    One trait shared by almost all men is a desire to look their best when they go out in public. This is true whether they're going out for work or play. One of the features men spend a great deal of time on is getting their hairstyle just right. However, this becomes more difficult for men with thinning hair and a receding hairline. Still, there are some hairstyles for men with a very high hairline.

    As a general rule, when a man starts losing his hair and his hairline starts receding, the ideal rule of thumb to follow is that less is more. A man with a high or receding hairline usually looks much better with a short haircut than he would try to grow his hair out to hide his receding hair line.

    With this in mind, some of the best haircuts for men with a very high hairline include a traditional crew cut, a buzz, a flat top, and in some cases a Caesar. The other easy way to cut and styled hair is to have the hair cut in layers. It is usually best to start with a shortcut on the sides and back layering into a longer length on top.

    For those who tend to be a little more rebellious, two options are a spiky and a faux hawk. The faux hawk style is achieved by having the haircut short on the sides and leaving a strip of longer hair in the center at the top. This particular style is good for men with receding temples.

    In extreme cases, where the hairline has receded too far back to accommodate any of these, the less is more statement can be carried to its full extreme by shaving the head and embracing the baldness.

    One of the more common mistakes that men with thinning hair make is trying to hide their receding hairline by growing the hair that remains on top to a longer length and combing it over to cover the thin patches. While this approach may work for a limited time, it soon becomes apparent that it is a comb-over and people start to find the hairstyle amusing.

    Thinning hair and receding hairlines are an unfortunate fact of life for many men. It becomes necessary to change the hairstyle one wears as the hairline moves farther up and back. One point to remember when choosing hairstyles for men with very high hairlines is that keeping the hair shorter is often more attractive than trying to grow it longer.
