Earlier this week, NBA star LeBron James unveiled his new Nike shoe line. It was is hairline, however, and not his shoe line that drew the most attention. This is because James, who normally sports a noticeably receding frontal hairline, showcased a much thicker, lower hairline. Speculation began immediately; media commentators cited low level laser therapy (LLLT), reduced stress, and longer hair as possible explanations. One theory, however, seemed most prevalent: James’ new hairline is a result of hair transplant surgery via the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique.
Could FUE explain LeBron’s new look? Possibly. His hairline does appear lower and more “juvenile” in shape, and several media sources shared images of James frequently wearing hats in the period before filming the Nike appearance, but is this the only explanation? Not likely; surgery, temporary hair pieces (hair system), and old fashion “Hollywood magic” are possible as well.
It is not certain whether James actually underwent hair transplant surgery. However, many now wonder: Could Lebron’s new look be explained by FUE? In my opinion, yes. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a tested and proven method of hair transplant surgery. Many patients undergo impressive transformations with FUE daily, and LeBron could have been one of them. Thus far, however, James remains quiet on the subject.
