When you have a receding hairline or sparse edges, it can be difficult to find hairstyles that work for you. Not only do you want to look and feel your best, you also don't want your hairstyles to cause further breakage or hair loss. These are the best women's hairstyles for receding hairlines so keep reading for all the info.
If your issues with a receding hairline or sparse edges stem mostly from sparse patches, bangs could be a great way to camouflage your problem areas.
Although the thought of bangs might incite visions of a Lego-like block of hair on your forehead or even Beyoncé's questionable but iconic 2014 bangs, they're surprisingly versatile. Keep it classic with a full fringe or opt for the more whimsical and wispy version which has been trending recently with the style a favourite for cool-girl celebs like Suki Waterhouse.

A deep side part can be amazing for hiding sparse edges if your hair loss is mainly concentrated on one side of your hair. A side part will work both to the left or to the right, allowing you to use the parted hair to disguise any areas of hair loss.
Although Gen-Z might claim these are out of fashion, nothing is truly out of fashion if you wear it with confidence.
Whether it's in a bob or left long, loose waves can disguise sparse patches of hair beautifully. They add more volume to your hair which also helps in drawing attention away from any obviously sparse patches of hair by allowing the hair to move and flow a little more freely.
Make the style damage-free by using a heatless method instead of using hot styling tools. It can take a few tries to get the technique down but once you do, it's super easy and means you wake up with your hair already done!
Wigs are a great way to style your hair without actually styling your natural hair. Full circumference wigs in particular are a great choice when it comes to the best hairstyles for people with receding hairlines or sparse edges. They allow you to be more adventurous with your hairstyles and even colour choices without the need to put your natural hair under excessive strain.
One of the best things to do to when it comes to treating a receding hairline or treating sparse edges is by keeping manipulation to the bare minimum to prevent further hair loss and shedding. Even better, you can style your wigs into the styles discussed above!
However, wigs alone won't help you keep receding hairlines or sparse edges protected especially if using potentially damaging attachment methods. Wigs are typically attached to the head using combs, clips or even glue. While these are the most common choices, they can be damaging to natural hair when used excessively. Instead of these archaic attachment methods, consider using the Wig Fix by The Renatural instead.
It's a medical-grade silicone hair gripper which grips to your wig to keep it secured. Taking just seconds to apply and remove, it works for people with and without bio hair. As it also helps to promote hair growth by stimulating blood flow, it's also perfect for people with receding or sparse hairlines.
Remember that if you're braiding or twisting your natural hair underneath your wig, make sure you don't style it too tight as this can lead to traction alopecia especially on hair that is already prone to hair loss.
