Thinning or graying hair and bald patches are common issues mature men deal with; they must be taken into consideration before getting a haircut. Going for a hairstyle that suits your features will result in you looking and feeling good. If you need some inspiration, here are some hairstyle ideas and suggestions for your perusal.
The majority of mature men have short and lightly layered hair. Hair length can vary, but the hairline is another important element. Common hairlines include:
- Tapered Hairline
A tapered cut delivers a more rounded look that outlines the shape of your neck. If you are heavyset or have a wider and thicker neck, this is an excellent option. In addition, if you prefer to wait a bit longer between trims, the tapered cut holds its shape well. A straightener can also be used for a smoother look.
- Blocked Hairline
A blocked hairline is squared and suits those with thin necks. Even if you have a thicker neck, this might add even more width to the back of your hair. Styling is easy; dab your preferred hair product on your fingers and run them through damp hair, fashioning it into your desired style. If you want more grip, blow-dry, and spritz with hair spray.
- High and Tight
Close shaven on the sides with a little hair on the top – this is a clean and manageable hairstyle.
Haircuts for Thinning Hair
Male pattern baldness can typically be found on the top, back, or front of the head. On one hand, those who have only small amounts of thinning in the back can grow out the top part of their hair a little longer for effective coverage. This is not to be confused with the comb-over, which most men nowadays try to avoid. On the other hand, frontal baldness necessitates a completely different style. However, if the area is very large, there is no point in trying to hide it. It may be easier to go super short with a buzz cut and just let the bald spot show. It won’t be as noticeable as you think.
Spotting a full head of thick hair? You might want to try experimenting with something a bit wilder and funkier. If kept short, spiked hair can be a lot of fun, and work best in a layered style. Hair gel can also help you create a spiked style. You can even remove the gel and comb your hair back before attending more serious or formal occasions. When kept tidy, long hair may look extremely appealing on an older man. If you wish to wear a ponytail, use quality hair bands to avoid hair breakage and styling products suited towards your hair type. If you have thinning hair on top, avoid slicking it back as this will just make the thinning more visible.
