4 simple ways to cover thinning hair

Hair thinning and loss can be concerning for many men and women. With around 25% of women and 50% of men experiencing some form of hair loss during their life, it’s important to remember that there are some easy ways to address the issue so that it doesn’t your self-esteem and quality of life.

In our guide, we take a look at some of the most popular and simplest methods of covering up thinning hair in both men and women.

Change your hairstyle

One of the most straightforward ways to manage thinning hair is through styling it differently. You’d be surprised by how effective a well-chosen haircut can be in concealing areas of hair loss.

Women should avoid a straight part as this can make things more obvious. A zig-zag division is both easy to do and an effective way to reduce the appearance of a patchy scalp. It’s also worth taking some weight off the hair to avoid it being dragged down. Moreover, shorter styles can be lifted more easily.

For men, shorter styles like the buzz cut can reduce the visibility of receding hairlines or thinning crowns. Start at grade three and then see if you’d prefer to go shorter, keeping the back and sides a grade lower for some shape. Additionally, those balding north may choose to go for a crew cut to help balance a thinning hairline, while a slick back style would best suit hair that is balding at the crown.

Hair thickening products

Hair products have improved significantly and offer a quick and stress-free solution for thinning hair. They are designed to create the illusion of thicker hair, free from bald patches. Hair fibres can be sprinkled onto the scalp where they cling to existing hair, adding instant density. 

There is also now hair thickener for men & women available in the form of spray that can be applied directly to the scalp. The use of a concealer spray can act as an efficient solution for a range of hair loss problems, providing thicker and more textured coverage.

Hair toppers and extensions

Whether you’re after additional volume or want to change your current style, hair toppers and extensions are an excellent option. Hair toppers are designed by a barber or hairstylist to blend with your natural hair, offering coverage specifically where you need it.

Extensions have always been a popular way to add both length and volume but are also great for those suffering from hair loss. Hairpieces come in various colours and textures, ensuring a natural blend with your existing hair. Do be careful though since they can damage your natural hair should proper precautions not be taken.


Headwear, including hats, scarves, and headbands, can be a stylish and practical solution for concealing thinning hair. These accessories can be as creative as you wish, adding a personal touch to your look while cleverly hiding any areas of concern. As there is a wide range of styles and colours available, it’s never been easier to match headwear to your existing wardrobe.
