A Guy’s Guide to Styling Thinning Hair


Guys, let's be real: hair loss happens. It can be due to genetics, stress, or even the weather (thanks, El Niño). But that doesn't mean you're doomed to a lifetime of comb-overs and baseball caps. In fact, with the right approach, you can achieve a flattering, suitable style that maximizes volume and confidence.

The Same, but Different: Thin Hair vs. Fine Hair

Let's dig right in by distinguishing the difference between fine hair and thin hair. Although these terms are often used interchangeably, they signify different aspects of your hair.

When we say 'fine' hair, we're referring to the thickness of each strand. On the other hand, 'thin' hair relates to the overall density of hair on your head. It's worth noting that these characteristics can coexist.

Given that both thin and fine hair share certain challenges, particularly the struggle with lack of volume, many of the tips we’ll provide are relevant to both. However, our focus is specifically on addressing the concerns of men with thin hair.

Embrace the Short Side

For starters, ditch the long, stringy locks. Shorter styles are your friend when it comes to thinning hair. Think crops, buzz cuts, textured quiffs, and anything with a bit of movement. These styles add volume and play with the natural lines of your head, distracting from any thinning areas.

Washing Woes: Are You Using the Right Shampoo and Conditioner?

Happy, healthy hair starts with a solid wash–and choosing the right products for your thinning hair can make a world of difference. Suavecito Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner contain Niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B3 that is believed to restore damaged hair and increase suppleness of hair for the appearance of thicker strands. The infused Rosemary Oil in both our shampoo and conditioner is known to promote hair growth and improve your overall hair health. Name a better duo; we’ll wait.

Style Sans Comb

Ditch the comb and brush! When dealing with thinning hair, the trusty tools of your past can make hair look flat and might only highlight what you're trying to minimize. Instead, embrace the natural movement and lift that finger styling brings. This adds subtle texture and volume without weighing hair down or clinging limply to the scalp.

Bring the Heat

Blow drying your hair is absolutely essential for guys with thinning hair. Complete your look by blow drying your hair on medium heat for added texture and lift. Doing so also separates individual strands to make them appear thicker.


Remember, guys, thinning hair doesn't define us. With the right attitude, haircut, and Suavecito by your side, you can still own your style and tell your own unique hair story. So crank up the confidence, stack your grooming arsenal, and show the world what you're made of, one follicle at a time.
