These are the best haircuts for men with thinning hair
Every man knows what to expect as he ages: Hair sprouts inconveniently all over the body, yet gradually disappears from the most desirable place.
Until some miracle genetic mutation eradicates hair loss altogether, we're faced with receding hairlines, thinning crowns, and power donuts. If you need advice on styling your nimble-by-nature hair, then consider these tips. And remember: Whatever you've got, own it. Confidence will go further than anything.
This is the first stage of hair loss for some, but the almost-certain destination for most men at some point. Keep the sides at least an inch long, and try various lengths up top; the peak plays nicely into your natural side part, so a slicked-to-the-side or swept-down look will complement you just fine.
If you don't want to shave it off entirely (which we kind of suggest doing, if you can accept the fact of the matter), then wear it at an even inch around the sides and back, and up top. Shave anything (with a razor) that sits out in the open like an island; it looks like a soul patch for your skull, and it's never flattering.
Receding or Thinning Crown
Basic logic will play well here. Grow your hair long enough all over—an inch should suffice—but longer on and near the thinning spot. It should deflect attention, so long as it isn't looking like a tacky combover. (You'll be fine if you keep everything between 1-2 inches.)
Familiarize yourself with hair paste, dry shampoo, and a blow dryer. They're your new best friends. Add texture and volume to your hair, keeping it clean and oil-free so that it stands higher and looks fuller. Your other option is to buzz your hair entirely and embrace the new you.
Bald Up Top, Hair on the Sides
Keep short what remains. Buzz it all the way down for some Jason Statham or Bruce Willis toughness, or wear everything at a close, half-inch crop.
