What Haircut Should A Bald Man Get?


Balding, receding hairlines, thinning hair. These are some of the hair-related problems that have plagued men for many years. Whether you’re in your twenties, entering your golden years or somewhere in between and you’re facing this challenge, there is good news. You can choose from a variety of hairstyles that can help enhance the hair you already have while reducing the visibility of the baldness or receding hairline. So, what are some of the best hairstyles for a receding hairline? Take a look.

Best hairstyles for thinning hairlines

You have several options to choose from if you want a low maintenance hairstyle when your hair is starting to go patchy. Here are some of them:

Buzz cut

The buzz cut is a hairstyle that is created using an electric shaver. It means your hair is cut short, just a bit less than an inch, all around. You have one length of hair all along your head. Luckily, the buzz cut is low maintenance but for receding or thinning hairlines, it can also give the appearance of an even amount of hair on your head. It’s certainly worth trying. 

High and tight

A military-inspired haircut, this is a masculine look and is functional as well as easy to maintain. With this style, what you can expect is cropped sides that are faded and quite short in length while the crown has more length and volume. This can help you reduce the visibility of balding or receding hair. It’s also a great way of defining your face’s features. 

Crew cut

This cut is very adept at drawing attention away from your widow’s peak and onto your face. With it, you will retain more hair length at the crown, which you can style as side parts, pompadours or other versatile options. 

Men who have some length and volume may opt for the following options:


The taper involves cutting the hair quite short at the sides, fading it downwards towards the neck resulting in bare skin at the bottom. The crown, on the other hand, has more length, which can be styled into a pompadour. This is another effective way of drawing attention away from a receding hairline. 

Skin fades with a pompadour or slicked back

This is a more modern look that can either be applied to short or longer hair. With short hair, you will have shaved sides and tapered length, which draws attention to the crown where the hair is left longer. A high skin fade is a similar look you can opt for and it gives you a great contrast. The top can be styled into a pompadour or be slicked back entirely using certain hair products to keep the hair in place. 

Comb over parting with a widow’s peak

Contrary to popular belief, the comb over parting with a widow’s peak visible on one side of the face can be another comely style that you can experiment with. The receding hairline is actually incorporated into the style and it uses the lowest point in the hair’s natural parting. As a result, the illusion is created that the hair is thicker, weightier and has more volume. When opting for this style, consider having a bit more length at the front so that you have more options when it comes to styling.
