Useful tips for men: how to look taller?

Updated on July 30, 2012

If you are reading this hub, chances are that you are average or slightly below average in height. Men tend to think that they are more masculine and attractive if taller. Lots of women are attracted to taller men. However, you can easily add inches to your height when you follow the tips in this hub. Hope you will find this hub useful and give these tips a try.

Hairstyle is very important because it can easily add inches to your height. For average or slightly below average males, you have to opt for short hairstyles instead. Medium or long hair will hide your neck and weigh you down. Furthermore, hairstyles that are higher at the crown can easily boost your height. You should also keep the sides trimmed and short. By following these rules, you will effectively lengthen your face and body at the same time.

Height increasing shoes for men are a blessing for average or slightly below average height males. Some guys choose ridiculous heels when they are first introduced to these shoes. This is the wrong approach. Although most height increasing shoes are hidden and can be out of sight through wearing longer pants, women with sharp eyes can still easily see the difference. Instead of going for shoes with five inches hidden heels, you should go for something more reasonable (2-3 inches are the best). When you first start wearing these shoes, you will have to start with a low heel. One inch is a good starting point because hidden heels are not very comfortable.

Proper exercise is very important for average or below average height males. Taller people can gain some weight and look slightly overweight. Average or slightly shorter men will look very round with some weight gain. The round look is not flattering for short men because it makes you look even shorter than you actually are. Short people have to keep their bodies lean with small muscles to look good and proportionate. Keep in mind that muscles should always be proportionate to your height.

There are several fashion tips for shorter men. First and foremost, you will have to choose thin vertical stripes for shirts. These stripes will make you look taller and leaner. One color from head to toe will also make you look slightly taller. As a short men, you have to keep in mind about proportion. Small patterns will look good on you. Big Hawaii themed shirts will swallow your figure and make you look smaller than you actually are. To look your best, you will have to find clothing that fit just right. Shirts or pants that are too long make you look short while things that are too short make you look awkward. You can also get your clothing tailored to fit your body better.

Men seldom accessorize themselves like women. However, there are a few important things that you should keep in mind. Man's watches tend to be on the bigger side; you will have to find less bulkier versions to look great for your figure. Other accessories such as hats, scarves and necklaces should be a size smaller. You will always have to remember about proportion and ask your trusted friends for their honest advice.

      OK Thank you for the info. I usually shop in the boys department to find the right fit for trousers, otherwise my clothes are too baggy in the wrong places. Will try the other points.

      Peace +

      Thanks for the tips. Wearing a shirt with vertical strips also helps to look taller, even if there is no change in your actual height. You way of standing and walking is also important.

      There is some truth in this line of thinking. However, history tells us that men who have been short, have been successful in several fields.
