The Love Island star admitted he’s always felt insecure about his hairline, so decided to take action.
Sharing a picture of himself with a bloody hairline following the painful procedure, Alex opened up to his 688k followers.
“So the reason I’ve been off the radar a little bit the past few days is I’ve undergone some surgery,” he wrote.
He added that he’d taken inspiration from former X Factor star Jake Quickenden after he underwent the same procedure.
“Something I’ve been extremely insecure about for years.. my hairline. Although I’m not loosing any hair I’ve always had a issue about the height of my hairline so after seeing @jakequickenden14 reaching out and telling the world his story I got in contact with him for more info,” he said.
“He reassured me and then put me in contact with @kslhairltd who then took me in for a consultation about it and showed me what they could do for me.

“After having the procedure a couple of days ago I’m now resting with a swollen head (which goes down in a couple of days) and a hairline I’m so so happy with! So glad I had this done even though many of you will say I didn’t need it I honestly hated it.”
Montana Brown’s ex added: “So many people getting all kinds of surgeries these days from teeth, nose jobs, lips, boobs, lipo and many more I’m not ashamed to say I’ve had some work done.
“I know of many men close to me that share the same issue and wanted more info immediately once I told them what I was getting done. So if any of you have any questions or queries feel free to inbox me I’ll get through them ALL!
“Any haters find somewhere else to comment because I’m blind to your ignorance,” he added. “Much love.”
Alex was instantly flooded with messages of support from fans, with one saying: “Never thought anything was wrong with your hairline but if it made you insecure in glad you’ve managed to address it.”
Another added: “You can’t please everyone so focus on doing what makes you happy that’s all that matters.”
