one day someone who interviews him will ask him which surgeon he went to for his hair transplant? The results are excellent and prove that as of 2015, hair restoration remains the best option we have to treat hair loss.
