Hairstyles for Hair Loss

We all care about how we look, which is why hair loss can be so devastating to our self-esteem. People see our faces, and our hair, first – it’s a key component of any first impression.

Here’s a rundown of flattering hairstyles for women with hair loss.  Try any of these and boost your confidence and improve your appearance.


For overall thinning hair:

  1. Add volume by wearing it shoulder length, and use mouse and style products to give it volume and texture.
  2. seaside hairWear it long and wavy, using a cut with several lengths of layers and even a multidimensional color (ie, highlights and lowlights in several colors). Add even more volume to this style by using a sea salt spray. For this look, think mermaids and “beach hair“.
  3. Try the “ombre” dyed look with a darker top and lighter ends, to draw the eyes down rather than to the scalp.  While one of my rules is to avoid bleach and dyes, I make an exception for the “ombre” look, as typically the bleach is only on the lower end of the hair and not near the scalp and follicles.


For receding hairlines:

  1. girl with banksAdd bangs. This will hide your receding or patchy hairline and make your entire face/forehead look smaller.
  2. Wear your hair up in messy ponytails and buns – this gives the illusion of more volume and hair on top of your head
  3. Short pixie cut – draws attention away from your hair loss in one specific place on the scalp; evens out the impact visually.
  4. HAIR BANDS – this creates a “new hairline” and disguises patchy areas close to your face.
