For most men, hair loss is genetic and usually starts at the temples. When it does, it creates a V-shaped point known as the widow’s peak. This is very tricky to hide and may thus make some men self-conscious about their hair. Luckily, there are some haircuts that can mask this problem and make your hair look thicker. Here are the four best hairstyles for a receding hairline.
The undercut is one of the most popular hairstyles for a receding hairline. Your barber will trim the hair on the sides of your head, as well as the back. In doing so, they will highlight the hair you have on the top of your head, giving it a fuller look.
2. Short Sides and Back
This style is much like the undercut only not as severe. You get to keep short hair on the sides and the back, as well as everything you have on the top of your head. Think of it as the undercut three weeks after you’ve been to your stylist.
3. Layered Cut
If you still have all your hair intact, apart from the dreaded widow’s peak, you can opt for a more layered look. The barber will leave the hair on the top of your head while giving the back and the sides a gradual cut.
4. Buzz Cut
If you don’t have a lot of hair to work with, you can always get a buzz cut. You barber will then cut your hair very short using an electric razor. They can also adjust the length according to your preferences. For a more confident look, you can also grow your beard to match the length of your hair.
These hairstyles for a receding hairline are great for men with a highly visible widow’s peak. Of course, they won’t solve your hair loss problems. But they can at least mask them for a short period between two haircuts.
