What is a normal hairline for a man?

10 June 2021
2-minute read

A receding hairline is something that the majority of men will have to deal with at some point in their lives. Gradually, hair will start to thin and the areas around our temples will begin to show. However, the thinning process can be deceptively slow. Figuring out whether your hairline is moving or not is key to spotting hair loss early.

What is a normal hairline?

A normal hairline is different for every man. For some, the widow's peak or high hairline has always been there. A ‘mature’ hairline is often what many people think of as a ‘normal hairline’. This is when the hairline is set towards the upper middle of your forehead, forming into a mild ‘M’ shape. At the end of the day, from the cowlicks to the curls, you know the nooks and crannies of your hairline better than anybody else.

How can I tell if my hairline is receding?

  • Excessive shedding

Excessive shedding is a clear and obvious sign that your hairline is receding. However, you shouldn’t panic straight away. The average person sheds around 60-100 hairs every day and there can be other reasons for short periods of hair loss, such as stress or anxiety. If you start to see obvious, sustained hair loss in the shower, on your pillow or in your hair brush, it might be time to keep an eye on your hairline. Spotting hair loss early makes treating it much easier.

  • Take monthly pictures

If you’re starting to notice those early signs, there are a few ways to make sure your hairline is receding. As hair loss can be a slow process, taking occasional pictures will give you some solid perspective. Take clear pictures of your hairline in the bathroom mirror from different angles once every few months and have a comparative review. If your hairline is receding, you will clearly be able to see the changes.

  • Keep an eye on thinning areas

A lot of men begin developing a widow’s peak when their hairline starts to recede. Rather than hair falling evenly from around the head, the temples of your hairline will start thinning first. This results in a distinctive horseshoe thinning pattern. Over a period of weeks during your grooming sessions, we suggest keeping an eye on these areas. If you’re noticing some thinning, your hairline may be receding.
