    Toupees. The combover. Now, a head tattoo? If a UK company has its way, men suffering from hair loss will turn to needles and ink to mask their baldness.

    Birmingham, England-based His Hair Clinic uses what it describes as "a mild form of medical tattooing" to simulate the look of shaved or closely cropped hair.  The company announced via its blog that representatives will travel to San Francisco and Florida this summer to market the technique.   

    The procedure, which His Hair Clinic calls "hair follicle replication," takes three hours to complete and requires an additional follow-up session. Clients shave or cut their hair in order to blend the tattoos with their natural follicles. 

    The company says that the earliest American procedures will take place between July 20 and August 5.
