hair-do is very becoming

Can the adjective 'becoming' be used refering not to a dress or a hat, but to a hair-do?
For example:
- You have a new hair-do?
- Yes.
- Very becoming! (meaning "it becomes you")

    Sorry for this thread then :eek:
    Thank you.
    No need to apologize. :)

    Your question was just fine!

    I would add that young people probably wouldn't use this word. It's considered a bit old-fashioned.

    So if you want to be considered more in touch with what's popular, you probably wouldn't want to say it that way.

    Still, there's nothing wrong with your word and the usage you asked about.

    Hope this helps, Ptak.
