Son Uses Trimmings To Give Receding Dad Lockdown Hair Transplant
| Last updated
At this stage, surely all of us know someone who has had a dodgy lockdown haircut. It's become the new normal, almost. But do any of you know somebody who has had a lockdown hair transplant?
Nick Russell, from Mortlake, London, is quite precious about his hair, but having returned from Vietnam shortly before quarantine measures were introduced, his barnet was beginning to get out of control.
Sensing he was getting desperate, the 26-year-old's brother Mark begged for the opportunity to cut it for him, proposing that they use the trimmings to fill in their dad Colin's receding hairline; a win win, if you will.
Nick agreed on the proviso that their old man was up for the hair transplant, assuming he would say no, but when Mark put it to Colin, 56, he replied: "I'm up for that, I could do with a bit more hair."
Golf clubhouse manager Nick immediately regretted his decision and said the 45 minutes his brother spent cutting his hair with a beard trimmer and kitchen scissors - the first time he had ever cut anyone's hair - was 'not the most comfortable experience I've had'.
Mark 'didn't do a bad job' of the short back and sides though and they collected up the trimmings and got to work on potentially the first ever lockdown hair transplant.
Speaking to LADbible, Nick said: "After washing my hair, me and my brother went into the garden armed with a pot of my loose hair, PVA glue and a paint brush.
"We called my dad over, who was working in his shed and told him to sit down as it was his turn. He laughed and after a little hesitation he was sat down and ready.
"My brother filmed as I painted Dad a new hair line in PVA glue before proceeding to stick my hair across his forehead. It was the first time he had had a fringe in 30 years.
"It took about 15 minutes to glue all the hair down but once I had finished we burst into hysterics. The end product was better than imagined."
Maintenance engineer Colin was happy with his new look too, but unfortunately, his wife Sharon didn't feel the same way.
Nick said: "Dad went to see his new hair in the mirror, he loved it so much that he kept it on until after dinner almost seven hours later.
"Dad asked mum if she liked what she saw - her response was 'you're sleeping on the sofa tonight'."
Ah well, you can't please them all.
