Jason Alexander started losing his hair at 17 years of age,
which is extremely traumatic to any young man, but was actually a boon to his
acting career. He found that his baldness became increasingly distracting,
because of sweating, clumping of makeup and much more that made his lack of
hair that much more troubling.
However, he did not want to detriment his acting career by
opting for permanent hair replacement solutions, as he enjoyed the ability to
play innumerable characters, either with or without hair. Therefore, he chose
to investigate other alternatives, which included hairpieces.
Jason Alexander has never tried to hide the fact that he was
wearing a toupee, because hair loss is simply a reality of his life, and no one
wakes up one day with a full head of hair again.
He had no interest in playing make believe; he just wanted
to have the increased self-esteem and confidence that a hairpiece could
The problem remained that he did have a lot of difficulty in
finding a hair replacement system that worked. Before coming to Farrell Hair,
he tried a couple of other companies whose hairpieces contained irritating
netting, or latex surfaces to keep them in place.
However, Jason had an allergic reaction to these, leaving
him without an alternative, or so he thought. He then went on the internet, and
found Farrell Hair via a Google search.
Another issue that Jason was having in finding the best hair
replacement system was that he did not want to magically have a full head of
hair, but wanted to look like a man who was simply losing his hair. Initially,
he did not have the confidence that Farrell Hair would be able to do this for
him, because he did not want it to look terribly obvious, fake or for the
toupee to show any seams.
However, when he spoke with Richard Farrell about it,
Richard exuded nothing but confidence in his ability to create a stunning
toupee that looked and felt real and was exactly what Jason wanted. When
Farrell Hair created Jason's hairpiece, he actually wore it that same evening
to a red carpet event. Expecting the worst from celebrity watchdog groups, such
as TMZ, he was pleasantly surprised to find that the reports claimed that he
looked good with his toupee, not ridiculous. Jason's results from Farrell Hair
are typical, as his wife, friends and family have all told him that he looks
good and the toupee looks very realistic.
