For styling hair that is thinning, one thing you need to do is avoid longer hairstyles. Thinner hair when grown long tends to look stringy. A good style that looks neat and flattering is to have the hair at the top of the head where it is thinning cut so that the hairs in the centre of the top will reach to the top side of the head or a little shorter. The shorter lengths overlapping one another will make the hair appear thicker. The hair can be combed forward or obliquely at an angle and minimize the appearance of the widow’s peak.
