Prince william buzz cut

Even though millions of men experience male pattern baldness, being in that big club can be a very stressful experience for the average guy — so just imagine how it must feel to be one of the most visible men in the world, very visibly losing one’s hair.

Prince William had a full head of blonde hair as a child and teen, but in his twenties, it became apparent that the heir apparent was losing his hair. Although it has become trendy for balding men to preemptively buzz their whole head, the future king clearly couldn’t bring himself to part with what was left.

Until now.

At age 35-and-a-half, the Duke of Cambridge has finally decided to embrace his lack of locks by visiting celebrity barber Joey Wheeler, who took clippers to the royal noggin and gave him a whole new look.

Okay, so it’s not that different — he still kept it a teensy bit longer on the sides than on the top — but the buzz cut is getting a lot Twitter buzz nonetheless.

Some folks aren’t really feeling it.

Feel very sorry for Prince William because he used to be so gorgeous with hair

I still think Prince William can afford hair implant, like a bad ass one , latest technology type of thing lol … no need to go bald #justsaying

But like us, most people seem to fully supportive of William’s super-short new ‘do.

Ngl but prince William looks mint now he’s had his hair shaved off

Prince William went full Bruce Willis by shaving the hair he was rapidly losing. That’s the only move, in my opinion. Good idea Prince Willis

— Jason Isbell (@JasonIsbell) January 19, 2018

But if there’s anything everyone can agree on, it’s confusion over why he spent so much on something most people can get professionally done for under $20 — or free with their own clippers in the bathroom.

Can any barber explain to me why Prince William’s No.1 crop cost him £180? You could easily get three pairs of clippers for that!

No word on what Kate thinks of her husband’s new look, but she’s got enough long luxurious hair for the both of them, so we think they’ll be just fine.

What is a buzz cut?

A buzz cut is a variety of short hairstyles usually created with electric clippers.

Some of the styles include the crew cut, butch cut, flattop and ivy league – to name but a few.

Generally the back and sides are kept short, or even shorter than the hair on the top of the head.

The style rose to popularity when manual hair clippers were invented by Serbian Nikola Bizumic in the late 19th century.

Often military recruits in countries like Australia, China, Russia and the US are given buzz cuts when they enter training.

This was originally to stop lice spreading, but now it is for ease of maintenance, uniformity and keeping cool in hot weather.

How much did Prince William’s haircut cost?

It has been reported Prince Williams new haircut cost £180.

He unveiled his new style while meeting patients at Evelina London Children’s Hospital on January 18.

He was meeting ex-servicemen and women at the hospital.

Prince Harry, 33, has poked fun in public at William’s receding hairline — once quipping: “I think he definitely is brainier than I am, but we established that at school, along with his baldness.”

And while speaking with a Second World War veteran in Barbados a few years ago, Harry said William “was already bald aged 12”.

Who is Joey Wheeler?

The 35-year-old heir to the throne is said to have taking the plunge after seeking advice from wife Kate Middleton’s long-time hairdresser Richard Ward.

Ward has been dealing with the Middleton’s locks for years now.

It is believed Ward’s deputy Joey Wheeler oversaw the do in a private Kensington Palace session.

He uses the “scissor over comb” freehand technique which results in a softer finish, making it less severe than clippers.

Prince William got everyone talking this week after arriving to a royal engagement on Thursday with a brand new hairdo. The second-in-line to the throne sported a buzzcut when he appeared at Evelina London on Thursday as part of the charity Step Into Health, and it has now been revealed that the hairdresser behind his brand new look was award-winning celebrity hair stylist Joey Wheeler. The haircut set William back £180, and was done at Kensington Palace. Joey’s long list of famous clients including Declan Donnelly, Lewis Hamilton and Michael Caine – to name but a few.

