I am sure all hair colors are suitable for hair transplantation but would you say darker hair would get a potentially better result? This raises another question: The lighter the skin color the more noticeable the recipient area would be right after the procedure and a couple days after than for a person who has darker skin?
Hair color does have a significant impact on hair restoration outcomes. It is the amount of contrast between the skin color or complexion and the hair color that is important. That is, on a balding scalp, dark hair with pale complexion will appear thinner, while dark hair with a dark complexion will camouflage better hence appear thicker.
