MtF Hairstyle Tips & Tricks

Tip 1. Grow Out Your Hair

Grow your hair out to a length that allows you to wear a hairstyle that is cute and feminine. Subconsciously, hair is one of the first things people look at when accessing whether someone is male or female. Having the right hair length and style can work wonders in your passing ability. If you suffer from hair loss or balding, wear a wig in a cute hairstyle that you like. 

Tip 2. Wear a Cute Hairstyle Wig

If your hair is slow growing, get yourself a high-quality wig, in a style of your liking and learn how to wear it properly. When buying a wig, make sure to measure your head property to ensure you're buying the right fit. This can give you confidence, and help you pass much easier.

Tip 3. Wear Bangs

If you have a larger forehead, bangs can help to cover it and make you appear more feminine. Bangs are cute, super popular, and almost always in style. There are also a ton of ways to style bangs.


If you struggle with hair growth, don’t worry, you’re not alone. We will also recommend the best wigs for each hairstyle.
