Jamie Foxx showed off his new artificial hair. He's the latest Black man to have jumped on the man-weave bandwagon.

Man weaves are cranial prosthesis, hair replacement units or hair systems, that are a nonsurgical procedure to help men who've lost their hair — be it through just balding or thinning, alopecia or cancer treatments — "regain" hair.

Jamie has been fighting male pattern baldness for years. Yesterday he unveiled his new weave - which is a combination of dyes and a hair replacement unit.

Man weaves have been growing in popularity - mainly because of social media. And the cost of getting a man-weave is coming down. Just two years ago, a man-weave cost more than $300. Now the average cost of a good weave is under $100.

Jamie, whose real name is Eric Marlon Bishop, is an Oscar winning actor, Grammy winning singer, songwriter, record producer, and a top comedian.


According to TMZ, the actor was out for lunch with a pal at the Malibu Village shopping center Wednesday afternoon when he came upon the K5 Knightscope -- an autonomous surveillance machine, and possible distant cousin of R2-D2.


Foxx has two daughters: Corinne (born 1994) and Annalise (born August 2009). Corinne made her formal debut at the Bal des débutantes in November 2014 and was named Miss Golden Globe 2016 on November 18, 2015.

In 2008, Foxx filmed a public service announcement for Do Something to promote food drives in local communities
