    Jansens hair looks good for a 50 year old. I went for a little more hair than that but I the concept is the same.

    We have a patient who is now 60 that's been coming to Dr. Cole since 1998. He had small hair transplant sessions every few years. In 1998 he was a Norwood 5. Now at 60, he appears to have a full head of hair. He had minor hair loss in the back. Men bound toward the Norwood 6 category can get natural looking results in the front that usually hang in there pretty well into moderate old age. Men do experience thinning of transplanted hair in their 60s + but at that age a little hair is better than none IMO. People who care about how they look when they are young, generally do care about how they look when they get older.

    Hair loss makes you look older all the way up through the NW scale. I think that is really the biggest downside to MPB and why most men care. I can tell you from experience its the case the majority of the time. A NW 0 makes you look unusually young just because most men do bald as they get older, while balding unusually fast at young age makes you look unusually old.
    I think NW 0 looks unusually good its just such a rare sight. How can having too much hair honestly be bad? what are you smoking to think that.

    For me, I hate the thought of losing hair because I like being able to style my hair. I like having hair cuts etc.

    If you are balding significantly, you lose a lot of styling options (as hair is missing). If you are receeding, again styling options become limited, as the hairline frames your face. At least if you have hair, you have the choice to go bald.

    balding sucks, whatever way you look at it.

    Those guys who pay top dollar to get a combover is a bit stupid as well. (Hair transplants)

    I agree. Once you reach NW2 the only decent options you have are what, maybe a caesar, messy bangs??

    Depends on texture + density

    If you have a wavy or loose curl texture, it is easy to style & look NW1 as long as you still have enough density
    However if your hair is very straight or has very tight curls, or if it is too thin, you are in trouble
    NW2 is not that bad in many cases. However NW2a is f*cked....forelock recession is a disaster

    What on earth is a NW0? Does it imply some rarity in nature because this is about the only hair loss forum I've heard that term mentioned. I thought a NW1= juvenile hairline and it progressed thereafter until NW7 or anywhere in between.

    NW0 is made up by forum posters. It is because some people think the sketch of NW1 shows a mature hairline, mild recession etc
    In reality the chart is just a bunch of rough sketches done by some guy before most of us were even born. These drawings should not be taken as gospel

    All that really matters = is your hairline receding or not?
