For overall thinning, Esquire recommends short layers and combing the hair forward for mens' hair. Other possibilities for thinning hair include the crew cut, a short silhouette or a subtle spiked haircut.Continue Reading
The crew cut features short clipper-cut hair over most of the head, with a small amount of hair left toward the front. It is easy to style by towel drying and then using a blow dryer to create lift for the longer hair in front. A firm styling gel ensures the front hair stays tall.
If the hair is dark, the short silhouette or clipper cut over all the head, works well. The barber cuts the hair with a fade from top to bottom, with the sides extremely close. The cut requires little care, but adding vitamin-enriched styling gel helps it look thicker.
The subtle spike involves cutting the hair to a uniform 1-inch length. It is a longer version of the buzz cut but with the hair cut short enough that it doesn't emphasize its thinning nature. Thickening shampoo helps to thicken the individual strands. Blow drying and using a lightweight product creates the subtle spikes that help conceal the beginning of male pattern baldness.Learn more about Hairstyles
