In this day and age, it's nothing far from natural to come across a man walking down the street with a man-bun, while a woman would be rocking a bad-ass buzzcut. The world we live in keeps changing, and we with it, which gives men the task of maintaining a stylish look without facing the challenges of hair thinning. For some alpha males, hair thinning might not fall under their vocabulary but for others, it could be a daunting experience. Well, we're here to suggest a few hairstyles as well as hair products you could try to have a smart look even if that receding hairline or bald spot starts to progress.
The shape of a horseshoe is in the form of a U and for males falling short of hair, this would be a worth it kind of hairstyle to upkeep. The length of the hair should be no more than 1/4 an inch, and could be easily done at home with an electric clipper - we'd like to look at it as a Jason Statham look. Apply a dab of leave-in Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch conditioner for a soft touch to those short locks.
2) Spot in Back
Guys wearing this look turn out to pull off a Manu Ginobili look. If you've got that bald spot coming in right at the back of your hair, just run the trimmer over your hair to about 3/4 of an inch. A big pointer would be to let your barber cut your hair so it builds gradually to its full length toward the crown of your head. As Craig Whiteley - themensroom.com founder- suggests, try using Grooming Lounge Some Hair Goop and giving your hair a messy look to cover up the spot.
3) Thin All Over
Probably on the easier sides of managing, the look here is very similar to that of former American television news anchor, Matthew Todd Lauer. Cut your hair to about half an inch or less and ask the barber to cut it with shears, so he can leave a bit of length at your thinnest spot. Avoid gels and creams as they might make your hair heavy and form a clump. Instead, use a dime-size spot of texturizing cream, like American Crew Classic Ultra matte to add volume.
4) Receding hairline
Actor/comedian Will Arnett has a fairly common receding line but carries it with confidence, and as Justin Bieber might put it, it's “yummy-yummy.” To pull this one off, have your barber cut your hair to around 2 inches (ca. 5 cm). “If you wear your hair forward, ask your barber to texture your hairline in front,” says Whitely and well he's not wrong as the look does not seem far-fetched and more natural. Apply a pea-size dab of low shine putty-like Sumotech by Bumble and Bumble, and move from the back to the front to avoid clumping.
