Why don't girls like guys with long hair, I think it's hot just look at nathan from kings of leon!

All my friends hate it, personally I think it's gorgeous. Sorry if this question is asked often, hope not.

What Guys Said 6

  • I have about 5" so just under shoulder length I have thick hair and it's a little curly I were it messy with products so it's not fuzzy and get complements daily approach regularly by men and women. I where it confidently and as far as I can tell the only people who actually don't like it are over 40. Even then I still have got compliments from my moms friends.

    You have to keep it clean use conditioner and product get regular trims just like if it's short so you don't get split ends. If I do all that and a girl doesn't like it still chances are she's to uptight for me anyway.

  • I had shoulder length hair, I got it cut off and got a lot of sh*t from female friends who really liked it. Now they like it short.

    So the answer is, girls have no idea what they like :)

  • My girlfriend loves my longish hair, I know a lot of girls that love longer hair, maybe it's just part of the culture where you live :) nothing wrong with what you like, just think, if your friends dislike it then more guys to pick for yourself ;)

  • as soon as I get the chance I'll post a picture on here of me with hair... you tell me what you think.. I loved it... some other people loved it some people hated it... it's all personal preference

  • I used to have long hair (which I took care of a little TOO well) and also had another friend who did and he summed it up pretty well. Women either love it or hate it. There isn't really a "in between" for liking guys who have long hair, you either really do or really don't.

    • I completely agree

    • I kinda disagree. it depends on how well the guy wears the hair, like any hairstyle. long hair can be really sexy or it can be really gross, but it varies from person to person with me. some guys look good blond, others look good brunette. it's a matter of finding the right fight, I guess.

  • Well my hair looks just like Aragorns from Lord of the Rings, I don't seem to get any complaints. I think there is a stereotype against long hair, you get grouped in the hippie/dirty category. But I dress nicely and do cool things with my hair (put beads in it, ect) and I like it way more than short hair personally because it is a serious attention grabber. I've had girls come up to me and initiate conversation because of my hair, it really stands out. I think in general long hair will work against you but if you have a great personality and can pull it of it will work wonders.

    • Me too! :D and like JoshNumber I may take care of it a bit to well =P

  • I love it!

  • some guys look good with long hair

    while others dont.

  • It depends on the guy. Some don't look bad with long hair, some do.

  • It really depends on the guy. I have a guy friend with long hair, and he looks horrible with it. Yet, Jason Isaacs looks terrific with it (that would be Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter, for those of you who don't know who he is). He has long hair in tons of movies, and always pulls it off perfectly.

  • only some guys look good in long hair. maybe they just haven't seen one who looked REALLY good in long hair!

  • Guys with long hair get a bad rep sometimes. They are seen as grungy and unclean or as too feminine. There's a certain way a guy has to carry himself in order to pull off long hair. Same goes for a guy trying to pull off baldness or a hair color change. It has to suit the guy and he has to be comfortable in his own skin when he has a certain style. hair works like clothes or something. it has to fit.

    i look at guys like fabio link and I think 'geez, he looks gross' but then I look at guys like max hodges (TMZ) link and think 'omg, he's hot'

  • I don't know about other girls, but I personally love long hair. :D

  • less competition for you then I guess. I just think it either gets gross because they don't take care of it, or they take care of it better than I take care of my hair & that's not ok either...haha

  • Long hair on a guy is just too feminine to me. I like my guy to leave the straightener to me and I'll leave the hawk to him.

  • I just don't. Don't know why, but it's not attractive to me.

  • Personally I don't like a guy with long hair, even do some guys look really nice.

    I just think that it would take him longer to get his hair done than me or that he won't take care of it. I guess is different for everyone. I'm just more attracted to guys with short hair.

  • I like long hair on guys as long as it suits them and they keep it clean and neat.

  • It depends. Some guys look pretty sexy with about shoulder lenth hair, but personally anything longer than that is just .. not attractive to me.

    This is probablly as long as a guy should go, maybe an inch more if they can pull it off.


  • Long hair is so hot, no doubt.

