Low ponytail

To conceal any bald patches on the bottom half of your head, try a simple ponytail. Use a mirror at the front and back to see what you’re doing, and carefully comb hair until the patches are concealed. You might want to use a hair gel to keep the strands in place, and avoid them moving due to wind or even rain.

Side braid

If you want to cover up thin, hair or bald patches, then a side braid is ideal. Rather than keeping your hair looking super-slicked back, go for a messy look which makes it look thicker. Use a volumising hair mousse and scrunch up hair from root to tip, before fastening the braid with a clear elastic.

Tight bun

Hide any bald patches by using a sock-bun in the centre of your head. Not only is the most common place where women suffer from bald patches, but it’s also quite simple to disguise. Wrap thick strands of hair around the bun, then hold it all in place with a few bobby pins.

Cut a fringe

A side or even front fringe is another fantastic way to conceal any bald patches. Cut a wispy fringe which isn’t too thick since it can sometimes draw attention to the wrong strands of hair.

Hair powder

Coloured hair powder is perfect for concealing tiny bald patches without the use of costly extensions or hair pieces. They blend in beautifully with the natural colour of your hair, and don’t create irritation or leave behind any visible residue on the scalp.

Extensions

A popular way to conceal any patches of baldness is by using extensions. If you have a special event coming up, and want to create the illusion of thicker hair, then use clip-ins. They are super easy to blend into the hairline, and look flawless when styled in an updo or braided look.
