The Amazing, Spectacular, Uncanny Journey Of Stan Lee's Hair
I used to have very long hair. Down to my waist long. But that was in the nineties. By the noughties, it was still long but only shoulder length, Still a decent mane. But getting thinner. Now I have the bald pattern "daggers" starting on each side of my scalp, finding a path through the undergrowth. Compared to the rest of the men, and some of the women in my family, I've held on remarkably well. But I know that I will succumb to genetics and at some time in the rest of my forties, I'm going to have to go for the buzzcut. And then everyone will see my ridiculously shaped head.
But in 1966 something started to happen. In the same year, he went from this…
One strategic combover took years off him. But Stan Lee's hair wasn't done. Two years later, he looked like this.
Three years later in 1971, it was still growing forwards, and out the sides.
And by 1972 the year I was born, he looks like this.
In 1974, it must have been hard to keep the hair out of his eyes.
An by 1976, the grey was setting in but he still looked like this. In his fifties. It gives me hope (and no I don't believe it could possibly possibly be a wig)
That's not a mid-life crisis. That's hope. Thanks to French site 9emeart for the images…
