4 Sophisticated Haircuts for Balding Men to Consider

Hair Replacement Surgery Listed as Top Treatment for Hair LossHaircuts are a routine aspect of personal grooming that individuals of all ages undergo. But when you’re balding, trims are more than troublesome. After working so hard to find a style that makes you feel comfortable despite a receding hairline or thinning crown, stepping into the salon or barbershop provokes immense apprehension and worry. What if an unfamiliar stylist fails to listen to your specific needs properly, or worse, exacerbates the appearance of balding? Luckily, with some foresight and communication, you can avoid a regrettable haircut and move forward with newfound confidence.

There’s no reason to fear a qualified barber – and it might be time to part with your trusty comb-over. Ask for these six sophisticated yet practical haircuts for balding and thinning scalps:

Buzz Cut

Perhaps the quickest and most straightforward haircut is the simple buzz cut. Longer hair tends to display thinning more prominently while an ultra-short cut disguises prominent balding. Because buzzcuts are universal, rest assured that there’s a slim chance of your final cut ending up drastically different than you imagined due to miscommunication or an overzealous stylist. If you trust yourself and have a steady hand, purchase some clippers and trim at home to save a few dollars each month.

Pushed Back

If you suffer from thinning around the hair line, try a pushed back look. Many men assume slicking hair back intensifies a withdrawn hairline, but this look makes the gap between your brow and hairline appear intentional. Keep hairs medium length around the front to brush them back with styling cream while trimming the temples to create a volumized shape. Don’t forget to purchase a high-quality pomade or hairspray to maintain that desired shape all day (or night) long.

The Caesar Cut

Made famous by George Clooney, the Caesar cut helps conceal recession by pulling short hairs forward to mimic the appearance of a youthful hair line. Make this hairdo slightly softer by angling the front instead of cutting straight across in a horizontal line. Use a styling cream to keep hairs in place throughout the day, but avoid hard gels which can lead to clumping or spiking.


Embracing your balding while you wait for a hair restoration treatment to take effect can eliminate some of the embarrassment behind androgenic alopecia. Numerous men – even those without hair loss – choose to shave their head hair for a cleaner and sometimes more masculine look. To offset a clean-shaven scalp, and to avoid channeling Mr. Clean, let your facial hair grow out slightly for a scruffy style. Or, go with a tailored beard to channel the hipster within.

Teens and Hair Loss- The Top 7 Causes

High-Risk Hair Styles for Women

High-Risk Hairstyles for WomenDo you ever feel that wearing your hair too tight is pulling on your delicate strands? A study from the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore shows that a strong association exists between overly tight hairstyles that lead to scalp tension and eventually, a hair loss condition called traction alopecia.

Traction alopecia occurs in a few different ways. Trichotillomania, an emotional disorder that leads to unwanted to unconscious hair plucking and pulling, is a common cause. Helmets, too, used for sports and physical activity, are a leading culprit behind the hair-loss condition. In addition, when someone wears their hair too tight for prolonged periods of time, they expose themselves to traction alopecia. Sometimes, thinning and balding become increasingly obvious when the hair is pulled, twisted or over-styled for a prolonged period of time.

Review these hairstyles to avoid if you’ve been diagnosed with traction alopecia:

  • Excessively tight ponytails or braids
  • Dreadlocks
  • Hair extensions
  • Thermal straightening
  • Permanent weaving
  • Wigs

Each of these styles varies in degree of risk, but the John Hopkins research shows traction alopecia is aggravated when tight styles are applied to hair treated with chemical straightening agents or “relaxed” hair. In addition, blow drying and flat irons can weaken strands, but are less likely to cause significant hair loss as compared to the combinations above. To prevent traction alopecia from hairstyles, John Hopkins says braids should be let loose after three months. In addition, weaves and extensions should never be in place for longer than eight weeks. The less time with high-risk styles, the greater chance an individual reduces the threat of developing traction alopecia.

In order to treat traction alopecia, Miami Hair recommends both low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and FUE hair transplants. LLLT caps use FDA-approved lasers to stimulate blood flow and revive dormant hair follicles, promoting natural hair growth. When used after eliminating high-risk hair styles from your life, you can better the odds of regrowth after damage. However, the most effective process in restoring hair after damage is through hair restoration surgery. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) transplants individual follicular units to fill-in balding areas precisely, creating natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing results.

