Hey we know, male-pattern baldness sucks. Thousands are effected by it every year and the common hair transplant can cost you up to 40 grand. The solution -- hair tattoos. The idea is the brainchild of Ian Watson. When Watson was in his mid-twenties, he lost his brother and developed alopecia due to the resulting stress. Worried about his hair loss and desperate to do something about it, he asked his brother’s widow, Ranbir Rai-Watson to draw dots on his scalp using a fine pen. He hoped that the dots would produce the effect of a cropped haircut. When she was finished, the duo knew their ridiculous idea was actually worth something. The treatment is called the MHT (Micro Hair Technique) Scalp Pigmentation, and yes, I'm not making any of this up. As a part of the treatment, different shades of pigment are applied to the scalp so that the size, density and shape of short hairs are replicated. The pricetag is a mere 3 grand. I'm gonna let Chivers weigh in on this one....
