As Hibs legend Steven Whittaker makes headlines for taking the Dunfermline player-coach role, we want to direct your attention to his hair. A look back over his playing career will show that he was experiencing hair loss as a young man.
His hairline was receding before he underwent a transformation and came back with a full head of hair. This was down to the work of a skilled hair transplant clinic, and the results speak for themselves. Let’s take a look at Steven Whittaker’s hair transplant.
Steven Whittaker hair transplant before and after
As you can see from the picture above, Steven Whittaker pulled off the rare feat of looking younger as he got older. In his younger days, he was experiencing a receding hairline that made him look older than he was.
He took the step to address his hair loss by getting an FUE hair transplant. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Excision, whereby the back of the head is shaved, individual hair follicles are removed (grafts), and placed into tiny cuts made in the affected hair loss areas of the scalp. These grafts continue to grow in the new location to address the receding hairline. There will be lots of tiny scars (about 1mm in diameter), but they will be covered by the hair as it regrows (full results are generally seen within a year).
FUE hair transplants usually take a day to complete with patients given an anesthetic to ensure the procedure is comfortable. These sessions will need to be several months apart, and when treatment is complete, you will be given information to help with recovery and caring for the graft. If you’re interested, here’s a guide that will explain the patient journey at the Treatment Rooms London.

As you can see, Steven Whittaker's hair transplant was a tremendous success. His hairline today looks very healthy and natural. It is sure to be a tremendous confidence-booster for an individual who is photographed so often, but it can work wonders for the confidence of anyone who experiences hair loss. The key is to work with a reputable surgeon from a reliable clinic to get the best results.
Despite being very common, male pattern baldness is often associated with the development of depression, anxiety, and poor self-image. So many people seek 'miracle cures' from less-than-reputable sources to address the problem, but a hair transplant is often the most effective way to restore your lost hairline. There do exist non-surgical hair loss treatments that can help slow down hair loss but, hair transplant surgery remains the most effective way of revitalising those luscious locks.
