The struggle with thinning and receding hairlines is real. You cannot hide from it. You cannot run away from it. But you can certainly get it in control and display it in style. So say goodbye to boring hair and ugly combovers. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start rocking a new look. Here are five slick haircut inspirations that will have you loving that hairline.

Haircuts for Receding Hairline Style # 1


A slick haircut for a receding hairline does not have to end in disaster. It does not have to end with a look that you will forever regret so long as you shall live. If styled just the right way on just the right face shape with just the right amount of styling products, you can have the just the right hairstyle that will completely transform how you look.

Our first haircut may be high on the hairline, but you have to admit that this slick look is just what this haircut needs to make it look better and a lot sexier. The receding hairline is barely noticeable because of the impressive combover that looks very polished and neat. The beard also gives a nice balance to the face, creating a smaller forehead because of the fullness of the beard. The sides are nicely trimmed, which help in combing the hair all the way to the back as well.

It’s not even a complicated slick hairstyle to achieve. Just a good amount of hair pomade and a fine-toothed comb are all you need. You just need to comb the hair all the way to the back, making it as smoot and as polished as possible.

Haircuts for Receding Hairline Style # 2


If you have a receding hairline, this doesn’t mean the end of stylish and exciting hairstyles. This doesn’t mean ugly combovers and awkward fringes from here on out. As this next hairstyle will illustrate, you can still enjoy a great hairstyle even with a receding hairline.

You have to resist the urge to hide your receding hairline, though. The thing with receding hairlines is that the more you hide them, the more obvious they become, and the more awkward they look. However, when you wear a slick haircut, your hair looks good and stylish, which makes the receding hairline look not so bad after all.

For this particular slick haircut, you can ask your barber to do a high fade on the sides and the back. You can also opt to do a hard part or just a soft part a little off the center. From there, you can apply some pomade on your hair and comb it back with a fine-toothed comb.

You can make it as flat as you want, or you can also style it in a short pompadour. Keep it neat and slick. Make this the hairstyle that you wear to the office, or to special occasions, or to fancy parties. It will not let you down.

Haircuts for Receding Hairline Style # 3


If you have a receding hairline but a full head of hair, you have to work with what you’ve got. You have to take advantage of the hair that you still have and style it the best way that will enhance your features. Know what works for your age, your personality, and your lifestyle. So no, a comb down or a shaggy hairstyle just won’t work for everybody. It’s not a hairstyle that’s one size fits all.

However, a slick haircut will do nicely on just about any man and any age bracket. Get a good haircut with a good shape (short on sides, long on top). Apply your hairstyling product of choice, preferably one that can provide a soft and glossy finish as well as a light hold.

Comb your hair and style accordingly. It doesn’t have to be perfectly combed and flat on top of your head. You can make the hair look soft and full at the top, and really slicked back at the sides. Much like the hair on Mr. Jon Hamm here. You don’t need a black tie event to wear a hairstyle this fancy and formal, though. It’s pretty flexible and versatile and can be worn to almost anywhere.

Haircuts for Receding Hairline Style # 4


If you have the looks, the charm, the sense of humor, and the personality, a receding hairline can just add more sex appeal instead of decrease it. How many men have we seen with little to no hair that still look attractive and appealing on women and men alike? A lot. Too many to count. And they’re not only applicable on Hollywood men.

A slick haircut is just what you need to exude confidence and sexiness. With or without a receding hairline, it gives an instant sophistication and elegance to any look. It’s flattering on most men, and you can wear it with some facial hair or a clean shaven face. The effect will be much to your liking.

It’s not a difficult hairstyle to achieve, either. Just a little styling product and a comb, that’s it. No need to go to the salon and pay a ridiculous amount of money for a style that you can do at home yourself. (But if you prefer the salon experience and you have the money to spend, go right ahead and pamper yourself.)

Some men may find it hard to accept and embrace the fact that the hairline is a part of the body that will disappear sooner or later. Maybe a lot sooner for some, but definitely will happen to all men. But what the heck? You might as well look sensational with it. That’s why you need to find your signature slick haircut that will be fail-proof whenever and wherever. If you have a receding hairline, let the thickness or the fullness of your hair make up for it. Don’t ever resort to ugly combovers, because you will just be doing your hair a disservice.
