The hair transplant journey can be one of many emotions, from the day you enquire to the day you have surgery and beyond. The mixed feelings can be a rollercoaster, and confusing to deal with. Follow Stifyn Parri's journey from hair loss to hair surgery, his results, and how he felt about the process at HQ.
Trans women are people who were assigned a male gender at birth, but identify more naturally as a female. There are many stages to go through during gender transition from male to female, and one of the most easily achieved stages is redefining the hairline to give a softer and more natural look.
There are various differences between male and female hairlines. This is important to understand when thinking of female feminisation, in order to achieve the most natural look for the trans woman and give them the desired result.
The male hairline tends to flow in an ‘m’ shape, with receded temples. The female hairline tends to be more oval and softer to create a more feminine shape. A hair transplant takes hairs from the back of your head, known as the donor area, and places them in the temporal region to replicate the oval shape of the female hairline.
