Below is a question I asked a while back. I am bringing it back up for newbie ghost readers and newbie posters.
Hairlines are paramount to rounding out a perfect transplant. Natural Hairline designs from the past as we all have seen were horrific at best… before the God Fathers of hairlines came around. Dr. Ron Shapiro first described a transition zone within the hairline. Sort of like walking into the woods from a grassy plain. You first see small shrubs, then small trees, then finally full large trees. The same principle was applied by Dr. Shapiro… being that naturally within a hairline do you see first small one haired grafts, then two haired grafts, and then finally large full grafts of 3or more hairs. Dr. Rose was also considered to be a God father as his refinements in hairlines have be-famed him today. Finally the design disseminated to other private doctors and eventually even made it into the large hair mills. So a standard natural theory of hairlines was confirmed and is practiced today.
A good hairline design will have:
A. No angled hairs.
B Angles between 30-45 degrees
C angles following the donor haired angles because that is how natural they are.
D. A pluggy hairline is most naturally angled from tuftyness.
I think it is good to discuss hairline importance. I will go ahead and say that (B) is probably the best design for most naturally looking hairlines. (A) is what folks have done in the past. © is what it would look like in the donor are which is seriously not a good angle for the hairline. (D) is an example of what a pluggy hairline would be… very unnatural.
