There are more attractive way to style thin hair than just the Donald Trump combover. Bad hairstyles can put even more emphasis on the thinness of the hair instead of the other way around.
The trick to styling thin hair is to keep it short and cropped, or short with lots of volume on top. This will work on straight, wavy, and even curly hair.
Don’t let thin hair stop you from sporting a sexy and stylish hairstyle. Here are six examples of hairstyles for men with thin hair that look great, and are very easy to maintain.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 1
One way to make thin hair look fuller is to get a hairstyle like this. The sides and back are cropped close to the skin, while the hair at the top is thicker and longer. This is also a good hairstyle if you’ve got a tall or receding hairline.
You can rumple the top hair with your fingers for that natural soft curl, and maybe apply a little hair clay for a dry matte finish. You can also create more volume by doing a brush-up, or by simply raking your fingers through your hair until it builds more height. You want a haircut that will look age appropriate and will enhance your best features.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 2
Another hairstyle that you can create for thin hair is this fade haircut with a long side combover. Get a soft side part going, and then apply some pomade or hair wax on your top hair. It doesn’t need to be perfectly combed. You can make it as messy or as rumpled as you want.
You can make it taller and create a pompadour, or you can just comb it all the way to the back for a slick brushback. Just keep the hair soft and smooth.
Don’t put a lot of styling products as this can make the hair look heavy and sticky. When hair starts to clump together, it can even look a lot thinner than it actually is.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 3
This is another flattering hairstyle for men with thin hair. Keep it stylish yet classic, with the sides and the back neatly trimmed. The top hair is quite short, but styled to look tall and thick.
It’s natural and attractive, and it doesn’t look forced. It also doesn’t look like it’s trying too hard to be something that it’s not. When you have thin hair, you should wear it short and cropped. It’s not only easier to manage and style, it will also give you a neater and more professional look.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 4
You can create the illusion of thickness and volume by wearing a hairstyle such as this one. The hair is heavily textured around the sides and the back. It’s also long enough to cover the back of the neck.
The sharp edges add texture to an otherwise flat and fine hair. It’s also a fun and young hairstyle that’s perfect for college guys and young professionals.
You can apply some pomade or hair wax to make the hair look longer and fuller. Take your blow dryer and guide the hair to the height and style that you want. Remember to use a styling product that has a light to medium hold and will not put extra weight on the hair.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 5
You can also go the bold route and just shave all of your hair off. Rather than wear a ridiculous-looking combover, go for the buzz cut that’s not only sexy and stylish, but also instantly transforms how you look. For the better.
You can even do it yourself. You just need to invest in a good set of head razor, a large mirror, and a firm resolve to shave it all off. (Don’t worry. If you hate your bald head, hair will grow back.)
You can have your hair buzzed as close to the skin as possible, or you can also enjoy an inch or two of hair for now. A lot of men have done it, and most of them are sticking to it. Because you know what they say? Once you go bald, there’s no going back.
Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair # 6
Like we said earlier, if you have very fine hair, make it look thicker and stronger. Keep the sides and the back cropped short and tight, and let the hair on top be styled any way you want. Create more volume. Build higher height. Keep it soft and full, preferably in a darker color. (If you have light colored hair, avoid the gloss and shine and just go for a dry matte finish.)
Wash your hair regularly, because greasy and dirty hair tends to look flat and stringy, which makes it look thinner and more fragile. Shampoo your hair to remove dirt and grime, and to keep it soft and manageable. Condition regularly for more bounce and shine.
Blow drying can be your best friend, because it can add instant volume. But don’t overdo it as this can cause the hair to look dried out and brittle.
When you comb or brush your hair, never do it when your hair is wet. Hair is weaker when wet, so just let your hair dry by itself, or just run your fingers through it as it dries. You can pat it dry with a towel, but never rub it or squeeze it.
Always go for a haircut with a more textured finish. Go for a simple crop, or a side sweep, if your hair has the right length for it. Use styling products lightly, and always wash them off from your hair as soon as possible. Having thin hair is not a curse. You just have to know how to best manage and style it.
