Okay, so you go bald. Admitting it is the first step in overcoming it. Now we move on to dealing with loss and finding the best way to look good as you do. As your hairline retreats on the scalp, you have the choice. You can either clutch desperate on your youth and pretend you still have a full head of hair, or you could handle it.
Choosing the right hairstyle for receding hairline is not a matter of trying to hide what’s happening there. It’s a case of finding the cut that celebrates your hair and lets you look your best. Whether it’s a cut that uses your widow’s peak as the centerpiece for your haircut or just a razor to your head, it sure is at least one style that works for you.
1. Clean shave
The ultimate way to look for a receding hairline in the eye and say ‘no’ is the clean shave. It’s a look that does not work for everyone, and unfortunately, you’ll probably only find out whether or not you can pull it off after you’ve made the leap. But as long as the shape of the head complements your face and you wear the bald face with confidence, this is a look that you just might be able to own. The clean shave works best with a full beard to bring a sense of balance to your otherwise hairless head.
2. Buzz cut haircut
A slightly longer and less brutal than the clean shave, the buzz is cut. It is the quintessential military-inspired hairstyle that is both sympathetically thinning hair and easy to take care of. The buzz cut also offers the advantage of making your facial appearance, more defined. Through other drawing, the eyes from the hairline down to your forehead line, your face immediately appears more chiseled. Choose bevelled sides for a modern take on the traditional buzz cut.
3. Faux-Hawk haircut
It’s a style that ebbs and flows in popularity, but the faux hawk is a useful haircut for the receding gentleman. By paying attention to the middle of the hairline (and away from the temples) the faux hawk uses a receding hairline to its advantage. Do not let the name set you off, the faux hawk is still a short, understated cut.
4. Comb over hairstyle
We’re not talking about a Prince Charles or, God forbid, Donald Trump haircut here. The comb over hairstyle is a very popular style for men whether bald or not. The comb over which works well for bald-brothers through the use of receding hairline as the deepest point in your hair is a natural part of the line. This gives an artificial feeling of weight to your hair.
5. Short Slicked Back Hairstyle
In a similar way as the comb over, the short-combed-back hairstyle is a clean and versatile look for men with receding hairlines. Keep the cut-short, you avoid putting too much weight on the top of the hair, the sides and attention to the hairline.
6. Regulation Cut Haircut
Another haircut, his inspiration from the military, draws you with more length. The prescription cut is a precise idea of a longer haired military cut. Combed with a defined part, the regulation employs more to achieve scissor-cut sides, a classic style. Similar to alternative versions of the comb over, this style uses the hairline as a function of the hair.
7. More hairstyle
If your hair is still quite thick, but only back, you may be able to try a longer style. A longer hairstyle has the advantage of hiding the area above the temples, which most likely show early signs of receding hairlines. An irrepressible option, not every person can (and should) try to cut that longer. Although having the right sense of style, cut longer can shave years off of your looks.
8. Short Messy hairstyle
For many gentlemen, seeing more is not a viable option. That being said, keeping your hair short and tidy can not be attractive to the renegade in you. A short, textured hairstyle gives you the versatile option of a controlled length that can be displayed messy. Have your hairdresser blow off, exaggerate, slightly over the length of your hairline, both in volume and in the textured style.
9. Short high-fade haircut
A distinctive style for a receding hairline is a short high-fade haircut. By trimming the sides and rejuvenating the length from bottom to top, you can determine how your hairline is perceived. A higher fade will take the attention away from receding hairline and towards your longer hair at the top. The style is best suited for men with a hairline in the early stages of receding.
