Men’s Haircuts for Thinning Hair


Thinning hair can rock a man’s confidence, but the truth is most men will face the challenge of hair loss at some point in their lives. There is such thing as growing old with grace, so don’t panic. Rock a hairstyle that works for thinning hair, and you will find ways to camouflage or embrace your new look.

Razor Shave

A razor shave may seem like an aggressive answer for your new style, but it gives you a clean and distinguished look while maintaining a masculine style. The razor shave is a great solution, especially if you have blad spots or patchy hair.

Buzz Cut

Not quite ready for that razor shave? Consider a buzz cut. This simple haircut is perfect for hair beginning to thin around the crown and hairline. The Buzz Cut minimizes the appearance of a receding hairline by drawing the focus to your face.

Crew Cut

A variation on his brother the buzz cut, the crew cut is a popular cut for men of all ages. Similar to the buzz cut, it draws attention to your face and away from your receding hairline, but it keeps a bit more hair length on top.

High and Tight

The military-inspired haircut can disguise those balding and thinning spots as well. With a high and tight, the cut is cropped and faded on the sides with a longer patch on the top. The sides can be taken very high and tight, perhaps even to the skin, called a skin fade. When done correctly, this cut can blend the bald spots seamlessly into the style.

Skin Fade with Short Hair

This edgy cut gives you more control over styling and disguises your receding hairline. The sides are shaved very close to the skin, with slightly longer hair on top. This cut makes you look younger, drawing attention away from your hairline to the longer hair on top of your head.

Butch Cut

Another option that is super low maintenance is the butch cut. The hair is generally cut, all the same length, between ¼ and ¾ inches long, and follows the contour of the head. The butch cut is a masculine and clean-cut style option.

Ivy League

Some classic haircuts can still work on men with thinning hair. The ivy league is a good fit for those who still have some volume on the top. The sides are cut shorter, but quite a bit of hair remains on top for styling.
