Mike Blaylock’s San Francisco startup, Hairogenics Inc., is offering to preserve strands of your hair until science finds a better cure for baldness. He reasons that if sheep already can be cloned, it’s only a matter of time before some biotechnology company finds a way to duplicate real hair.
When that day comes, Blaylock says bald people will be glad they paid Hairogenics to stash their hair in a climate-controlled vault located 14 feet below a Portland, Ore. hair salon. The cost: $49.95 for the initial hair collection kit and a $10 annual storage fee after that. More hair.
