How to Create a Natural Hairline

Learn how to create a natural hairline from hair transplant surgeon Craig Ziering, MD in this Howcast video.


Patients who seek hair restoration are most concerned with the hairline. It's extremely important that it looks very natural. The way to create a natural hairline is really up to the surgeon and his artistic ability. It's very important to use very detailed small little incisions with small graphs of one hair at a time. And than you blend that with two and three hairs as you progress further towards the back of the scalp. But when you do the hairline you need to make sure that it frames the face appropriately so the hair graphs are put in at the appropriate angle, direction and orientation as well as framing the face. It's important to take into consideration the fact that different patients have different facial features and different bone structure. For example, in Caucasian patients you're gonna have much more deeper recession in that M pattern; it's much more natural. However, for African Americans they often want it more straight across and there's a sharper edge to the transplant in the hairline zone. So it's important you create the hairline that's appropriate for the ethnic patient that you are dealing with.
