Hairdresser's disease is an occupational acquired interdigital pilonidal sinus (IPS) of especially male barbers. Here, two cases of IPSs are reported. Both cases underwent surgical excision and primary closure. Six months follow-up period did not present any complications or recurrence. Caused by repeated implantation of foreign hair to the interdigital web space, IPS is preventable, but once acquired treated with surgical excision and primary closure or with a skin flap for postoperative comfort.
