If you’re a guy who has thin or thinning hair or has been experiencing some hair loss, it can feel like a mission to find a style that works for you.
You may have been told by friends and family members to “just shave it all off!”, and although they’re trying to be supportive, sometimes you’re simply not ready to commit to the no-hair look, or you’re sure it won’t suit you.
With the right products and a positive attitude whilst you experiment with your thinning hair, you can totally master the style and cut for you.
So, what hairstyles and cuts work best for thinning hair in men?
This style is classic, simple, and easy to maintain! Ask your barber for a medium length and a deep side parting. The front section of the hair should be swept up and away from the face.
Use a mousse or a texturing gel to help it stay put all day. Compliment this look with a pair of tapered sideburns.
When people think of mohawks they think of brightly coloured, super long, and exaggerated hair: a rocker on a motorcycle, right? But the mohawk style can actually be super understated, and if you have a square shaped face and thinning hair, a tame mohawk could really be the look for you!
You want it shaved at the sides with a slightly longer central line, creating a demure mohawk. Opt for a trimmed, short beard to help draw more focus to your jaw and away from any thinning hairline.
This popular military style is actually brilliant for masking thinning hair. It’s when it’s very short up the sides and longer on the top. A scruffy beard can be a great addition to this style as it will support in defining your jawline.
If you’ve still got some length, don’t be afraid to capitalise on it. You can commit to length, despite thinning or receding. The trick here is to keep the longer strands nourished, hydrated, and in excellent condition. This will help boost that sheen of healthy shine!
Try Cel’s Microstem Hair Thickening Mask twice a week! After washing hair with Microstem Shampoo, rinse thoroughly and then coat the hair with a generous amount of hair mask from root to tip. Leave on for at least a minute (longer for deeper conditioning) before rinsing thoroughly.
One of the ingredients in the Microstem Hair Thickening Mask is Glycerine. This is a powerful, non-toxic sugar compound that works as a moisture sponge to keep the scalp and hair hydrated, whilst preventing skin irritation.
As well as keeping existing hair nurtured and moisturised, the formula also contains Active Panax Ginseng which works to increase the number of dermal papilla cells in the scalp, and also stimulates your follicles to encourage more hair growth where it has started to thin or recede. Try it today!
Slicking the hair back and applying a light lift at the roots with some mousse or sea salt spray, can boost any limp, fine, or thin looking hair. Grow out some stubble with this style and you’ll boss that rugged look and detract from any thinning areas.
Colouring the hair a natural, lighter colour like blonde, white or grey can support in making receding hairlines look less prominent. If you’re not ready to grey naturally, or succumb to losing the hair completely, this might be a great option to consider.
Ask your barber about dyeing the hair, and also definitely do a patch test to rule out any allergies to the dye you’re going to use at least 24 hours before! Any good hairdresser or barber should insist on it.
No matter how long the hair is on top, purposely styling it upwards to add height is going to make it seem fuller. Brush or comb the hair away from the forehead and style with gel, mousse, or hairspray.
There are loads of hair cuts and styles out there for men that boost the look of thinning or receding hair, so try not to feel disheartened or defeated if you haven’t found yours yet.
Find some time to get creative and experiment working out what your next cut is going to be, or how you might attempt to style your hair next. Adopt some positivity and put time aside to play with your hair in the mirror and commit to working out the look that makes you feel confident and happy.
