Getting The Correct Hair Line

Hair line design is different for every individual, there is no designer hair line shape and the natural contours of the facial bone structure will determine how the position and design should be made

The angle of the hair line is important, for example it will differ greatly between men and woman, the height of the hair line above the eyebrow, the temporal recession angle, convex or concave and the lowest part of the hair line

For men the central apex of the hair line is generally lower but the corners or temporal area is higher and creates a more square shape, like an “M” shape; this is accentuated as male hair loss starts to increase the angle between the apex and the temporal region

Variants In Male and Female Hair Line Designs

Largely, men have longer and larger faces compared to women, the male bone structure is generally squarer, and sharper corners for example the jaw and neck line; a woman the features are softer, more rounded

The hairline for a man appears further back than a woman, giving the appearance of a larger forehead. The hairline is also more rounded for a female which further reduces the appearance of the forehead

When reconstructing a male or female hair line theses basic principles must be adhered to otherwise the hair line will not complement the bone structure of the individual and look unnatural

The placement does not always have to be aggressive but sometimes a subtle change can make a huge improvement to the overall result; correct orientation of the hair as it moves around the hair line into the recession and then down the sides

Ensuring the hair used blends with the sometimes softer and finer hair in these areas. As well as hair calibre to take into account other factors such as density placed are important as this will change around the hair line

As a rule the hair line should not be placed lower than the original hair line; even if hair loss is not aggressive and results in a mature hair line almost every male will see the hair line recede a little

If a hair line is placed too low at a young age it will look appropriate at the time but may not remain appropriate as the individual ages; although our bone structure remains the same the ageing process will alter our facial image

Many times, if not always the best surgical hair restoration results are achieved not necessarily by creating the look of a full head of hair but because there has been an understanding between doctor and patient what can be achieved and is possibly with the resources available
