How to Hide a Receding Hairline

Updated on July 10, 2013

It’s easy to hide your receding hairline

A receding hairline in men is one of the early indicators of male pattern baldness. This problem is more common in men than in women with 1 in every 3 men getting it. While hair loss is itself frustrating, but loss of hair from temples and lateral sides of the forehead exposes bald spots which is just plain ugly.

There are several ways to tackle hair loss in men through hair replacement therapy, hair tattooing or other medical treatments. However, if you don’t want to try out these treatments because you’re comfortable with your thinning hair, you can at least minimize the appearance of your receding hairline which is fairly easy.

1. Wear a hat

Wearing a hat or cap is a smart trick to mask your receding hairline. You can buy a pair of hats for different occasions and wear them to stand out from the crowd in style!

2. Shave your head

If you’re comfortable with a bald head, shaving off your hair is the best option. Several men (and few women) opt for a total head shave because it doesn’t indicate you’re losing hair in the first place. With no hair on top, you save yourself a lot of time that would have otherwise been spent of hair-care and regular maintenance.

3. Get a new haircut

If you’re experiencing the early stage of hair thinning, getting a new haircut or trying a new hairstyle should be good enough to minimize the early stages of balding. You can get inspired by some of the best hairstyles for men and try one for yourself.

4. Grow it out

Growing out hair on top of your head is a great way to conceal your receding hairline. Once your hair is long enough, you can brush it forward or use a little amount of gel to keep it in place. Some good options include the out-of-bed style or even the shaggier hairstyle! Make sure you consult your hairdresser before growing your hair long so he can advise you on how long your hair should be so you can hide your balding spots.

5. Grow facial hair

Facial hair always draws more attention to the face and away from the head. Plus, if you have a nicely groomed beard you’ll not only look good but people will be so awed by it that they will forget to notice your thinning hair!


For so many years, the comb-over look was favorite amongst most men to hide their bald spots but not any longer because this look is dated. If you are suffering from thinning hair and want to minimize its appearance, just follow the tips to hide a receding hairline mentioned above and you can be sure of keeping your thinning hair woes a secret.
