When you have thinner hair, it can be hard to find the right hairstyle that will not only compliment your facial shape but also perhaps hide the thinning spots of your hair as well. All too many times the latest and most popular hairstyles tend to only accentuate your thinning hair instead of making you feel more comfortable and fashionable. There are millions of people who have thin or fine hair that may not go well with absolutely every hairstyle, but there are many great hairstyles that can compliment your hair and your style.

As men and women both experience thinning and fine hair, men have to be just as careful with their hairstyles as women.

For men the absolute best hairstyle and cut to go with is of course the short hairstyle. If you have really fine and thinning hair then you will want to avoid the spiked up look. However if your hair is only slightly fine then you can more than likely still pull off the gelled spikes and enjoy this style as it is a classic that will never go out of style.

If you hair is too fine for this look than there is nothing wrong with leaving your hair short and not styled. Men can pull off this look as sexy, rugged and even casual.
