Can I just shoot the pathologist first?

I assume that you are askig about embedding?
Can't you treat the hair bulbs as whole specimens, attach them to a slide
(agar perhaps) and then stain the entire hair bulb for fungus?
Try this first and then shoot the pathologist.

Howdy Histoland,
    I swear one day I'm gonna shoot me a pathologist. We are diving into the
realm of hair pulls by dermatologists to look for fungus. Any ideas on how
to handle these itsy bitsy specimens? Embedding tips? We were successful on
the first specimen, but haven't even come close since then. I'm pulling my
hair out.
    We are supposed to be a nice little lab that does routine histology.
Don't the "reference" part fool ya. Ummmmmm, maybe some one should have told
this pathologist that.
    As always, thanks in advance for your help and the routine disclaimer
