I'm 20, and I've got a pretty high hairline. A couple of friends will joke that it's "receding", and sometimes I'm worried about it myself.
But I'm wondering if a high hairline necessarily indicates the first step on the road to baldness? I don't lose particularly large amounts of hair. I'm not under crazy amounts of stress. While nobody in my family seems to be bald, my father and my brother have high hairlines which seem to have been like that for a while.
So I guess my question is...is it possible to have a hairline that becomes high and just stays that way? I've certainly got a higher hairline now than I had 2 or 3 years ago, but does that mean it's on the way to baldness or is it just the way it's going to settle?
Re: Can it be normal just to have a high hairline?
from what i know, the hairline matures. i have a high hairline and i am 22. my dad has one. i have had one since i can remember. i think it also has to do with the shape of you head. to answer your question i don't know if it does or not. my dads hair is a high hairline but is also thinned. it is definitely not completely bald but it is not enough to style. as of right now i can still style my hair as i have always done and not really notice my hairline as a problem. but it is definitely not typical of people my age. i wouldn't worry about it because it just might just all fall out one day and you will realize that you should have enjoyed it while you got it. thats how i feel about mine right now.
