An extension to the hair on the scalp, such as an afro extensions, can also help to create a more defined look.
“For women, afros are the extension of the hair,” says Beverly Cavanaugh, MD, a dermatologist at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
“Afros look more feminine, but they’re not really meant for women.”
The longer extensions provide more coverage, so a hairless look is possible.
“It’s the right extension for you, but it won’t look the same for everyone,” says Cavanaugh.
Some women prefer longer extensions for the extra length and the more defined shape, while others find them less comfortable and uncomfortable.
A hairpiece that doesn’t need to be used is another good option for those who like to have a longer-lasting hairstyle.
“If you’re not into extensions, you can go with a hairpiece,” says Dr. Cavanaugh’s colleague, Dr. Joanne Zabriskie, an assistant professor of dermatology at The University of Illinois.
Some hair extensions can also be purchased in different styles, like “braid” or “trim.”
The different hairstyles can give you the perfect look and are great for women with longer hair or those who have more length.
Another great option for women who prefer shorter extensions is the “pigtail,” which is a shorter extension, typically used to create the illusion of an undercut.
“The pigtail is a natural extension of hair, so it works for men and women equally,” says Zabhopie.
“With a shorter hairpiece, it can look unnatural, like a pompadour or bob haircut.
It’s not the best choice for women because it can be uncomfortable.”
Another hairpiece for women that may help you achieve a more feminine look is the eyebrow.
“You can have a long and a short eyebrow,” says Rhea Wurth, MD and clinical assistant professor at The Duke University Medical Center.
“There are many different ways to do it, but the longer one can create a fuller look.”
Wurh says eyebrow extensions can be used for men as well, but for women they are less natural and should only be used if they are the right length.
“We recommend eyebrow extensions only if you have a shorter length,” says Wurk.
“And if you’re unsure if a longer eyebrow will work for you or not, ask your doctor.”
Some women also prefer hairclips for their hair extensions.
“Clip hair extensions are great,” says Traci Storch, MD.
“They can be worn over a hair tie or over your hairpiece.”
Hairclips can also add an additional dimension to your hair and give it a more interesting look.
Some people prefer the look of a natural bun, while other people prefer a more formal hairstyle, like an Afro hairstyle or a ponytail.
“Women like the look [of] a bun,” says Storcch.
“I can get some men to like it because I have a natural hairline.”
“You want to keep it short,” adds Storck.
“A natural hairstyle is shorter, more defined and can be styled easily.
If you’re in the middle of a haircut, you want to add length.”
Other tips for adding length to your look include keeping your hair length consistent, adding a bit of shine, and keeping your natural shape, according to Dr. Storcy.
“Do you want a long hair or a natural look?” says Dr Rochina Sotomayor, a professor of cosmetic surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.
“Your natural hair will have a different shape, texture and volume,” says Sotomays.
“To make your natural look, it will need to look more defined.”
Women are more likely to be attracted to natural hair styles than men.
“Most women have more natural hair than men do,” says Dottie A. Coyle, MD , professor of plastic surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“That’s why I like the natural look.”
“A woman is most attracted to men’s hair because they are more flexible, so they can bend it,” says Tania Coyle-Rasch, MS, a cosmetic surgeon and associate clinical professor of surgery at New York University School of Dentistry.
“When men have straight hair, it tends to fall out more.”
Coyle adds, “Men with longer, thicker hair are more appealing to women because their hair is longer and thicker.
You can really have a beautiful natural look with longer or shorter hair.”
What to wear for the perfect updo Hair extensions and hairpieces are often more comfortable for women than for men, so some of the best options are for women.
“Many women wear extensions or hairpieces because they have a tighter, more formal look,” says Jessica Kwon, MD .
“The way you wear a hairline is important. A straight
