Receding Hairline – Prevent and Regrow a Receding Hairline

Receding Hairline

(*Results may vary and are not guaranteed)

Many say that it’s not possible to regrow a receding hairline. We have compiled a number of hair growth comparison photos and Success Stories to show you some examples of hair loss sufferers who have proven that theory wrong.

comment male pattern hair lossHugo’s Comments: After 3 months of treatment I can’t believe the results.  Thank you so much Edyta and The Belgravia Centre. I’m so happy.”

Hugo’s hair loss is caused by a genetic condition called Male Pattern Baldness. This form of hair loss affects each person differently – some will begin to see signs of thinning at an early age while others will be affected later on in life. Some will become completely bald without treatment and some will experience a much slower progression resulting in less severe thinning. Genetic hair loss also takes different shapes – some men will lose their hair predominantly at the temples (hairline) whereas others experience hair loss from the crown, and for some the hair will diffusely thin all over the top of the scalp.

Duncan is another client that has seen vast amounts of regrowth at his temples and crown*.  “I always had a nasty feeling that my hair loss would catch up with me after seeing it affect so many members of my family. I decided I didn’t want to go down the same path as them and do nothing. I couldn’t be happier with the results.  Everyone who is still unsure should go for it. The quicker you start, the quicker you can get the constant burden off your mind! Many thanks.” You can see Duncan’s ‘Success Story’ page here.

Duncan and Hugo’s comments were written in one of Belgravia’s comments books, which are kept in receptions of our clinics. There are many more reports and photos just like these in our Hair Growth Gallery, which is the largest of its kind in the world.

The Belgravia Centre is an organisation specialising in hair growth and hair loss prevention with two clinics and in-house pharmacies in Central London, UK. If you are worried about hair loss you can arrange a free consultation with a hair loss expert or complete our Online Consultation Form from anywhere in the world.  View more receding hairline photos below and click on them for the full Success Story.

Hi, I am only 16 but have already noticed my hairline receding into a distinguishable widows peak and notice my hair falling out daily. I live in London, so would I be too young to come for a consultation at your clinic? Also, does any non oral medication exist that can stop a receding hairline? Thanks

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Max, at 16 years of age you are absolutely eligible to come in for a free consultation with one of our hair loss specialists. The oral medication for male pattern baldness, finasteride 1mg, is only actually permitted for medically-suitable men aged 18 and over. However, we offer a range of topical high strength minoxidil solutions and hair growth boosters which are suitable from 16 years of age. Your hair loss treatment advisor will be able to provide you with personal recommendations and talk you through the relevant products once they have diagnosed you at your consultation. If you would like to book an appointment at either of our City of London or Central London hair loss clinics, you can call us on 020 7730 6666 or email us via the Contact Us page.

I have started minoxidil 8 months ago, i have had good results after the 8 month mark. suddenly after a break of 15 days, i have been experiencing thinning of hair and shedding for 2 months. should i continue with the drug? is it that hair has gone to telogen phase?

9th January, 2018 at 10:06 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Ashwill, minoxidil requires continuous use to be effective, when you stop, it stops working and hair fall will follow. Whether you continue with the treatment is up to you and, as you are not a Belgravia client, this is something we would advise you to discuss with your treatment provider.

Hi looking for information on treatment on female slightly receded hairline, Many Thanks, Maria

5th February, 2018 at 12:30 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Maria, first you would need to have your hair loss condition diagnosed as there are a number of potential causes of a receding hairline in women, including female pattern baldness, traction alopecia, frontal fibrosing alopecia and more. If you are able to pop in to one of our Central London or City of London hair loss clinics then one of our specialists can assess you in person. If not, please complete our online consultation form which allows you to upload photos, and one of our specialists will contact you to discuss your diagnosis and send you personalised treatment recommendations.

I just wanted advice on a receding hairline, I’m only 19 and it’s getting really noticeable and am becoming a little insecure with it.

28th February, 2018 at 4:40 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Harry, we're sorry to hear you're feeling insecure about your hairline. As you are 19 there are two most likely scenarios - though we would need to do a proper consultation with you in order to give you an exact diagnosis. The first is that changes in your hairline could represent the onset of premature Male Pattern Hair Loss. This can happen to any man with the relevant genetic predisposition any time following puberty and often takes years to fully develop. A receding hairline is a key symptom but at 19, if this is the case, you have caught it early and have a wealth of treatment options open to you, as discussed above. The other possible reason for changes to your hairline relate to the way the body matures and changes shape during puberty. A man's face can change as the jaw becomes broader etc and, as a result, the hairline matures, often becoming more rounded at the edges (temple areas), though these changes may be more prominent in some than in others. You can find out more on our maturing hairlinehttps://www.belgraviacentre.com/blog/what-is-a-maturing-hairline-is-it-a-sign-of-male-pattern-baldness/ page but if you are concerned and would like some personalised expert advice, please do arrange a free consultation either at one of our City of London or Central London hair loss clinics, or via the online consultation facility on our website.

I’m 17 and have a family history of baldness and was wondering if there is a possibility of having a joint consultation with a friend in the same situation, both seeing signs of receding already

1st March, 2018 at 3:24 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi George, of course! Although it's probably better to have individual consultations although you are, of course, welcome to each sit in on each others' appointments. Our consultations are free, whether you come to one of our City of London or Central London hair loss clinics, or whether you opt for an online consultation via our website.

