The article focuses on different methods of transplanting one to three hairs anterior to the punch transplanted hairline. In this procedure, some single hairs seen superficially on the sides of donor grafts during cleaning are grasped by jeweller's forceps at approximately the midfollicle point and pulled down toward the subcutaneous tissue. These single hairs usually come on quite easily and with much of their follicle intact. With practice, 20 to 24 hairs can be inserted in approximately 5 minutes at the end of each transplant session.
