Comb-overs are certainly trending onscreen. Take Christian Bale’s character from American Hustle, Irving Rosenfeld, who spends the opening scene performing an elaborate hair styling procedure — gluing fake patches of hair to his scalp and meticulously arranging his sparse real hair over fake clumps.
