4 Reasons Why People Have An Uneven Hairline

A 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 receding hairline, permanently. If you suffer from hair loss, answer these 3 questions to discover the best treatment option for you.

4 Reasons Why People Have An Uneven Hairline


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 hair growth specialist.

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 micro-transplant hair transplant can be considered for this type of hair loss.