    • Im a guy looking looking to grow the hair long

    • Lol you should, and keep it looking a little wild ahaha :)

  • I would die for a guy with long hair. I love them like that, way to express their ideas and thoughts through their body parts (I hope that makes sense)

    • Im a guy looking to grow the hair long

  • Lol if all your friends hate it and girls don't like it, then your idea of "gorgeous" is probably way off. :P

    It depends on how long it is. Viggo Mortensen's hair in Lord Of the Rings is about as long as I can take. If you get much longer, it starts to look like you're stuck in the 70's/hippie, scraggly, hobo-ish and just over all not clean/dirty. Not to mention, from a distance you might be mistaken for a girl. Also, long hair can send the message that you don't spend a lot of time staying clean, taking care of yourself or getting a monthly trim. Thus it comes off as gross.

    There are very few guys who can pull off longish hair. Personally, like I said, I don't think any guy should grow his hair out past his shoulders, if at all. Its tacky and unattractive. Also there may be some sort of psychological theory to this: girls like to see a guys face and eyes. If its obscured by hair, the guy may put off the vibe that he's hiding something and isn't honest, trustworthy or reliable.

    I suggest getting a cut that keeps your hair above your ears or at least close.

    • I think long hair shows they are unique and don't care what others think of them even if it isn't kept that 'well' it's still hot.

  • I like scruffy looking hair that looks a bit messy but I don't like hair past the shoulders, I usually like hair on the shorter side. I don't like the idea of being able to run my fingers through a guy's long hair, it's kinda weird to me but that's just what I think.

  • I agreeee with you! I Love Metalheads! and I'm a metal fan myself !

  • I think long hair on a guy looks dirty. I don't know its just not appealing to me. Sorry if you're a guy with long hair reading this, but you should shave it (not all the way, maybe Ryan Reynolds yuuummyyy) I guarantee that you will get more girls checking you out.

  • Hey, look on the bright side... if your mates don't share your taste in guys you shouldn't have to deal with any nasty fall outs over them! For me, it depends a lot on the guy. Some guys suit long hair, some guys suit short hair... If it suits them then it can look really hot. I go for someone on overall appearance, not a singled out aspect such as their hair length.

  • I think it really depends! I mean, in general, for guys are seen as lazy and carefree compared to girls. You always get this image of a group of guys burping and farting and drinking loads of beer- or in the olden times, killing other men. So long hair on guys kinda exacerbates this ideal because it seems the guy is too lazy to cut his hair which = naaasty. Plus, if the hair is long enough for the guy to be mistaken as a girl = naaaasty.

    But it could be sexy on a guy if you take care of it and have it styled or something. I think it shouldn't go any lower than shoulder length and should be layered. ;D

  • PLEASE tell me you're not referring to this guy... link

    He is pretty much my definition of ugly, sorry. I find guys with long hair look like uncleanly bums.

    My advice to any guy with long hair, is to shave their heads and donate their beautiful locks to cancer patients.

    • Ok that's not the best picture but he still looks hot otherwise.

  • The only reason I don't like it is because it makes it seem like the guy is spending a whole lot of time on his appearance, and that in itself turns me off. Imagining a guy standing in front of the mirror brushing his long luxurious locks? *gag*

  • Most of the guys I have met that have long hair hardly clean it and so it looks all greasy and horrible plus most of the time they do smell; I don't mean it nasty or anything, I'm just saying these are the kind of boys I have met with long hair. This is probably where the stereotypes all started is from these kind of unkempt guys.

    I think personally though it all depends on a persons hair type and face to what kind of hairstyles would look good on them; and then there is preference where one person may think a hair style looks bad and another would think it looks great. Then I suppose in some cases the person needs a good personality to go with the hairstyle too otherwise people may relate that hairstyle with a person who isn't very nice and then automatically not like the hairstyle.

  • I love guys with long hair. The guys I'm currently crushing on has super long hair and I LOVE it! That was one of the things that made him stand out. Plus it's like super jet black. It's gorgeous...But I think some people are still stuck in the "all guys should have nice neatly cut hair" mindset.

  • I like long hair, think ponytail look good too as long as it doesn't make the guy look girly and it suits him enough

  • hippies, fabio, cavemen.

    I just don't like guys having longer hair than me. It's not what I'd want to feel when I do things with them. It's just not appealing. I hate the look, but if you like, who the f*** cares what anyone else thinks?

  • i agree that it definitely depends on the guy, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. but long hair is really sexy when it suits him. and there are a lot of girls who looooove guys with a little bit of hair on their head. :D

  • It's ok on some people. It just depends on the person.
