Gordon Ramsay's dodgy hair-do sparks second hair transplant rumours

Gordon Ramsay might have been having a bad hair day, but the foul-mouthed chef still braved friend Victoria Beckham’s 40th birthday bash in London.
The 47-year-old dad looked like he had let his kids create his dodgy hair-do as he joined the star-studded guest-list at London’s Arts Club.
The chef sported longer hair at the front, presumably to draw attention away from the bizarre cut at the back of his head.
The back of Ramsay’s head was tightly shaved and appeared to be covered with a dye product, sparking rumours he has had a second hair transplant.
There were also red pin pricks visible on the nape of his neck, which experts claim is a key sign to having the surgery.
“Under FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), the head is shaved and then individual follicles are harvested from an area of the scalp where the hair is abundant — normally the back or the side of the head,” surgeon Dr Asim Shahmalak told The Daily Express.
“In Ramsay’s case, the hair has been harvested from the back of the head — which is why you can see all the red pin pricks where the follicles have been removed.

“There are two to three individual hairs in each follicle and these are then replanted by the surgeon into the area of the head where the patient is showing signs of male pattern baldness,” he continued.
“It is not clear where the transplanted hair has been placed in Ramsay’s case.
“The long fringe combed forward may be covering the recipient area where he has had worked performed.
“Basically, he will have bolstered a receding hairline. He may have had work on his crown, too,” he added.

Despite Ramsay’s appearance, the TV chef made the most of friend Victoria Beckham’s bash, only leaving the club with wife Tana at 2am.
Victoria and husband David Beckham spent the last few weeks in LA, but travelled home from the States to spend Sunday night in the acclaimed London Arts Club for the party which continued on until the early hours of the morning.
The vintage Arts Club venue was founded in 1863 for people to celebrate the arts, literature and sciences.

The venue includes a drawing room, members’ lounge, conservatory and enclosed garden as well as a host of event rooms.
A crowd of happy faces departed the venue at 2am, including Victoria’s former Spice Girls band-mates Melanie Chrisholm, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton and her younger sister Louise Adams.
