With age, men’s hair will begin to thin out. Over 85% of men will experience some major hair thinning by the time they reach 50. Fortunately, there are plenty of men’s hairstyles out there that look great with thinner hair.
No matter if your hair is naturally fine or if your hair is thinning out with age, all it takes is the right haircut and styling products. The right haircut can make any flat thin strains of hair appear thicker and fuller.
If you, like many others out there, are worried about how to style your thinning hair, you have come to the right place. Our salon experts at Jaxson Maximus have put together this fantastic guide on the best men’s hairstyles for thin hair.
HOW TO STYLE THINNER HAIR
If you are someone who has thinner hair, we would strongly recommend keeping your hair length on the shorter side. Longer hair will bring more attention to your thinning hair or receding hairline because of such a strong contrast. Instead, we would recommend sticking to hairstyles such as the undercut, side part, high fade, and more listed below.

MEN'S HAIRSTYLES FOR THIN HAIR
THE COMB OVER
Whether you are going out for a night on the town or to the office, the comb-over is a perfectly stylish look for men with thin hair. To get the look, create a side part in your hair and comb it over to your preference. Add a small amount of Jaxson Maximus gel to keep your hair in place all day long.
COMB OVER WITH A FADE
The comb over combined with a fade is an excellent choice for those with fine hair. The sharp contrast between the shorter sides and having more volume on top will help your hair appear thicker and fuller.
TEXTURED CROP WITH TAPERED SIDES
The textured crop is perfect for men that are thinning out on various parts of their scalp. With a textured crop, you can easily style your hair to hide those thinning spots. With the textured crop, the longer strands will look heavier, adding texture and a bit of volume to your hair.
To style, use the Jaxson Maximus styling wax. Work a small amount of the wax from the roots to the ends of your hair to create texture and movement.
Slicking your hair back can be an excellent way to make your hair appear denser. By pushing all of your hair in one direction, you are drawing more attention to the fuller areas of your hair. Just be careful that you do not go overboard on the amount of product that you use.
To get the slick back look, apply a dime-size amount of Jaxson Maximus gel or styling foam to your hands and run it through your hair from top to front until you get the desired smoothness. Cover any thinning or balding areas by pushing your hair over the areas with a comb or your fingers.
TEXTURED SIDE PART
The reason why most people dislike the look of thinner hair is that it lies so flat on the head. A textured side part can be a great option to add a little lift and volume to the hair. This hairstyle is both relaxed but sophisticated and can easily transition from the boardroom to a night out.
To style the textured side part, use a small amount of our Jaxson Maximus pompadour pomade. This will create an effortless look, with texture and shine, while also helping to hide any thinning areas.
A FULL BEARD
If you are starting to thin out in different sports on your scalp, the best thing you can do for your hair is to cut it shorter on top and balance it out with a beard on the bottom. A short haircut will mask the appearance of sparse hair strands. If you were to keep your hair longer, you risk drawing attention right to the thinning spots on your head.
A great addition to a shorter haircut is a beard. This will create a sharp contrast between your shorter hair on top and longer at the bottom. It is excellent for creating a well-balanced look.
Just because you have thinner hair does not mean you should be scared to try out the pompadour. One of the most classic hairstyles out there, the pompadour, is great for creating the illusion of volume and fullness.
To style on thinner hair, apply a liberal amount of our Jaxson Maximus styling foam starting at the roots to the ends of your hair. For a dramatic effect, use a small round brush and blow dryer to create lift and movement in your hair. Finish off your look with our Jaxson Maximus Finishing Hair Spray to keep your hair in place all day long. Don’t go overboard on the amount of product you put in your hair. A small amount goes a long way.
SOFT AND SPIKY
Soft spikes are perfect for creating the look of volume and fullness. The soft spike hairstyle is great for those that have super flat hair or are thinning out in various areas on the scalp.
Another great hairstyle for men with thinner hair is the crewcut. This hairstyle is perfect for those that want a low-maintenance haircut and are starting to see thinning happening towards the top of their hair. Both modern and stylish, the contrast of the shorter shaved side and longer hair on top creates the perfect balance. The small amount of texture in the hair helps to create a natural lift to the hair. Ideal for those who are experiencing a receding hairline.
The great thing about the crewcut hairstyle is that it requires very little styling products, towel dry, and you are good to go. To keep your hair looking healthy and luscious, we recommend washing your hair with our Jaxson Maximus shampoo and conditioner.
