Finding inspiration for that next hairstyle takes effort. In a recent GQ article, entertainment editor Naveen Kumar humorously explores the evolution of his facial hair to suggest that the best source of hairstyle inspiration might just be old photos of our parents! For thick-haired people whose parents never suffered hair loss, this might be a great idea. If old photos of your parents show the same thinning and balding hair that you struggle with, however, the process will probably be more difficult. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we’re dedicated to empowering you with more choices over your hair. Many people say we’re doomed to become our parents, but if you want to escape generations of balding, we have great options to help you change your fate.

For Kumar, the process of realizing how closely his hair resembled his father’s styling forty years ago was slow. As a college freshman, he slowly grew out his sideburns, but carefully shaved his slowly thickening facial hair each morning. One day he skipped his morning shaving routine and went to a party later that night with stubble showing on his face. An unexpected compliment led to his decision to experiment with facial hair. After years of trying different styles, Kumar settled on a short beard and prominent mustache as the best way to express his identity. To his surprise, he later discovered a photograph of his father with a nearly identical style in 1978.

Kumar always admired his father, so the realization of the uncanny similarities between their hairstyle choices came as a pleasant surprise. For many families, however, choice does not play into the equation. If you’ve inherited hereditary hair loss conditions from one of your parents, your increasingly similar hairline struggles are likely unwanted and deeply frustrating. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we want to give each of our clients the power of choice. We offer world-class hair transplant surgeries and scalp micropigmentation procedures so that you can choose the hairstyle that gives you the look you’ve always wanted. If you’re tired of genetics controlling your hairstyling options, contact Vinci Hair Clinic today to set up a consultation with one of our experts.
