Receding hairlines are not something anyone ever wants to deal with, but more often than not, they just happen. The best course of action is to own it, and for a lot of guys, this means adapting their hairstyle arsenals accordingly. The good news is that, with the right products, this doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming!
1/ Add texture
Enhancing the texture of your hair won't change a receding hairline, but it will help you to make the most of the hair you have. Loose waves, tousled strands and piecey locks all help to make the hair appear fuller, and all of them are right on-trend. The trick is to apply a matte product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum sparingly before scrunching, twisting, and ruffling the hair with your hands.
2/ Sweep it back
If your hairline is the only issue and the rest of your mane is as full as it ever was, be bold and sweep your hair back with a small amount of regular strength gel or matte putty. Hiding behind overstretched, long bangs is unlikely to hide the problem and could potentially end up making it more obvious.
3/ Keep it trim
As a rule, you should cut your hair shorter as the hairline moves further back to keep your look balanced- layered shags, caesar cuts and tousled spikes are all great options. Also, make sure you visit your barber or stylist every 4-6 weeks for a trim because keeping your hairstyle in great shape can make a huge difference to your overall look and, consequently, confidence levels when dealing with a receding hairline.
