Another Day, Another 90’s Boyband Member Gets Hair Plugs…
Joey Fatone is back in the spotlight for the first time since his NSYNC days. Unfortunately, it’s as a spokesperson for Bosley hair restoration, which has just released a cringeworthy infomercial starring the 36-year-old singer and his new luscious locks. Truth be told, his hair barely looks any different in the “before” and “after” pictures, but who are we to judge? According to Joey, his hair began thinning while he was still performing with NSYNC (which explains his horrible fedora phase), and that led him to seek help from Bosley, the “hair restoration expert.” In other words, he broke down and got hair plugs.
It must have been a tough decision for Joey Fatone to come clean about his hair plugs, but don’t worry, he’s in good company. The Bosley infomercial also stars fellow former star Christopher Knight, of Brady Bunch fame, who credits Bosley with helping him get his sexy back and calls it the “best kept secret in Hollywood.” Also, AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys admitted to getting hair plugs earlier this year…and chose to share the big news on social media: “Some girls get their boobs done some guys get ab implants all to make them happy! This was the one thing I did and I couldn’t be happier thank u dr G!” Joey decided to go one step further with his hair restoration story and actually become a spokesperson for Bosley, saying:
Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me. Back then, I was the only one in the group getting thinner on top. I became self-conscious and started wearing hats more often. That’s life, but the beautiful thing is that now you can do something about it. The answer for me was going to Bosley where lots of celebrities go.
Yes, “celebrities” like Christopher Knight and AJ McLean. And the only time Joey Fatone will be performing in front of a live audience these days is on his new cooking show My Family Recipe Rocks on the Live Well Network, if that counts.
So, are you wondering what made Joey Fatone finally ditch the hats and get hair plugs instead? Bosley revealed in a press release the inspiration behind the NSYNC singer’s decision: “Like millions of people, Joey found that he had to reinvent himself, launch a new career, and deal with the economic changes before him. He took action.”
Hmm…sounds like he was broke and needed a quick paycheck. Unlike former NSYNC bandmate Justin Timberlake, who has an uber-successful solo career and solid acting chops to boot, Joey Fatone hasn’t enjoyed much success over the past decade. But now thanks to Bosley’s revolutionary “hair artistry,” he has joined the ranks of other balding, washed-up celebrities like Christopher Knight and AJ McLean. Maybe one day he’ll be able to rock cornrows a la Justin Timberlake in 2000.
