The top of your head doesn’t look obviously thin to me, especially in the third photo. Could you ask a hairdresser to have a play with some up dos to see what works?

Have you considered a lace closure wig that has been constructed with natural density?  It covers your entire head (not just the top part) but if done properly, it can look just like a dressed up version of your hair.

hisqueentobe:  I was going to suggest a lace wig too. I would suggest getting one, cutting the lace around the the perimeter, and then place the wig right behind your natural hair line. Don’t use glue or tape because it may be damaging. Most of those wigs have adjustable straps on the inside to keep it snug. No one will be able to tell, plus you’ll look super glamorous.

Wigs are getting incredibly popular thanks to one Kylie Jenner.  I’d say at least try on a few to see how you like them.

I also have male pattern baldness.  So I wear a side part daily and extended a little more for my wedding.  In the 3rd pic it looks like you could get a deeper side part and still look fabulous.

Would a headpiece like this one work for you?

Could you just choose a nice accessory like a flower crown or something?  Then you don’t have to feel like you are making your hair into something it’s not, but you will still hide the thin areas you don’t like.

i absolutely LOVE clip in (yes easy!) hair extensions BUT you have to be careful where you buy… they have hair pieces too (yes get real human hair always!) …. my favorite are from Sallys Beauty Supply… about $130 for longer pieces but the best REMY hair (thats what you have to look for)…

when i was young in college i barely ate and had some disorders…. and lost alot of my hair… it is still not the same so… i have had struggles with this issue at the age of 19-30 (now)…. real hair pieces from http://www.irresistibleme.com/ but sallys has been the best fit and easiest…

make sure to get real remy hair… check youtube.com for reviews on the company you go with (i got my first in hollywood at their wig shops)… it can help…  but hey, having thin hair is something that many women struggel with! you will look amazing whatever you decide to do.. flowers and an up do are great too!
