Find A 2008 Hair Style To Compliment Your Body

Apr 21, 2008
When choosing a hairstyle, you probably look for one that will flatter the shape of your face and the condition and texture of your hair. What you may have forgotten to consider, however, is your body type. Just like the right outfit and the perfect accessories can make or break your appearance, the right hairstyle can similarly make you look heavier, thinner, frumpy, sexy, sleek, or scary. Well, hopefully not the last one, but you get the point. Your hairstyle says a lot about who you are, but if it is the wrong hairstyle for your body type, then it will likely send the wrong message and not flatter you at all.

If your body is slim and straight, the goal should be to add depth and curves whenever possible, which means that medium length, chunkier or wavier hair styles are best, as are long, layered bangs and angles. Just remember not to go too big, which will make your hair disproportionate to your body, and that hair that is too long, too straight, or too sleek will emphasize your boyish figure and may look masculine.

If you have a curvy, full body type, your best bet is a layered, medium length cut that will help to camouflage and soften extra weight. Side parts and bangs add a soft, complimentary look as well. Just be sure to stay away from hair that is too short and close to the head as well that hair that is very long and very full.

If you have a petite body type, you should strive to keep your hairstyle smooth, neat, and sleek, which means experimenting with medium to short layers and angles, including height at the top, or crown of your head. Of course, too short hair will make your head look a little on the small side, and hair that is too long can overpower your small frame. You should also avoid anything that might be considered cute, unless of course, that is the look that you are going for. The cute category includes high ponytails, pigtails, braids, etc.

Finding the perfect hairstyle for you may take some time, but the results will be worth it when you see just how flattering the right look can really be. Ask your stylist for some ideas, and do a little research on your own to find some styles that you like before your consultation appointment.
