A receding hairline doesn’t have to mean reaching for the clippers and ending it all. Unlike, say, a completely bald crown, there are lots of ways to style out an expanding forehead with the hair you’ve got left.

Losing Your Hair is a factor – more often than not hereditary – that can affect a man’s self-esteem. And while one look at Jason Statham should solve that, there are multiple cuts that will flatter a receding hairline and prolong your locks.

“With the right cut, there are several ways you can balance out a receding hairline,” says Bruno Gonclaves Ribeiro, head barber at Ted’s Grooming Room. “For a casual but neat look, ask for an all-over scissored cut to create the illusion of thickness. Retreating scalps also benefit from a classic sweep back to draw attention away from the forehead, while still embracing modern trends from the likes of Daniel Craig.”

If a good cut is the right foundation, consider choice product your cement. “Use a hair putty to make your hair appear thicker in texture. This will add lift and volume, while ensuring your style remains in place,” says Ribeiro. “Avoid using a greasy, dense wax or gel as this can make hairs clump together, which gives the appearance of thinness.”
