Taking care of some promotional duties for his hit series “Two and a Half Men,” Jon Cryer stopped by the set of ” Conan” on Monday (November 11).
While discussing his time on the set of “Pretty in Pink,” the 48-year-old actor revealed his ultimate secret: he no longer has hair.
“This is an elaborate illusion,” Cryer explained pointing to the top of his head. “This is the work of several talented professionals making the most of like four hairs.”
Jon added, “It”s amazing, actually, what they can do. I”m not wearing a piece – or anything like that – but it”s a long involved process that starts with stuff like shoe polish, basically, that they coat the top.”
While continuing to discuss the process, Cryer demonstrated by painting his head. “They basically just paint – they get a roller type thing – and just whoosh along the top. You have to decide if you”re going to go full [John] Travolta and get the full front in. And then they literally sprinkle powder in from a salt shaker. So this is, like I said, four or five hairs.”
In regards to what happens when he”s caught in the rain, Jon answered, “You”re out of luck. It flattens out and you get the nice little rivulets going down. But thankfully, your eyebrows will channel down the side.”
