11 Hairstyles for Men with Thin Hair

Most men will see their hair thinning with time. But that does not mean that your hairstyling game has to fall short of perfection. Here, we list some of the best short and long hairstyles for men with thin hair.

Some Short Hairstyles

The Spike

This is great for men who have thin hair on the crown. The sides are faded, and a bit of volume are kept on the top to take away the attention from the crown.

Faded Upsweep

A toned down version of the slicked back, this hairstyle is done with a light undercut on the sides, while, the thinning hair is slightly cropped and brushed back.

Short Mohawk

If Mohawk is your deal, then go for the cool Mohawk with the high side fade leaving about an inch cover on the top. Accentuate this hairstyle with a neatly kept beard.

High and Tight

In a high and tight, the faded sides are gradually blended with the top. The volume on the top depends on your hair density. It is much compact and works well for older men with thinning hair.

Slicked Fading Pompadour

The pompadour is a hairstyle that works for men with receding hairlines which make their foreheads appear big. The sides have to be faded like an undercut, while the pompadour can look good with just a little volume on top.

Half Bald Pompadour

Try this if you’re hugely thinning on the sides because this hairstyle makes your sides almost bald so it acts as a good cover up. Moreover, the pompadour look leaves sufficient volume which can be styled with pomade or mousse.

Slicked Back Fade

As they say, the classic never goes out of fashion. The slicked back is good for men with thin straight hair because you can play with the volume on top. Since the undercut runs through the sides, it does not draw attention to the balding part.

Few Long Hairstyles

The Mop Top

Not a lot of length is required, but it gives the illusion of a crazy volume. It is very easy to play around with this hairstyle.

The Barista

It is actually a slicked back with a mid rise undercut. The sides are not completely trimmed away, just enough to accentuate the top look.

Brushed Back

One of the best hairstyles for men with long but thin hair is to go for the classic brushed back. Remember to keep the strands in the front of your head longer, so that you can fairly cover your head just like Bradley Cooper has done!

You need a good barber for this because the hair is shaved into a V-shape and the braid is done from the bottom and tied into a bun. It is not only cool and funky but also hides your thinning problem.
