The Best Haircuts for Men with Thin Hair

27th August 2020

Dealing with thinning hair or a receding hairline can be frustrating. However, it’s very common for men, even in their twenties, to experience this.

Luckily, there are many ways you can improve the appearance of thinning hair. Choosing a haircut which works for you and your hair can make all the difference. 

As men’s hair experts, we are here to help. Here is a guide to some of the best haircuts for thin hair.

Buzz Cut

We may be starting with an obvious one, but it’s one of the best men’s short haircuts for thin hair. This classic and easily maintainable haircut is well suited to men with hair starting to thin around the crown and hairline.

Since your hair is short and the skin is visible, the thin patches won’t stand out as much as it does with a longer haircut. 

When it comes to grooming products, we recommend using a little product like a light pomade or some hair oil to keep your scalp healthy and smelling good. 

Slick Back

A slick back haircut includes short sides, with hair slicked back on top of your head to cover the crown. 

It’s a go-to cut for many men to draw attention away from a receding hairline and make thinning hair on the crown a bit less obvious. 

To style this cut, you’ll need to invest in a good comb, some hair gel for high hold and shine or some cream for light hold and shine.


With contrasting short back and sides, an undercut or fade makes the hair on top stand out and look thicker. 

It’s a good choice for men who still have some hair at the front and is just starting to thin out. We recommend using some wax to style the hair on the top.

Short and Textured

A short and simple hair cut, this style is messy on the top and neat and tidy on the back and sides.

It may be short, but tousling the hair with a texturising product adds extra volume which gives that ‘just rolled out of bed’ look. 

Depending on your preference, you can either use a hair paste or gel to create this look. For a textured look that stays soft and can be changed throughout the day, a hair paste is a great choice. If you’d prefer a product that will lock your style into place, hair gel is the one for you.
