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.
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.
“ Most of the time a great haircut & maybe “some color”—(color thickens the hair) is all that is necessary.
If you style your hair properly, the thinner areas fade into the background.
- MENS HAIRCUT FOR A THINNING CROWN AREA
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— I can’t say it enough!
As the bald spot grows many men are tempted to resort to the dreaded 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 too 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.
TIPS & WARNINGS
- 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! (And 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.

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