Thinning hair is a problem that most guys encounter in their lifetime, and one that many men are self-conscious of. Whilst there’s no shame in losing volume up top, there are several easy ways for men to manage thinning hair without resorting to any drastic treatments. Here are a few tips from our Fremantle hairdressers on how to maintain and style thinning hair.
Keep it cropped
When your hair starts to thin and your hairline begins receding, your first reaction may be to hold on to what you’ve got. However, whilst instinct might tell you to grow your hair longer to cover up hair loss, this can actually draw more attention to the fact your hair is thinning in the first place. Instead, embrace the situation by opting for a shorter hairstyle or even a buzzcut. These shorter styles will look far more natural than covering up your thinning hair with a less-than-stylish combover.
Pick the right products
If you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to your hair altogether, make sure you use products that add volume to your hairstyle. Products such as textured powders and mousses are great for creating volume and structure to give your hair a fuller, thicker appearance. Be careful with hair gels and wax, as too much of these products can cause the hair to separate and show off the scalp.
Washing hair regularly with shampoo and conditioner should already be a part of any man’s grooming routine, but overwashing is also a big mistake made by men with thinning hair. Instead of washing your hair on a daily basis, consider cutting the washes down to help the production of your hair’s natural oils. These will give your hair natural volume and body to detract from any overly-thin areas.
Maintain your cut
Regular hair cuts with a good men’s hairdresser are always essential if you want to keep your hair in shape, but even more so if you have a problem with thinning hair. Whether you’re maintaining a buzz cut or keeping it slightly longer up top with a short back and sides, regular cuts will keep any thinning spots well hidden to ensure no one is the wiser.
Embrace the beard
If you want to draw attention away from your thinning hair, try balancing out your look with well-groomed facial hair instead. Designer stubble or a well-kempt beard will create depth to your overall appearance and take the focus away from any thinning areas up top.
