Who knew that wearing a certain colour could make such a difference in your level of attractiveness? A study found that women loved it when men wore red and the same goes for men finding women more attractive in red. Men also find it attractive when women wear red lipstick.

2. Demonstrate your kind side

One of the easiest ways to look more attractive is to demonstrate the good side of's not all about looks after all! People who are perceived to be good and kind enjoy the "halo effect", meaning that their kindness helps make them look more physically attractive.

3. Fresh haircuts are key!

"As you discover more about who you are and achieve different milestones in your life and career, you should make sure the hair still suits you,"
expert Mindy Green explains. Your haircut says so much about your personality, and hair trends change so it is important that your hair reflects who you are on the inside.

4. Highlight the left side of your face

A lot of people have a 'favorite' side, and most people prefer their left side over their right. Turn your head slightly to the right to show off your left side, especially in pictures to showcase your best side - see how that makes you feel and if you notice any difference.

5. Travel in groups - the cheerleader effect

If you've ever watch How I Met Your Mother, you'll know about the 'Cheerleader effect' and it's actually legit as well! Studies have shown that people typically look more attractive when they're in groups rather than when they're on their own.

6. Fill the brows

Eyebrows are the frames to your face, thin brows were the in thing in the 90s but bolder ones make you look younger and more attractive. If you learn to fill your brows in correctly, they can really make a difference to your face! Keep them natural looking but defined!

7. Sunglasses should be your favourite accessory

There's a reason why celebs wear sunglasses all the time. Experts say that there's science behind it - people tend to look more attractive when they're wearing dark shades because they make your face look more symmetrical, they add mystery and they apparently make you look cooler. You've just got to find the right pair for you!

8. Whiten your gnashers

The condition of someone's teeth is very often associated with their attractiveness. Lightening your teeth or making sure that any colour imperfections are changed will likely cause others to perceive your teeth as attractive and in turn perceive you as attractive.

9. Dress appropriately

"Always dress appropriately for the situations you're in,"
suggests stylist Patrick Kenger.
"This shows that you have intelligence by being able to put together something appropriate". 
Some say that you're never overdressed, everyone else around you is underdressed, however there is a line... don't ever cross it!

10. Always try to keep your arms uncrossed

This can become a bit of a bad habit for some people and it can make you look very standoffish. In 2016, a study was taken that showed people with an open posture were viewed as more attractive than those with their arms crossed - especially when first meeting someone.

11. Pick a signature scent

We've all got our favourite fragrance.
"There is an incredibly strong link between attraction and scent",
says the International Journal of Cosmetic Science. When you smell good, it can reflect how you feel on the inside, and it can remind those who are attracted to you about you when you're not around.

12. Always make eye contact

A quick and easy way to make yourself more attractive to people is to look at them in their eyes. In 2018, researchers confirmed that eye contact from someone good looking can actually activate reward centers in the observer's brain, making the person giving good eye contact even more attractive.

13. Add a pop of color to your makeup

Decided to add a pop of color to a basic look! : r/MakeupAddiction
imagesource: reddit
"Add some vibrancy with a pop of color. Clear skin, black mascara, and a killer red lip is sure to elevate any look."
says researcher Sandra Jones. Research even shows that red lips and darker colours of lipstick were perceived as more attractive that pink or nude. It's time to raid MAC cosmetics I think!

14. Legs 11

Victoria Secret limits its 'Victoria Angels' to stay at precise weight and height or get fire. Yet, its fashion show breaks view record of 100 billions. Leaving PSY style 3 laps behind. :

Studies have shown there to be a link between leg length in women and their perceived attractiveness. This goes for men too actually! In 2018, a study found that women view men as more attractive when they have longer legs than those with shorter muscular legs.

15. Get a sunless tan

imagesource: reddit
Women are apparently, "predisposed to finding darker shades of skin more attractive" but rather than going for the oompa loompa look and covering yourself with tan, get yourself outside for a few hours during summer & catch some rays. But don't forget to get your SPF on of course!

16. Think about skipping your shaving routine

I finally decided to get a saeery razor a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! It's amazing since I don't shave my legs often and normal razors get clogged pretty fast
imagesource: reddit
According to a study taken in 2016, women
"find facial hair more attractive than a clean shaven face." 
A bit of stubble was voted most attractive overall. Ditch the razor if you're one of those men who goes for the sharp and clean look and give yourself the chance to grow a bit of stubble.

