Will I need to have my hair cut for the FUE technique?

Yes; the hair follicles should be visible just on the surface of the skin in order to be able to extract them individually without any problems. This requires a grade 1 haircut. However, if hair thinning is observed in a limited area and if a small number of hair follicles are required, you may not need to have your whole hair cut. The hair on the donor site is cut as narrow strips, and as this site is covered by the long hair shafts immediately above, the area which is cut is not visible.
