How do you measure the hairline height to create a hairline in a hair transplant?

Asked By:surgeriesandetc in Australia, AU

So, an average non balding hairline is meant to be 5-6cm, but nowhere actually explains where to measure to? I measure from my hairline and to what point? The top of the eyebrows? Bottom of them? Middle of the eyes?
