After filling out the FREE Online Consultation form, please provide your photos showing the following angles:

Front Photo & Hairline

Our office will need  to understand how the existing or new hairline will frame the face. This is necessary and intended for the evaluation procedure.  If you can, use some time to illustrate your hairline by drawing on your scalp to demonstrate to us where about you would be pleased  to have it positioned. This assists us in getting familiar with your hairline expectations.


Top of Your Head

The top view is essential as it helps us conclude the amount of current hair loss and possible future hair loss.  Taking the top view photo  gives us an general view of your hair loss circumstances.



Back of The Head

Please try to  include a picture with your donor hair pulled up either with your hand or with a comb. This helps us to conclude what your donor density is.


Your Right & Left Profile Shots

The side profile photos are very important in determining the needs of our patients. They help us understand the extent of your hair loss.


Photo Guidelines

The free online consultation depends on pics that display the hair-loss as it currently is. It can be attainable to supply an precise evaluation of a person’s hair-loss and complete advice, using the pics by themselves. A high-quality photo that displays the accurate characteristics of the hair is the basis of the virtual consultation.

Use of the digital camera
Please do not use a webcam or anything from a video camera. The effects are for the most part are weak in for viewing.

Do not use the flash accessory!
The flash of the camera allows for a deception of hair density and growth, making hair appear far more dense than it actually is. In the photo below, the picture on the right was taken with flash, and appears far more dense the picture on the left of the same patient.

Use your bathroom as a photo studio!
It tends to work out better if you take your photos in your bathroom. The environment is small, the lighting is usually adequate, and you have a mirror in which to judge your angles.

Light from the front and above
Avoid lighting from behind. Do not allow ambient light to enter the room where you are taking your photographs. If you are in your bathroom, or any room, close nearby blinds and/or curtains. Ambient light will darken the overall look of your hair transplant.

Place the camera on a steady support
Use a tripod if you have one or place the camera on a counter or shelf to steady your shots. You can place your camera in one place for all angles of the shot. Instead of turning the camera for a new angle, turn yourself. Avoid holding the camera.

Learn to use your camera’s timer feature
Almost all cameras come with a timer delay feature of ten seconds. Use this to get the most stable images. You do not want any blur effects to ruin your shot. It will take several practice shots to get proficient at using your camera’s timer feature but it is worth the effort.

Be consistent
For those documenting their post-op hair growth, it is important to use consistent angles and lighting. This helps to truly see the progress. Suggested angles are: 90 degrees left and right, 45 degrees left and right, face forward, face slightly turned downward to show hairline, chin to chest to see overhead view, direct view of the back of your head to show the donor area, back of your head while looking slightly up to show your crown area. Remember, you don’t need to move the camera for these shots. Move yourself.

Use macro zoom feature for close-ups
When taking close up shots of your hairline or any other particular area of interest make sure to turn on your macro feature on your digital camera. This should be used when taking photos from less than 1 1/2 to 2 feet away. If you don’t know how to enable this feature then look in the manual. If you don’t have your manual anymore then you can most likely download a new one from the manufacturer’s web site.

Review your photos
When you are finished taking your photos you need to review them for accuracy. Are the photos clear? Are they consistent with previous photos? Do they give an accurate representation of what your hair really looks like?
