"Oh, she is a sassy one! The woman with the bob loves to zip around town getting things done. This girl is a Pointy Toe skimmer all the way." (Stuart Weitzman Fever Heels, $295).

Bed Stu Cobbler Annabelle Tan Rustic BootsPixie cut

"Pixie cut girls are not afraid to play with their femininity and are bold enough to cut their hair almost entirely off! These ladies look fab in a workingman's boot, rocking a microphone or simply standing up for themselves at a PTA meeting. But they also have another, sweeter side as well — so depending on their mood, you might catch them in a ballet flat."(Bed Stu Cobbler Annabelle Tan Rustic Boots, $220).

Giuseppe Zanotti Stiletto SandalBone straight

"Bone straight hair is deceptively high maintenance. She might have a bohemian look, but believe me, it has a few hours of straightening behind it or maybe even the Brazilian treatment. She's smooth, she's sleek and she is stiletto girl!"(Giuseppe Zanotti Stiletto Sandal, $601).

Roxy Kenya Thong Sandal,Long wavy

"She's footloose and fancy free — this is a woman who loves her classic thong sandal. She might be a masseuse at an upscale spa or a boho chic urbanite who summers in the Hamptons. Either way she is carefree, relaxed and ready to dive into her next creative endeavor."(Roxy Kenya Thong Sandal, $34).

Repetto BB Salamander Ballet FlaMedium curl

"This girl is definitely a ballet flat girl. She's pulled together and often tucks her locks into a high ponytail, with the perfect waves swinging down her back. If she has locks on the shorter side, she tucks them behind her ears in fierce concentration or when she's excitedly chatting with her many friends."(Repetto BB Salamander Ballet Flat, $310).

Very cute, I never would have thought to match my shoes to my hairstyle, but I like it!

I never thought about that shoe can match to our hair style. It is kind of a new lesson that I learn.

I love the idea of matching your shoes to your hair. And these pairings match perfectly! Without even seeing the combination I can picture the hairstyle with the matched shoe. I think my favorite is the pump paired with the bob. It is so perfect.
