Having thin hair may seem like the world’s turned against you from the moment you were born – and you may wish you’d grow some extra hair every night before you fall asleep.
But – there’s no need for that, really. It’s all about how you perceive it – because thin hair can also be a blessing to live with.
Why? Well, because it is easier to style – that’s one. You won’t need to spend hours fixing a cut in front of the mirror – there’s just not enough hair for hours of prepping.
Plus, most haircuts will look good on you – or can be adapted to look good on thin hair.
And on top of all of that – thin hair is so much easier to manage! With thick hair, it’s not just about styling – it’s the special shampoos, the impossible-to-brush locks, the conditioners, the smoothing products… With thin hair, all you need is to invest in some quality volumizing shampoo and matte pomade to create volume – and your hair care routine is sorted.
So, shall we take a look at some fantastic hairstyle options for men with thin hair?
#1: Classic Pompadour for Thin Hair
If you were worried that having thin hair wouldn’t allow you to sport the most charming hairstyle – then you’ll love what’s coming next. The pompadour is ideal for thin hair, as it creates volume on the top. Use strong-hold pomade to create the look – but don’t overuse it!
#2: Spiky, Textured Cut
When you have thin hair, texture is your friend. Use it to create a more voluminous, fuller look.
#3: Spiky Cut + Fade
Another version of the spiky cut – this time with a bald fade. A great hairstyle for thin hair – as spikes create an illusion of fullness. Not greasy or gelled spikes, inspired by the 90s!
#4: Subtle Pompadour + Heavy Beard
If your hair is thin but your beard game is strong – then flaunt it! Having a thick, heavy beard compensates for the lack of volume and thickness on your head.
#5: Curly Hair + Faded Sides
Having thin, curly hair is an absolute blessing – because it’s easier to style than thick, curly hair – but the fact that it’s thin isn’t too obvious.
#6: Simple and Short Cut
This simple and short cut is very charming – and ideal for someone whose hair isn’t their strongest side.
#7: Voluminous Pomp
Having thin hair doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve the volume! You certainly can – all you need is some determination, and a powerful hair dryer.
#8: Short Combover
A particularly easy style to look after, a short and sweet combover is the perfect choice for a man with thin hair.
#9: Super Spikes
If you’d rather leave your hair longer, then this medium-length spiky haircut is a fantastic option. Create the style with some strong-hold matte pomade. The short sides allow for the top to claim all of the attention!
#10: Textured Curls + Bald Fade
For a man with curly hair, this cut is pretty ideal. The bald fade allows for the top to be the most important detail of the cut – and ensures that the look isn’t too overwhelming. We know how “big” curly hair can be…
#11: Smooth and Short Quiff
Another great option for someone who doesn’t have thick locks. The quiff hairstyle allows for the volume to be created at the front – this way nicely hiding the fact that the hair is thin.
#12: Fohawk for Thin Hair
The “too cool for school fohawk” is also a great hairstyle for someone whose hair is on the thin side. You can create artificial volume with some strong-hold pomade – and the fact that the hair is thin will make it easier to manage.
#13: Messy Spikes
If your hair is wavy, then think about this as a hairstyle option. The spikes will be easy to achieve in the morning – while the mid fade will make normally unruly hair easier to manage.
#14: Spiky Hair + Sharp Undercut
If you’d like to create even more of an impression with your haircut – then how about opting for a sharp undercut instead of a fade? The contrast is pretty bold!
#15: Sharp Fringe
A nice and trendy hairstyle that’ll work for a man with thin hair. Go for a bald fade if you’re someone who likes to stand out – or a taper cut if you’d like to keep things a bit more subtle.
#16: Very Short Crop
If having longer hair stresses you out, then how about this neat and tidy short crop? An ideal hairstyle for thin hair – and for a man who would rather be out the door than styling his hair!
#17: Smooth and Sleek
For a man who has medium-length smooth and sleek hair, this is the ideal cut. A quirky shaved detail on the side makes things even more interesting!
#18: Modern Slick Back
Another ideal cut for someone who has pretty thin, sleek hair. A slick back will be easy to achieve – and it looks very elegant!
#19: Curly Crop + Strong Beard
Bald sides and curly hair on top make the perfect match. Bald fade creates a neater, tidier look for someone who has unruly curly hair. Plus – since the sides are shaved, you can get away with a bushy beard!
#20: Combover + High Fade
A lovely combover with a high, contrasting fade. The perfect choice for a man who doesn’t have thick hair – but likes looking like he does!
