A saw a very beautiful woman today in consultation. She wanted me to lower her hairline. She noticed that the hairline she had, appeared on the part of her skull that was not perpendicular to the ground just and the hairline was about 2cm above the point where the rounding of the skull started. This made her sensitive to what looked like a longer than normal forehead.
I did see what she saw. Based on today’s examination, her hairline was clearly in the same place as it was when she was 10 years old. I judged this from it location at the highest crease in the furrowed brow and the complete concave shape of the hairline. Also the distance from the tip of the chin to the tip of the nose is the same distance as the middle part of a line drawn from the pupils of her eyes to the lowest hairline point in the midline. This shows balance and symmetry.
We discussed the two methods of lowering the hairline (1) and surgical lowering procedure and (2) a hair transplant. After considerable discussion, I think that we both came to the decision not to do it, as it might impact her work and her modeling schedule from a visibility point of view. With the hairline on the upper crease, moving it down with a hair transplant to the 3/8ths inch she wanted, would show hairs that moved when her brow wrinkled or her eyebrows were lifted in any emotion she might express. This ‘moving’ hair would occur if the hair was placed below the furrowed brow of her normal existing juvenile hairline.
