Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

What Are Good Haircuts To Disguise Male-Pattern Hair Loss?

As the years go by, your hairline goes back. Male-pattern hair loss (MPHL) results in a receding hairline, the loss of hair on the crown of your head, or both. It's incredibly common, as it affects roughly 50% of males by the age of 50, to various degrees. MPHL doesn't follow a predetermined timeline, and you won't necessarily go completely bald either. You might have considered seeking out medicinal or surgical options to reverse your MPHL, but perhaps the most important thing to learn is that some haircuts can work with your MPHL, rather than emphasizing it.

The Collegiate Look

Haircut services for men affected by MPHL tend to favor military-style hairstyles, depending on how much hair the stylist has to work with, as well as the look you want to achieve. Although your hairline is receding, your remaining hair might be relatively thick. You may wish to leave some length on top, allowing you more versatility. A collegiate look is a great option. This is a (relatively) short back and sides while leaving some volume on the crown of your head. This hair will be long enough to be slicked back, or parted. It's stylish, simple, and pulls focus away from your hairline.

Crew Cuts

Perhaps your current hairline isn't quite compatible with the collegiate look. If the hair on your crown is thinning, it can be difficult to achieve a collegiate look. Instead, consider a crew cut. This involves a short machine cut on the back and sides of your head while leaving a few inches of hair on your crown. This can be styled but isn't long enough to slick back or part. Again, it pulls focus away from your hairline. 

Buzz Cuts and Razor Shaves

Advanced MPHL requires a different approach. Hair can frame your face, but you're going for an unframed look, drawing attention to your face, instead of your hair. A buzz cut is a great way to camouflage a receding hairline and thinning hair. It's ultra-short, with no extra length on top. By this point, you may (hopefully) be ready to embrace your MPHL. It's a bold look, but consider an all-over razor shave. Yes, this results in baldness (with regular touch-ups needed, as is the case with a buzz cut), but it also allows you to take control of your look—you're acknowledging your baldness, while also demonstrating that you couldn't care less because you still look so darn stylish.

As your MPHL develops, use it as an opportunity to shake up your look. The golden rule is that you must keep your hair short, but there's still a lot of versatility in short hair.
