Yes. Yes it was. Too far below.
But not really. It was way above the belt.

And other celebrities use Botox and plastic surgery.

I'd rather enjoy Shatner's journey (trek?) to hair replacement satisfaction with him than watch others become hideous caricatures of their formerly youthful selves.

But that's just me.

Shat's attitude toward his hair loss is just a wink and a nod away from acknowledgement. It's part of his sense of humor, part of the fun.

It's a shame they couldn't or didn't recreate his lce look from TOS in the films.

Actually I thought I saw a pic awhile back where someone did an impressive Photoshop of that. It didn't look bad.
I think I saw that on the Shatner's Toupee blog, done with a still from TMP. They concluded that the face didn't quite look right and he must have had an eyelift or something.


February 5, 1968

From: Bob Justman

To: Gene Roddenberry


Gene: If you haven't already heard about it, we are missing some wigs and hair pieces. Bill Shatner borrowed all four of his hair pieces when we finished shooting. There are two new ones and two old ones. The new ones are worth approximately $200 apiece and the two old ones are worth approximately $100 a piece. Should Star Trek go again next season, this no doubt means that we will have to construct new hair pieces again for Bill because he will have used both the old ones and the new ones to such an extent that they will not be photographable. This I guarantee, since it has happened to us before.

From a memo reprinted in Star Trek Creator: The Authorized Biography of Gene Roddenberry by David Alexander, 1994.

As I understood it, Shatner was so much in denial about his hairpiece, that he actually wore it to bed! You know, I can just imagine his bed head in the morning, if he did! More likely though, it probably slipped off in the night ... his wife probably thought it was the cat, or something, and was probably petting it in a half-dream state ...

What's funny about that is that Shatner-- by his own admission-- sleeps in the nude. Why he'd be so self-conscious about his hair when the rest of him would be visible is something I don't understand. And it's not as though his wife wouldn't know he wore a hairpiece.

Aaaaaugh! Did you have to make me think of that scene he did au naturel with Angie Dickinson in Big Bad Mama?

That reminds me of Gerald Ford's quip: "Ronald Reagan doesn't dye his hair -- he's just prematurely orange."

To me, the worst TOS toupee/wig was worn by Walter Koenig. But I'm sure he would probably agree!

Re: Kirk's Hair Through the Years

The Aqua-Rug Shatner sported in THE VOYAGE HOME looked the worst out of all of them, and at the same time, proved to be the most impressive. When The Shat dived into that green, murky water (shot from a distance, and partially blocked, so we couldn't see his toupée helmet respond inappropriately, as it's being submerged), it was amazing, watching him put his rug through its paces. I mean, it responded as real hair would!

I don't know what kind of glue they used ... but I doubt that Shatner would have it stapled down. Of course, when he surfaces, though, he doesn't shake his hair, to get it out of his eyes, or move it manually with his hands, for fear of dislodging his rug. But that dive of his remains the only feature of TVH that truly stands out, for me. And that was in the 80's, one can only imagine what they use now to anchor a hairpiece down ... to keep it secure. Shat probably has to use kerosene to remove it, now, it's glued on so well.

Strange, we are on page 3 talking about a mans hair? Hey, what would Picard's hair would look like if it was a little bit longer. What would Kirk, Spock, Picard, Ricker look like if they were the new cast members of Duck Dynasty?
