Slicked Back Hairstyle (With Undercut)

You can call it a mature, evolved variation of the Mohawk. The slicked back style with an undercut is awesome for thinning hair. Many men draw attention away from thinning hair on the top by slicking back the hair which adds a slight lift at the roots.

TO DO SO, you’ll have to grow the front of your hair long enough so that when you slick your hair back, it’ll mask the bald spot. You should use styling products like Powermade, which will give your hair volume, the perfect amount of shine and hold the slicked hair in place.

This cut suits almost every hair type, but works particularly well with finer hair!
If you have curly hair, you will need to apply more products. Get the full guide on the Slick Backs right here!

Short and Spiked Haircut

Another perfect haircut solution if you have thinning hair, is SHORT and SPIKED! 

Draw attention away from thinning hair, by adding body and texture on top. Brush your hair up and away from the forehead, and hold in place with styling products.

If you want a light to medium hold and glossy look GO FOR a pomade. Otherwise, use a clay like Dynamite Clay for a more matte and natural finish. Yet again, the key is to use styling products like a wax or a pomade to increase the volume of your hair.

Ask your hairstylist to cut your hair on the top and give it an edgy and spiky look. This cut creates space between your locks and therefore the attention will only be where your hair has been spiked.

Here is how to get a casual cool short spiky haircut.

Messy Side-Parted Hair

Another option is to GO with a messy side part!

This style is typically for those with long hair that is starting to thin out.

The style is simple; a medium length cut with a deep side part, complemented by tapered sideburns, and the frontal section of the hair is swept up and away from the face. Fetch a small amount of strong hold styling product like pomade (Powermade), clay (Dynamite Clay) or wax (Gold Digger or Silver Fox). 

It will definitely make you feel and look younger!

The Crop Haircut (Close Cut With Top Texture)

If your thinning hair is not bad enough to pull off a buzz cut, getting a close cut with top texture is a nice choice. Like George Clooney, this look is AWESOME when the top of the hair is pushed forward into a small point at the front.

This cut can be either smart and formal for work or casual and messy for an everyday look or on the weekend. It’s an easy to style and a low maintenance haircut.

The Buzz Cut

If you have the face shape for a buzz cut, this cut is a pretty COOL and sexy solution for thinning hair!

This style is a GRAND choice because it’s TRENDY and draws attention away from your receding hairline. You can pull off this look with a nicely shaped beard and then look completely handsome.

This style is also extremely easy to maintain and can be styled without any products. But be aware, if you have a dry scalp, it’s good to use a moisturizer or hair oil on your skin to keep it conditioned.

Clean-Shaven (The Ultimate Solution)

While this haircut may be the ultimate solution for most men, a clean-shaven head can be REALLY handsome.  If your hairline is just too obvious and you have the face shape to pull this one off, it can give you some badass edge and show the world that you really don’t care!

No matter what, always remember don’t try to cover it up or making a comb-over. DEAL WITH IT, instead of working against it!
