It seems like pulling off the “cute” look comes naturally to some women. For those who have a harder time with that particular look, it can be bewildering trying to figure out how they are doing it.
The reason it’s hard to pinpoint is that it’s not just about finding the perfect shoes or styling your hair a particular way. It’s a vibe you send out, and that begins with your mindset.
Be yourself, even if there are parts of you that wouldn’t quite fit under the label of “cute.” In fact, some women recoil at the very idea of being “cutesy.”
But some women would love to be perceived as an adorable heart-melter. If this sounds like you, here are some handy tips for upping your “cute factor.”

How to Be Cute and Melt His Heart:
A smile is inviting and warm. It immediately lowers the defenses of anyone looking to approach you. Depending on how you do it, you can also infuse it with a real coquettish vibe.
2. Play with your hair
Have you ever watched an alluring actress in a film and then brought a picture of her to your hairstylist so you could adopt it? Hair is just sexy. Owning your own hair by playing with it is even sexier.
3. Be a little coy
Every girl knows how to sneak glances that are supposedly secret, but really you want him to know you’re looking. Looking away when he catches you, preferably with a little smile, comes across as delightfully coy.
4. Be a dork
It’s super endearing to be around someone who accepts who they are, quirks and all. If you’re obsessed with a dinosaur video game, or if you feel awkward talking to bank tellers – own it. Your “adorkable” traits are part of you.
5. Speak low and softly
Soft, low tones come across as sultry and pull a man in. Loud, aggressive vocals are grating. If you naturally talk pretty loud, keep that in mind when you’re going for the cute and flirty vibe.
6. Wear soft perfume
Have a signature scent that makes you feel like a million bucks when you dab it on your wrists. Rub your damp wrists on your neck, or behind your ears. These little hints of sweetness are tantalizing. Stay away from the strong, sharp, overpowering scents, these are repelling rather than inviting.
7. Be a natural beauty
Accentuate your best features with a light application of makeup. Sometimes just a dusting of blush and some mascara can give you a stunning, natural look. It’s fun to go bolder when you’re in the mood for it, but for the cute look, it’s best to keep it light, airy, and feminine.
8. Try not to fidget
Someone who is constantly fidgeting makes the people around them feel on edge. To be a calming presence, practice stillness. People are drawn to that kind of energy.
9. Dress in soft silhouettes
The texture and shape of your clothes can be hugely helpful in sending out a certain vibe. Wearing flowing, silky clothes will make you feel just as cute as you look.
10. Be positive
Positivity is contagious and magnetic. When someone has a fantastic attitude, you naturally want to be around them. This is a simple but effective way to draw others in.
11.Tone down your inner vixen
Being seductive has a time and a place, but it’s not super fitting when you’re aiming for cute. Put away the smoky eye and daring lingerie when you’re shooting for more adorable than ravishing.
12.Wear soft colors
Pastel, muted colors are your friend when you’re going for sweet. Darker, bolder colors like black and red will serve you better when you’re going for the siren look.
13. Try a soft, flow hairstyle
Feminine, relaxed hair should be the goal. Avoid tightly pulled-back pony-tails. Hair that is loose around your shoulders works well. You can also try braids. A small braid at the front of your hairline, or even two small braids pulled back over your flowing locks is a sweet and alluring look.
14. Don’t dumb yourself down
Being demure doesn’t mean dumbing yourself down. Faking incompetence or pretending you don’t know something is the opposite of attractive – it’s dull.
15. A sweet flush
For some girls, blushing can come annoyingly easily! If you’re not one of them, you can brush some light blush across your cheekbones. That lively, flushed look is very appealing.

16. Have fun
Laugh as much as possible. Look for the joy in anything you are doing. Having a lighthearted manner will make others want to be around you because it looks like you’re having a great time.
17. Embrace your shyness
If you’re not the most extroverted chick around, don’t feel like you need to pretend you are. It’s quite endearing when someone is shy.
18. Playfully tease him
A well-timed, gentle joke at a guy’s expense is a delightful surprise, particularly when you’ve been acting quiet previously. It catches a guy off guard and shows you are frisky. Another type of teasing is to be extra flirtatious. For example, you can keep returning your gaze to his lips while he is speaking. This will drive an interested man crazy because it indicates that his lips are on your mind.
19. Don’t be aggressive
Be thoughtful and restrained in your gestures. If you come across as aggressive, this will definitely be a roadblock to maintaining your “cuteness.”
20. Laugh like you mean it
Is there any better feeling (or sound) than genuinely laughing at something? Don’t be stingy with your laughs. Some people take pride in being hard to make smile – these people are no fun to be around!
21. Let your cuteness shine
Everybody has cute characteristics. Instead of trying to adapt them into something else you think people might want, embrace them.
22. Crack jokes
A great sense of humor is one of the best qualities a person can have. Being able to laugh at yourself is a particularly wonderful skill. Don’t shy away from cracking jokes or coming up with silly bits.
23.Be a good listener
Make a man feel worth being heard by listening closely when he speaks. Be present in the conversation.
24. Leave him cute little notes
Slips notes in his wallet, car, under his pillow… anywhere that he’ll stumble across them. A simple “I love your smile, have a great day” can make a guy feel truly appreciated. You could also make them a little cheekier and give him a chuckle. For example: “You’re wearing those jeans like you’re doing them a favor. Looking forward to tonight!”
25. Relaxed body language
Maintain a relaxed posture. This will not only make you appear comfortably confident, it will also make you feel that way. Our body language can change how we feel about ourselves. Avoid rigidity – smile and breathe easy.
