Entourage Star Jeremy Piven Boasts Latest 'Do

Entourage star Jeremy Piven began losing hair years ago and seems to keep a full head with hairpieces instead of hair transplants. Sometimes, though, he lets the bald spots shine through.

Jeremy PivenWatch Entourage and it’s plain as vanilla: Jeremy Piven appears to have more hair than he really does. Piven’s status-hungry, super-agent Ari Gold shows a fairly full head of hair, though Piven in real life has less. This evidently all comes down to toupees, rather than a cosmetic surgery procedure, such as hair transplants.

Apparently, the real Piven’s hairdo can vary from day-to-day as well. Balding one day; hair-pieced, perhaps, a few days later — online photos prove that Piven likes to mix it up. It could be a matter of his given mood — or, maybe he sees the humor in the erratic appearance. (Others surely do.)

MakeMeHeal.com reported on Piven’s probable dependence on hairpieces, and compared him to John Travolta – another actor who apparently turned to the rug instead of a hair transplant. Like Piven, Travolta showed enough inconsistency in public to make it known that he has not given his thinning hair a permanent solution.

“John Travolta doesn’t look like he has had a hair transplant,” plastic surgeon Paul S. Nassif told MakeMeHeal.com. “It does look like he is wearing some sort of hairpiece. Unfortunately, although it’s likely an expensive system and requires a lot of maintenance, it’s not doing its job if the world can still see it as a piece and not hair.”

High-maintenance hairpieces seem to be the culprit for both actors, and that’s no crime. Piven could sell his work on Entourage with a shaved head. As for Travolta, as long as he spares us the sequel to Battlefield Earth, he can do whatever he wants with his hair.
