Don't Despair Over Thinning Hair! Here's How A Barber Can Help You Gracefully Go Bald

by Wanda Chambers

Despite being extremely common, many men continue to fear hair loss and baldness — the hair that falls out when you shower is an undeniable sign of aging. However, losing your hair isn't a problem when you have a skilled barber on your side. A barber can cut and style your hair in order to add volume when it first begins to thin. Additionally, they can also help you transition to an extremely short haircut as your hair loss progresses. If you're noticing that your hairline is receding or that your hair is thinning, here's what you need to do.

Request a Cut and Style That Hides Thinning or Receding Hair

When you first notice your hair thinning, it's time to schedule an appointment with a skilled barber. In men, it's typical for hair to first begin thinning at the very top of the head. A barber can cut your hair short, using uneven layers that are styled in a tousled manner in order to add volume to thinning sections of hair. This makes your hair appear thicker and reduces the visibility of bald spots.

Another common problem is when you begin to form a widow's peak — this happens when the hair follicles at the top of your forehead slowly begin to die off. Over time, your hairline recedes further back on your head and your forehead gets larger and larger. Thankfully, a barber can also help you hide your widow's peak by cutting your hair in a style that keeps the hair on the top of your head long, allowing them to act as bangs that hide your receding hairline.

Prepare to Make a Radical Hairstyle Change as Your Hair Loss Progresses

Unfortunately, male pattern baldness tends to progress as you age — thinning hair and a receding hairline are often a precursor of large bald spots that even the best barber in the world won't be able to cover. When you reach this point, it's time to radically alter your hairstyle — some men choose to shave their heads and go entirely bald, while others opt for a short buzz cut.

No matter what you decide to do, it's best to seek the services of a barber when you make such a radical change to your hairstyle. If you decide to go fully shaven, a barber can shave your head for you and then tell you how to properly shave your head at home without cutting yourself or causing itchy ingrown hairs. If you decide a buzz cut is more suitable for you, a skilled barber can blend healthy sections of hair into your bald spots in order to create a short, even head of hair. While shaving your head or getting a buzz cut is a drastic change for many men, making the switch with the services of a professional barber ensures that the final result will look great and that you'll be happy with your choice.

Consider Growing Facial Hair to Provide a Visual Contrast

Some men choose to grow facial hair when they begin to go bald. It's a great look for men, since the facial hair provides an interesting visual contrast to a shaved head or very short haircut. However, it's important to keep your facial hair well-trimmed in order to keep it looking great. Thankfully, a barber can help you style and trim your facial hair so that it suits the shape of your face and doesn't look ragged or unruly. If you decide to stop shaving and grow out your facial hair, make an appointment at a barbershop to find out the best way to style and maintain it. 

While losing your hair can be scary and frustrating, it doesn't have to be the end of your good looks — a professional barber can use many techniques to minimize the appearance of your thinning hair or give you a new and different hairstyle that's suitable for the amount of hair you have. When you start to notice hair in your shower or your sink, schedule an appointment at a local barbershop, such as Manhattan Barbershop, and ask about which styles look best on men with thinning hair.
