Top 10 Best Haircuts for Men with Receding Hairlines

Thinning and receding hair can be a major blow to self-esteem. However, there are ways to work with what you have and sport a haircut that leaves you looking handsome and confident. Here are the best 10 hairstyles that celebrity men wear for you to chose from.

1. The Aaron Eckhart

best-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-aaron-eckhart Aaron Eckart is a good example of why short styles are the way to go with thinning and receding hairlines. He keeps it simple with a short-medium length on the sides, and a messy push-over on top. 

2. The Alexander Skarsgard

best-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-alexander-skarsgard Alexander Skarsgard works a short side cut, with a medium length crown. While you want to stay away from too long of a length when it comes to thinning or receding hair, this cut works because of how he styles it. Using a pomade or a texturing paste gives your hair volume, which makes your head look fuller. 

3. The Bruce Willis

If you want to completely rid yourself of any kind of hair maintenance, then going for a bald look may be for you. 4. The Daniel Craig best-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-daniel-craig Daniel Craig is the poster child for exquisite men’s style (which he should, being James Bond). He doesn’t let his thin and receding hair stop him from being the best though. He keeps it simple with a short cut, and smooths his top over. 5. The Dolph Lundgrenbest-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-Dolph-Lundgren Dolph Lundgren stuns the cameras with a cut and style that is actually quite genius. He keeps it short on the sides and long enough on the top so that he can spike it. What makes this genius is how he frosted his tips, leaving a darker color at the roots. This gives the appearance of thicker and fuller hair and thus hiding any signs of thinning and receding. 6. The Easton Corbin

This leads to the appearance of a fuller head of hair. 7. The Matthew Bellamybest-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-matthew-bellamy Matthew Bellamy takes on a similar style to Easton Corbin, but decides to keep it more smooth and flat. 8. The Stephen Dorffbest-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-stephen-dorffStephen Dorff hides his thinning hair through the use of some kind of pomade or texturing paste that allows him to style his hair in a way that provides depth and thickness. 9. The Will Young

best-haircuts-for-men-with-receding-hairlines-steve-mcqueenSteve McQueen still stands as one of the biggest male fashion and style icons of all time. Not only did he perfect a man’s wardrobe, but he keep the style on top of his head on point as well. Simply smoothing the hair over without too much hair product and making a well defined side-part makes this look simple, but elegant.
