Hairstyles for balding men may sound like a sore subject, but as Hollywood has shown, even the hottest heartthrobs are not immune to hair loss. From athletes to actors, they have a leg up on the everyday man because their stylists have figured out how to keep them looking their best.

The combover is the easiest style to achieve among haircuts for balding men. It is also versatile enough to come in a wide range of styles and lengths. Here is an illustration of how to style a shorter look. The sides are faded, while the top part is shorn for a clean look, then swept over to one side. This fills out the receding hairline, while the facial hair complements the look by balancing the cut.

Hairstyles for men with thin hair might seem limited to looks with lots of gel or super strategic styling, but that isn’t always true. Case in point: this get-up-and-go version of the high and tight is cool and casual. The choppiness at the top gives you the texture and volume you’re missing, while the tapered fade makes your thinner areas hardly noticeable.
