I know some of our members from the UK follow football. Have you guys noticed Gonzalo Higuain is headed to Norwood 7. He's now in his 30's, but when he went to Real Madrid in his early 20's there was no way to know he'd progress this far.

I think his case is especially important to present to young guys who want to be aggressive with their hair transplants. There's really no way to know in your early 20's. His pattern looks like it may be worse than Rooney's who looked way balder in his early 20's too.

Looks like his hair loss has accelerated recently. Maybe he'll end up visiting Ronaldo's HT clinic when it starts up 😉

Did not realise that until I saw the picture. Hairloss can progress very quickly unfortunately.

Most wouldn't even know his pattern, because he still has a lot of hair left. But the writing is on the wall unfortunately.

Gonzalo still had his hair when he went to Napoli in 2013 (aged 25 and a half). Signs were there though:

When he arrived at Juve in 2016 (aged 28 and a half) he was a NW6 pattern but with some brave hairs still keeping up a fight:

It should have taken a toll on his confidence in the shallow world of football where appearance means a lot. But he did deliver like crazy last season at Napoli and first season at Juve. He could always take comfort in his gazillion dollars I guess.

To be honest he should just do like his brother who is three years older but balded earlier than he did:

Think he would look better with a trim up top and a beard.

Another famous footballer who suffers from hairloss is Patrice Evra. He just went out on Instagram and begged Hasson and Wong to help him:

Surely he already had SMP though? What do you think?

He’s doing good now off the bench, but his progression is crazy. That’s why I always tell guys wait till late 20’s. If it’s gonna be bad, that’s when you’ll see the signs. Impossible to know in your early 20’s.

You sound like me, take a look at my hair transplant journey in my signature. You need to be realistic first of all and realize that you may never get the hair you want unless you do things to make it look better i.e hairstyle, concealer etc. If you're okay with this than it's time to start researching surgeons slowly.

This is my head 1 week after shaving at 0 guarda, is this thinning pattern a Norwood 7 pattern or Norwood 6 pattern? How does my donor area looks like?  @Melvin-Moderator seems like you have less crown loss, too bad I can't tolerate finasteride or other Antiandrogens

It's hard to say at this angle, and the lighting could be deceiving. Can you post a regular picture of the back of your head without the tilt in room lighting? Based on this picture I would say you're in between a 6 and 7. The lateral humps do appear to be recede downward. But again this may be the picture you posted.
