Genetics is one of the leading causes of hair loss in men. One study found that 79% of male pattern baldness is related to inherited genes—many of which dictate sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a testosterone-produced hormone.
DHT sensitivity leads to weakened hair follicles, causing strands to become shorter and thinner. This will trigger thinning around the crown and men will see more of a pronounced M-shaped hairline developing, as well as a lighter pigment. You won’t lose the hair around the back and sides of your head, though.
This sensitivity to DHT and the beginning of hair thinning can start as soon as you hit puberty. It has been found that 20% of men experience substantial thinning by the age of 20, and this percentage will increase with age. Of course, there are other causes of hair loss and thinning for both sexes, but for men, genetics do play a critical role.
If you’re getting out of the shower and worrying about hair thinning daily. Check out our recommended hairstyles, treatments and solutions for men with thin hair.
Even though men often experience hair loss at a far younger age, female pattern baldness due to genetics can occur as women become older. Hair thinning can begin as puberty ends, but this is unlikely.
As is the case for men, genes coming from either parent can result in DHT sensitivity, but for women, estrogen in the body will effectively counter this until menopause, when estrogen levels drop. At this point, sensitivity to DHT becomes more apparent. Unlike men, hair thinning will not show on the hairline or crown, but within hair parting.

We care deeply about the health and safety of our customers, employees, and stylists. That is why we want to share the steps we are taking at our salon location.
We are closely monitoring the current situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and are committed to taking appropriate steps to navigate this challenging time.
When you visit our salons, we strive to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Getting your hair cut, colored, or styled should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience for you and your stylist.
Please know that cleanliness and sanitization have always been a big part of running a great hair salon, and we already follow strict guidelines from local health departments. However, due to the current situation, we are increasing and adding to our current supply of cleaning and sanitizing materials to ensure our stylists can clean and disinfect the salon even more thoroughly throughout the course of the day.
As with much of the advice you have seen from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we recommend everyone be conscious of this potential health risk and follow official preventative recommendations. We believe the CDC website is the best destination for that advice.)
In accordance with the CDC’s protocol, we have asked all employees displaying symptoms to avoid coming to work for a period of 14 days. This same guidance is in place for those who live in a household with members who have visited, or who have themselves visited, China, Iran, Italy, or South Korea.
We kindly request that if you are not feeling well, please reschedule your visit for when you are feeling better for the safety of our team and other customers.
