Norwood Scale for Male Pattern Baldness

The Norwood Scale, is also referred to as the Norwood-Hamilton Scale. It is widely used as a classification system for categorising and describing the stages of male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia in men. The scale helps healthcare professionals and qualified SMP technicians determine the appropriate course of hair loss treatment based on the stage and severity of the condition.

Norwood Classification for SMP

The Norwood Classification for male Pattern Alopecia, was originally developed by Dr. James Hamilton in the 1950s and later modified and popularized by Dr. O’Tar Norwood in the 1970s.

There was an opening – a requirement – to create an official grading and classification system; one that would help when diagnosing and tracking the progression of male hair loss. 

The Norwood Scale remains widely used today – also by Simon Symeou SMP.

Spectacular place. Simon made me feel confident in understanding the steps and treatment beforehand, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Amazing customer service, very friendly. I compared many different artists, Simon's work is much more realistic, which you can compare from his instagram profile. His workplace is discreet and immaculate inside, on arrival, you will be offered simons special selection of coffee and tea😂. Simon had a passion for his work, and I can guarantee he will not allow his work to finish till you are satisfied.I highly recommend. Thank you Simon.
The results speak for themselves. A true professional while remaining a really humble down to earth guy. I honestly enjoyed each and every session and Simon remains there for support and advice till this very day. 5 out of 5 from me.

If you are looking for the best practitioner of SMP then look no further because you have found him - Simon is as good as it gets and he offers expertise that can't be found anywhere else. He is MORE than worth the price and will ensure that you are taken care of properly. I'm very glad that I found him and chose him to do my SMP; his attention to detail is top level and even with the work aside, he is just a great guy to chat with and be around. Even outside of the SMP he gave me a lot of great advice and knowledgeable insight on things for many topics. You will be in safe hands with Simon so I advise anyone reading this to contact him for SMP as soon as possible - your search has finally led you to the right place! I highly recommend. Thanks for taking care of me, Simon, and thanks for the great work. - Aaron

I’m a woman that suffered from traction alopecia which did affect my confidence for many years. My nightmare changed as soon as I met Simon. He did turn things around for me and restored my confidence with his work of Art! From his professionalism, to his warm personality, I can sincerely say without a shadow of doubt, Simon is unequivocally the best! If you’re thinking of having an SMP done, look no further. Thank you Simon for making it possible to smile each time I look in the mirror 🙏🏽

I will sum up Simon in a few words, 'a truly phenomenal artist'. It took me over a year to research the right company to do my SMP. Over that time, I kept coming back to Simon - I am so pleased I took the time to find the right person. Money, it is very simple, if you want quality, you have to pay for it. Some of the horrific SMP procedures I have seen, made me spend time to find the right person. If I could give Simon 10 STARS, I would! If anyone would like to talk to me, I have told Simon, I am happy for him to pass on my contact number. Thank you so much Simon, for changing my life for the better!

Norwood Scale for Male Pattern Hair Loss
Stage 1,2 and 3

The Norwood Scale typically consists of seven main stages, and here are the first 3:

Norwood Stage I: Hair loss is not significant. The hairline at this stage is usually straight across the forehead.

Norwood Stage II: A slight recession of the hairline will be noticed (mature hairline / adult hairline).

Norwood Stage III: Receding of the hairline is more noticeable, with a V shape on the forehead.

Norwood Stage III Vertex: As well as the frontal hairline recession, there is also thinning or balding at the vertex / crown of the head.

Norwood Scale - Stages 4 and 5

Norwood Stage IV: More hair loss, and further balding at the front area and the crown area.

Norwood Stage V: The balding areas at the front and the crown start to separate. Not much hair can be seen in the area between the crown and the front.


Norwood Scale - Stage 6 and 7

Norwood Stage VI:

Enlarged bald areas at the front and crown – can eventually combine into a larger bald area.

Norwood Stage VII:

This is the most advanced stage. A lot of hair loss with only a band of hair (horse shoe shaped) remaining – can be seen along the sides of the head and along the back of the head.

What Happens During SMP Treatment?

Are you tired of constantly battling with hair loss? Are you looking for a way that works? Say goodbye to daily concealing, camouflage and tireless hair maintenance.

During an SMP procedure, a trained SMP technician uses modern SMP techniques to apply a hair tattoo (different procedure to the traditional tattoo). Tiny pigment dots are applied to the scalp’s surface, so what you have is 3D dots covering the affected area – looks like a hair follicle.

SMP is minimally invasive and non surgical and it is a very safe procedure to have. It’s a solution to gaining renewed confidence and a natural, restored hairline.

Don’t worry about the colour not matching your own hair colour. A professional SMP technician matches everything perfectly so everything blends together seamlessly.

SMP results are both immediate and long lasting. Over the past 7 years, our clients have enjoyed life changing benefits. If you are ready to transform your life with SMP, get in touch to book your free consultation.
