Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 2:9-10 I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or god or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. 

It is not unscriptural for a woman to want to be attractive.  Today, however, to what degree should women take this advice about fixing their hair or wearing gold, pearls, or expensive clothes?  Paul was not prohibiting these things; he was simply saying that women should not be drawing attention to themselves through these things.  Modesty and decency are the key words.  All women would do well to remember that beauty begins on the inside.  A gentle, modest, loving character gives a light to the face that cannot be duplicated by even the best cosmetics.  A carefully groomed and well-decorated exterior is artificial and cold unless inner beauty is present.

Lets Bring it Home:  The general rule for both women and men emphasizes that both behavior and dress must express submission to and respect for Jesus Christ.  For women, when a guy looks at you and the first place he looks at is the body, and not your face? Maybe you need to take a look at the way you are dress.
