Bald men have ‘hair’ tattooed on their scalp

BRITISH men can now save money and heartache in their search for a baldness remedy — by getting “hair” tattoos.

The Sun Newspaper reports that:
Statistics say 10 million men in the UK currently suffer from hair loss, with 50 per cent affected by male-pattern baldness by the age of 50.
Research shows that going bald can be more traumatic than going bust — or not finding the love of your life.
And British men worry about the onset of baldness more than the rest of Europe.
In response to this, HIS (Hair-Ink-Skin) Hair have launched an innovative new technique to disguise baldness — a unique form of tattoos.
Celebrity Hairdresser, Adee Phelan, who officially opened the company’s newest clinic in Manchester, is one of dozens to have had the new procedure, known as MHT (micro hair technique) scalp pigmentation.
It gives the appearance of a buzz cut by applying different shades of pigment to the scalp that replicates the size, shape and density of short hairs.
TV stylist Adee, whose clients have included David Beckham, Kerry Katona, Elizabeth Jagger, Sarah Harding and the England Football team, said: “I was 24 when I started losing my hair. I got behind this product because I know it looks good.
“Going bald didn’t particularly bother me but there are guys out there who are literally suicidal about it.
“Stars like Wayne Rooney, tweeting about having a hair transplant, have really helped the cause and encouraged people to face it head-on. But not everybody has £25,000 to spend and this is a great affordable alternative.”
The technique, which costs an average of £2,000, was developed by Ian Watson, who developed alopecia in his mid-20s, following the tragic death of his brother, Paul.
In desperation, Ian asked Paul’s widow, Ranbir Rai-Watson to find the finest pen she could get to draw dots onto his scalp, hoping to emulate the look of a cropped haircut.
The ink came off in the shower but Ian, now 42, and mother-of-one Ranbir, 41, knew their “crazy idea” could become a successful business.
After years of intensive research, they enlisted the help of hair loss experts and semi-permanent make-up artists to hone the MHT technique. 
A decade later, the Birmingham-based company is opening clinics across Europe and the US.
Adee said: “The crop will always be fashionable.
“This is a great permanent, non-surgical option that can disguise everything from male-pattern baldness to receding hairlines and scars on your head.
“I thought losing my hair didn’t bother me but even I felt younger and more confident afterwards.
“And it looks so natural, most people don’t even know I’ve had it done.”
