10 Best Men’s Hairstyles for Thin Hair

When it comes to men’s hairstyles for thin hair, there are plenty of options. From buzzcuts to quiffs, there’s a style that can help you make the most of what you’ve got. Here are some of the best men’s hairstyles for thin hair:

popular men's hairstyles for thin hair: the buzz cut

1. The Buzzcut

This classic cut is perfect for men with thinning hair. The hair is short all over, making it look fuller and thicker.

2. The Fringe

Adding a fringe to your hairstyle can make it look thicker and fuller by bringing more hair to the front. Plus, bangs can hide a receding hairline. Ask your stylist to add texture to the fringe to give it more body.

3. The Mop Top

If you have longer hair, the mop top can be a great option. The hair is left longer on top and styled forward, creating a messy, textured look. Messy volume can make mildly thinning hair look thicker. Make sure to wash and style hair with products that promote volume.

4. The Slick Back

A classic look that can work well for thinning hair, the slick back involves combing the hair back and using a bit of product to hold it in place. Think of it as a combover that goes straight back. This haircut for thin hair is ideal for men who have hair loss at the crown, as you can slick the hair back in such a way as to disguise this type of hair loss.

5. The Pompadour

This iconic style involves styling the hair up and back, creating a voluminous look that can help conceal thinning hair. Like the slick back, this hairstyle is great for disguising hair loss at the crown.

6. The Quiff

Similar to the pompadour, the quiff involves styling the hair up and back. However, the hair at the front is styled forward, creating a more textured look.

7. Skin Fade

This style involves shaving the sides close to the scalp and gradually fading the length up towards the top. This men’s hairstyle for thin hair works for all hair types. If you have straight or wavy hair, add more texture by styling it with clay to make it look thicker and fuller.

8. The Undercut (Disconnected Sides)

This style involves leaving the hair longer on top and shaving the sides close to the scalp. The contrast between the longer top and shorter sides creates the illusion of fuller hair.

9. The Crew Cut

Like the disconnected sides haircut, the crew cut is shorter on the sides and longer on the top. The most significant difference is that the crew cut has connected sides. This classic and timeless haircut works well in professional settings. Use a pomade to comb hair into place or a styling clay for a casual, mussed look.

10. Faux Hawk

This edgy style involves leaving a strip of longer hair down the center of the head and shorter (though not shaved) sides. The longer hair on top is then styled with messy texture, creating the appearance of thicker hair. This hairstyle is great for disguising a receding hairline.

How to Style Thin Hair to Make It Look Fuller

Besides choosing one of the best men’s hairstyles for thinning hair, you can also style your hair with Toppik Hair Building Fibers to make it look thicker instantly. Toppik Fibers are made of natural keratin protein, the same protein found in human hair. They come in different shades that you can match to any hair color, and they cling to existing hair to instantly create the appearance of fuller, thicker hair.

Toppik Hair Building Fibers bind to the existing hair strands with an electrostatic charge. As a result, the fibers cling to the hair, creating the illusion of thicker hair. The product is easy to apply and is suitable for all hair types.

To style your hair with Toppik Hair Building Fibers, first, make sure your hair is dry. Shake the fibers over your hair, focusing on the areas where your hair is thinnest. You can also use the Spray Applicator and Hairline Optimizer for a more precise application. Use your fingers or a brush to distribute the fibers evenly. Then, use a comb or brush to style your hair as desired. Finish with a mist of FiberHold Spray, which adds shine and promotes the bond between the Fibers and your hair. 

Toppik Hair Building Fibers are resistant to wind, rain, and sweat, so your style should hold up throughout the day. Overall, Toppik Hair Building Fibers is an excellent solution for men with thinning hair who want to create the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. 

Stimulate Hair Growth with Scalp Massage

Massaging your scalp may promote hair growth by increasing blood flow, which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. Here are some tips for scalp massage to help promote healthy hair growth:

  1. Use your fingertips, not your fingernails, to gently massage your scalp. Scratching your scalp with your nails can damage your hair follicles.
  2. Use circular motions to massage your scalp, starting at the front of your head and moving toward the back.
  3. Apply light to moderate pressure while massaging your scalp, but don’t press too hard. You don’t want to cause any pain or discomfort.
  4. Take your time and massage your scalp for at least five minutes. The longer you massage, the more blood flow you’ll stimulate to your hair follicles.
  5. Use a natural oil, such as coconut oil, olive oil, or jojoba oil, to help lubricate your scalp and make it easier to massage.
  6. You can also use a scalp massage tool to help you massage your scalp more efficiently and effectively.
  7. Massage your scalp daily or at least a few times weekly for the best results. Consistency is key when it comes to promoting healthy hair growth.

By following these tips, you can help stimulate blood flow to your hair follicles, improving hair growth and overall health.

There are plenty of men’s hairstyles for thin hair to choose from. By picking a flattering haircut and using styling products like Toppik Hair Building Fibers, you can create the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Additionally, using scalp massage can help to promote healthy hair growth and improve the overall health of your scalp and hair. Finally, with a little effort and attention, you can look and feel your best with a fresh, modern haircut.

    Any chance you will bring back the blond hair thickener spray? If you did a “special order” only promo for a limited time I bet you would have many people like me (male, blond) order 4-6 just so we have a supply.

    1. Hi Jerry – Thank you for your feedback! At this time we don’t have plans to bring back the blonde Colored Hair Thickener, but we are releasing a new product next year that is similar and will be available in a blonde color ; ) Make sure to sign up for our VIP list to be the first to hear about it! https://www.toppik.com/offers/

    1. Hi John – We normally suggest keeping your Hair Fibers stored in a cool place. If you do leave them in the bathroom, make sure the cap is on the Hair Fibers bottle so that no steam gets into the Hair Fibers. Are you having trouble getting the Hair Fibers out of the bottle?
