View Full Version : Which Norwood Classification am I?

Little bit of background
I've recently turned 23 and have very thick hair in general and don't seem to be thinning on the crown. I used to wear my hair forward and so have no real pictures of my juvenile hairline.

Father: NW7 since before he was 30 (so it looks like I won't be following his exact pattern / timeline?

Mother's side: Maternal Grandfather and 2 out of 3 of my uncles have great hair. The third uncle is bald however.

I visited a hair clinic about 3 months ago and the doctor told me quickly I didn't need finasteride. However, she did this without examining my hairline, which wasn't really exposed

The pic shows the right and side of my temple, which is far worse than the left. Basically, I'm wondering if its a 2, 2.5 or 3 and whether or not it definitely looks to you guys like something more than a "mature hairline"


Thanks guys!

Hi. Thanks for posting the question. You do have a mature hairline and seem to be a class 2A. In the next few years, you can expect more hair loss and become a class III. What are any other concerns that you may have?
