Hair Line Changes In Density And Angles

Changing Angles and Hair Line Density

Changing Angles and Hair Line Density

The hair line is considered to give the largest impact when restoring a head of hair; the hair line frames the face and generally the first aspect that people see; drawing the eye back to the centre of the face, the eye rather than the forehead

When creating a new hair line aspects such as bone structure and hair characteristics play an important role; the natural angle and orientation of the hair and the required density to create a natural result

The hair line is progressive from one side along the frontal to the other side beyond the temporal recession; there will be slight irregularities from side to side as the face is not symmetrical

As the hair lines moves round the angles and density placed needs to change to create a natural “smooth” hair line that does not draw attention; not a thick wall of hair that is too symmetrical

There is no such thing as a designer hair line as each individual will be different and must be taken into account when designing and placing the grafts; it is advised to not try and create a hair line pattern that you did not have before

As the hair line requires a large number of grafts in a relatively small area the distribution is vital to maximise the coverage and density achieved with as low number of grafts as possible; allowing for greater distribution of hair further back

The frontal aspect of the hair line will require the highest density placed, dependent on hair characteristics this will vary, and curlier hair can reduce the density required due to the added fullness each hair provides

As the hair line reaches the temporal recession point the density needs to be reduced slightly as well as the angle of the hair exiting the scalp as the bone structure moves down the side of the face

As the hair moves further down to the side-burn the angles have to change further, more acute to the skin to allow the grafted hair to be blended with the original side-burn

The more customised the blade is to make the micro incisions for the graft to be placed into will allow for greater precision in placement, angle, depth control, density required and orientation

The best hair line is the one that fits your facial features the best, not necessarily the thickest or lowest but the most natural that does not draw attention as it looks perfectly natural. Because of this hair line placement is often a compromise between the candidate and doctor; and a great deal of medical proficiency and artistic ability is required
