Thanks for chiming in. First, a clarification in case I wasn’t clear about it in my video; using singles in the hairline is not the only precursor to building a natural hairline. You can easily use only singles and still make an unnatural hairline through the use of bad angles/directions, placement and general design. This is assuming that there is a high growth rate overall which is another issue with some clinics but just by knowing a clinic uses only singles for the hairlines they create is not the only thing that makes them good at hairlines. That is like saying fifteen years ago that just because someone is using FUT instead of min-micro grafts that their work is going to look natural, which wasn’t the case by a long shot.
To address your issue however, I’ve spoken with people that think the “serrated” hairline as you put it, others would call it “jagged” or “sawtooth”, is also unnatural so in that case, you’re both right as these are subjective points. In reality some people do naturally have a sawtooth or jagged hairline and others have a more “linear” shape or pattern. It comes down to the individual, and how hairlines are recreated by man should be determined more by hair type and skin type as some hairs look more natural in serrated hairline styles while others look better in linear styles but the use of singles should be a common denominator.
I will go further by explaining (or reiterating since I mentioned it in the video) that the “singles only” point I make is addressing a larger overall issue that has been very disturbing for me over the past few years and of which I’m seeing on the rise. You’ve been around for a while (at least four or five years) and I would classify you as a hair nerd (that’s a good thing) so you understand my point about “singles only” but most people today do not. This is because the focus has been shifted away from naturalness and density to one of “avoid the strip scar” and “look how cheap Turkey is” or similar unimportant distractions. That’s why I’ve been saying that the standards at which many clinics operate in general today is lower than it was ten years ago and the consumers are letting the clinics get away with it due to this shift in priorities.
But back to my point about Dr. Baubac; he understands that to make a hairline natural he must make it a priority to take the extra step of refining the grafts using microscopes.
Thanks again for your input.
