Liverpool played tonight and here's a tasty fan pic of Nando.
Don't know what's better, the torso or what's happening down in the shorts.
Having said all that, I think Nando's lovely new big muscles are hurting his pace. He really should shed 2-3 kilos at least. I thought he looked a little bit bigger during the WC. Granted he was unfit and it wouldn't have helped anyway, but a slightly lighter Nando will speed his return to form.

r36, hunny, I have seen enough weaves, lacefronts, quick weaves, pieces, toupees, and spray ons to know who is faking the funk. 9 out of 10 times it comes down to the hairline, especially with men. If the hairline is consistent then the rest of the hair is probably his. If its hidden, like Enrique, Charlie Sheen and the rest, it's fake.
Ricky has had a consistent hairline up to this point, and he has a tall forehead. The only time I ever thought he might wear piece was when he was on Oprah a few years back, maybe he started getting plugs done then.

More pictures please! I'd like to learn how to spot these things. (it seems like there must be a website out there devoted to this subject? anyone know of a good one?)
What's-his-face from House, Hugh Laurie, wears a hairpiece to cover his bald spot in the back. For the first couple of seasons he didn't wear anything and the camera operators and editors put in a lot of effort to disguise his bald spot. If you watch season 1 episodes with that in mind it's quite amusing.
So now that all movies and TV are being shot in HD, how are these actors getting away with wigs and weaves? Is it glaringly obvious to those of you who are good at spotting them to begin with?

Ricky Martin also has a lot of gray hair.%0D %0D At times, he lets it show.%0D %0D But other times, he covers it up with brown hair dye, or has a buzz cut where it doesn't show very much.%0D %0D I adore Ricky as an great entertainer in concert, and I love his music in spanish.

The stuff about Martin makes no sense at all.
Of you're able to wear your hair in a buzz cut--which allows no possibility of covering thin areas--then you obviously don't need to wear a wig.
Now, he may choose to wear one on stage, but obviously not balding.

I have it on good authority that Ben Browder and Josh Duhamel are now getting a bit of artificial help up there. Josh Lucas also wears a partial hairpiece behind a genuine hairline which is partly his own, partly plugs.
Enrique's piece is not a great job up close. He never, but never, exposes his hairline - it's always combed down and held there with product. If he is anywhere where the wind could expose his hairline he wears a cap or a bandana. The reason is that his temple points are badly receded, and they are difficult to cover up with a toupee. If his hair were lifted back you would be able to see the lack of side hair, and the artificial nature of his luxuriant fringe would be exposed.
In general, bandanas are frequently a sign of a guy who wears a piece but doesn't want it exposed to the elements or is worried that some sweaty or dirty activity will expose the piece.
