Cheyenne Jackson is showing off his massive hair transplant scar and boy does it look painful, ouch! The 6’4″ American Horror Story actor is known for his classic good looks and has the stunning combination of piercing blue eyes, with dark hair. To see Cheyenne without his hair would be different, but for Cheyenne, the thought became one filled with anxiety and dread. To combat the fear that people would find out his secret, he openly shared a photo of his scar on Instagram and revealed that he has had not one — but five hair transplant surgeries.

Cheyenne is married to Jason Landau and the couple has two children. It appears that Cheyenne struggled more with losing his hair as he began experiencing hair loss at the young age of 22-years-old. Cheyenne had a whole career ahead of him on stage and screen so it makes sense that losing his hair would have presented additional challenges for him.

Cheyenne stated the following on Instagram.

I’ve been DREADING this day for 17 years. The day when my horrible secret would be revealed.
No, this gnarly scar across my head isn’t from life-saving brain surgery, nor did I narrowly survive a shark attack.
It’s worse. (At least in Hollywood…) I had hair transplant surgery. 5 of them, to be exact over 14 years.”

Cheyenne made it clear that he didn’t think his hair loss was the most important topic of discussion — especially with all that has happened due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but he wanted to release himself from the fear of keeping the secret. He continued by saying the following.

“I started losing my hair around 22. My older brother was balding too, but was way braver & cooler & just shaved his off. It was really emotional for me to watch it fall out & I felt less attractive & truly less like myself as the days went on, so I saved up and got my first surgery at 28. I hid it from everyone. It was painful & expensive but I started to feel better about myself.”

I’ve been DREADING this day for 17 years. The day when my horrible secret would be revealed. No, this gnarly scar across my head isn’t from life-saving brain surgery, nor did I narrowly survive a shark attack. It’s worse. (At least in Hollywood…) I had hair transplant surgery. 5 of them, to be exact over 14 years. My inner monologue is “Really Cheyenne? With everything that’s going on in the world, you’re CONFESSING that you had hair surgery? Get over yourself.” I get it, but I’m admitting this really, to RELEASE how much shame & anxiety I’ve had about people finding out for years. I started losing my hair around 22. My older brother was balding too, but was way braver & cooler & just shaved his off. It was really emotional for me to watch it fall out & I felt less attractive & truly less like myself as the days went on, so I saved up and got my first surgery at 28. I hid it from everyone. It was painful & expensive but I started to feel better about myself. Over the years as my hair kept thinning, I kept secretly getting more procedures & would just pray that no one would find out. Why? Why did I care so much? What does that say about me? Being a vain actor in an industry that rewards beauty, I vowed to keep this my secret forever. I feel SO stupid saying that but it’s my truth. As if someone finding out would somehow negate my talent, or make me less viable or valuable in the world. At the beginning of every job, I’d secretly gather the hair & makeup people, dramatically close the door of the trailer, & make a big deal about REVEALING my devastating truth. Every. Single. Time. they basically said “ummm…yeah…so?” NO ONE CARED BUT ME! I’m sharing because maybe this will inspire someone out there to share a secret they’ve been hiding, or show a scar that they’ve been afraid of anyone seeing. Let it go. What I’ve learned during this pandemic is that shit like this just doesn’t matter. I’m trying to teach my kids to accept themselves & to be proud of who they are, & to put value on things that are IMPORTANT & REAL so as their father, the example should start with me. This is that. I’ll go first. #ShowYourScars

Many people left negative comments on Cheyenne’s post as they didn’t seem to think his hair transplant scar was a big deal. Still, it’s important to realize that Cheyanne revealed his secret to try and help others who are dealing with issues they are trying to keep secret due to fear and shame.

He used the hashtag #showyourscars and spoke about the importance of self-love.

What do you think about Cheyenne Jackson’s message? Were you surprised to learn he underwent five hair transplants and has a large scar around his head?
