Im not sure my Norwood level but hopefully these pics will help even though they came out facing the wrong way :(

also i am booked w/ Greg in NY and then exactly a week later w/ Matt who from reading many of comments about him i'm sure i'm in good hands.

just any insight into Greg would make me feel a little better about moving fwd!!!

thanks in advance

also just FYI i am of east African decent but have been living in the states since a child

i decided to show my face since i've heard quite a bit of complains that we do not have many "black" examples to go off of.  just want to do my part and show my appreciation for the many threads/diarys that i've scoured through

Think fodandahalf has just about nailed it for you already.


While trying to figure out what hairline I should have myself, I looked into facial proportions, and it seems the general rule for the lowest hairline, is if you divide your face into equal thirds, so that the lower third is the bottom of your chin to the bottom of your nose, and the middle third is the bottom of your nose, to the bridge of your nose where your eyebrows are, then your hairline should be from the bridge of your nose, to wherever the top of the 'third' happens to be.

If you want to go a bit higher than that, you can draw the hairline anywhere between the top third mark + 1cm.  Just depends on how youthful a hairline you want.  Right at the top third line gives you a 20something hairline, heading to the top third line + 1cm, gives you something closer to a mid-thirty something, I think.

Just got my quote via email below:

I have spoken with our Principal Practitioner who has advised that it would cost $4000 plus tax for 3 sessions at our LA or NYC Clinic.

 

Thank you for your interest in our specialist MHT scalp pigmentation, if we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Best regards,

HIS Hair Team USA


i was hoping it would only take 2 sessions but looks like im the same boat as most so its a minimum 3 for $4k

so im guessing im like a Norwood 5/6???

I think your hairline could technically be called a NW3, but it's so thin that it almost does not count. For all intents and purposes you're about a NW5. BUT NOT FOR LONG! 
:D

LMAO ya what i have on top is just there so it can catch the goop that i put on it to look fuller...can't wait to be done w/ that...i think i'm going to try the bald down to bone thing for a couple weeks just so i know what i look like "bald" b4 the MHT...thats only if i can work up the courage to do so tho
:)
ha

So Norwood5 it is!!

Yeah your norwood level is based on how far your thinning goes back. You could technically be a norwood 6 and look like you have a full head of hair if you've just started thinning; HIS have to plan for future hair loss though to prevent the need for future touch ups.

@fodandahalf so lets say HIS considers me a Norwood5.  Im wondering how far into the existing hair they will go in, in the blend.  Meaning will they go as far in to accomodate me at Norwood6 or even Norwood7 potenially.

i'm sure this is something a Practioner will address when i have a chance to speak to one via Skype maybe.

I think Fodandahalf's mock-up works well.

The only advice I would give, is that the darker your skin, the more defined a style you can get away with, so many of our darker skinned clients tend to go for a stylish look with sharp angles. Thats great at the moment, but consider how you want to look as you get older. Of course you could always modify your treatment at a later date.

yes @Damein Jay's results look awesome. suits him very well...he couldn't stop cheesing in the video.   i would love a similar treatment because i want my corners and side profile etched down the same way into my beard/temples.

is that considered a full head treatment or are they just etching the corners down to the temple only and not like say behind the ears and down to the neck?

Biz - 


Just from looking at your current pics, they're going to have to do a lot of work on your sides and the back of your head beneath that patch below your crown. They will definitely blend down into the hair to cover you for future loss. 

The price/session quote seems spot on since you're going to need more than just some work on a hairline.

That being said, you're going to look awesome with this. It's going to fit you perfectly and you won't have to put any garbage in your hair to make it look fuller ever again. Just get used to shaving. Your existing hair looks thick and I'm guessing it grows pretty quick. You should get a Remington R91 off of Amazon since that's going to be your best friend, lol. I have 3. 

Good luck! I can't wait to see your results.

Thanks for the encouraging post.

my remaining hair looks thick only bc i'm badly in need of a haircut and it usually grows pretty slow.  The current growth you see took about 6 weeks.  i usually keep a bald fade so as to eliminate the crown loss and to look a bit less balding.  and ya cant wait until i wont have to use my girl's eyeliner to fill inbetween the lines anymore
:)

i actually showed her the above pics without the eyeliner gunk and she was like

"ya i feel your pain now"...she didn't understand why i've been obsessed with this HIS website and always asking her opinion.  now she gets it and is a bit more supportive
