Advice from three of EMandLO.com's guy friends. This week they answer the following: "Short hair vs. long hair? We've heard porno stars give advice to women like "never cut your hair short", but then, they're porn stars. What's the real deal?"
Straight Single Guy (Mark Luczak): I truly run the gamut on this one. I dated a girl who was a competitive dancer since childhood and was always required to have her hair long uniformly with everyone else - she now keeps it super-short and she's adorable, cute as a button. I even had a long relationship with a girl who lost her battle with cancer - she was as beautiful to me when the radiation and chemo took her hair as she was when she still had her signature long, curly locks. But I gotta say I do dig the long hair for the most part. All done up to go with a formal ensemble, or held up with a pencil and ready to fall at a moment's notice, or just simply pulled back with a hair tie for comfort and convenience? Yes please! I'm a runner, so if I see a girl on the street with a pony tail bounding behind her, that sexy/sporty look really resonates with me. Put that pony tail through the back of a cap and couple it with a sports jersey, and it's a home run. So, while beauty can come in all cuts and styles, keeping it long gets my vote…by a [groan] hair.
Gay Single Guy (Daniel): I honestly think the question of hair length is secondary to general hair aesthetic - meaning, it's more important that one's hair has an appealing cut, shine, and feel. Think about all those makeover shows when Jane McDull-looks is unveiled at the end to her husband/boyfriend/oddly close brother and they marvel at the usually chopped off hair. See, these "before" women stopped caring about split-end maintenance, hot oil treatments, and, well, brushing. What should men think about a woman who doesn't even bother to take care of her own hair? But if you're already split-end free with a killer $150 cut and you just wonder what turns your mate on more - short or long hair - the only thing to do is ask him, "Honey, do you like my hair longer or shorter?"Read More »from Do Guys Always Prefer Long Hair?
