Curious to find out how far along you are in your hair loss? Dr. Ryan Welter of New England Center for Hair Restoration has developed a male hair-loss classification chart to give men with hair loss an exact indicator of where they are in their balding. The chart is the first of its kind since Dr. O’tar Norwood’s hair loss classification chart in 1975.

The chart, seen at the bottom of hair loss information page, is divided into 17 stages of hair loss, based on the length of receding hair line, hair thinning and balding on the vertex, and more.


The Different Stages of Hair Loss

When it comes to hair loss, it’s important to know that you aren’t alone. Hair loss is an extremely common problem, affecting roughly half of men before the age of 50. Hence, there are millions of men dealing with the same mental struggles you may be going through. Many of those men are at your exact stage of hair loss. Dr. Welter’s new chart allows you to determine your exact stage of hair loss through exact statistics and example photos.
