I got a haircut after 8 months of hair transplant. My crown / vertex looked really thin after the cut. It was 2 months ago. Now I am waiting for my hair to grow up again, but confused on how to calculate my days / months about transplant. Should I say I am at 10 months or 2 months? Does hair grow faster after haircut?
All to often I see men who have spent thousands and thousands on a hair transplant only to be suffering from a very unflattering hairstyle. Please notice the first picture. This gentleman had, what appears to be a pretty good hair transplant. Look at his hairstyle, though. This only adds years to his age in my opinion. The way he has his hair parted adds to the recession of hair on that side of his head.
I have added some haircuts that would likely be very good for post-op HT patients. Notice the hair is a bit shorter on the sides. It is long enough to cover a small scar. By having the hair shorter on the sides and longer on the top, it adds a illusion to density on the top. It is also very stylish to have a bit of a "messy" look on the top. It is more easy to cover thin areas if we mess it up a little. Do not go overboard with any hair products that look greasy. A very light pomade, or thickening gel is all we need. Make sure you buy a quality brand like American Crew. I have used cheap, and expensive. Expensive is the way to go! Always get the good stuff.
This is a great hairstyle for the professional looking businessman. He has a very stylish cut that does not look like something his Grandfather would have, but he still looks like he can be taken seriously in a business environment.
guys, dont be afraid to go to a salon for a professional coloring job. When you do it at home, you usually only get one color in your hair and it looks like it has been colored. When a pro does it, they can give you much better mix of colors of highlights. Lighter colored hair will almost always take years off of your age. It will generally blend better with your scalp and your hair will look thicker.
Bottom line guys. You spent thousands to get your hair back. Spend a little more for professional advice and styling with a salon that can help you look your best!!!
Lets see some before and afters of you guys that take the challenge and get it done!!
I've seen everywhere that the grafts are securely anchored at day 10 post op, but when it comes to haircuts, there isn't a solid answer.
I've seen everything from 10 days to three weeks. I'm returning to work on day 10 and desperately need a haircut. I wish they would have just shaved my entire head during the operation! Many thanks.
im around 5 months after my hair transplant to restore my hairline everything was goin fine till i had to get my first haircut since, so i went to the barber i told him i wanted a specific hairstyle but i guess he didnt understand (since the music was pretty loud) and gave me a buzz haircut that means no guard on the clipper so while he was line up my hairline i didnt feel no pain but when he finished cutting my hair i noticed that the area where i had my transplant was red idk if its because the skin is more delicate in that area and it got irritated or he went in too deep with his clipper and scratch off some hair :confused::confused::confused::confused:
This video is just me talking about how I look after my first haircut, and having my stitches removed.
This video refers to my hair loss history.
On a side note, does anybody know if it is possible to edit my original post so that I can just add all my video links to one place? I don't want to overload the threads with all my updates.
