    Default NW4+s when did you start losing

    There seems to be a correlation between those who are destined to be high norwoods, seem to lose it in their early 20s.

    What age did you become a high norwood, and how did you lose it?

    Cheers.

Then there are those who just lose it very slowly over a long period of time.

    Frankly it seems very random. One thing I have noticed though is that those who only experience a receding hairline tend to lose it much slower. It's the ones that get a receded hairline and thinning that get hit hard and fast. Plus, just losing a hairline is great news in terms of available treatments. Just one HT and you can be a thick, natural looking NW1.
    Yeah tbh I think I am hoping I fall in the bolded category. NW2 at 27.

    What examples do you know of where this is the case?

    Dont think depp counts, he has never been a NW1, like ever.

    NW2 is his natural hairline.

    Yeah well his hairline is pretty lousy in Public Enemies, worse than the real Dillinger, you can see he didn't wear any fake hairs for that one.

    Depp NOW:



    May look like recession in second pic is deeper, just the angle.

    His hairline has barely changed.

    I really doubt he always was NW2. I've never seen a young teen or kid with NW2 hairline.
    I know a few who have NW2 HL

    The "Depp NOW" pic does not look like Depp now. He looks younger there than he does now.

    I'm too lazy to post a recent picture of Johnny Depp, but he does have a good amount of hair. Just saying you posted still pretty young version of Depp for your "Now" picture.

    Forgive me if i'm mistaken and Depp actually does look that young still, but I know he always sports a mustache and long hair now, he also wears hats more frequently now.
