Hairstyles For Your Body Shape

Knowing your body shape can help you choose your hairstyle.

  • Pear-shaped women should go for big, bouncy styles that will even out your shoulders and hips.

  • For those of you with athletic builds, choose looser styles to add softness.

  • For the hourglasses out there, anything goes but naked bigger is always naked better.

  • A fringe can frame come-to-bed eyes – the trick is choosing a cut that complements your body shape.

  • A lightly-layered fringe adds volume around the face: perfect for pear-shaped girls.

  • Busty babes can handle heavy bangs that draw attention down the body: perfect for showing off that killer cleavage.

  • For the more athletic frames with the bone structure to match cut in blunt bangs to highlight those cheekbones.

  • Sexy glossy hair is key to looking good naked because it gives the impression of good health, grooming and body confidence. To make you hair really shine, it's all about moisture so make sure you condition you hair every time you wash it and use a conditioning mask once a week.

  • To get a salon-style blow dry, rough dry your hair or leave it do dry naturally until it’s about 80%-85% dry. Then start styling. It's crucial that you dry your hair in small sections at a time rather than in large lumps. If you haven't got time for a wash and blow dry, then use a good dry shampoo to give your hair a quick makeover.

  • Elfin girls are the best for carrying off catch-me-if-you-can short hair. Sex kittens can go for a striking sixties bob and adding bronze highlights will flatter every skin type.

  • Curls are definitely on their way back. Petite girls like Hollywood actress Thandie Newton keep their curls tiny but untamed. Tall girls like Desperate Housewive's Marcia Cross can opt for tumbling curls. While those of you with hourglass figures can pump up the volume with big curvaceous curls.

  • For summer hairstyles, choppy crops are great for a style that's quick drying straight out of the sea. Layered mid-length styles work well tied back for bathing and are easy to glam up with minimum effort away from the beach.
