Comparing Male and Female Hairlines

There are differences between female and male hairlines. Let’s explore both and see if scalp micropigmentation can work.

Male Hairline

Certain distinctive characteristics of a male hairline that draw a distinction from a female hairline include a dominant widow’s peak. Male hairlines start with a dominant widow's peak, resulting in an M-shaped middle hairline. This is a characteristic of the male population. With age, the hairline recedes further, especially if the person is suffering from androgenetic alopecia.

When follicles shrink, it results in thin hair. Eventually, this results in hair loss, resulting in a changed shape of the hairline.

Men suffer from hair loss due to stress, tight hairstyles, and medication side effects.

Another distinctive feature that separates male hairline from that of a female is its straightness. While the hairline of a female is more curved or rounded, a male hairline appears more linear. Straight hairline is more visible in the beginning and starts to receding from temples gradually.

Feminine Hairline

As mentioned above, the hairline in females is not straight, unlike men, but a little more rounded with a smoother transition. It appears a little lower on the forehead than that of males, thus the forehead looks shorter. Such rounded hairlines frame the face, giving them a soft appearance. Like their male counterparts, females may experience a widow's peak, though it is a little less obvious than the former.

In females, traction alopecia is the cause of a receding hairline. It is usually the result of tight hairstyles. Hair pulling due to a tight style puts stress on follicles, resulting in hair loss. Hormonal changes can cause thinning hair.

Besides shapes, hairlines in both genders are influenced by position, hair density, and angles of follicles.

What Influences Hair Loss Patterns?

A person’s genes as well as the environment determines their hairline. If hair loss runs in the family, a person is more likely to experience androgenetic alopecia. besides, the role of the environment, including diet and stress, cannot be denied too. In addition, specific medical conditions and medication side effects too play a spoilsport.

Traction alopecia in women might be triggered by hair pulling.
