I wanted to share this with you as it’s been something of a transformational experience for me – and it would be wonderful if sharing it could help others in the same boat.
Back in 2016 as I rewatched my Strictly performances each week, I noticed that I was starting to go a bit thin at the front. And the more I saw myself on screen and in photos, under those unforgiving spotlights, the more I became aware of it. I’d cover it with make-up and do my best to avoid certain lights, but I didn’t like the situation at all.
Image is very important to me. If, as a performer, you’re known for having a good head of hair, should you start to lose it, you lose it very publicly and it can very much affect one’s confidence. I realised that this was something I couldn’t ignore, and of course, that it wasn’t going to improve on its own. I started reading up about the various options for treatment, and it looked like a hair transplant could be the solution I needed.
A chance conversation with James Nesbitt had us both talking about our hairloss, and James told me about the tremendous results he’d had from a hair transplant at HRBR – Hair Restoration Blackrock – a very well regarded specialist clinic in Dublin. I immediately arranged for a consultation.
You either worry about hair loss, or you don’t worry about it. If you worry about it, then it is a massive thing – and for me it was.
I met with the Consultant Surgeon and liked him instantly. I liked the setup of the clinic. The whole thing was just so professional. I knew straight away that I wanted to have my hair transplant performed by HRBR.
It was a simple, straightforward procedure, and I knew immediately after having it done that I was delighted. I was very quickly back to work and had thought I’d keep it to myself, all under the radar, but I have to say I was so thrilled with the results I was happy to tell everyone!
It’s now two years since the procedure, and I can honestly say it’s changed my life. I feel fantastic, like a new man – it’s given me so much more confidence when appearing on television or having my picture taken and I’m so glad I took action when I did. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to anyone who’s facing hairloss, it’s quite simply the best thing you will ever do for yourself. Tremendous thanks to the marvellous team at HRBR – I feel 25 again!
