3D printed hair follicles

Will we be 3D printing custom hair solutions in the near future?  The most likely answer is yes!
The printing process involves bouncing a pulsing laser off a mirror and through a lens. When it hits a ribbon containing the bio ink a droplet of the matter falls into place. About ten thousand micro-droplets are created every second. The resulting organic tissue would then need time to mature before these hair follicles are ready to grow.
