Do a search on “nape” and you will get some results. There are quite a few results. Truth is they don’t like to touch this area unless you are a certain age. Especially for the advanced norwoods, this area tends to move up at the same time the top part moves down. In an extreme case like a NW7, take a look and see how small the wreath is that remains.
For example, take a look at the back of the father’s head on Everybody loves Raymond (Peter Boyle). His hair is longish in the back and very stiff looking, but you can still see where his nape has risen closer to the top.
