Do you think girls with short hair get less attention?

Or does it not matter? If there are any girls who went from a long hair length to a short, please explain your experience.

  • I went from long hair to shoulder length hair. And I went from getting ridiculous amounts to being virtually invisible. Its ridiculous in itself. I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with men.

    When I wore my hair long men would stare at me constantly, say things at me, whistle, come up to me to tell me how stunning I was bla bla. I wore my hair long because I liked it not because of that, I didn't think at the time it was because of my hair? I didn't know why it was, I don't want to sound arrogant. I myself don't see myself as attractive or pay a great deal of attention to my looks, In fact, my looks rarely occur to me to be honest. I am me and that's it, but when you experience this daily, of course you're going to be aware of it!

    However, I have since cut my hair to shoulder length as its much easier! and have noticed that it has gone from insane male attention to about 2% and I am now invisible.

    I fail to understand how a woman can go from being starred at and hit on 24/7 to being invisible when nothing has changed but her hair?

    I am baffled. I still wear clip ins for volume and backcomb though and I dread to think what would happen if I ever left the house without any clips ins in my hair, with my extremely thin, flat hair. It all kind of makes you feel like crap.

  • There's only three women in the world who I've ever been attracted to with short hair: Halle Barry, I think Rihanna had her hair short at one point, and some random girl I saw at the supermarket. Usually though I just think it makes them look like a dude

  • hair length is not a consideration at all...for me. Unless you got it shaved or something I wouldn't worry.

  • How short are we talking? Short hair styled correctly can be incredibly attractive/cute/sexy. It also depends on the individual. Some girls can pull it off, some can't. Typically though, I do think that in general, guys do find longer hair more attractive.

  • Its just a matter of preference...if she is beautiful/attractive whatever word you want to use, the hair length is typically not a "deal breaker" you know?

  • Anything from a bob to navel can look good.

    Pixie cuts are not sexy.

  • For me that's true. There are many girls who attract my attention only if they have long hair and I have never seen them with short hair. When they cut their hair they lose their status of having always long hair (and they will never recover it, even if they grow it long again) and they don't have any other feature to attract my attention, so only short haired girls with other features that can attract my attention would do it.

  • It doesn't matter. Some guys like short hair, some guys like long hair. It's just a matter of preference.

  • Just went for a cut this afternoon...a shaggy crop that lands just past my ears at the front, curling out along the nape of the neck. Sassy enough to turn a few heads on the way out of the salon. ;-)

    Guess you just need to have a cut that suits your personal style. You'll rock whatever cut you have if you're confident that it's right for you.

  • No, you don't get less attention. I used to have REALLY long hair and got what I'd call "moderate" attention. I chopped it from b*tt-length to layered shoulder-length and a lot got more attention. I chopped it again about two years ago -- to a thick -5cm cut to let the natural curls, waves and highlights lose around my face -- I was just tired of all the maintenance that the long hair required. LOTS more attention...LOTS. I think it's just what happened to suit my face the best this whole time.

  • I don't know what you mean by short exactly, but I got more attention when I cut my hair a bit above my shoulders, it use to be a few inches past my boobs, then a few inches past my collar bone. I felt I was hiding behind my hair when it was longer, now it shows off my face more, and I'd much rather get attention for my face than my hair

  • i always had a long, straight, shiny, silky hair! ha ha everyone complimented my hair but then one day I got bored and decided to have a short haircut (shoulder length). Well, there are people who said I really looked good in short hair and others did not like it. It actually depends upon the person's preference but for me, as long as you're confident, you can carry yourself very well! Just think that you'll still look gorgeous no matter what! if you keep on thinking that you look ugly in your haircut, you'll lose your confidence and people will feel that aura. hence, they will also think that you don't look good in it.

    I have seen a lot of girls with short hair and they really look hot in it! girls with long hairs too are also pretty because you can do a lot of hairstyles.

    Just make the best out of it!

  • Ive always thought that on girls, long hair looks better.

    From a girls perspective, if a bunch of girls walked passed me, I would always pay attention to the girl with the longest hair (just because I wanted to see how she styled it).

    But then again, when I was a kid, my dad always made me get extremely SHORT haircuts, so I'm absolutely in love with long hair which in turn makes me a bit biased.

  • i went from short too long... I don't see a difference in attention, but I mean I don't really know what people are thinking about me to themselves, but honestly I don't care. I want a guy to like me for me not the length of my hair. I do agree though some girls can't bull it off. I think larger girls heads look to small with really short hair haha...if you have a petite frame its really cute... GO FOR WHATEVER HAIRCUT MAKES You HAPPY!=] if you hate it, it will grow back

  • I have a bob, and I do get quite a lot of attention.

    It just depends if it suits you or not.

    If you have a round face, don't cut your hair too short, it will make you look fatter.

  • Hey, I used to have really long hair and got a lot of attention with it but then decided to get it cut into a pixie cut, then I didn't get any at all really but its nearly shoulder length now and I'm getting some again. Hope that made sense :)

  • I used to have waist length hair and cut to to about chin length awhile ago. After cutting it, guys barely looked at me. Even my brother and Dad encouraged me to grow my hair again! Now it is about bra length and I get much more attention from guys. So in my experience I definitely think guys find longer hair more attractive.

  • No idea. I've never cut my hair short. The shortest my hair has ever been is shoulder length
