A 33‑year‑old woman presented with an asymptomatic skin‑colored papule with a central, outward woolly tuft, clinically appearing as white hair on the scalp skin. On physical examination, a 1 cm skin‑colored papule with woolly hair tuft arising from the lesion was found on the hairy skin [Figure 1]. No radiological investigation was done. The patient had a 2‑year history of lesion, and the length of the white woolly tuft hair was the same as the normal hair. The patient had no history of systemic diseases and no family history of skin diseases. There was also no history of any trauma. The papular hairy skin lesion was completely excised with woolly rope‑like central hair. On histopathological analysis, dermis was unremarkable and epidermis showed dilated follicle with multiple hair follicles in different phases of maturation [Figure 2]a and b.
