Nothing worse than looking 'good' from the front, then as soon as you turn around 'surprise surprise' a big bald crown.
Talk about turning off the cute girl you were talking to.
Fair enough, I agree a significantly balding or bald crown is quite bad cosmetically, especially for younger guys. But if I had to choose between using my precious donor to fill the crown (which eats up a lot of grafts even without too much density) or to frame the face, I'll go with option 2 every time.
I say this because there are more and better non-surgical options for the crown than in the temples and hairline. It responds better to meds, you can get away easier with using concealers there, and in a worse case scenario you can even wear a partial system (detectability is less of a concern if your hairline and temples are real-- at least you won't have mesh poking out the front like Travolta)
