50 Best Hairstyles for a Receding Hairline (Extended)

How to eliminate a hair loss issue with a great-looking haircut

written by Danny Puopolo

If you’re reading this, you are most likely finding a haircut suitable for a receding hairline. And before you think that this is not normal or is something to be embarrassed about, think again. Men and women lose approximately 100 strands of hair a day – a result of washing or brushing the hair – and is a normal part of everyone’s physiology. If it’s okay to lose hair, then why is it that men find their hairlines going further and further away from their eyebrows (especially in the temple areas)?

A receding hairline in men, which signals the beginning of hair loss, is inevitable and comes with age. Yes, it’s not just about the 100 strands of hair that you lose, this is the beginning of male pattern baldness. It usually starts in your late 20s to mid-30s (though some experience it as early as their teens), and fully manifests by the time you hit your 50s. Though there are varying numbers, it is reported that around 90% of men will undergo a form of hair loss in their lifetime.

Unless you find yourself in the lucky 10% who are absolved of this issue, genetics is the main culprit. But other factors like stress, diet, smoking, lifestyle, and of course, the presence of disease also contribute to hair loss.

We all know that our hair is our crowning glory. It is a part of our persona – our hair changes depending on our mood, depending on what phase of our lives we are in, and losing it could affect our self-esteem. Some would even resort to a hair transplant or medication.

But worry not, there are haircuts suitable for a receding hairline that will not just give you a fresher look but will give you that ‘oomph’ that you never thought is possible anymore. There are ways to accept this change and even celebrate it. Follow the lead of Hollywood stars that age like fine wine, embracing their receding hairlines as if it’s been there all this time, and you’d never have to doubt those hair strands falling every day. You’d be surprised at the results.
