Hey, but you’re worth it! Holding such an important place in our grooming, it is vitally important to know what’s in and what’s out. Listed below are four of the hottest and sexiest styles that experts are predicting will rule through 2007 and beyond.

The business cut:

This look is popular with women who want it simple and all-business, yet elegant. Its popularity is due to the fact that it takes little effort to stay in place and is really easy to manage, be the length long or short. Secure your hair into a neat ponytail or a bun for that smart-n-slick look. With women making it big in the corporate world, this hairstyle gives a sexy edge to the serious CEOs. In short it’s smart, sexy, chic and practical. Now can you get a better combo than that? You can see it on Hillary Clinton, and the first lady, Mrs. Bush and if that’s heavy weight for you, checkout Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz and others sporting the practical and sexy look.

The Shaggy Look:

By far the most popular look this season, it’s definitely here to stay. This is for shoulder length to medium length hair that is styled to look messy, punky and sexy at the same time with lots ‘n’ lots of uneven layers and steps. It often combines cut-styles like layers, razor, and spikes to produce a fabulous outcome that gives you this just-out-of-bed look that is oh so hot this season.

However the secret to this is to not wash the hair too often as it will dry it out and make it lose its natural shape. With this hairstyle your hair should be well nourished and conditioned for the layers to fall well and get the desired look every time you wash your hair. Expert advice is to use lots of conditioners, leave-in serums for best results. Depending on your adventure quotient, use gels and mousse to get it messier and funkier. But if that’s not your cup of tea then just wash &, condition well, apply some serum when semi dry and forget about it. No combing, no brushing. Better still do this at night and when you wakeup, voila! The perfect out-of-bed look that’s absolute no fuss and yet an absolute head turner. For added funk go for crazy streaking in shades like chilli red, flame red, pink, carrot orange, violet, purple…the palette is all yours to choose from. And bet on it, it’ll turn more heads than miss goody two shoes.

Long, sexy waves: Go Shakira!

This is for the less daring ladies, who prefer to keep it subtle, sweet and sexy. For one thing, after ruling the roost for so long finally perms have bade farewell to us n made way for long, loose waves that is just the in-thing for those lucky damsels with long tresses. To get this look, just wash your hair with a herbal shampoo and let the water drip off and soak lightly and let it dry naturally without combing. When it dries it would give you this scrunched look, then spray some mousse and scrunch it up with your hands and there you are all set to rock the party. As a personal touch try using dainty hair pins for that funky, ornate look. So go ahead try it out add in your touch and transform into a new you.

The Side Part:

Classic and trendy, the diagonal bang is high fashion style and oh so in!!! It will take a sexy, rock or punk variation giving your hairstyle a really glamorous touch. This style will remain popular, with the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Meg Ryan and others sporting it with much poise. Now here’s my final piece of advice, keep your personality and lifestyle in mind while choosing the look, be free with your hairstylist, let him or her know exactly what you are looking for, avoid harsh chemicals as much as possible and last but not the least – carry it with confidence, and you would definitely make heads turn. So what are you dudettes waiting for? Create your own style and carry it with confidence and poise!
