Earlier, the trend of looking young and beautiful was meant for women only. However, this trend has now found its way into the men’s world as well. Of all the features one wishes to enhance, hair occupies a prominent role. With each falling hair strand, self-confidence takes a beating. And indeed, necessity is the mother of invention, which is why we have come up with ways to deal with the hair loss. In earlier days , people resorted to a technique called hair plug, wherein a punching tool was used to remove rows of round patches of skin tissue from elsewhere and placed on the thinning area. However, hair plugs did not give a natural look. One could easily figure out that they are not natural hair but artificially placed.
With the advancement in medical technology, we said goodbye to using hair plugs and said Hello to hair transplant surgery. Transplant surgery removes the look of unnatural doll-like hair that patients used to see in the 1970s and 1980s due to hair plugs procedure. With hair transplant procedure, patients can expect a hairline which is dense and natural-looking.
For successful hair transplants, the creation of natural hair is one of the most important elements. A hair transplant surgeon is now appraised based on his ability to transplant hair that looks natural and doesn’t give away the fact that it was placed surgically. With technological advances, good hair density is possible. However, for natural hair styling, a surgeon’s artistic sense plays a crucial role.
This article provides information on the properties of a natural-looking hairline and factors that need to be taken into account to achieve a natural-looking hairline.
Who are good candidates for hair transplants?
Are you a man in his twenties who has hair loss? For best results, you may opt for hair transplantation and start treatment with hair loss medications. Men and women of all races can be good candidates for hair transplants. To consider a hair transplant, you need few things:
- Healthy enough hair on your scalp(Donor area) that can be transplanted into areas that need hair.
- Beard and chest hair can also be considered for Donor areas in cases where there is less Donor availability from the scalp. So if you have good body hair it’s a plus point.
- Smaller areas of baldness can be easily covered as you need a lesser donor area to harvest.
During a consultation with Hairsure doctor, you can find out if you satisfy these conditions, then the doctor will give you an in-depth scalp examination. You may also need some blood tests to find out any health issues are present. Usually a Minor Surgical Profile should be sufficient.
If examinations and tests show that you are the right candidate for a hair transplant, then our doctor can tell you what results you can expect. Fuller hair may not be realistic, but fuller hair can be the goal. It is always good to discuss the density as everyone tends to have different ideas about what can be achieved with a HT surgery.
Results depend largely on the surgeon you chose:
Although this success gives the patient a natural-looking hairline result, the outcome is highly dependent on the surgeon chosen. Our doctors at Hairsure have a thorough knowledge of hair loss and have vast experience in performing hair transplants regularly.

How to create a natural-looking hairline:
Most hair transplant patients focus on the number of grafts, hair transplantation methods, and types of anaesthesia. But, the first and determining factor is hairline design. The hairline is the border of our hair. In general, the area where hair can grow is limited. Every person has a unique hairline and is perfectly fit for the head because it’s congenital. But when it comes to hair transplants, hairlines can easily lose perfection because it will be drawn by someone else.
For many people who are in the early stages of hair loss, thinning and diminishing hairline is the first and most obvious sign that there is a problem. The desire to give this young hairline a shine again often motivates people to consider the possibility of a hair transplant.
Hairline design is not about technical matters, but about experienced and artistic eyes that can create geometric harmony. The hair transplants we do at the Hairsure Clinic are very good because our experienced surgeons use their art and skills, along with the latest technology, to create a natural-looking hairline that will stand the test of time. Our doctors develop a hairline that is tailor made to you which will improve your appearance and self-esteem.
To achieve this goal, they use their holistic understanding of what makes a hairline restored by surgery look truly natural, not the result of a transplant. When planning individual and unique hairline recovery, the following factors are taken into account to achieve the natural hairline appearance desired by the patient:
Right Framework: A hairline is the main focus of the hair. It is the hairline which adds to the overall beauty of the hair. You could imagine any individual with fantastic hair and the one thing that stands apart is the hairline. Such is the importance of a hairline. The surgeons at Hairsure performing a hair transplant follow caution in setting the hairline. It shouldn’t either be too short of the place it needs to be positioned or too far off. Either way, such an ill-placement of hairline makes the new hairlines less natural-looking, obtrusive and non-complementary to the face.
The right balance: Your new hair will be with you for years and decades. You want to look natural and age-appropriate. As a surgeon at Hairsure Clinic accounts for factors like hair type, natural hair curvature and placement angle, and the number of follicles to be transplanted. If your transplanted hair is too symmetrical or round, it will look unnatural, especially as you get older.
Plan ahead: The receding hairline is usually part of the baldness pattern, which means other areas of the scalp will become thinner now or most likely in the future. If you want to leave the possibility of addressing these bald spots later, you need to make sure that healthy follicles are available for transplantation. Our surgeon helps you consider collecting donor follicles to restore your hair that will leave a healthy amount for future procedures.
Zigzag hairline designs: If you look carefully, you can see that the hairline has no straight lines. Each hair is in a unique position compared to the others. If the new hairline is a straight line, the result again looks like a doll’s hair. Our experienced hair transplant surgeon knows how to prevent this type. He will use zigzag patterns during hair design. When arranged properly, hair grows naturally, and its density is much higher than straight lines.
Individual patient characteristics: This factor is related to the physiology of the patient. By keeping this in mind our Hair transplant surgeons consider and analyze the age, ethnicity, hair type, and hair loss of the patient. If the patient is young and may experience hair loss after transplantation (note that transplanted hair is permanent, but the rest of the existing hair in the balding area are not). Hair transplant surgeons should consider this and plan accordingly if the patient has hair very thin or very thick, straight or curly. Each hair type requires a different approach to the hairline to achieve the most natural results.
The worst thing about a bad hairline is that a hairstyle won’t fix it. The only way is to get a better hair transplant from an experienced surgeon who will take up your case as something unique. However, this is only possible if you have enough hair follicles in a hair transplant. Also, keep in mind that you only have a certain amount of hair follicles in your donor area that is suitable for hair transplantation.
The factors for natural hairline design, discussed in this article are very important for achieving natural-looking results expected by a patient. The selection and use of Follicular Unit grafts, combined appropriately with the surgeon’s artistic and surgical skills, is very important.
