Do all males bald in the same way?

The answer to that is no. Most men whonare going to bald first notice changes in the temples and/or crown and then ultimately bald according to the so called "Hamilton Norwood" scale. However this male shown in the photo has a pattern of balding that does not match up to any of the Hamilton Norwood patterns. He has what is known as a "female" pattern of male balding where the central scalp is involved first and the frontal hairline is relatively unaffected. This pattern of androgenetic hair loss is common in women and affects about 10-13 % of males.
