Err no. Depends how old this ba is, whether the depilation was genetic or
genetic-assisted or permanent cosmetic and so forth.
If hair is now fashionable again, it may have been implanted or a simple
virus-mediated insert done to restart hair growth - always provided this ba
cares about fashion. If it doesn't care and doesn't have to care the above
may have only been done for his current mission.
