Best hairstyles for thinning hair

If you’ve noticed your hair thinning, switching up your hairstyle can give you a new wave of confidence. For those who have maintained the same look for years, it’s understandable that this can feel intimidating, but the truth is that changing hairstyles can give you a new lease of life. With that in mind, we’ve brought together some of the best hairstyles for thinning hair, all of which are easy to maintain. Let’s take a look.


The Buzz Cut

Simple, straightforward and stylish, it’s no surprise why the buzz cut is a certified classic. It’s also perfect for guys on all scales of the Norwood Scale and those who prefer to use less styling products. A buzz cut can also make a receding hairline seem less obvious, especially when combined with a fade.


The Mop Top

If you prefer longer hair but still want to make thinning less obvious, a mop top is a fantastic choice. There’s plenty of room for self-styling, too. Some guys like brushing mop tops sideways across their foreheads, while others prefer the more ‘straight-down’ look. Another great aspect of the mop top is that you can easily vary the length of your hair, whether that be a short Beatles look or something longer and shaggier.


The Pompadour

Fancy a more retro vibe? The pompadour is the hairstyle for you. Popularised back in the ‘40s and ’50s, the pompadour works superbly with a variety of looks. It’s also suitable for those dealing with the first signs of diffuse thinning. If you’re starting to spot these early signs on your crown, the slick back pompadour look can make it seem much less obvious. 

The Crew Cut

Another classic haircut perfect for those dealing with thinning, the crew cut keeps things simple while providing a stylish edge. The crew cut is great for making hair loss subtler thanks to less contrast between the sides of your head and the temples, which makes the hairline more even. The crew cut is refreshingly adaptable too, as well as being easy to manage. 


The Full Shave

Struggling to find a style you like? The full shave is always an option. Plenty of guys suit a full shave, and there’s no doubt that it’s a straightforward way to deal with hair loss. While it still requires weekly maintenance, you can always regrow a fully shaved head if you fancy it, and hair loss treatment plans will still work just as effectively. 

The Faux Hawk

Looking for a ‘safe for work’ mohawk style? The Faux Hawk is the style for you. This style requires regular barber visits, hair products and daily maintenance, but the result is a haircut that will help you stand out from the crowd. It’s also particularly suitable for those dealing with hair thinning and can be easily adapted to cover up the worst areas.



Never forget that guys dealing with hair loss still look great with all kinds of styles. The key is uncovering a haircut that perfectly fits your style. However you decide to style your hair, the most important part of any cut is the confidence it gives you.
