The most important aspect of hair restoration can be debated. With so many important aspects to consider. But for the majority, their main concern is the placement and design of the hairline. For both men and women.
The hairline frames the face. Creates a more youthful appearance. The facial bone structure has to be taken into account As well as understanding the face is not symmetrical. With one side being slightly different from the other. With the hairline having subtle differences. To ensure a natural appearance is created.
A male hairline design resembles the letter “M”. With the apex being the lowest point. At the centre point of the hairline. Then, moving up to the temple point. Also known as the recession. From this point, it then moves back down. To the sides, or lateral. Female hairline design is fundamentally opposite. As a result, the apex being the highest point. The temples then rounding down. Placing a female hairline on a man or vice versa would result in a totally unnatural look.
You can´t better nature
Regardless of whether using surgical or a non-surgical technique. The basic principles are no different. The design must be in proportion to nature. It is possible to be creative with the hairline. Maybe slightly higher or lower than the original. But it must follow certain natural basic laws to look natural.
As tempting as it may be. Especially when younger to create a low flat hairline. A hair transplant is permanent. So a low hairline is not always the best idea. A permanently fixed hairline may not age appropriately. Especially if designed when very young. Especially if hair loss progresses to an advanced stage.
A successful, natural hairline design does not draw any attention. That is the artistic ability that is required. A wrongly positioned or designed hairline will draw attention, and for all the wrong reasons.