Prince William debuted his new haircut by Joey Wheeler on Thursday

Joey is the Senior Stylist at Richard Ward, where he has been working for the past 11 years. The hairdresser has won the salon’s Junior of the Year competition twice, and the Employee Of The Year award throughout his reign, with his hair styling described on the Richard Ward website as “unique” and “sharp”. Along with styling the hair of well-known faces, Joey has also worked for the likes of Vogue magazine on fashion shoots. When he isn’t working, Joey enjoys travelling with his partner Sophie Jennings – with the pair frequently sharing snaps from exotic locations on their respective Instagram accounts.

Joey Wheeler is the Senior Stylist at Richard Ward

Richard Ward himself – who Joey has worked closely with over the years – has previously cut and styled William’s wife’s hair. Richard memorably cut the Duchess of Cambridge a grown-out fringe back in 2015, which was dubbed the ‘gringe’. Richard then appeared on This Morning to style the look on presenter Holly Willoughby, who was “thrilled” with the results. William’s haircut was met with compliments after fans observed his new ‘do on Thursday. Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Keeping it real,” while another joked: “Excellent… If you don’t have much just be honest… top man!” William has previously poked fun at his receding hairline, telling hairstylist Taz Kabria: “I don’t have much hair, I can’t give you much business,” during a visit to a café with a hairdresser’s salon next door.

Prince William has a known sense of humor about his hair—or lack thereof. In September, he joked with a hairstylist, while on a royal visit, about his mostly bald head saying, “I don’t have much hair. I can’t give you much business.” And at a royal appearance on Thursday to support the Step Into Health program (which helps employ veterans in the N.H.S.) on Thursday, the prince revealed that he now has even less business to offer that hairdresser, debuting a mostly shaved head.

William’s close military shave, was, per E! News, reportedly noticeable to those he met at the event. But this hair moment is certainly not the first time that the royal’s hair has become a topic at a public appearance. In 2014, at a shearing demonstration at Sydney Olympic Park in Australia, Kate Middleton took a jab at her husband’s thinning hair. When Lyn Crejan, a farmer from South Wales, showed the royal couple a tuft of wool similar to William’s shade, the duchess made a wisecrack.

“The Prince was interested in the alpaca and as I showed it to them, the princess said he should put it on his head,” Crejan told reporters. “She said, ‘You need it more than me,’ and pointed to his head and he laughed.”

But one’s brother is always the one armed with the best jokes. When he spoke to the BBC about his 2011 wedding toast for William, Prince Harry was sure to include a comment about his balding bro.

“But it’s me and a couple of his friends, and between the three of us, we’ll make sure that we dig him in the ribs a few times and embarrass him,” he said. “And make him lose some hair.”

Prince William finally shaved his balding head — here’s why it’s the best solution for guys with hair loss

  • Prince William recently debuted a newly shaved head after years of resisting his receding hairline.
  • Hair loss is extremely common, especially for men.
  • INSIDER spoke to three top hairstylists about male pattern baldness and embracing a buzz-cut.

Prince William has been rocking some increasingly thin wisps for many years, but finally debuted a newly shaved head on Thursday.

—Elliot Wagland (@elliotwagland) January 18, 2018

Although Prince William is only 35 years old, he is not in the minority with his receding hairline. According to the American Hair Loss Association, over 60% of American men have significantly thinning hair by the age of 32 and approximately 25% of men who experience male pattern baldness begin to lose hair before the age of 21.

Celebrity hairstylist Leon Gorman can sympathize: he began to lose his hair at the age of 25.

“It began to get very thin and when I stood under lights, you could see my scalp. It was a shock,” he told INSIDER. “When I actually shaved it off, I was relieved to find that my head was a good shape. Growing up in the UK, there were a lot of men with comb-overs, like the famous soccer player Bobby Charlton, and I thought he looked ridiculous and I didn’t want to go that way.”

Gorman, who is the the Creative Director at Marie-Lou & D Salon in New York City and founder of Leon Gorman Hair Care, has worked with stars like Ewan McGregor, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway. He believes that the fear of hair loss is particularly intense for people who tend to broadcast their appearances on social media. However, there are benefits to embracing it.

“As soon as you lose 65% to 75% percent of your hair its time to start thinking of a new look,” he said. “To be honest it’s down to the individual, but for me, I felt younger and fresher.”

