Ladies and gentlemen, start your image editors. Show us how famous people/celebrities would look with bald heads, or (for men) without their trademark beards or mustaches.

It's easy to add hair or a mustache or beard to a celebrity photo. The challenge here is to do the opposite.

Extra points for photoshoppping famous couples to add that bald look.

Photoshop thread rules

The idea for this Photoshop thread came from the discussion in this thread by devilot76 and a nice Photoshop job done by member Lacero.

Hey doc (are you really a doc?), share how you do the PS bald technique and we'll get to see lots of bald celebrity pics here. Looking forward to it!

This is the first and last time I do a PS at 04:20am. That guy has a lot of hair.

HAHA

I should show this to my stepmother (she is a Richard Dean Anderson fan). And yes, IMO anyone with a mullet should be photoshoped.

Yes, really a doc, but not the medical kind. Besides not being able to cure your cold, I'm only a casual Photoshop user.

Extensive rubber stamping might handle foreheads and backgrounds, but there are probably better tricks to the process. I'd like to know too.

On the other hand, we don't have to do good jobs as dubbz did. It's supposed to come out funny-looking, so there's no harm in giving it a try at any skill level. Here, for example, I've borrowed Michael Jordan's head for a quick little Oprah transplant.

In that case, here's a picture of Angelina Jolie and her son that I took in New York last month.

Great job dubbz!
Willing to share your technique?

Woof, Woof – Dawg
Thanks :)

Like ITASOR guessed, in short, I just used lots and lots of clone stamps, plus selections. eg, I used the circle selection tool for his head, and the box one to make it easier to remove the hair at his neck (I'm competely unable to draw a straight line with my mouse :D) Some finishing touches with the blur and sharpen tool.
