EXCLUSIVE: Did your toddler cut your hair, Elon? World’s richest man Musk sports wild Mohawk as he touches down in Miami with son X Æ A-XII and dog Marvin in tow
With a personal fortune of close to $300billion at his disposal, the world’s wealthiest man Elon Musk could afford any haircut he desires, and this week the eccentric billionaire opted for a very quirky Mohawk.
The founder and CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX debuted his avant-garde new look when he was photographed landing in Miami on Wednesday night.
Musk, 50, flew in on a private jet ahead of Art Basel Miami, the exclusive international art fair known for glamorous parties and celebrity sightings, which got under way on Thursday and will run through Saturday.
The trailblazing businessman put his new ‘do on full display, showing off the shaved sides of his head, topped with a shock of wavy, richly hued chestnut hair running from his forehead down to the nape of his neck, and revealing his taut face.
Musk’s tresses have long been the source of much speculation online, with at least one expert telling Page Six in 2018 that it is ‘highly, highly likely’ that the tech mogul has undergone hair transplant surgery.
Photos of Musk from his time at PayPal 20 years ago show the fresh-faced South African native with a visibly receding hairline, but since then the entrepreneur’s mane grown thicker and darker, suggesting surgical intervention and a hair care routine possibly involving dyes to give Musk a more youthful and vigorous look.
