Patients with dark, straight hair and light skin often demonstrate an unnatural abruptness of the hair- line following traditional methods of hair transplantation. A rapid, practical technique of harvesting grafts of only one and two hairs from standard 4-mm grafts, for the purposes of "softening" the hairline, is described. Recipient sites are made with a 16-gauge angiocath, not a scalpel, for diminished bleeding and, it is hoped, more accurate placement of the graft.
