Hair loss has many different patterns in shapes in different people. Usually, it comes slowly, but in some cases, it may happen relatively rapidly too.

The most common cause of hair loss is genetics we inherit from our parents. Often we people refer to hereditary hair loss as male/female pattern baldness. The patterns of hair loss are quite predictable when the cause is genetic.

Hormones, Medications and Other Conditions

Other times, hair loss may stem from hormonal fluctuations and other illnesses. Hair loss from these causes may be permanent, but most often it is temporary. Pregnant women may experience some degree of hair loss during or after pregnancy, for example. Or likewise, women entering menopause phase can see a similar effect. Often people with thyroid problems experience some degree of hair loss too. 

Certain medication used in treating various diseases can also have a similar effect. In popular culture, we see examples of predominantly radiotherapy and chemotherapy-induced hair loss. Though other medications can be the cause too. For example:
