FINDING A TALENTED HAIR STYLIST CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE A STYLISH AND FASHIONABLE LOOK, NO MATTER WHAT HAIR LOSS CONDITION YOU MAY HAVE.
Millions of men have thinning hair. Instead of resorting to a comb-over or shaving it off completely, do a little research, locate a good stylist and find the perfect hairstyle for you. Let’s take a look at some of the best hairstyles for men with thinning hair.
The Caesar cut, made famous by George Clooney in recent years, works for men young and old. This cut complements all face shapes and any type of hair — straight, curly or wavy. With this popular men’s hairstyle, the hair is layered to about 1-2 inches all over with a horizontal straight-cut fringe (bangs) pushed toward the front.
This haircut is easy to maintain and perfect for men with a receding hairline. Add a dollop of mousse to damp hair and then arrange the hair with your fingers, brushing the bangs toward the front. Let your hair dry naturally and then smooth a little pomade over it.
If your hair is just beginning to thin on the crown, don’t shave it all off. Instead, you need some texture. A textured crop will help disguise thinning hair with many minilayers. The multitude of short layers gives the appearance of thicker, fuller locks. This short haircut is perfect for professional men or just about anyone. Your stylist will cut layers on the top of the head, tapering the sides and the back. To style, add a little pomade to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and then rub the top of your hair to add some volume.
The messy look
For men with wavy hair, a messy, tousled haircut is a good choice. With this style, hair is normally longer on the top and shorter on the sides and back. Apply a body-boosting styling product to help plump your hair. When it comes to shampoo, conditioner, mousse and other products, look for the words “volumizing” or “thickening” on the container. Add a dollop of mousse to damp hair. Blow-dry your hair, scrunching it with your fingers to give it a messy, thicker appearance.
For most men with thin hair, a very short cut is the best option. Longer hair will appear even thinner and more brittle. Hair generally is stronger toward the root, so shorter haircuts make your hair look thicker. A buzz cut or other short hairstyle will project the appearance that your hair is thick but just short. This style can be performed at any hair salon or barbershop, but remember you must get it cut very often. Therefore, it’s probably in your best interest to purchase a hair trimmer and do it yourself at home!
This isn’t the punk Mohawk that was famous back in the 1980s. It’s an upgraded, shorter version that doesn’t involve shaving the sides of the head. Instead, hair is short on the sides and back; however, it has a small but noticeable spike in the middle. This hairstyle is a bit daring but can work for men with a receding hairline.
David Beckham and Jude Law are just a couple of the celebrities who have worn the fauxhawk. The attention focused on the middle of head, the spike, takes the eyes away from the receding hair at the temples. You don’t have to wear the hair in the middle spiked up all the time. You can smooth it down, brush it back or part it to the side for the office.
When men see their hair begin to thin, they tend to think the worst and overreact by resorting to drastic measures. However, that is totally unnecessary. Many fantastic hairstyle options remain — adapting is simply a matter of knowing about compatible styles and having the courage to give change a chance.
