A kippah cure for baldness

By Simon Rocker, May 12, 2011

When your hair is rapidly disappearing and your head begins to resemble a desert, you confront an obvious problem: how do you clip on your kippah?

Well, Brooklyn artist Mark Svartz has found the answer; the hairmulka. A yarmulke attached to fronds of fake hair, it will happily sit atop the most denuded scalp.

Svartz apparently designed the device for a balding brother-in-law but the idea caught on and now it is available in four colours.

It can only be a matter of time before a Charedi version comes out complete with ersatz peyot.
