Older men looking for hairstyles may feel limited by their options. Fortunately, there are plenty of short and long hairstyles for older men – even those with gray hair, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. For example, hairstyles for men over 50 with salt and pepper hair include side parts, brush-ups, the modern comb over, or even buzz cuts. Any of these classic styles and cuts would look great for mature men – it’s just a matter of styling and being confident in your look.
Finding the best hairstyles for men with receding hairlines can be crucial to maintaining your confidence and avoiding a big change in your appearance. What it really comes down to is the type of hair you have and the receding hairline haircuts that suit your overall look.
Generally, thicker hair is easier to work with since it covers a receding hairline more easily and allows for greater hairstyle options. Barber Tracy Strycker at Salon Allegra recommends the best haircuts for receding hairlines tend to be shorter hairstyles, such as spiked up hair, faux hawks, buzz cuts, or even a shaved head. We highly recommend trying some sort of mid to high fade on the sides, as shorter hair on the sides will greatly reduce the contrast of your receding hairline.
