Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has undergone a hair transplant. He went bald due to the stress of playing for so many years. The 46-year-old acknowledged that he was informed about his hair loss by his old school friends. He was paranoid about the prospect of turning bald. The Manchester United legend now part-owns the MHR Clinic in Knutsford, Cheshire where he was cured. He owns it along with Michael Vaughan (the former England cricket captain) and hair treatment expert Craig Henton.
Ryan Giggs said that he was very paranoid about going bald. After the game against Liverpool, Giggs expected to be praised for his brace but all he heard were taunts for his hair loss. Ryan Giggs cited stress as a significant reason for hair loss. Giggs had a playing career at Manchester United which spanned over two decades. The Welsh winger said that footballers are put under a lot of pressure because they are aware of the consequences if one has a bad day. One of the firm’s first customers, Ryan Giggs was so impressed with the results that he went on to buy a share in the company.
Ryan Giggs kept his hair transplant a secret due to the stigma associated with it. He believes that it has reduced to some effect. Giggs praised former Manchester United captain and teammate Wayne Rooney for breaking the hoodoo and being open about the hair transplant treatment. Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg, Dancing On Ice star and former England fast bowler Ryan Sidebottom and BBC weatherman Simon King have since had hair transplants at Ryan Giggs’ clinic.
