Posted by DHI Australia on November 20, 2019

4 Reasons Why People Have An Uneven HairlineA changing hairline is a reality for many men and some women. It can appear as receding hair, evenly or unevenly, or an imbalance of fullness along your hairline. Early stages of hair loss can be worrying for some, particularly if it starts in your 20’s or 30’s. Knowing whether it’s a problem that warrants treatment or not can be confusing.

An uneven hairline is a common concern and there are several reasons why you could be experiencing it. Find out what causes an uneven hairline and how you can restore your hairline, permanently.



Hairline characteristics can be an inherited trait, therefor genetics can be the reason behind an uneven hairline. Your hairline might start further back on one side than the other and can sometimes appear like a receding hairline. To find out if you are experiencing hair loss or not, we recommend you book a consultation with a DHI hair loss expert.

Start With Your Diagnosis


Maturing Hairline

A maturing hairline is different to a receding hairline. As we age, our hairline naturally changes and it may not mean that you are experiencing hair loss. Changes to the hairline normally start in the teenage years, when the hairline moves higher up and the shape changes. Over time, it can become slightly to noticeably uneven. Various hairstyles can help to conceal an uneven hairline, or a hairline redesign can give a new, restored hairline.


Traction Alopecia

Traction alopecia is hair loss that occurs due to forceful pulling of the hair. Tight hairstyles such as cornrows, or tight braids, buns or ponytails can lead to traction alopecia. Hair loss can be permanent if this type of hairstyling is ongoing. If you think you may have traction alopecia, a looser hairstyle is recommended, or consult a hair loss expert.


Male Pattern Baldness

By far the most common reason for hair loss is male pattern baldness and this condition causes the hairline to thin and recede. Hormones cause the hair growth cycle to shorten, hair miniaturises and then sheds. Over time, hair is lost faster than it can grow, resulting in a receding hairline and baldness. A hair restoration procedure such as DHI microsurgery hair transplant can be considered for this type of hair loss.


How To Create Your Ideal Hairline

DHI hairline redesign is the most refined hairline restoration procedure. The DHI technique is referred to as microsurgery and we are the only clinic in Australia to guarantee natural results. The procedure uses 100% your own hair. By moving hairs from the back and sides of the scalp, our doctors can restore and redesign your hairline to blend seamlessly with the rest of your hair. Our doctors have complete control over the depth, angle and direction of every hair that is implanted. Results are permanent and will continue to grow for life.