Big love @courtneylove for visiting are salon @marielouandd ❤️🚬

A post shared by Leon Gorman (@leongorman) on May 18, 2017 at 2:31pm PDTMay 18, 2017 at 2:31pm PDT

According to Gorman, clients with receding hairlines often ask for styles and cuts to make their hair look thicker.

“The best way to achieve this is to actually cut short the area where it’s balding,” he said. “This creates fullness and texture in that specific area.”

“The irony in thinning hair is that the shorter you cut it, the thicker it will look,” Brooklyn hairdresser Tommy Lovell told INSIDER.

Lovell says that pulling off a shaved head — or any haircut, for that matter — needs only one thing: confidence.

“I’ve never told anyone that they should shave their head. I think each person should figure that out on their own,” Lovell told INSIDER. “I had one client who wanted his hair to look like he didn’t care. And I said, ‘well the way you achieve that is you’ve got to stop caring.’ I can’t do that for you.”

Lovell, who co-owns WHITEROOM Salon and Apothecary with his wife, sees his job as giving his clients exactly what they want — which often empowers them to wear the style with confidence — rather than advising them for or against a certain look. And although he agrees that there are benefits to embracing baldness, he believes that each person must come to that conclusion of their own accord.

“I feel like as the hairline recedes, generally men want to cover it up, or they have historically. What I’m seeing less and less of is and actually a specific desire to not look like they’re covering it up,” Lovell told INSIDER.


A post shared by WHITEROOM (@whiteroombrooklyn) on Jun 7, 2016 at 2:07pm PDTJun 7, 2016 at 2:07pm PDT

“I have several men whose hairlines are receding and they almost want to show it off because they’re really afraid that if they let any hair go over it, it’s just going to look like they’re trying to cover it up,” he said. “This is definitely a shift I’ve seen over the past few years, for sure. I’m not sure why, but I’m really glad it’s happening.”

Prince William joins a growing list of men who wear their hairless heads with pride, but there are steps you can take to discourage hair loss if you still feel apprehensive.

Lovell recommends stimulating your scalp — massaging with natural oils, for example — and avoiding heavy styling products that might clog the scalp and damage follicles further. For products, Lovell’s salon carries Reverie’s CAKE Restorative Scalp Tonic, while Gorman recommends his brand’s own Organic Seaweed Shampoo for Hair Growth.

Renowned New York stylist Nunzio Saviano recommends Rogaine, a regrowth treatment, “as it actually does work to stimulate hair growth,” but cautions that it is “a commitment.”

“If Rogaine does not work I recommend they take Propecia, a hair growth supplement that requires a prescription from a doctor,” Saviano told INSIDER. “As a final way to combat hair loss, if you don’t want to embrace it and go bald, there is hair transplant surgery.”

Although it certainly took Prince William a number of years to come to terms with his new look, one thing is clear: the Duke of Cambridge is a certified heartthrob, with or without hair.

Congratulations are in order for the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, who just joined the hot dudes with shaved heads club. On Thursday, William, the second in line to the British royal throne, stepped out with a newly-shaved head as he helped launch the Step Into Health program at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital in Lambeth. William met with families of patients, former vets, and staff in support of a new program that helps folks find work in the National Health Service.

William now belongs in a club that includes everyone from Jason Statham to Vin Diesel to The Rock. Fine, he might not be an action movie star (though he does appear as a Stormtrooper with Harry in the latest Star Wars film), but one day, he will be king. And somehow, his new hairstyle makes it easier to imagine a crown resting on that strong, shiny head.

By the way, the buzz cut is super fresh. It likely happened in the last 48 hours, seeing as he was still sporting his old hairstyle on Tuesday when he and Kate Middleton, who always has fantastic hair, attended a royal engagement in Coventry.

It’s a big step for William, who joked in September 2017 while meeting with hairdressers for a royal event, “I don’t have much hair, I can’t give you much business” (via PEOPLE).

PRINCE William has debuted a new hairstyle – a daring buzzcut.