17. And don't go overboard with your body hair grooming either

Do I trim my chest hair? How? : r/malegrooming
imagesource: reddit
Before you go wild this summer waxing, epilating and lasering all of that body hair off, you might want to rethink. A study recently showed that men with chest hair are viewed as more attractive by women that those with hairless bodies. Some men can't help not having much body hair - thats a different thing entirely, but if you're getting rid of your natural body hair...stop! Go au naturel!

18. SMILE!

People are naturally drawn to others who smile because it indicates happiness, confidence, and approachability. Smiling creates a positive and welcoming atmosphere, which can help to strengthen relationships with others and build new connections - in turn you just display happiness which makes you more attractive.

19. Always be clear about how you feel

This may not come as much of a surprise but if you're someone who can communicate your feelings well, then it instantly makes you more attractive to others. Studies show that the degree of attraction people feel directly related to how well they understood other people's emotions.

20. Get a dog?

This one actually makes sense! It may sound silly, but hear us out! It's been scientifically proven that men instantly look more attractive when they're holding or hanging out with their dog. How many times do you walk past a dog walker and instantly find them adorable when they have a cute dog with them? All the time!

21. Stop trying to look model thin - or look like something you're not!

Throwback to when Kate Moss was the most beautiful thing you'd ever seen except she's still the most beautiful thing I've ever seen n I wasn't even born in the 90s lmao :
imagesource: reddit
Times are changing, the heroin chic look went out the window after the noughties, but women always seem to be beating themselves up when they gain that extra bit of weight. Studies show that men aren't actually into that super skinny model look and it's been proven with the rise of curvy, beautiful women appearing on fashion campaigns and magazines.

22. Rock the dad bod

Men should not be self-conscious about their dad bods! In fact, they should embrace then! Be confident about that extra bit of weight, enjoy yourself, be healthy but don't stop yourself from having fun either. Yale researchers actually found that women prefer that bit of 'podginess' meaning those men with six packs are so 2006.

23. Wearing heels has been proven to make women more attractive to men

Heels can help make you look and feel a little sexier and it has been proven to make you look more attractive too. But why? Well, studies have found that when women wear heels, they appear more feminine, particularly when they walk in them. The addition of a heel can make your legs appear longer, adding to your attractiveness!

24. Keep your denim looking good - or upgrade it

The right pair of jeans can have an affect the way people perceive you.
"The baggy light wash jeans that you use for outdoor work won't cut it anywhere else,"

25. Show off your hips

According to Dr. Liza Egbogah, a health and wellness expert focusing on body and posture, "
good posture can boost our attractiveness to potential partners, helping to induce romantic attraction in potential mates." 
Good posture can actually help increase levels of testosterone which is the hormone associated with confidence.

"Black mascara is universally flattering,"
says expert Sandra Jones.
"No matter what the natural lash color may be, a quick coat of black mascara will open the eyes, lengthen and lift lashes, and define the eye shape." 
Even if you're not into wearing makeup, a lick of mascara will instantly open up your eyes.

29. Get the head tilt right

Standing with your feet shoulder width apart shows signs of virility and fertility and has been proven to be a huge turn on for women. Dating experts recommend using this pose in pictures for dating apps and other profiles to really catch someone's eye.

31. Get your body to a shape you feel happy with

image source:
Confidence is what makes someone immediately attractive - and you can't be confident if your body isn't the way you'd like it to be. What's important is getting to a size and weight you feel happy with -
what society tells you to be happy with! So focus on your own goals.

32. Wear clothes you feel comfortable in

image source:
It's amazing the difference that actually feeling comfortable in the clothes you're wearing can do. Wearing an outfit that's too small, too tight or something that's not your style is only going to make you shrink into yourself and not feel confident. Clothes that you feel 100% comfortable in are the key to looking and feeling attractive!

33. Wear monochrome colors

image source:
Wearing an outfit that's all the same color can actually make you look taller - which is more attractive to a lot of people! While you absolutely can't beat an all-black outfit for looking killer, you can wear a monochrome outfit in any color you fancy! It'll also look classy.

34. Walk with 'swagger'

image source:
This one is for the guys, because apparently if you walk with a bit of a 'swagger' it can be the same as a woman swaying her hips when she walks. Swagger is something like moving your shoulders and arms when you walk tall with your head held up... but don't be flapping your arms around too much!

