Millions of people around the world of both genders suffer from thinning hair. Age, heredity, diseases, medical treatments and even some prescription drugs can cause this phenomenon. When faced with styling their hair, some resort to the dreaded “comb over,” while others might spend hundreds of dollars on a stylish wig. Fortunately, there are several alternatives.

Tips For Women

  1. Layer your hair. Layering can often give body and fullness to hair.
  2. Get a large-curled perm. Large, loose curls can make your hair look thicker.
  3. Select a same-length bob style. Hair should be chin length or shorter, and combed down to frame the face. A straight bob or layered bob are the best choices to style thinning hair.
  4. Choose a pixie cut. A pixie cut leaves hair longer on top and shorter on the sides and back. This style adds height to the top, giving the impression of thicker hair.
  5. Style your hair in an updo. Buns, French twists and braids are all great updos that work well to hide thinning hair.
  6. Color your hair. Highlights and lowlights are a great way to draw attention away from thinning hair.

Tips For Men

  1. Wear your hair short. This gives the hair a uniform look and gives the appearance of fullness. Hair should be cut to about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in length. Or, get a crew cut. Longer styles can actually accentuate thinning hair. Trim hair on a regular basis to keep it from getting too long.
  2. Sport a textured crop style. This style is best for men with thicker hair on the sides and back and thinning hair in front or on top. A textured crop uses uneven layers to blend thinning hair with thicker hair to make thinner spots less noticeable.
  3. Apply a light styling gel to your hair while your hair is damp. Blow dry hair while using a round brush. This will add volume to your hair.
  4. Shave your head. This popular choice works well on men with nicely shaped heads.


  • Bend at the waist and dry your hair with your head down. This can help add volume to your hair.
  • Part hair on the side, rather than in the middle, if you’re thinning on top.
  • Avoid a feather cut style for women. Feathering can actually make hair appear thinner.
  • Blow dry your hair in the opposite direction from your usual part. After drying, brush hair in the other direction. This can add fullness to your hair and diminish the appearance of thinning hair.
  • Use conditioners that you can leave in your hair. These products give hair a fuller look.


  • Do not wear straight hair styles. Straight hair does not add volume, which is crucial in hiding thinning hair.
  • Do not use thick or heavy styling gels. These products can cause your hair to lie flat and reveal, rather than disguise, thinning hair.