The second-in-line to the throne was snapped today with the new hairstyle while visiting children in hospital.

5 Prince William shows off his new buzzcut

The royal met with patients during a visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital, in London.

The dad of two was all smiles as he shook hands with the young patients this afternoon, shown around by former veterans who found work in the NHS thanks to Step into Health.

The programme helps to ease veterans back into civilian, life, using the skills of the ex-service men and women to benefit the health service.

The attention on Prince William’s hair could up him in the fashion stakes against his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate makes headlines almost every time she steps out thanks to her savvy fashion.

Kate favours the polished princess look, with simple pencil dresses and nude court shoes being her chosen fashion formula.

Kate’s favourite J Brand skinny jeans flatter her figure perfectly, but teaming them with a Breton top, blazer and wedges became tiresome after a few wears.

The couple are expecting their third child together later this year, making it a big year for the royal family.

The line of succession to the British throne kicks off with Prince Charles, the Queen’s eldest child.

After Charles, Prince William is up next, with his children George and Charlotte following in third and fourth.

William’s brother, Prince Harry, comes after all of William’s children (and any possible future children) in the line of succession, meaning he is currently fifth in line to the throne.

Prince William’s new haircut shows confidence, claims hair expert

Prince William’s new haircut demonstrates confidence, a hair expert has claimed.

Earlier today, Prince William revealed a much shorter hairstyle while visiting patients at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

While many might think nothing of a man having his hair cut slightly shorter than usual, for an individual who spends so much time in the public eye, it’s making a huge statement.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

It’s long been noted that Prince William’s hair has been slightly receding over time.

With that in mind, celebrity hair stylist Joe Mills of believes that the future king’s decision to show off his new look at such a public occasion demonstrates great self-assurance.

“For a long time comments have been made, especially online and in the press, about the fact that his hair is thinning and he’s losing his hair,” Mills told The Independent.

“I think him just literally going I’m going to crop my hair off is a really strong statement, a very confident statement.

“If you are photographed and in the public eye to that degree it’s very, very hard to look great all the time.

“I think it suits him, I think he looks great with it.”

For many men facing hair loss, the prospect of shaving off their remaining hair isn’t something they’d like to consider.

There have been huge advancements for hair loss treatments in the last few years, as Mills explained.

“I think the shift in the last few years has been quite dramatic,” he said.

“If you go back 10 or 15 years, hair transplants were brutal, there was a lot of scarring and they didn’t necessarily look great.

“The advances even in the last three years have been outstanding.”

In Mills’ point of view, as a man with a full head of hair, he would only shave off his hair as a last resort.

However, there are many things that he considers when men with thinning hair ask for his advice.

“It’s case by case,” he says. “If a guy came in and said what should I do, I’d judge it on their lifestyle, what do they do, do they train every day.

“The key to it is, how do you feel about it. Because you’re the one that has to wear it.”

Mills has spotted a number of men out and about with wispy hair who he thinks would benefit from a shorter cut.

Perhaps Prince William’s chic new look will inspire others to take the plunge.

Prince William Has Had A Drastic Hair Cut And Fans Are Shocked!

18 January 2018, 14:54 | Updated: 18 January 2018, 15:11

The prince has had a royal haircut that has left him looking very different!

Prince William has been famously balding for a while now, but he’s a prince after all and we think he pulls it off well.

But he recently stepped out at a royal engagement at Evelina Children’s Hospital in London sporting his new do, much to the surprise of many of his fans.

Picture: PA

The second-in-line to the throne was sporting a brave buzzcut as he met young patients at the hospital and was taken on a tour around the site.

His wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, always makes headlines at public appearances thanks to her effortlessly chic dress sense and the flattering clothes she wears.

So we wonder if he’s chuffed to be turning heads with his new hair cut!

Picture: PA

As with many men of a certain age, balding is a problem for Prince William but we think this new haircut makes the most of his hairline and really flatters.

Could he be trying out a new look for the royal wedding?

Like me, Prince William descends from a long line of slapheads. And, like me, he has admitted defeat, yesterday becoming the first in the family to baldly go where no man has gone before; he has, at the age of 35, buzzed off his surviving hair.

