Just curious but has anyone had experience with telling their work colleagues or bosses that they were going to get a hair transplant to clear the air, etc.? Or have you told them after the fact at all? If so, what was their reaction like / how did people take it generally? I’m planning on getting a HT this year and honestly considering just telling my 2 main bosses straight up what I’m gonna do because I’m 100% sure they will notice it when I’m back at work; I know this because I’ll have at least 2500 grafts done in the front primarily, which WILL be noticeable even with a concealing hair style, and i know both of them are very clued in to appearances and somewhat vain themselves. One of my bosses literally even makes comments about my appearance and my hair sometimes if I have a ‘bad day’ or if something is “off” – he does it sort of in a prick-ish endearing way but he’s literally said multiple times like “what the fuck!” or “You need a haircut man!” So my point is i know 100% they will notice either way when I come back to work, and I feel that by just telling them up front, I may not only clear the air completely and remove any anxiety or awkwardness, but could maybe even gain a little respect or support. Anyway, does any one have thoughts or experience on this?
I have had men successfully hide the hair transplant, that is, if they do the strip method as the removed strip area is covered with hair and the recipient area is cleanly washed. If you have frontal hair you can come it forward and cover the recipient graft.
