Do you want to look younger, prettier, and more feminine? If so, try changing your hairstyle! There’s no easier way to improve your appearance.
What are the best male to female haircuts and styles?
I’m glad you asked!
The most flattering and feminizing hairstyles are ones that help soften strong facial features (like a prominent nose or jaw) while making your eyes and lips pop!
Read on to discover the top 6 crossdressing and transgender hairstyles. Note that these style tips work for both wigs and natural hair.
1. Side Swept Bangs
Bangs are a great option since they draw attention to your eyes while hiding a prominent brow ridge. Bangs also make you look cute and youthful!
Straight bangs can highlight angular facial features, so go for soft, side swept bangs instead.
Layered hairstyles tend to be much more flattering than hair that’s all one length. Face framing layers soften your features and add texture and volume to your hair.
3. Soft Waves
Soft waves are super sexy and feminine. Waves also add volume to your hair, making thin hair appear fuller.
Most trans women and crossdressers look great with full, wavy hair that balances out stronger facial features and a larger body frame.
4. Shoulder Length Hair
Shoulder length hair is the best option for most women, including transgender women. Hair that’s too short can look masculine, while hair that’s too long can drag down your face after a certain age.
Shoulder length hair is very feminine and flattering. Additionally, it helps conceal a stronger jaw or thicker neck (if these are issues for you).
5. Side Parts
Middle parts can be tricky since they make your face look longer and highlight your nose and chin. Side parts are more flattering and can be worn by anybody with any face shape.
Finally, don’t forget about color! Highlights brighten your face and look softer than a single block of color. Generally speaking, your highlights should be two shades lighter than your base color for the most natural look.
Make everyday a good hair day!
Nothing can boost your appearance like a fabulous hairstyle. As you can see from the tips above, the key is to think SOFT – soft cuts, soft texture, and soft color – to balance and feminize your features.

I have the same issue girlfriend… Not a problem!! (you look great–run with it!!)
I always wore a wig with just one color and finally tried a wig with highlights. I loved the look. It feels so feminine.
Hi everyone, I’m Debbee.
I’m 58, I came out as trans last year. I have been growing my hair out from a number 1 skinhead crew cut, to the length it is today. Yes i need a good cut now.
This picture is from earlier in the year. I color my hair every 6 weeks to hide my grey. I love reds and purples. I tried blonde , but that did not work for me.
I have many wigs, but i have not worn them, since i came out publicly.
I will probably go for a side swept , layered look, keeping a shoulder length when i have a cut.
Take care .
Congratulations on your “coming out”. I know how difficult it can be at times especially at a later age. I began hrt and electrolysis when I was 59, five years ago. Thank you for your uplifting comment.
I’ve always heard that those born male have higher foreheads and with surgery the hairline can be lowered. The facial feminization surgery process looks scary but the results look fantastic. But alas, I’m too chicken for all that! Bangs make hair too short for a ponytail. So I just flaunt my big forehead 🙂 it’s all good.
