# 2 Smooth Slick Back

For this one, you will not even need any trimming because you only have to brush back your short strands and maybe give them a slight lift at the front just to spice up the look.


# 3 Short and Uniform

The neatness of this haircut will draw all the attention away from your balding hair. It entails chopping the strands very short and in a uniform length before finishing with a simple line-up to enhance the neatness.


# 4 Comb Over with Side Part and Taper Fade

This comb over style will work for most balding men, and the good thing about it is that it will allow you to maintain a longer hair than most others.

# 5 Thin and Faded

These strands are not only balding, but they are also thin. However, they have an inventive style that entails fading and sweeping them frontwards. And if you pair this with a full beard you will look magnificent.


# 6 Brushed Back and Tapered Waves

Wavy hair is perfect for balding men as it makes it hard to notice the receding hairline. In this design, it combines with the tapered strands to create an eye-catching haircut.


# 7 Short with Bald Fade

A bald fade on the sides and some short fine strands on the crown will help draw attention away from your receding hairline. Apart from this, the hairdo also has a lovely ginger shade that adds some elegance to the look.


# 8 Swept Back and Layered

If you have a medium size hair, you can try this beautiful hairdo, and the good thing about it is that it is very straightforward.

To create this headdress, you only need to trim the ends of your strands, gel them and finish by sweeping them back in layers.


# 9 Tapered Flat Top with Line Up

# 10 Funky Side Sweep

You can still maintain some length on your hair even if you are balding. This style is a perfect example of this and to wear it you should create a mild side part and use it to sweep the strands to the sides and finish by cutting their ends to make them blunt.


# 11 Smooth Side Parting

You don’t want attention on your thinning and receding hairline. So, smooth it down so its thinness looks intentional with a side parting that looks classy.


  # 12 Textured Curls

# 13 Quiff Comb-Over Fade

A fade hides any balding on the sides while a quiff adds volume and hides it on top of the head. Filling out the look with a thick beard shows you can still rock hair – just less of it on your head.


# 14 High Fade Slick Back

Some people have a natural mature hairline without recession. Pretend you’re one of them, have confidence in yours and slick back the rest of your hair to show it off. An accompanying high fade disguises thin or balding sides.


# 15 Comb Forward with Fade

Strategically combing your hair over the receding areas can only do so much. Add a fade so people think the thick-to-thin is an all-over texture choice.


# 16 Buz Cut Bristles

A buzz cut is so short that people don’t really notice the balding. Pair it with a much thicker beard and people will be further distracted from the issue.

Let your natural grey shine but add some color on top to add dimension. Brush the thickest part of your hair over any receding on the sides and it looks so natural that nobody would know you’re balding.


# 18 Tall Bristles
