Playing with hair is more of an involuntary sign of attraction. Women love curling, twirling, or simply throwing their hair off their shoulders to draw your attention there. The main reason behind this is to expose the soft flesh of her neck as well as her face. It makes a female more alluring.

Exposes her neck

The neck is one of the vulnerable parts of the female body as it contains the jugular vein. In a dangerous or uncomfortable situation, people (especially ladies) would not want to show much of it. Women tend to expose their necks when feeling safe and comfortable. Check if she brushes her hair to the side or tilts one shoulder forward and down.

Makes eye contact

It could be tricky to explain as many people tend to register attention by keeping eye contact. However, it is different if a female makes eye contact while occasionally stealing some glances on your lips. She might be thinking how your lips would feel on hers. If her pupils are larger, that would be a sure sign of flirting and attraction. Again, when you look at her, and she realizes it, she'll draw her eyes away, but with a slight blush in her cheeks.
