When people start to notice that a bit of hair seems to be going down the sink or shower drain, they may be able to ignore it for a little while. However, balding is something that can occur naturally over time in both men and women. Although there is no single trick for reversing this process, there are several things a person might do with their hair to hide baldness. Here are just four fashionable hairstyles you can try if you are balding.
It’s important not to write off the simple yet classic style that just embraces short hair. Just cutting the hair down to a more manageable length will already do wonders to hide some of the baldness. At least one other advantage when it comes to trying a shorter hairstyle than a person might like is lift. Cutting hair shorter than normal gives a person’s hair lift and makes it seem like there is more of it than is actually there.
Layered hairstyles can work well for both men and women who might be experiencing balding. This kind of hairstyle can be particularly useful if a person uses shorter inner layers under longer outer layers. This combination can give the impression of increased volume in the hair—something that many women might appreciate. A balding person with this hairstyle can also go for a hair transplant in the middle of the scalp while the layers cover the area for regrowth.
One of the main things to look at if a person is dealing with hair loss is where on the scalp the baldness is starting to show. Finding out the answer to this question can help individuals experiencing baldness decide on the styles that might work for their needs. If your hair is starting to thin out on the crown of your head or near the hairline, you may want to consider the buzzed look. It’s a clean yet minimal look that highlights the natural hair still in place.
This look may work best for those who are just starting to go bald. A haircut in uneven layers means that it is relatively easy to tousle and add a disheveled yet endearing appearance to the overall style.
Finding out that you might be balding is never fun, but using it as an impetus to change your hairstyle can make the whole process a bit more palatable. Paired with a new wardrobe or different outlook on life, some of these fashionable hairstyles can be just the thing to help tackle the balding problem. As an added bonus tip, consider growing out some facial hair to detract attention away from your scalp.
