How To Style Thinning Hair

If you’re looking for tips on how to style thinning hair, or how to style your hair to conceal signs of hair-loss, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you are a woman or a man there are different ways that you can style your thinning hair. We have plenty of tips for both women and men.

Tips for Women with thinning hair


Layered for thinning hair

The next time you head to the salon to get your hair cut ask your stylist to give you several layers. By having layers cut into your hair you will be adding volume and depth. This volume and depth helps to conceal thinning hair that appears to be flat. While you are there, why not ask your stylist for more tips and advice on how to style your new layered hair so that you can achieve maximum volume.


Perm for thinning hair

Bring out your inner 80’s child and why not consider getting a perm? These were a huge craze and although it’s not as popular these days, getting a perm can really help you to style thinning hair. A perm is the short word for permanent wave and involves the use of chemicals to break and then reform the bonds of your hair. A perm with large curls can make your thinning hair appear thicker and give it the extra added volume it needs.

Pixie Cut

Pixie hairstyle for thinning hair

The pixie cut has been fashioned by so many celebrities and it is a popular choice. You can look bonnie and cute or edgy and fashionable. You’ll know such celebrities as Miley Cyrus, Halle Berry, Pamela Anderson, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence and Ellen DeGeneres that all have the pixie cut. This hair style is becoming more and more popular. The quirky pixie cut hair style is cut so that your hair is longer at the top of your head and then becomes shorter at the sides and the back of your head. This style is great to make thinning hair appear thicker.


Bobcut for thinning hair

If you think the pixie cut is too extreme and you’re too afraid of cutting your hair that short, then try a chin-length bob. A chin-length bob is a haircut that is either straight or layered. We would suggest getting layers added to your bob for that extra volume. This is a great solution for thinning hair. You’ll know celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Katie Holmes, Dianna Agron, Keira Knightly, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Willis that all fashion the chin-length bob.

Highlights and Lowlights

Highlights and lowlights for thinning hair

Highlights and lowlights can be done using several different methods, so consult your hair colourist on what they think the best way to do it is. Highlights can be done in both natural and non-natural colours so depending on how daring you are you can have some freedom of the colour you choose. Make sure you also discuss whether you want the colour to be permanent, semi-permanent or temporary.

If you haven’t guessed it already highlights refer to the brightening of your existing hair tones and lowlights, the opposite. Celebrities that fashion highlights include Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston. Lowlights are also popular among celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, Mila Kunis and Miranda Kerr.  Having either highlights of lowlights is a great way to draw attention away from thinning hair.


Hair updo

An updo is really flattering for your face and is great for hiding thinning hair. An updo is simply when the hair is swept up and you then secure the hair on the top or back of your head.

There are so many ways that you can style an updo so go to your nearest hair salon and ask your hair stylist what they think would suit your face shape the most. Plenty of celebrities fashion the updo. Get inspiration from the women that walk the red carpet such as Taylor Swift, Jessica Alba, Hayden Panettiere and Eva Longoria.

As you can see there are plenty of option for women to choose from to help conceal your hair thinning. There are also many options for men to choose from to help with their hair thinning.

Hair Fiber

KeraFiber for thinning hair

Where hair is thinning in patches, sometimes hair fiber product such as KeraFiber is the perfect product to fill gaps and restore an even appearance to your hair. This can be particularly effective when combined with a hair style that compliments you.

Hair fiber cannot create the look of hair where there is none, but can have dramatic results where hair is thinning. Often this will be all you’ll need to replenish the look of fullness on your hair. Hair fiber is particularly effective for braided styles where filling gaps (for example between cornrows) is desirable.

Tips for Men

Hair Fiber

Hair fiber solution

KeraFiber’s main strength is restoring the appearance of thickness where hair is thinning out, and for those with shorter hair to begin with, offers the simplest method for resolving the issue of thinning hair.

As it can be applied topically, it allows the user to retain their existing hair style, and as long as care is taken to ensure the product is applied correctly, this will offer a weatherproof solution to the problem of thinning hair. As the fibers stick to the hairs themselves, a quick shake of hair fiber powder and a blast of hair spray is all you’ll need to restore your natural look.


Tips for men: Shave hair

A popular alternative choice for men is to have their heads completely shaven. This can be a very flattering style. Having a bald head is a very safe route. If you do choose to shave your hair off completely be sure to take care of the scalp. This is a great option if you have a flattering head shape. Such celebrities that have opted for the completely shaven look include Stanley Tucci, Andre Agassi, Heston Blumenthal, Jason Statham and Mike Tyson.

Short Hair

Make your hair short

If you have long hair you may be drawing attention to your thinning hair. We recommend you cut your hair short. This is also a great option for men that do not want to shave their hair completely. We would suggest that men who do not want to shave their heads should cut their hair to approximately one inch in length.

A crew-cut hair style is a great hair style for those with thinning hair. You will have seen the crew-cut before as you may recognise such celebrities as Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper and John Mayer with the hairstyle.

Hair Gel

Put on some hair gel

You can buy styling gel from many retailers and drug stores and there are many brands and types to choose from. We would suggest that you apply a light styling gel to your hair to add volume. For the best results, apply the gel when your hair is still damp and then blow-dry your hair. If you can, we would also suggest that you blow-dry your hair with a round brush.

Textured Crop

Have a textured haircut

If you have very thick hair that is thinning on the front or on the top then you should consider a textured crop look with uneven layers. This hair cut will blend the thinning hair with your existing thick hair to lessen the effects of thin hair.
