Bad news for FPHL sufferers - the centre parting is backFashion and beauty trends are ever-changing, but one trend making a comeback that’s causing concern for FPHL (female pattern hair loss) sufferers is the centre parting.

Stars such as Elle Fanning, Sarah Jessica Parker and Sienna Miller have all been spotted blissfully flaunting the symmetrical, even flowing look. However, for those suffering with female pattern baldness, achieving a flawless centre parting isn’t easy.

If you’re an FPHL sufferer, don’t worry! There are ways you can flaunt this comeback trend without losing your confidence.

The problem with FPHL and the centre parting

Female pattern hair loss is surprisingly common these days. Unlike male pattern baldness, FPHL largely affects the area near the parting. The hair becomes thinner and around the parting it becomes particularly sparse, often with clear bald patches.

So, when you’re looking at hair trends, the centre parting isn’t exactly ideal if you’re looking to cover up your balding problem. However, that isn’t to say you have to miss out on the look. There are numerous treatment options available that can help you disguise your wider-than-average parting.

Treatment options to help you embrace the centre parting

If you’re looking to get in on the centre parting trend, there are a few different treatments options available.

By far the most effective is SMP. Scalp MicroPigmentation involves tattooing the scalp with realistic looking pigments to disguise balding areas. Commonly used to create a shaved look on men, it’s also effective at covering bald patches, particularly around the parting for FPHL sufferers. There are hundreds of different coloured pigments available, ensuring the treatment you receive is flawless and natural-looking.

If the hair loss is mild or you are in the early stages of FPHL, you could also benefit from medications and topical treatments such as Minoxidil or low level laser treatment.

Overall, just because you suffer from female pattern hair loss, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the latest hair trends. Consult an hair expert today and see what treatments are available to suit you.
