Gone today, hair tomorrow: the world of hair transplants

For anyone who missed my piece in the Telegraph Style Supplement, you can read it by clicking on the image below. 

Oh, and here’s a little paragraph that ended up on the paper’s cutting room floor but which I think gives you an insight into why I fear anything to do with hair restoration!

“This is certainly a far cry from the days when men either reluctantly accepted baldness or threw caution, along with self-respect, to the wind and donned a toupée – an accessory guaranteed to elicit derision and terrify small children. I myself am psychologically scarred after seeing corner shop owner Arthur Moore’s syrup tumble into a crate of apples when I was a seven year old (I thought the top of his head had fallen off).”

    Great blog piece. Personally, my hair started falling out at 13 years old, so can relate to this. Did it stop me in my strides? Erm, no.
