Many men are self-conscious about thin or thinning hair. They hunt for solutions that fix the problem and think thin hair can't be styled appropriately to appear flattering. But experienced hairstylists will tell you differently. Thin hair isn't just easy to style, but can also be very flattering. Some cuts and styles show better results on thin hair than on thick, voluminous locks. Here are some of the best hairstyles for men with thin hair:
When you think of pompadour, the voluminous pomp at the top is the first thing that comes to mind. This has led many people to believe that they can't choose this hairstyle on thin hair. Pomps can easily give the illusion of volume because of the nature of this style. The extreme fade along the sides and back draw focus towards the fluffy pomp on top, makes your hair look thicker.
You can slick the hair to lay flat on the scalp or fluff it up with some texturizing mousse, both options will ensure your hair looks thick and healthy. The best part is that the pompadour is an easy hairstyle that can work for both informal and formal occasions.
2. Tidy Side Sweep
Thin hair usually has a manageable texture. It's easy to comb it into a professional style that looks neat and classy. The side sweep is one of the easiest styles to pull off on thin hair, especially if the hair doesn't have much product in it. Heavy gels or sprays will weigh the hair down, which can make it look flat and very thin.
However, freshly washed and dried hair has a fluffy texture with a silky, sleek appearance. All you need to do is to ensure the hair is of decent length, comb it into a deep side sweep, and set it with a hairspray if needed. This is the perfect style for business meetings or work.
3. Short Sweep With a High Fade
This style is similar to a pompadour, but you have a short sweep instead of longer strands of hair. A short sweep requires hair to be cut short enough to stand up like tall grass. This gives the hair texture and an appearance of volume at the top. The high fade on the side and back ensures the focus is on the top.
This style is perfect for both formal and casual events and easy to maintain. It mimics a comb-over without causing any damage to your hair. You can add some matte texturizing product to build up the volume but make sure the hair isn't too weighed down by product.
4. Side Sweep with Uneven Edges
This works like layers do on long hair by adding texture and dimension. The uneven cut creates an illusion of volume, disguising any thinning spots. The style is ideal for men with blond hair because it the light color reflects off the jagged edges to trick the hair.
The side sweep adds to the volume and directs attention away from thinning spots. This is a very youthful style and can make you look younger. It might need a little careful styling to ensure the look is suitable for formal occasions like interviews or business meetings.
5. Brushed Up for a Receding Hairline
A receding hairline is immediately noticeable and it's difficult to find cuts that flatter it. Fortunately, there are many styles that cleverly disguise it and give the illusion of volume. The brushed up style is perfect because you are bushing the hair at the front forward and upward instead of backward and downward.
This requires some styling gel and texturizing mousse to ensure the hair doesn't naturally fall back. This creates texture in the front, top, and sides, which is a perfect way to add dimension. This is a very flattering style, especially if you like the casual look.
These are just some of the many styles suitable for thin or thinning hair. You just need to be a little creative and find something that flatters your face shape well.
