I know, there shouldn’t be a difference but in reality the difference is night and day. The fue pics never seem to measure up to strip pics. I can’t explain why.

» Exactly. How could they understand if they have never encountered it?
» Ignorance is bliss, as they say. The hairline and the temple points make

» automatically. It is only when we begin to analyze the art of nature that
» we discover the impact of these details.
» Well, now you’ve got me curious. You’re just going to have to grow your
» hair out longer with your new hairline and post pictures of that look as
» well. :slight_smile: Congrats to you again!

Will do! :smiley:
Take care.
