Class 1:
Represents a youthful hairline without evidence of recession or balding.

Class 2:
A very slight loss of the frontal hairline with temple recession beginning. This is a mature adult hairline and does not represent balding.

Class 2a:
The entire anterior border of the hairline lies high on the forehead. No sparing of the mid-frontal region is noted except some sparse hairs.

Class 3:
The minimal hair loss extent sufficient to be considered as baldness. It is characterized by a symmetric, deepening temporal recession.

Class 3 vertex:
Early hair loss in the crown, is mostly seen with advancing age and is primarily similar to type III.

Class 3a:
The frontal and temporal scalp have few remaining hairs.

Class 4:
Characterized by further frontal hair loss and enlargement of vertex, but there is still a solid band of hair across the top (mid-scalp) separating front and vertex.

Class 4a:
The area of hair loss now extends beyond the frontal half of the superior scalp.

Class 5:
Characterized by further frontal hair loss and enlargement of vertex, but there is still a solid band of hair across the top (mid-scalp) separating front and vertex.

Class 5a:
The area of hair loss now extends beyond the frontal half of the superior scalp.

Class 6:
After loss of the central hair tuft, a single large bald area on the front and top of the scalp remains. The hair on the sides of the scalp remains relatively high.

Class 7:
The most severe form of male pattern baldness, only a narrow horseshoe-shaped band formed by the hair located on the back and sides of the scalp remains.
