Why Nicolas Cage Should Be Your Life Coach
Kick-Ass star Nic Cage has had some huge ups and downs in his life. Here are six lessons you can glean from his mistakes—and what to steal from his successes.
Cage Don't: Clinging desperately to youth through eccentric grooming experiments—his hair often rivals Donald Trump's in its lack of credibility. And like Brad Pitt, when Cage has the opportunity to sport ridiculous facial hair (like his shaggy look in Raising Arizona) he doesn't rush to get rid of it for real life.
You Do: If you're thinning out up top, look to a different action star: Bruce Willis. "If you can walk tall like Bruce, baldness is a low-maintenance and money-saving approach," says John Allan, a grooming expert and the founder of John Allan's. "Your hair doesn't need to be shaved, just taken down very short." If you do attempt a drastic fix—like transplants or Propecia—don't wait to start. "Everyone loses hair over time, but a step-by-step approach early will be more effective and undetectable," says Allan.
