Where exactly should the donor hair be taken from?

Question:
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?

Answer:
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.
