Where exactly should the donor hair be taken from on the back of the head? How high or low should the area be and how long?
The donor hair is best taken from the back of the head just below the palpable ridge as well as the sides of the head approximately 1 to 1 ½ inches above the ears. This is the region of hair that typically remains throughout a lifetime, and therefore, is an excellent donor site. The length of the donor strip depends on how much hair is needed and the density of your hair.
