“A hair planting method employed by Dr. Szekely in Buda-Pesth is claimed to be a practical one. A gold wire 1/500 inch in diameter is bent to form a loop, barely visible to the naked eye, which is threaded with a woman’s hair of the desired color and from 8 to 12 inches long. The wire is introduced into a short, fine Pravaz hypodermic needle and then bent and cut, forming a tiny hook. The needle is inserted normally, twisted and carefully withdrawn. The doubled hair is anchored by the hook in the subcutaneous tissue. As many as 50,000 hairs may be required for an entirely bald head [see illustration]. Even in this case little more than 15 grains of gold is consumed.”
