- Wayne Rooney’s bald cure
Ace makes secret visit to hair clinic
BALDY Wayne Rooney is having secret treatment to grow his hair back, The Sun can reveal. The Man United and England star, 25, was seen this week leaving a clinic off London's famous Harley Street, where hi-tech eight-hour sessions for VIP clients cost thousands.
A source said: "Wayne booked in for a two-day treatment. He'll look five years younger."
Rooney, suspended for today's international against Switzerland, had his head covered with a baseball cap AND a hoodie despite the heat as he left Queen Anne Street Medical Centre in Central London on Thursday.
He refused to comment as he made a hurried exit and climbed into a chauffeur-driven motor.
The centre is home to the Harley Street Hair Clinic.
The source added last night: "Wayne has been thinking about treatment for some time. He asked to meet a model who had the procedure and was so impressed he booked in for a two-day treatment. Doctors have told him to expect significant improvement."
The clinic boasts baldness cures including Follicular Unit Extraction.
This involves taking thousands of hair follicles from where they are plentiful, usually at the back of the head, and "planting" them in a bald area.
Patients may wear hats to hide tell-tale specks of blood. Rooney had previously tried pills and lotion.
Today the football ace took to Twitter to confirm to his fans he was delighted with the surgery.
He said: "Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I'm delighted with the result.
"It's still a bit bruised and swollen when it dies down u will be first to see it. Anyone recommend any good hair gel. Haha.
"I had it done in Harley street hair clinic London. Thanks to all the staff who looked after me."
He also joked his followers should try and make the topic one of the most talked about on Twitter.
He added: "Hi all let's try and get #hairwego trending."
Wife Colleen also weighed in to say she too was happy with Wayne's choice - but denied she had suggested he went for the op.
She said: "Hiya!! Yes waynes had his hair done! His own decision not me asking him, like alot are saying!!
"Pleased for him and it will look great x"
Team mate Rio Ferdinand also tweeted his support, but warned him about adopting a silly hairstyle.
He said: "Just don't go down the wearing a alice band route!!
"You'll be doing head&shoulders adverts soon! Hope its gone ok Good luck lad."
