^^ I already posted a link to that blog.

Shatner's worst fake hair was during his T.J. Hooker period. Christ, it looked like he was wearing a giant tribble on his head.
If I missed your post it's possible that others did too. Regardless, it's worth repeating.

Re: Kirk's Hair Through the Years

I don't think that Shatner was the only one whose hair changed throughout the years.
Scotty's hair changed, Picard's hair changed.
Didn't Gates McFadden always wear a wig? And Majel Barrett donned some really awful ones especially in TOS.

And gasp I don't think Rand's hair was all hers.

Well, that has just ruined my whole past 4 decades. I thought FOR SURE that the character of Janice had nothing else to do off-duty than un-do and re-do that stupid basket-shaped hairstyle.


If you want to see Patrick Stewart with hair, then watch I, Claudius (the episodes with Sejanus).

Yeah, that was disappointing to learn. Oh, well...she's still a pretty woman.

But it does make me wonder why Shatner specifically gets the jabs at his hair. You don't see a website devoted to Gates McFadden's wigs.

Though speaking of McFadden, remember all the jokes about Sean Connery's hair in The Hunt for Red October? I didn't get that, either. He's an actor..it's a role. What's funny?

Might as well make fun of Nimoy's rubber ear tips, or Spiner's contact lenses!

Yes, his hair is going to change. Now he looks like a old man in the priceline commercials. But, his acting skills has not improved since 1967.

That's because he insists on talking like every word deserves its own sentence.

Kirk's hot. Doesn't matter what hair he's wearing. That comment about Rand's hair is totally below the belt, though...

That's because he so finely honed it by then that there was no need for any improvement. NONE!

I'm no fan of him tbh, but I disagree with that statement. Watched some of the Star Trek films and he got better in regards to his acting, and saw him in Boston Legal and he did a good job, imo, in it.

Re: Kirk's Hair Through the Years

Shatner has always taken advantage of the best hair replacement technology available (never mind the "lost years" when he was sleeping in his pickup truck). Other follicly-challenged celebrities have not done quite so well as Shatner. John Travolta springs to mind ... linky

But I don't mind if a bald(ing) person chooses to wear a 'piece. What bugs me is when they are graying and dye the eyebrows. That's just too obviously trying way to hard to hang on to bygone youth. As I'm graying I notice it more and more often.

William Shatner's the only person I'm aware of whose hair has gotten fuller and lusher, as they age ...
