WOMEN

What to Avoid: Short, pixie haircuts aren’t the best for tall, thin women because it gives little variety to your tall, straight body type. Also, long, super straight hair causes the same problem of elongating your already lengthy figure.

What to Do Instead: Hairstyles that add more body to your hair is what you want. This will flatter a slim face or figure. Try chin-length to medium length hair with some soft waves, which will add more dimension to your look. You can also go with chunkier hairstyles. Long bangs and layers also work well for tall, slim women.

MEN

What to Avoid: Spiky or tall hairstyles can add inches to your height and elongate your face. When tall and thin, it is better to have a hairstyle that compliments your body type instead of matches it.

What to Do Instead: Shorter hairstyles with a textured hair on top suits tall men quite well. Also, medium length hairstyles that fall to the eyebrows or ears can complement tall men as long as the hair doesn’t fall flat. These types of hairstyles look better with a bit a wave to your hair. The classic buzzcut goes well for almost anyone and provides a low maintenance option.
