5 Styling Tips for Men With Thin Hair
Whether you have naturally thin hair or your locks are getting thinner with age, it's common for men to feel self-conscious about their fine hair.
If you're reading this article, you're not alone. Over 35 million men suffer from hair loss, often beginning at age 35 with a 40% loss rate.
Worry not — there are many easy-to-manage and fashionable hairstyles that work well with thinner hair.
So, with that in mind, we’ll explore five styling tips for guys with thin hair.
1. Shorten Your Sides
If you go for an even cut all over, it's more evident that your hair on top is receding or thinning. Take your sides down shorter than the hair on top of your head to distract from its fineness.
This also draws the eyes of the observer to the sides and this style has a modern, casual flair. There are plenty of popular and trending styles that support this strategy.
2. Don't Shy Away From Texture
Highly textured hair is a friend to guys with thin hair as it makes the issue less obvious. Where possible, it also enables you to maintain your hair's thickness.
The extra volume that comes with the disheveled look gives the appearance of thicker hair. It also naturally embraces your hairline.
Use a texturizing product like pomade and work it through your hair to spike it. However, don’t use too much product.
3. Go Easy on the Product and Use Matte
It's best not to weigh thin hair down. Saturating your hair with product risks just that.
Use product sparingly and apply it evenly throughout your hair. If your hairline is receding at the front, avoid applying too much product there.
If you want your hair to look thicker, matte products are preferable over a high-shine product. The high shine lends itself better to slick and pristine hairstyles, which as mentioned, are not suited to thin hair.
Matte products also lend an appearance of thickness to your hair and they're lightweight. This means your hair won’t be weighed down.
4. Be Gentle
Avoid further thinning your hair. This can happen if you roughly rub your hair after a shower, wear tight hats, or comb your hair over in an attempt to cover thinner areas.
All of these methods risk damaging the hair at the root and hindering regrowth, which can lead to premature thinning.
5. Consult Your Barber
Be clear and upfront with your barber from the get-go. Tell them what you want — ask them not to use thinning scissors, as this can make your scalp more visible.
Your barber should also be able to advise you of suitable hairstyles to embrace your natural fineness.
