Hi folks, I hope this article finds you prosperous and in good health, but mostly in good health!


Now, let’s talk about one of the biggest hair problem that most men have.




I have had a million calls on this article!


A lot of people said they heard about it but didn’t get a chance to read it, so  I thought I would run it again.


This is for all you men who are experiencing this very frustrating problem, I know it will help tremendously if you follow the advise in this column!


Most people think of Chrissy’s Hair Salon as one of the top hair salons for hair coloring, corrective hair coloring, hair styling, etc.


While that’s all true, did you know that almost half of our clients are men!

It seems no matter where I go, some guy will come up to me and say “I read your article in Shop RI, It was good, but when are you going to write something about men”?


So I started thinking, what is the one hair problem that the majority of men are facing, and the obvious answer is thinning hair!


For millions of men, losing their hair is a harsh reality.


Many times men are tempted to compensate for their hair loss by growing what hair they have as long as they can or, even worse, resorting to the dreaded “comb over”.


However, going bald doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of bad hairstyles.


  •  Accept that thinning hair is a hereditary condition you will most likely have to live with for the rest of your life.


  •  Though there are some treatments on the market such as hair transplants or prescription medications, most men have to accept the hair they have and learn to adjust their hairstyle accordingly.  For instance you can grow the front bang section of your hair slightly longer in order to cover up the hair loss, such as actor Charlie Sheen does, for an early stage receding hairline.


“ Most of the time a great haircut & maybe some color (color thickens the hair) is all that is necessary and the receding temples are less noticed”.


  • Opt for a short cut with the top being left only slightly longer.

This hairstyle takes the focus away from where the hair isn’t and places it on where the hair is.


If you style the hair you have well, the thinner areas fade into the background.




  • THINK SHORT—If your hair is also thinning from the crown of your head you may have to do double camouflage duty,  For a bald spot that begins at the crown of your head your best bet is to keep your hair short.


  • Shorter hair always appears thicker, so keeping your hair short on top will help hide the thinning spot.


  • Avoid the “comb-over” Avoid the “comb-over” Avoid the “comb-over”, I can’t say it  enough!!!!


As the  bald spot grows many men are tempted to resort to the comb over.

No matter what you think, a comb over—growing your hair long on top, parting it to the side and combing it over the balding area—fools no one and NEVER LOOKS GOOD!


Growing hair long in the back to make up for a receding hairline will only draw more attention to your hair loss.


Cutting the hair really short, greatly lessens the obvious contrast between where there is –and isn’t hair –and actually makes the large bald spots much less noticeable.




  1.  Communicate with your hairstylist and be open about your receding hairline concerns.


You should feel comfortable talking about how to effectively style your hair, to make it appear more full.


Thinning hair is a sensitive topic, but remember, “almost every man” experiences this problem, but with the right haircut and the right hair stylist, and getting a trim about every three weeks, it is amazing how good you will look!             (That’s a promise)!


Now, are you ready for this?

For men only, if you are a new client and for one time only, Chrissy’s will give you a discount on your haircut, and the discount will be according to how old you are.


For instance, if you are 40 years old, you will get a 40% discount, 50 years old, a 50% discount, etc. etc.  Just show your driver’s license, and get the  best haircut you’ve ever had, no if’s, and’s or but’s!!!




  1.  Ask about “ thinning hair treatment products” to add more volume.  This can be another effective way to add thickness.


 But you must buy “the right products for your particular hair”, because  the wrong products will absolutely not help.


You and your stylist should evaluate your hair’s reaction to the products and adjust your thinning hair haircut accordingly. The added thickness may allow you to be more creative with your haircut.


  1.   Because Chrissy’s specializes in hair styles for men & women with all stages of thinning hair, Chrissy’s has all the right products and our staff has extensive training in hair styles for men & women with thinning hair.


We will make you look great, no matter how much hair loss you may be experiencing!


And again,   (That’s a promise)!
