[pics] Considering getting a frontal piece...

Hello -

I am relatively young (18) and have a significant amount of front recession for my age.

As much as I'd hate to start wearing hair so early, I am considering it as a pre-emptive action to keep my options open, rather than continue going bald until it becomes an unwanted focal point of my appearance.

Here is a photo of my actual hairline:



And here is a photoshopped picture of what I would like to achieve, in terms of the hairline level and density. Basically, keep it low-density but bring the hairline down a bit.



The most ideal scenario would be a small frontal piece that I could actually put in front of my real hair without shaving much or at all. But I realize this may not be possible and I may need to shave a couple inches back.

I'm open to your input and suggestions!

Thanks
Jon S.

you know what?

just try it. the cost for one piece + supplies is definitely affordable and since unlike guys who want to transition into wearing full systems you wont have to shave anything off. in other words zero risk for you involved. only cost.

so try it!

Hi all,

I just wanted to update you on my piece.

I ordered a stock lace/skin combo piece from Eric at Northwest Lace a week ago and it is amazing. I cut it into a partial and I cannot speak highly enough of how well these pieces are, especially for the money.

Here's a couple new pics with the piece:

The piece now only about 3" deep.

Definitely liking it so far. Going to try for a few months and so long as it doesn't seem to be consuming my life I'll wear it permanently :)

You did not shave your frontal hair to do that right?

Had to shave about 3" back. I only slightly wanted to lower my hairline and ended up needing to shave in order to provide proper support for the HP.

it would be nice if you could upload a close-up pic, so we could see the knotting.

Does it match your own hair color in every lighting?
It looks great.

It does match PERFECTLY and that was largely coincidence. I sent a photo of my hair color to the supplier prior to ordering and took his recommendation, and it matches 100% in every light. Very lucky for that to be the case.

It looks like the factory did a good job bleaching the front knots.

Anyway please keep us updated about the durability, changes in hair color and texture...
