Hair Club for Hipsters?

Hipster wannabes get facial hair transplants | New York Post

$8500 to have your ass hair transplanted to your face. Are these people really that vain??

Interesting. I use my beard to hide my ugly mug and store food, never considered it a point of vanity. Plus not having to shave is about the best thing that ever happened to me.

These hipsters do everything for the wrong reasons

Head and chest. Of course, there might be those that are into butt sniffing and have hair on their ass so they might want that.

You need to ask?

I use my mustache to hide food as well. The dang thing is 11 inches long from the corner of my mouth...it can hold a lot of spare food. Eating soup is a bit of a challenge, as I have to pull the 'stache behind my ears, else it dips in the bowl. The lamb chops are merely there to help hide the ugly.

How anyone can justify putting that kind of money out to look like a homeless person is beyond me.

For some of them, it would be a great improvement to transfer the whole ass to the face. Why stop with the hair?

From the article..."During the procedure, doctors remove hair from other body parts, including the head and chest, before implanting it in the face."

I guess they could transplant pubes to their chin as well.

I'll have to take your word for it since I am not much of an ass man.

I wish I could sell them mine. I would like to be hairless except eye and head hair. Now if I were planning to commit a crime, I'd grow as much facial hair before, commit the crime and shave clean.

I live in a hipster neighborhood and I find that downright funny.

Attempted Beard. A class three misdemeanor isn't it?
Should be, anyhow.
