Whether your hair is short, medium, or long, you can easily create a sexy hairstyle. But, simply creating that hairstyle and looking good in it are two different things entirely. The key to wearing a sexy hairstyle is choosing one that will flatter your best features. The top sexy hairstyles are:
If you're fifty years old, you won't look sexy sporting a modified French twist sprayed with baby's breath. You'll only look like a middle-aged woman trying to look younger. Instead, choose a face-flattering cut, and use trendy products to lift your hair at the roots, forming a loose frame for your face and eyes.
Simple styles are sexy. If you've long hair, pull it back into a loose ponytail, leaving a few wispy tendrils to escape around your earlobes and forehead. And while short hair is naturally simple, make it sexier by adding a mousse hair wax to add a wave or an edgy, messy flip.
A layered haircut lends understated elegance. Blow dry your layers while using your fingers instead of a brush, and your layered look will be loose and sexy.
Consider the shape of your face while working with your hair, and accentuate your best features. While long bangs can be sexy, concealing a large forehead, you'll want to make sure they don't hang into your eyes if your eyes are your best feature. A sexy hairstyle will draw the eye to your best features, while playing down your least flattering features.
If you are plus sized, you'll want a more complex hairstyle. When people look at you, you'll want them to notice your face and hair first, and your body last. Plus sized women can sport a sexy ballerina bun, but make sure there are wispy tendrils framing your face and neck, and embellish the bun with jeweled clips or stylish hair sticks.
