View Full Version : Hairline design? Opinions please

Ok I've been having a think about hairline designs etc and one thing I often see with transplants is the "horse shoe" shape hair line. I understand the reasons for this, one a limited donor supply so a very low hairline may now leave enough hair for later one & the whole "age appropriate" hairline i.e. when you're 70 you might now what a hairline as low as it was when you were 20.

Anyway I've had an idea & wanted people's opinions. Apparently leg hair is very good for hairlines as it's quite fine and looks reasonably natural. Would it be possible to do the traditional "horse shoe" hairline with head hair & then fill in the corners with leg hair?

I've (badly) edited some pictures to show kind of what I mean.

Thanks everyone!

Forgot to add I know BHT can be unpredictable so obviously this would be after a trial to see if BHT worked on that patient.

I also know leg hair can thin over time, maybe once you hit 40? So my idea would be a perfect solution for young people that want a low hairline, but may not want it when they're older?

Any area of BH donor other than the beard and possibly chest is questionable and unreliable at best.

And IMHO, you really do want to do trial sessions first before committing to any larger BH procedures.
