"It's nice to have hair, but also if I was bald I would still own it, too. Because bald is beautiful."
Sam Smith is laying it all down on the hairline.
The “Stay with Me” singer — who uses “they/them” pronouns — revealed to Vogue this week that they had hair transplant surgery.
“My hair … it’s been a touchy place for me,” Smith, 28, told the mag in a video. “I haven’t actually spoken about this before, so I’m gonna speak about it because I don’t actually feel like I have anything to hide.”
After two years of dealing with hair loss, Smith said they elected to undergo the procedure on the recommendation of a hairdresser, saying, “How stunning is it?”
“It’s nice to have hair, but also if I was bald I would still own it, too,” they added. “Because bald is beautiful.”
In the clip, Smith also mentioned the importance of makeup to their gender identity as a teen. “It doesn’t matter whatever gender, [makeup] is a form of expression and it feels nice. It’s the poster of your life, really, every single day when you meet people.
“Last year, when I changed my pronouns and really spoke out about my gender expression and my gender fluidity, I started falling in love with makeup all over again.”
In August, Smith was spotted strolling in London and engaging in some PDA with French-born furniture designer Francois Rocci. However, they insisted to Andy Cohen earlier in October that they were “still single,” explaining that they joined dating app Hinge in the UK, only to be “chucked off” when moderators assumed it was a fake profile attempting to catfish other users with Smith’s photo.
After the episode aired, Hinge apologized to Smith on Twitter, adding that they would verify his profile.