Duke, what took you so long? I was born two months before Wills and have suffered a similar rate of loss. But I took the grade-zero leap about three years ago. It takes guts, but I have not looked back and can now offer the hairless heir my guide to being bald. Properly bald.

• It can be hard to give up your barber (I had gone to mine since I was about six), but now that you are bald-bald you can DIY your bonce with clippers and save all us taxpayers some cash. I recommend the rechargeable Wahl haircut and beard trimmer, still only £29.99 at Argos. Once a fortnight will do. Get the duchess to check your crown for missed bits.

• People will react; in your case, in every newspaper in the world. But they will react positively and you will wish you had done it sooner. The mickey-taking will cease, so enjoy that. A French former housemate helped tip me over the edge when he described the sorry tuft clinging to my forehead as my “petit chapeau”.

• Beware the weather during walkabouts and polo tournaments. I am afraid you have entered the age in a man’s life where hats become a thing, in winter and summer, when you will also need to slap on the factor 30 every day.

• From one tall baldy to another: beware low doorways. Bumps that would be forgotten under a mop of hair now become lumps or worse. The payoff for this, along with the convenience, is that your grey hairs won’t show – and your children now have nothing to pull.

• But remember this: you are still bald. At best, you are more Grant Mitchell than David Beckham circa 2000, so use your height to avoid photos from above and choose your profile pics wisely. My last piece of advice: stop shaving your face and trim everything at once (in my house we call this the “full Statham”, perhaps optimistically).

What makes a buzz cut? Is a full head of hair required? We ask ourselves these questions today as Prince William unveils a new haircut that both is a buzz cut and isn’t one. It’s confounding, and I love it.

The Harry Potter enthusiast unveiled his new head at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, where he greeted children and staff and displayed a terrifying level of confidence, both dazzling and confusing onlookers as their minds expand and contract rapidly to identify the style, for which there is no precedent. (Some Twitter users have called the shear an homage to Prince Edward, who, upon closer inspection, has the same hair as William pre-buzz, probably because they are blood relatives. This is a stretch and I will not allow it.)

The why behind the cut atop the Prince is pretty clear: He’s been weathering a slow descent into baldness for the better part of his adult life, so the buzz seems to broadcast that he has accepted his fate. To men everywhere who find themselves in the same boat—a boat populated by men rapidly losing their hair—the buzz also broadcasts an important piece of grooming advice: Lean in to the bare scalp look when you have no other choice. Now you don’t look like a guy who is balding! You look like a guy who might be in the military, or a premier league club. Please show some respect.

Prince Billy had two options: 1) Continue to grow hair and pretend nothing is wrong, or 2) accelerate the process to its natural conclusion by shaving it off. Those two, plus hundreds of other options because he is a handsome and wealthy Prince. He chose correctly, and on this day, we celebrate him.

The fact remains that we have no precise language for his new cut, as it bucks the traditional definition of a buzz but does not commit to true baldness. What do you call a close crop of hair that is bald on top? Some suggestions: The Prince William, the Royal Thrush, the Prince Edward Deluxe, the Kate’s Delight. What an exciting moment in grooming history for all involved.

PRINCE William sports a dramatic new hairstyle after forking out £180 on a No1 buzz cut.

The 35-year-old heir to the throne took the plunge after seeking advice from wife Kate Middleton’s long-time hairdresser Richard Ward.

Celebrity hairdresser Adee Phelan gave Wills’ new cut an enthusiastic thumbs-up.

He said: “William looks amazing — a million times better. When you’re going bald you have two options. A skinhead transplant known as scalp micro pigmentation so it’s less apparent you’re going bald. Or you just lump it off.


BARBER Antony Kent said the Prince could have got the same cut for far less at his salon.

Antony who runs Kent’s Hairdressers in Birmingham, said: “That price has no relation to the actual cost — if Wills came in here he’d get the same cut for just over a tenner.

“I guess it’s the price of privacy. He’s paying for them to be discreet.”
