I think all babies grow hair in at different times.  If you feel worried about it then bring it up to the doctor but I don't think it's cause for concern.

both my girls were little baldies for what seemed like forever! seriously, other little girls had tons of hair and my one year couldn't even make the teensiest ponytail.  oh, well, they both have hair now, nothing to worry about!

My eldest came into the world with a massive head of hair and has always had hair.  My littlest came into this world mostly bald, got more bald and stayed that way until she was almost 2 then BAM she had hair.  And now they've both cut their hair short.  :(

Oh, man.  My parents didn't think my hair would ever grow.  I had only fuzz on my head until I was 2 1/2 years old.  Now, my hair is maga thick and annoying.  :)

My husbands DD ( my stepdaughter) had hair just like your DD.  I didn't know her then, but with all the pictures I have seen she was close to bald even after her 1st bday.  She grew a little hair in the back but not much on top.  Well, as her hair grew in it was just very fine.  Even today she is going to be 10 and she still has really fine hair....

Lol... oh, but she is SO cute!  I know what you mean about the "old man" look.  Although my daughter does have hair, she's a blondie so it's very light and fine... and most of her hair is collected like a ring around the back part of her head so she looks like one of those little old cute balding guys with the ring of hair around the back.  That, or it looks vaguely like a mullet as was pointed out by a friend of mine (b/c it's longer in the back).  =)  On a side note, I was bald as a cue ball until I was 1 1/2 years old... and even then, my mom could barely get a bow in my hair.

Both of my nieces were bald as a cue ball until they were 3.  Now they have beautiful curly hair.  It will grow.

My sister and I were both bald until about 1 and a half years old. It will grow eventually:) In fact, I've always been happy with my hair(one of the only things LOL!). Anyway, she is gorgeous and will have tons of hair before know it;)

my daughter was born with only a bit of fuzz all over - very blonde - except for this long patch of dark hair at the base of her skull - she was my little redneck rockin her mullet - now she's almost fifteen months - her dark mullet is long gone - her hair is still long in back and has gotten long on top - but is growing soooooooo slow on the sides - now she's got a little blonde mohawk - lol - with some creative combing - it looks just fine - each little one gets their hair in different ways and different times - trust me, when she is four and throwing a fit because she doesn't want to sit still while you comb and brush her hair into a ponytail - you'll look back at this time and laugh!!!