Nearly two-thirds of men suffer with hair loss, and one out of every four women face thinning or shedding hair. Schedule a consultation by contacting our office so you can discuss how to lessen the effects of and treat traction alopecia or other hair loss conditions.

Let’s face it: World Cup enthusiasm is contagious. Especially if you live in Miami, a city known for being the Gateway to the Americas, and a rich melting pot of cultures from South America, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States. From Calle Ocho to Brickell Ave. and Espanola Way on South Beach, it seems everyone is joining together to watch the world’s best soccer players as they compete for the world championship.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we share our city’s excitement as we band together to cheer-on and celebrate some of the best athletes in the world. And while we’re watching, we cannot help but notice:

There are some really crazy hairstyles our there.

World Class Hair at the World Cup

Below are our 10 favorite hairstyles of the World Cup. With so many matches left to play, it’s going to be exciting to see if this list grows! See something we missed? Share in the comments below!

1. Jennifer Lopez

Many celebrities call Miami home, and we were excited to see 2 of our favorites during the opening ceremony of the World Cup. Pitbull, Claudia Leitte, and Jennifer Lopez performed, stoking the crowd into an excited frenzy. Our favorite hairstyle among the 3: Jennifer Lopez, of course.

2. Wayne Rooney

One of our favorites is Wayne Rooney, hands-down. The English footballer has a handsome head of hair that was recently restored with a robotic FUE transplant procedure. Rooney took to social media to discuss the procedure with hundreds of thousands of Twitter Followers, and he uploaded photos afterward to proudly show-off his new hairline.

3. Neymar da Silva Santos Junior

Brazil’s star footballer, Neymar, takes the #3 spot on our list of favorite World Cup hairstyles. Long in the front, shaved on the sides, and just a bit in the back, this hairstyle is sure to be seen on both the field and in the stands as it’s a popular look for Brazilian men.

4. Marouane Fellaini-Bakkioui

Former Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini-Bakkioui measures just under 7 feet tall when you include the 6” afro he’s sporting for the World Cup. Marouane gets major points for the disco look, but we can’t imagine it’s easy to play under such a heavy head of hair.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo

Portugal’s star footballer debuted a classic ’50s era hairstyle for the World Cup that the media immediately dubbed as Superman-esque. Watch Ronaldo play during the World Cup this year, and you might agree; his speed and strength are certainly something that opponents will have to aggressively counter.

6. Bacary Sagna

The French national team boasts Bacary Sagna, a man who is often called the best right back on the Premier League. Those who don’t know Bacary for his ball handling skills know him for his iconic braids, a look he’s been wearing proudly since his younger days.

7. Kyle Beckerman

How long does it take to grow dreadlocks? Ask American footballer Kyle Beckerman, and he’ll tell you he’s been growing them for almost 9 straight years. And while we love the laid-back look, we have to warn our readers: Dreadlocks have the potential to cause premature hair thinning and sometimes even traction alopecia.

8. Kouassi Gervais Yao

Yao is know for his signature look: Long, tightly woven braids held back by a thick black headband. His teammates say he has the best hair on the Roma team, and we have to agree. Not only does the headband keep the sweat from his eyes, but it also helps to hold his braids in place, relieving the scalp of excessive stress during play. This can also keep hair healthy over time, preventing problems of thinning/traction alopecia described above.

9. Asamoah Gyan

Next on our list is Asamoah Gyan, a player who proudly dyed his number into the side of his head. Now, the golden 3 will be seen darting up and down the field throughout the World Cup as Ghana vies for a spot in the finals.

10. Ermin Bičakčić

Ermin Bičakčić has perhaps one of the most easily recognizable hairstyles of the Bosnian team. The center back can be easily spotted beneath his Euro-style mohawk, a tall and thin look that we can only imagine takes a lot of prep time and hair product to last an entire match.

11. Georgios Samaras

Georgios Samaras has a long-hair-don’t-care look that most Greeks are proud to cheer on. He keeps it rock and roll with a five o’clock shadow that looks lazy, but the footballer’s speed and agility are anything but.