5th March, 2018 at 7:27 am


hello,i'm 20, i got a frontal hairline problem( receding) and i lost hair a bit on both sides of my scalp. What would you recommend me please ?

6th March, 2018 at 2:06 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Zues, if your receding hairline is caused by male pattern baldness then - at 20 years of age - the information above is applicable to you, regarding the use of a hair regimen based around topical applications of high strength minoxidil. You would simply need to have an assessment with a specialist first in order to confirm your medical suitability and the most appropriate hair loss treatments based upon your level of shedding.

25th March, 2018 at 1:00 pm


Hi there, I’m a barber so I understand the ins and outs of hair loss. I’m 21 and mine has receded from the front over the last few years seeing pictures with thicker fuller hairline. I would like more information on medically restoring hair, and what path to go down whether it be surgically or medically treated. From what I know it shouldn’t be surgically as it’s only at the front but like most men you feel slight insecurity about personal hair loss. Hope to hear back soon, many thanks

12th April, 2018 at 11:13 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Henry, the information above regarding treating a receding hairline is certainly relevant here - a hair transplant is generally not recommended for men under 30. If you would like personalised recommendations and advice based on your specific level and pattern of shedding, please do contact us to book a free consultation or - if it's easier - fill out our Online Consultation form which allows you to upload images.

18th April, 2018 at 6:09 pm


Hi, I have experienced a receding hairline for about 2 years now. I have the signs of MPB and was wondering, what the average treatment costs are per year? Also, would you mind clarifying what percentage of treatment would actually be using unnatural applications (i.e. Finasteride, Minoxidil etc)? I appreciate your assistance and look forward to hearing from you.

20th April, 2018 at 4:12 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi, Charles. The information above is pertinent to treating a receding hairline and you can find out more about our Male Pattern Hair Loss Treatments on their dedicated webpage. There are only two medications clinically-proven and licensed by the MHRA plus FDA approved to treat this condition and these are both drugs. There are currently no proven natural hair loss cures or treatments, only natural elements - such as vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts - which can help to improve the hair's condition, not treat medical hair loss. Typically bespoke Belgravia treatment courses start from £600 per year but this depends upon the options you choose from those recommended based on your level and pattern of shedding, as well as your medical profile. We hope this helps but if you would like more personalised details, please contact us to arrange a consultation at one of our London hair loss clinics, or complete our online consultation form which allows you to upload photos.

Why is there no black models on your website. This is also a common issue in the African Carribeen community and could generate more customers for you

26th August, 2018 at 12:55 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Dennis, none of the people pictured in our Success Stories are models, they are clients who have given us their permission to show their photoscans. You will find many, many examples of black men and women in our Success Stories gallery and you can search specifically by hair type and condition, as well as by men and women. We hope this is helpful.

Hi, recently I stopped washing my hair as a couple of friends recommended it to me that they haven’t washed theirs in years and all was fine and they didn’t had any negative side effects and only positive (no more buying shampoo, hair looks better, no more chemicals,…). After I started doing this (4 weeks already), I noticed like they said my hair was fuller and stronger, which is great. However, now if I comb my hair after showering I notice more hairs in my comb than there used to be. I’m just wondering is it that I’m losing more hair due to not washing with shampoo, or is this just the hair that I used to lose during shampooing and now only comes off during combing? Many thanks if you could help with advice.

Hardip Singh

I have slight hair loss just above my side burns and a slight reseeding hairline.

29th August, 2018 at 4:36 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Hardip, this sounds like a classic receding hairline so the advice above applies. You can also find out more on our Hair Loss Treatments page.

Hi, I can't use minoxidil or finasteride due to side effects. Are there any other options?

17th September, 2018 at 3:40 am

Morgan Thomson

Hi I'm here to ask if you know any other places in the UK that I could go to which would save me having to go to London and where you are based if not I don't mind the journey. I'am 18 years of age from Glasgow and am noticing bit of my hair getting thinner and would like for your help and advice.

17th September, 2018 at 12:13 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Morgan - no problem at all, you don't need to visit us in London if it's inconvenient. All you need to do is complete our online consultation form which allows you to upload photos towards the end. Once we have received your completed form, a hair loss specialist will contact you with a diagnosis and personalised treatment course recommendations.

18th September, 2018 at 3:05 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Jake, it depends on the type of hair loss you are experiencing but if you have Male Pattern Baldness, those are the only two clinically-proven treatments currently available. You may want to try an LLLT device like the LaserBand but we would recommend having a consultation first to ensure this is suitable and also to see whether there is a minoxidil formulation that may work for you as there are a number of options.

I am a 26 year old female - diagnosed with PCOS so I already know the causes of my receding hairline and rapidly thinning hair... What would my treatment options be and would I need to travel to London?

10th October, 2018 at 10:49 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi AS, firstly, it is wise to get a confirmed diagnosis as shedding related to PCOS can cause Telogen Effluvium or Chronic Diffuse Thinning, but it can also trigger genetic hair loss where there is an underlying inherited predisposition. Also, it is possible two of these conditions simultaneously. Treatment would be tailored to your specific condition(s), pattern and level of shedding as well as medical profile. It would be minoxidil-based with additional hair growth supporting products, and there is no need for you to travel to our London hair loss clinics. You can simply complete the online consultation form here on our website, which allows you to upload photos, in order to receive a diagnosis and personalised treatment recommendations. We hope this is helpful.
