Going for short textured hairstyles can really help in hiding it partially. It works well since it will add some volume to your forehead and create the illusion that you have much more fuller frontal hair.

It can help in case of thinning too and it is easy. Ensure you use products such as pomade to avoid making it look sticky or greasy.

Before we look at some of the options for women with this problem, see below photos and see what could work for you if none of the above discussed does suit you.

For women

Just like men, women who have the problem of receding frontal hair or thinning one should get the best styles and cuts. The exact way you will style it as a woman is dependent on the current state, its length, your face frame, and shape among many other factors.

Note that reducing pressure on hairline should be your objective. The general ones you opt for should help reduce more pressure on this area. Opt for the following:

Messy Ponytails and Buns – Ensure your messy ponytail is loose. This will enable you to “keep their hair away from their faces while maintaining the overall health of the hairline and scalp.” [eHow]

Try Bangs – if it is thinning, balding or receding, you can opt for bangs to help hide it. Go for a good one for women that have bangs that will easily it while keeping you in top fashion.

If you have less hair, you can go for bangs that add volume on top while hiding the receded areas. A blunt straight bang that has a cut reaching just above your eyes will perfectly cover your receding hairline. Similarly, a side swept bangs would do well for those you do not want to cut it.

Short and layered ones – Creating short layered haircuts can be of much help. You will be required to cut it to reduce the contrast on your hairline and draw attention from it. It will give you a chance to emphasize your other facial features.

Finally, ensure you work with your natural hair and reduce the use of chemicals and processes that require chemicals such as perms, relaxers, etc since they can inflame your follicles.
