The most common characteristics seem to be more hair growing back around the ears and in a band going around the head. The crown and front have much less. These are the usual signs but of course, they can vary from woman to woman. 

If left to grow in length the look of the photograph top right of this page is typical. 

Women are often torn between letting it grow, just so they have 'some' hair but then having to cope with the 'look', and shaving the scalp to make wearing scarves and wigs easier.
