I am 34 and in the music business. Like the email from your model, I am in a position where I wish to look like I’m in my late 20 for a few more years–Its more business then vanity. My hair looks how it should for 34 (I am a type two), never the less, I wish to have the sides of the front filled in a bit (as well as the hariline reconstructed).
Everything I read implies that this is a bad idea, because my hairline will look too low when I am 45. If I brought my hairline back down to where it was 5 years ago, would it look stupid in 15 years?
Clearly, you understand this subject, so I will not repeat much of what I have said in previous blog entries. First, Bill Clinton has the same hairline today that he had when he was 12 years old. His hairline does not look weird to me. It just reflects a small number of Caucasians who keep their juvenile hairlines into adulthood. IF you are not balding and you’re examined throughout each area of your scalp, looking for miniaturization and none is found, then it is not unreasonable to assume that you would be in the 55% of the population that does not bald at all. Putting back the frontal hairline will just make you look like Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, actor Andy Garcia, and many others like them. They looked good with their low hairlines. On the other hand, if you should start to bald, a discussion with your doctor needs to lay out a worst case scenario for you to consider along with the statistical possibility that this might happen.
