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:

  • Age appropriate.
  • Simple.
  • Elegant.
  • Flattering to your face shape.
  • Proportionate to your body structure.

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.

Here are some more tips for creating sexy hairstyles:

  • Use shine serum to create sexy shiny hair.
  • Use new Velcro rollers for fast curls and waves.
  • Instead of a perm, use sea salt spritzer to create sexy waves.
  • Shampoo your hair less often and refresh product from the day before with a water mister.
  • When creating a loose bun, finger comb your hair instead of using a brush.
  • Play with temporary hair color until you find shades highly complimentary to your skin tone.
  • Texturize your hair with bold or soft layers for a "just off the beach" sexy look.

What is a sexy hairstyle? Well, the answer to that question varies with each person and their own opinions. However, most people agree that if you can find a fresh, age-appropriate hairstyle with which you are comfortable – and can wear confidently – then you can feel sexy.
