It is common for men to have high temples, but it also affects some women. The hair loss that occurs when the hairline begins to creep upwards in men is usually hereditary. In women, it may be due to age or illness.
The temples are the part found on either side of the head at the hairline. When the hairline starts to creep upwards, this is also known as having high temples.
To lower a hairline, a hair transplant can be done.

Why do we lose hair in the temples?
Your hair follicles at the temples are more fragile and sensitive than the hair follicles at the nape of your neck. Although hair lossis individual, the temples are a common area of hair loss, and where hair loss begins for many men.
When hair loss starts varies from person to person. It is most common for men to lose hair at the temples around the age of 25-35. Some lose hair early and others lose hair later, or never.
Women who suffer from high temples have a decreased amount of estrogen and an increased amount of testosterone in their body.
Reduced oestrogen production occurs, for example, as women get older – but not all women suffer from high temples and thinning hair. Some diseases lead to increased testosterone levels in women, such as PCOS.
Why hair loss occurs at the bends is due to the increased production of the hormone DHT(dihydrotestosterone) in the body. DHT contributes to the shrinkage of hair follicles, which in turn causes hair to thin and eventually fall out.
Hair transplantation at the temples
For many people, hair loss and the upward creep of the hairline is a pain. To bring back the hair at the temples and lower the hairline, a hair transplant is a good and appropriate treatment.
With a hair transplant, you can fill in the temples and get an even hairline. The procedure gives a natural result where the transplanted hair blends in with the other hair.
A hair transplant leaves no visible scars and is the only permanent solution.
After a hair transplant, many people find that their self-confidence improves. Instead of having to comb your hair in a certain way to hide the temples, you can vary their hairstyles and get a boost in confidence.Read more about hair transplantation for women
