Gettin' Naughty - Sexy Hair

How our hair looks has a great deal to do with our confidence and self-esteem. All it takes is hair issues to make your day horrible. We spend tons of money on stylists and products. We cut, dye, bleach and tease our hair. Slather on all kinds of expensive goop then fry it with the extreme heat of blow dryers, straightening and curling irons, and hot rollers. The slightest of changes in your hair style and make you feel and look completely different.

Chances are if you have straight hair, you try to make it curl and if you have curly hair, you try to make it go straight. Once in a while, we get frustrated with the whole struggle to beautify our hair and go a little crazy and break out the scissors, or really freak out and shave it all off like Britney. (Her issues are an entirely different, lengthy discussion)

Hair is one of our sexiest assets. We toss is over our shoulder and flip it around when flirting, let it hang over our eyes for a coquettish look. Contrary to what you may think, it doesn’t have to be long to be sexy, but I can almost guarantee that if you don’t think your hair looks sexy, you won’t feel sexy.

So how do you get gorgeous locks? Here are a few tricks to try.

Curl it – Long wavy hair is both sexy and always in style. If you’ve got the length, adding the curl is easy and doesn’t have to be permanent. You can have relaxed, natural, sexy waves in only ten minutes with inexpensive sponge rollers. Wrap up the ends of your hair and use a little hairspray.

Shine it – A dab of non-oily pomade cream or shine enhancer gel can give your locks a healthy, vibrant luster and its quick. Just rub the product between your hands then onto your hair for immediate polish and texture. This gives short hair hold and sexy definition while still looking natural.

Pick a side – Simply parting your hair to the side is an easy way to add a hint of sexy bad girl attitude.

Flip it – Brush ends upward and use a bit of styling gel to hold it there. Don’t get excessive with it, just tease the sides and back in a new direction to add a bit of asymmetry. This modern and fresh look works especially well with medium to long bob cuts.

Pin it – Need fast sex appeal to go out after work without a lot of fuss. Your hair doesn’t have to be long to create a romantic upsweep. Leave a few loose tendrils around your face so it doesn’t look severe. Make sure to use a pretty clip, combs or even sexy hair sticks.

Extend it – Clip in a human hair extension to get those long, sultry locks without all the maintenance.

Go big – Get a volumizing spray or root lifter. Towel dry hair, then flip your head upside down and lightly spray the roots. Comb it through to the ends. Dry the roots with your head upside down, using your fingers to lift the roots away from your scalp. Turn over and blow dry sections using a big, round brush, first hot, then finish wish a blast of cold or let cool for a few seconds before unwinding the brush.

Fluff it – To get that windswept look fast and easy with dry hair, flip head upside down and brush it out. Flip your head upright, finger comb and lightly spray with hairspray. For a less dramatic effect, add a bit of pomade to your fingertips and run it through your hair to soften the styling.

No matter how you style it, were it with pride and use that asset to your best advantage!

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope someone special gifts you with a bit of romance!

Or use the flamethrower.

No?

True that if our hair isn't to our taste on a given day, that day is pretty much in the garbage.

And men's hair is just as important. I LOVE long hair on a dude. Probably because I spent so long around army guys with crew cuts. Or, conversely, I love a shaved head. Vin Diesel makes a smooth head look so damn sexy.

Ohh, there I go again, drooling over The Diesel Man. :))

I'm in a constant battle with my hair. It's naturally culy which I like most the time but it's got a mind of it's own. I need to find a style that's perfect for me and my face and I just haven't found it yet. *sigh*

So, I thought for sure you were going to mention something naughty and delicious, like wrapping your hair around your man's, errr, nether part (I don't know what is okay or not okay to say on this blog so I'll keep it clean, lol) and stroking. I know some men love that feel of hair stroking them. *bg*

Flamethrower, huh. I'm not into being bald. LOL! It is sexy on men though, especially The Diesel Man! *grabbing drool rag*

I can get really naughty with any subject. There's lots to be done with long hair. *g*

Flamethrower! Now that's an idea! lol I guess I'm going to add--if you don't have hair you can "do" something with, like mine, then remember regardless what style it is, if it is curly or straight, thick or fine, hair feels wonderful when it is dragged across the skin ... one of the ultimates in sensuality regardless of style. Or in my case, no style. VBG

Oh damn! Did you have to mention Diesel? (turn on the ac)
I'm having my hair washed and styled so I don't look like a total dick at my free dinner for two prize. I know I'll look a thousand times better than if I did it myself.

Men just love to play with our hair. My husband always runs his hands through it and strokes it.

It does get pretty warm in the summer underneath it, bu that's what scrunches were made for!

I hvaen't owned a hairdryer in about 25 years. LOL

My hair won't hold a curl even with a perm--tried it about 20 years ago. My hair is long and straight. I wouldn't know what hair product to use to save my life. :-)
