Bret Michaels is at an age where balding would not be a complete surprise, but there are a few reasons why Bret's hair is so widely speculated about.
One of the main reasons why the question, "Is Bret Michaels bald?" is so difficult to answer is because he is almost always seen wearing a bandana on his head.
While most people would quickly assume that the presence of the bandana automatically means that Bret must be trying to avoid revealing a bald head, it is important to remember where Bret comes from.
For people trying to discover the true status of Bret's hair, the bandana is a real problem.
Still, the existence of extensions would point to the existence of real hair for the extensions to attach to, so if Bret has extensions it means that there has to be some hair on his head.
The bandana is such a prevalent accessory for Bret that he was even photographed wearing the bandana while in a hospital bed after his 2010 brain hemorrhage.
When asked about the bandana in the hospital, Bret did not admit that it had anything to do with balding, but instead made the claim that he wanted to make sure that if he was going to die, he wanted to "go out rockin'."
Theories abound as to whether Bret is bald or not.
There are some recent photographs and filmed footage of Bret without his bandana or hat, but the problem is that many people speculate that he is actually wearing a full wig in these appearances.
A former Rock of Love contestant told the media that she personally pulled on Bret's hair and that it certainly not a wig, although she did make the claim that he does wear extensions.
This leads some to speculate that Bret wears a full wig when appearing without his bandana or hat, but only wears extensions when something is covering his head.
Despite Bret's appearances without a bandana or hat, the wig-like look to his hair allows the debate to rage on.
There is a good chance that the debate will continue unless Bret comes forward and definitively makes the statement that yes, he is bald.
