Frontal Forelock Patients

In the mid-1990’s I first started researching and writing about the ‘frontal forelock concept”, and have authored over 12 journal articles and 3 textbook chapters on the subject, in addition to 20-plus lectures all over the world.

I currently believe there are two design patterns that work best for almost every one who is a candidate for this approach. They are the “oval forelock” pattern and the “shield forelock” pattern. They are shown below. The oval pattern is used as the more conservative of the two, when the donor supply is really small in comparison to the needs of the recipient area. A 49 year old male patient who had two sessions with an oval forelock pattern are shown above from two views. The side view shows how the forelock creates a “mirror image” with the fringe hair, giving a very natural appearance.
Individual results may vary.
