Question: What do IK Ogbonna, and Anthony Monjaro have in common? And that is aside from being rich, famous, and handsome Nollywood actors.
Answer: they’ve all had hair treatment procedures done by Vinci Hair Clinic! Specifically Micro Scalp Pigmentation (MSP).
But these guys are the exception because on ‘Planet Celebrity’, image plays a crucial role, and it’s no surprise that many famous personalities have sought and obtained hair treatment procedures to restore their hair, but would never really reveal it to the wider world.
Let’s look more closely at three of the reasons for that.
For a long time, people who were bald and suffered from hair loss were looked upon a certain type of way and this can be worse for celebrities, who are expected to have a ‘certain’ look. While our society is evolving and people are beginning to understand that hair loss can actually happen to anyone, it still remains a long road to travel. The old stigma surrounding hair loss treatments lingers on. People still fear being judged for undergoing treatment. And because of this, many celebrities would rather not reveal they have undergone any kind of hair treatment procedure as a means to protect their image.
2: Keeping Up Appearances
We all want to look good. We feel better about ourselves when we have confidence in our appearance. It affects how we engage with the people around us. Equally important, how we look can affect how other people engage with us; keeping up appearances refer to a type of cognitive bias that results in maintaining an illusion of flawless and effortless beauty, as this can go a long way in helping celebrities get more gigs and endorsement contracts.
Therefore, they risk the public perceiving them as less genuine or questioning the naturalness of their good looks if they reveal that they have undergone hair treatment procedures to enhance their looks.
For some celebrities, it is essential to maintain the mystique and avoid undermining the carefully crafted image they have built. They choose to remain silent about their hair treatment to preserve the illusion of perfection.
3: Contractual Obligations
Celebrities make fortunes from endorsing all kinds of products. With this money comes contractual obligations. These contracts may include clauses that prevent them from discussing personal matters, including cosmetic procedures, without prior approval.
If you’re a celebrity A-lister with beautiful hair, and you’re telling the world that it’s all due to your grooming regime and Brand X shampoo, the company’s marketing execs might not want you talking about your recent hair treatment. Your contract may include a clause expressly forbidding this. Violating these agreements can have legal and financial consequences, effectively deterring celebrities from openly discussing their hair treatments.
There is also the fact that the entertainment industry is a competitive environment. It’s a field where ageism and the pressure to remain youthful can be relentless. The perception of a natural head of hair can help individuals who work in this industry secure roles and endorsements, and maintain their marketability.
It is important to note that not all celebrities choose to remain silent about their hair treatments. However, for those who choose to keep it private, it is essential to respect their individual choices. Here at Vinci we have many celebrity clients but discretion is our watchword.!
