Style From Head to Toe

Developing a personal style

There are many ways to create a personal sense of style that is unique to you. Every woman’s haircut says a lot about her personality, no matter how simple or wild & crazy it might be. And how you dress says even more, although less so if you are required to wear a uniform for school or work. But if you do have to wear a standard outfit, there is almost always some way to modify the style or include a flash of color that can make any outfit yours. Even wearing the same clothing every day (like Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg) tells the world that you have better things to do than spend your time on fashion. But besides the fashion decisions that everyone makes (except maybe a Marine boot camp recruit) there are many more creative style choices you can make to personalize your look.

Men’s Style

For men, one choice is how to grow your facial hair. A clean shaven man spends the time to maintain a sleek look, while someone with a James Harden beard is making an entirely different statement. A man’s watch also says something about him – whether he has a simple Casio, a classic Breitling, or a sporty Garmin.

Women’s Style

​Women have more options in most facets of how to change their appearance. There are a variety of makeup products that can highlight facial features or cover up perceived flaws. Earrings, necklaces, and other jewelry are other common accessories. While men increasingly wear some jewelry such as rings or bracelets, it is far more socially acceptable for the ladies, especially for a wider variety of styles and materials. A handbag is another frequently used way to express a sense of style or prestige. And although females rarely have beards, they do have a range of choices to make about styling all the hair below their scalp.

Swimsuit season style

In the US & Canada, as well as an increasingly large percentage of Western Europe, most women don’t let their armpit or leg hair grow, unless they are single and staying covered up during the cold winter. Waxing and shaving are two of the most common ways to remove body hair, while laser hair removal and depilatory creams are also an option. These hair removal options are also available for that most sensitive body hair – the pubic hair. While in the early 2000s a clean shaven or Brazilian wax look were very common, now in the 2010s full bushes are making something of a comeback. One popular compromise is keeping your pubic hair neatly trimmed or shaved around the edges to keep it from sticking out of your panties or swimsuit, while leaving enough that you don’t have a pre-pubescent look. A handy tool to maintain this look is a good bikini trimmer. Many of the better bikini trimmers include an adjustable guard to get the hair length to your liking, as well as a razor to completely shave other areas.
