Graham Molly, a 26 year-old hairdresser with Brown Sugar, recently had an FUE hair transplant at HRBR. In order to finance the procedure, he took out a bank loan. It’s something several patients at HRBR have done in the past. A hair transplant is a permanent solution to hair loss, so they see it as a long-term investment in themselves. So, why did Graham choose an FUE hair transplant over an FUT hair transplant?
Graham has been a hairdresser for the past 7 years and says that he was always aware of hair loss. His dad had lost his hair at an early age and his brother had started to lose his hair. Graham started to notice that his own hair was starting to recede from the age of 18.
working in the salon, you work eight hours a day, five days a week, and you’re constantly in front of a mirror. So, I could see every day as I was blow-drying it or styling it, this is going back further and further.
Deciding on the FUE procedure
When Graham came to HRBR, it was determined that hair transplant surgery was the best option for him. His doctors discussed the two methods that we use at HRBR, an FUE transplant or an FUT transplant. Graham decided that the FUE hair transplant was the best option for him.
Because I’m 26 and I’m a hairdresser, I want to cut my hair differently. I want to shave it off one day, I want to style it one day, I want to do a lot of things. So, it left me with a lot more freedom as to what I could do for the rest of my life
Financing the hair transplant
Graham shared with us that he financed his FUE procedure by getting a bank loan. Here is what he said about that experience. “At the time, I didn’t have the cashflow to go get it done. I didn’t have money put away to get it. So, I went to my bank and applied for a loan. It was pretty straightforward. They didn’t really ask what it was for. If they had asked, I would have told them it was for a hair transplant.” There are lots of options for clients who want to finance their hair transplant with a personal loan from a bank or credit union.

How does Graham feel after the procedure?
“Since having it done, I definitely feel I can talk about it more to people, to family, to friends, to clients, to colleagues, because you’ve been through it and you realise how easy it is. It’s literally a couple of days out of your life, and then your whole life changes because it’s over and you just move on and let the hair grow again.
I suppose the best response I’m getting from people is no response. Not many people have noticed, but the people who are close to me, family and friends, have noticed a big change with my hair, with the way I’m able to manage it. They also notice a big change within my confidence, which has been absolutely fantastic.”
clients talk about it and they’d come to me and I’d advise them what to do…to be able to talk to them about having the transplant done is brilliant for them
