WiseBarber’s Recommended Haircuts for Men with Receding Hairline
Generally, a receding hairline is considered a sign of aging in men. However, it may occur prematurely in some men because of a couple of factors. Genetics, traction alopecia, and a poor hair care routine are some of the causes of a receding hairline.
A receding hairline could be due to an underlying health issue. So, it wouldn’t hurt to consult with a dermatologist to find the root cause of the problem.
However, if your receding hairline stems from natural causes, you could tone it down with the right hairstyles. I happen to have compiled a list of hairstyles that have my seal of approval. They include;
1. The Crew Cut
The crew cut is a haircut that is commonly associated with the military. With this style, the hair on the sides and back are tapered close to the head in a fade. Meanwhile, some length is maintained on the top of the head.
The fade at the sides could help tone down the outline of your receding hairline. Also, you could even style the hair to make it conceal your hairline. For examples and inspiration, you can take a quick look at WiseBarber’s Crew Cut Hairstyle guide.
2. The Buzz Cut
With this haircut, you have an equal length of short hair all over your head. That makes your hairline barely visible, especially if you don’t have dark hair. Plus, the hairstyle is so simple that you could legit do it yourself. It’s also very low-maintenance.
3. The Undercut
An undercut haircut features very short hair on the sides and the back of the head. Meanwhile, the hair on top of the head is kept significantly longer.
The combination draws attention to the long hair on top of your head. Also, you can style the hair on the top to cover your temples. Hence, your receding hairline becomes a background prop. Problem solved!
4. The Mop Top
Here is a hairstyle that does not bother working with your hairline. It simply covers it up. The mop top hairstyle is characterized by medium-length hair on the top of the head. Then the hair at the sides and the back of the head is layered to get shorter as you go down gradually.
To execute this style, you need to grow out your hair if it’s short. Also, it’s a style that is pretty common amongst youngsters. If you don’t mind looking like a young Justin Bieber, then be my guest.
5. A Shaved Head
Many say that a shaved head gives off an air of masculinity and authority. That is true, especially when you have the body to match as Dwayne Johnson does.
So you might be tempted to think that this haircut is low-maintenance. Unfortunately, it does require you to shave your head three or four times a week. However, that depends on how fast your hair grows.
You also have to worry about the consequences of shaving frequently. Plus, the issue of the sun potentially damaging the exposed follicles on your head and all that. Anyway, apart from all that, I believe this haircut is the next best thing that could happen to your hairline after the mop top.
Having a receding hairline is not the end of the world. You can still be a total ladies’ man regardless. Just find a hairstyle that works for you and make the most of it.
Lastly, make sure to incorporate good habits into your hair care routine. Learn how to wash your hair correctly and everything that comes after that. These seemingly little things can improve the overall health of your hair.
