Every woman's been through it before. Those days are long over if you're ready to revamp your style and turn everyone's' heads. No matter what your hair color, skin color, eye color, or body type, you too can become sexier today. Steps Getting the Look 1 Decide what kind of sexy you want to be. There are two kinds of sexy: By conforming to one or the other, you'll be attracting people that are looking for different things.

This kind of sexy tends to not get you very far when you're young, since often people aren't looking for their future spouse at 16, but it can be crucial to attracting good, stable people when you're an adult.
Confidence is the number one most sexy quality. Even people who don't have much to offer in the looks department can still manage to come across as sexy if they balance confidence with other attractive qualities, like personality, charm, and humor.
