Hairstyles for Men with Receding Hairlines

When we start speaking about Hairstyles for Men with Receding Hairlines, there is no denying the fact that there are limited hairstyle options for men with receding hairlines, but there are some hairstyles that are just right for a receding hairline.  Receding hairlines are just something that many men are going to have to deal with. There are things that can be done to create hair where none existed before, such as herbs and creams, shampoos, a toupee or even surgery. For many men, though, none of these are really an option, or they just don’t want to fight getting older that badly.

They turn to hairstyles for men with receding hairlines. But firstly, they need to understand that a hairstyle is not supposed to camouflage a receding hairstyle, but rather work around it and still make a person look manly and handsome. Here are some ideas which is the best hairstyles for men with receding hairlines :


One of the best hairstyle for men with receding hairlines is the buzz cut. It is also called the induction haircut. For a man with a receding hairline, it is best to get a classic buzz cut where the hair is cut with a clipper by removing the comb guard. The hair on the sides and the top should be cut the same length all over without going short where the scalp is visible. It is a very low maintenance haircut and no styling products are necessary to set this style.
With a close-cropped style, the individual has his hair cut in one very short length all over. In order to pull this hairstyle off, the individual has to still have hair on top of his head; as with the messy style discussed above, the hairline ideally needs to reach to at least the middle of the scalp for this haircut.

In order to pull this hairstyle off, the individual has to still have hair on top of his head; as with the messy style discussed above, the hairline ideally needs to reach to at least the middle of the scalp for this haircut. This style is not quite the same thing as a complete shaving off of the hair; the hair remains, though there is often not enough of it to style, per se. Thus, the cut ends up being the style, in and of itself. On a larger man, the close-cropped style can look tough. On a slender man, the cut can look cutting-edge and artsy. This style is a perfect compromise for the man who doesn’t feel like hiding his receding hairline but doesn’t feel comfortable going completely bare.


This one’s for the brave. If a hairline has receded to the point of rendering the messy cover-up style and the close-cropped style impossible, going bare is probably the best option. It involves completely shaving off the hair on the back and sides of the head, down to the scalp. Besides being able to save money by shaving off the hair at home with an electric razor, the person who opts for this choice also manages to avoid paying for and dealing with hair-care products.


If you really are feeling adventurous or daring, give yourself a quick shave on the sides, and let a single block of hair stand up down the middle of your head. Don’t attempt this hairstyle if you work in a business or professional environment.


Some guys can pull off the slicked back hair with the receding hairline. This is especially viable if you have dark hair.


Another good hairstyles for men with receding hairlines is the Caesar haircut. In this haircut the hair on the crown is layered to around a length of 1 ½ – 2 inches. The hair at the front is cut into bangs that are short and even all around. The short bangs are then combed forward to fall over the forehead. To style this kind of haircut, a bit of styling gel should be applied while the hair is still damp and then hair at the front should be combed forward. Too much styling products can give the hairstyle a very stiff and artificial look, so care should be taken not to overdo the styling gel.

Take a look some example below!


When trying to work with a receding hairline, first gauge where and how much of the hairline is receding. If the hairline is barely receding, small shifts in the hairstyle, such as the addition of bangs or layers, will do the trick. If the hairline is extremely far back on the head, going with bangs or a shaggy look may end up making you look less fashionable and more like a clown. Another option with which to offset a receding hairline (or very short hair, or an entirely bald head) is to grow some facial hair, such as a beard, mustache or goatee.


Just as there are a number of fashionable ways to work with a receding hairline, there are a number of styles that just don’t work. Keeping your long ponytail or tresses on the sides and back while the top of you scalp shines in the sun usually doesn’t cut it. Toupees may have advanced dramatically, but they seldom appear real, and often look more like a bathroom rug. The comb-over, in which a lengthy swath of hair is combed over the bald spot, also ends up often looking unnatural and unfashionable.

Home Remedies for Receding Hairline

The home remedies for receding hairline are rather simple and will not burn a hole in your pocket either.

Protein Rich Food

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin. If the diet does not constitute sufficient quantities of protein, it may lead to hair loss and a receding hairline. Hence, it is important to include healthy proteins in the diet. The best proteins to be consumed are lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and milk and milk products, among other things.


I have mentioned previously that deficiency of nutrients is responsible for receding hairline. Therefore, along with proteins, the diet also should be rich in vitamin B6 and vitamin E. Both these vitamins help in reversing the effect of receding hair loss. Along with vitamin B6 and vitamin E, it is also important to ensure your diet is rich in folic acid. Deficiency of folic acid is among the most common cause of receding hairline. It is best to stick to natural sources of these nutrients as opposed to the supplements.

Olive Oil

One of the famous home remedies to arrest hair fall is the use of olive oil. Massage the scalp and hair gently with olive twice to thrice a week at night. Leave the olive oil on the hair overnight and wash it off with a gentle shampoo the next day in the morning. When you are massaging the scalp, make sure you use a circular motion and use your fingertips for the same.


An age-old remedy for hair problems is the use of coconut. There are different ways that one can use coconut to tackle a receding hairline problem. The easiest remedy is to use coconut oil to massage the scalp and hair. Warm the oil a little and massage the scalp with it using a circular fingertip motion. The other remedy is to extract coconut milk and apply it all over the scalp and especially over the problem area. Leave it for sometime before you wash it off.
