: My dad is 62 years old and he's pretty much bald. Minus the hair that surrounds the side of his head. I'm currently clocking in at 35 years old.
: The question is, if the dad is bald, is it an indication of going bald?
: The hair is going at 29 months or so.
Usually, if you are going to go bald, at least in the classic MPB way, there is pronounced receding at the temples by age 30. Almost all men have some hair loss in that area, but it has to be highly visible in your 20s.
I have a friend whose father was bald, and both his younger brothers are bald, but he isn't, so although genetics do come into it, it isn't a sure thing. He's a year younger than me, and I'm 59, so if he was going to go bald, it would have happened way before now.
