US hipsters beard trend leads to increase in hair transplants
There’s no denying that the beard is well and truly back in favour. No better fact backs this up than the story coming from the US where in Brooklyn New York, which is the US equivalent to London’s trendy East End, male hipsters are paying over £4,200 for hair transplants– in their beards!
Dr Yael Halaas, a facial plastic surgeon based in Manhattan, reported that increasing numbers of men in their late 20s and early 40s are seeking out the procedure.
The demand for it has definitely increased is was reported.
Much like with balding men losing hair men generally undergo the surgery as a consequence of being unable to grow full beards themselves. Additionally it can be related to the effects of acne scarring.
But while 90% of the transplanted hair tends to flourish, it can take as long as 10 months to see the full bushy result.
But some New York hipsters who try to hide that they have inauthentic beards, travel as far as Florida to undergo the one-day transformation without raising suspicions.
What do you think about this trend? Would you consider a beard hair transplant?
