thinning of hair?
I noticed my little princess is starting to thin out/go bald on the top of her head..... its a little red, but the redness has gone away...
i dont put her hair up often just on special occasions (ie, christmas photos, big outtings etc.) so she doesnt have constant stress or strain being put on that area. Should I take her to see a vet or keep an eye on it?

It could be several things so I would have the vet look at it.

You probably should have the area looked at and possibly cultured as the top of the head is often where ringworm (a fungus, not a worm) shows up in dogs.
