Men can be affected by several types of hair loss, including receding hairlines or bald spots. These conditions can occur independently or together, but the good news is that they don’t have to have a big impact on your life. There are many ways to minimize the appearance of hair loss and thinning hair. Check out these hairstyles that can help you look great!
Tackling that Receding Hairline
A receding hairline usually starts at the temples, with the hairline slowly moving up the forehead, giving the appearance of a long forehead. The pattern differs depending on the person, but certain haircuts can help you keep the hair you have and cut down on the appearance of loss.
The Slick Back
Slicking your hair back with a little volume in front can help make your hair look fuller and draw attention away from a receding hairline. Keep your hair short — about an inch all over. The extra volume in front will help it look longer. It’s also a good look for when hair starts thinning at the crown.
The Blend/The Power Donut
If your hair is thinning more at the top, keeping the sides a little longer and fuller will help your whole head of hair look thicker. It’s a great option if you don’t want to go short all around. Your hair can subtly transition from scalp to thin hair to full hair. A more dramatic version of this is the Power Donut. That’s where you wear the sides longer and slicked back (think Ed Harris) and just sort of ignore the missing hair on top.
A buzz cut all around — yes, even on your beard — is a great way to create continuity between the spots where you do have hair and the spots where it is thinning. It’s one length all over and is easy to do yourself.
That Bald Spot
Male pattern baldness often results in a bald spot at the top or crown of the head, making it easy to disguise. In that regard, layers can create more texture on the head and disguise any areas that might be thinning. Keep it fairly short with longer layers as you move away from the bald spot and out toward the hairline.
Attractive Facial Hair
Facial hair draws attention away from thinning or balding hair. You can go with a little sexy scruff or a manly thick beard or goatee.
It’s time to stop feeling shy about thinning hair — in fact, many men are now taking early action and seeking professional advice before there is any noticeable loss. A hair loss specialist helps you to understand what’s happening, explore your options and minimize hair loss.
