6 Hairstyles for men with thinning hair

There are some great hairstyles for men with thinning hair out there and we’re here to help you find one to suit your personal style. Styles for men with thinning hair are usually kept short with a strategic amount of length on the top. This length helps give you more volume and makes your hair look fuller, so it doesn’t appear as thin or flat. Read on to find a look that best suits your style.

If you’re struggling with a receding hairline, then a bold buzz cut is a great option for you. This hairstyle makes thinning hair less obvious. Plus, it’s a men’s style for thinning hair that’s easy to manage, and it doesn’t require any daily styling.


Fade cut

To create the illusion of thicker hair, we recommend you try a modern faded hair cut. Faded hairstyles for men with thinning hair help create contrast because the shorter back and sides help make your thinner strands on top look fuller. For a look with more volume, we recommend combing up and to one side to give your hair lift.

Short quiff

A short quiff style is actually one of the most versatile hairstyles for men with thinning hair. We say this because short quiffs are easy to style, and when styled correctly, they create the illusion of height and thickness. For extra volume, we suggest you pair your short quiff with shorter back and sides.

For a styled quiff look with added texture that will last, we recommend you use a volumising styling product. We suggest TONI&GUY 3D Volumiser Spray to create a textured hairstyle with volume that will hold all day.

If you’re not the quiff type, then we recommend an slick fade with textured hair on top to give you a look with more volume and movement. This men’s style for thinning hair is a great option if you want a cut with a rebellious vibe that looks modern and is easy to style.

We recommend you use a styling gel to create texture in the lengths of your hair. VO5 Sculpted Mega Hold Styling Gel will create your unique style and hold it. Remember to slowly build-up the amount of gel in your strands because too much will leave your hair feeling hard and will look unnatural.


Side-swept fringe

Those with longer thinning hair should consider a chop to help make your head of hair look fuller. Longer hair can be heavy and can weigh your hair down near your scalp, making your strands look much thinner than they actually are. But if you want to keep some length, try this look.

Keep your fringe and your hair on top longer than the back and sides of your hair to create more fullness near your hairline. For extra lift, sweep your fringe to one side to create a deep side part.

If you’re going to try this hairstyle for men with thinning hair, then we recommend you invest in some styling products to help create your style and make it last. Use VO5 Extreme Style Lifting Paste to help get a structured style that looks natural.


Tousled length with a fade

Short tousled hairstyles for men with thinning hair are an option we love. The shorter back and sides cut helps to accentuate your textured length on top. Not to mention, you can customise this look to suit your hair type and face shape.

Use VO5 Extra Body Styling Mousse to give the lengths of your hair a tousled look. If you’ve got natural curls, we suggest using this styling product to create definition in your curly hair.
