Model Gisele Bundchen is one of the most gorgeous women ever in the history of the world and doesn't exactly need help looking hot. But there's a secret she uses to make her appear just a little more seductive (if that's even possible) that's so simple and easy that every single one of us can start doing right this second!
She plays with her hair. Seriously, that's it.
While looking through pictures taken of her on the set of a Black Cowboy music video (has anyone heard of them?), I noticed that in about half of them, she's fiddling with her locks--unning her fingers through them, twirling the ends and tossing her head around. So I consulted The Nonverbal Dictionary of Gestures, Signs & Body Language Cues and found that this is called "hair preening" and it's a sign of flirtation that makes the boys come a-runnin'. (Check out what other flirtatious moves real-life couples put on each other.)
I can't say it's shocking--when 'm in the presence of a dreamy guy, I instinctively start stroking my waves. But the fact that Giselle is using the move to look a wee bit sexier has now elevated it to a full-fledged tool of seduction. (Of course, there is a trick to it--you've got to be slow and relaxed about it so it looks sensual and not like a nervous twitch.) So excuse me while I go practice in front of a mirror for a few minutes...
What about you: Do you touch your hair when you're on dates? Have you been using this secret for years? Have you ever thought about it before? Do you think Giselle is just trying to draw attention to how pretty her hair is and I'm reading too much into all this? Let me know!
