If you're experiencing hair loss or thinning, you may feel self-conscious about visible areas of the scalp showing through. However, there are ways to temporarily cover up bald spots or diffuse thinning while pursuing treatment options. Here are some tips to easily and naturally conceal hair loss.

How to Cover Up Hair Loss

Using scalp makeup, hair fibers, strategic hairstyles and accessories can help camouflage hair loss or create the illusion of fullness.

Scalp Concealers

Use colored powders or creams to coat visible areas of the scalp and match your hair color.

Hair Thickening Fibers

These colored keratin fibers cling to hairs to add the appearance of density.

Styling Tricks

Wear hairstyles like headbands or messy buns that draw attention upward, away from thinning.

Headwear and Accessories

Scarves, hats, jeweled clips or headbands disguise bald spots or diffuse shedding.

Choose a tinted powder or cream that seamlessly blends with your natural hair color.

Your Skin Type and Tone

Opt for oil-free options if you have oily skin or scalp.

Powders or creams with SPF help protect the sensitive scalp.

Pro Tips for Applying Scalp Concealers

Here are some tips for getting the most natural look when applying scalp cosmetics:

Exfoliate First

Gently exfoliate to remove any flakes or excess oils.

Use a Bald Cap

For large areas, apply concealer on a latex cap then put it on your head.

Lightly Dab Powder

Use a makeup sponge to lightly dab powder onto visible scalp in thin layers.

Mist Between Layers

Lightly mist your hair and scalp between powder layers to blend it in.

Set it

Finish with a setting powder or spray to make it last all day.

Hairstyles and Accessories to Hide Thinning

You can also strategically disguise hair loss with these styles and accessories:

Headbands and Bandanas

These cover the hairline and draw attention upwards.

Hats and Caps

Baseball caps, fedoras and beanies perfectly hide thinning.


Creative wrapping techniques conceal widespread shedding.

Messy Buns and Updos

pull back thinning hair loosely to create fullness on top.

Layered Cuts

Ask your stylist for layered locks to maximize fullness.

When to See a Dermatologist

While concealing cosmetics help temporarily, see a dermatologist if your hair loss persists so you can explore medical treatment options to stimulate regrowth.
