Proportion - Sizing your Hair to Your Body

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

In this world of incredible variety, we humans come in all shapes and sizes. Tall, short, large, small and every combination in between. We each have our own body type that is part of who we are. It is quite obvious that one hairstyle is not for everybody. For a hairstyle to be flattering, it must fit in with our particular body type. There should be a sense of harmony and proportion.

These three ladies are lacking hair style/body type proportion.


To get a picture of your hair/body proportion, stand in front of a full-length mirror. Study the image that you see there. A three-way mirror is even better for a complete picture. Take an honest assessment.
If you are a small, thin woman, BIG hair doesnít create a believable picture. (Exception: In years that clothing designers are creating a wide shouldered look (as in shoulder pads) a slightly fuller hairstyle is permissible.)

It follows that a large woman should "plus-size" her hair to create more balance. Very short, close to the head, styles are easy to care for and are often very stylish, but thatís where the benefit ends for the large woman. They donít fit the picture.

Short women; high hair will not make you look taller. Tall women, very high hair is not for you either. In fact, very high hair is not particularly attractive on anyone.
Even when Ďbig hairí is in style, the height should not exceed the distance between the bridge of your nose and your hairline.

Refer to these articles to learn how to style your hair to be more in proportion to your body type.