35. Show off some arm skin

image source:
Some studies have shown that men are particularly attracted to long, bare arms as much as they are long legs. So the next time you're looking to show a bit more skin, think about wearing a sleeveless top instead of a short dress or skirt, and see how that makes you feel!

36. And show off your jawline, too

image source:
Although facial hair has been known to be attractive on men, the shape of a killer jawline is actually very attractive - and if it's hiding behind a bushy beard, nobody is going to be able to appreciate it! If you have an amazing jawline, consider going clean shaven to show it off!

37. Go for the 'hourglass' shape

image source:
One thing that's important to remember here is 'hourglass' doesn't mean 'skinny'. You can have an hourglass shape as a curvy plus sized girl. Not everyone has a natural hourglass shape, of course, but you can do what you can with tighter clothes and a belt cinched in at the waist to bring that bit in!

38. Stand up tall

image source:
Standing up straight, no matter your gender, oozes confidence and surety. Standing up straight is associated with youth, and it also gives off the sense that you're interested in what's going on around you with confidence, instead of being withdrawn. It'll also help you to look taller!

39. Don't look down at your phone

image source:
Apparently some men don't find it attractive when women look down at their phones all the time, especially walking around in public. You'll look more appealing if you ditch the phone and hold your head high, facing forward, to take in what's going on around you.

40. Wear contacts

image source:
Now there's obviously some debate about whether glasses or attractive or not - some people have a kink for them, but then the teen movies tell us that the 'average girl wearing glasses' is considered a Prom Queen just because she's taken her glasses off. So you might want to go for contacts instead.

41. Lean trumps muscles

image source:
Most guys think that what makes them attractive - and what women want - is huge muscles, but it's not the case. Some women might like muscles, sure, but the more preferred body type - if not the dad bod - is a more lean and toned physique without too much focus on looking like Arnie Schwarzenegger.

42. Wear brighter colors

image source:
The term 'peacocking' comes from a peacock attracting the attention of a making using its gloriously colorful feathers! And the same goes for people. If you want to appear more attractive and get attention more easily, opt for brighter colors that are going to better catch the eye!

43. Pull your shoulders back

image source:
We've mentioned about how standing tall and straight and avoiding slouching is more attractive, and pulling the shoulders back is key for this. Pulling your shoulders back by squeezing together the shoulder bones and rolling your shoulders back helps you stand straighter.

44. Surround yourself with attractive people

image source:
It's often said that to appear more attractive, you need to surround yourself with less attractive people - but it's not the case. This is because apparently, when looking at a group of people, it's all about the 'average' - so less attractive people can even you out to look more average. Being surrounded by attractive people means the 'average' is still attractive!

45. Don't wear clothes that are far too big

image source:
You don't have to wear skin tight clothes to be attractive, but if you wear clothes that are badly sized and fives times too big, it's just going to look odd and not attractive. It's better to go for loose clothing (if you don't want skin tight) that still has a fitted shape around your body type.

46. Mimic body language

image source:
When you're talking to someone, mirroring their body language could make you seem more attractive to them - so this is a perfect tip for a date! We don't mean mimic them to the point they think you're making fun of them, but more subtle things like resting your chin on your hand if they are while they're talking.

47. Pick your favorite features and accentuate them

image source:
Being more attractive can be as simple as accentuating what you already have! You need to pick your favorite parts about yourself (so hopefully all you've got!) and accentuate them. Love your eyes? Put on more eyemakeup! Love your hair? Do something with it! Love your hips? Wear hip-hugging clothes!

48. If you have to wear glasses, rimless are the way to go

image source:
Ah, the glasses debate continues! Apparently glasses can make people seem more intelligent, which is linked to attractiveness, but rimless is some form of compromise between glasses and contact lenses if you have to wear them! People with rimless glasses can also appear more trustworthy.

49. Put in some effort

image source:
You don't have to go completely overboard, we don't mean dress up in a ballgown for answering the front door. But taking care of yourself - like washing your hair regularly, keeping your outfits clean and even just brushing your hair - can make you more attractive because it tells people you have self-esteem.

50. Stop trying to attract someone

image source:
It may sound stupid, but we all know how it works when you go on a million dates, get dressed up every single day, to never find 'the one'. Then when you least expect it in your loungewear after you've popped out for some milk, you bump into your soulmate. Don't try too hard!
