Why do many men find short hair on women unattractive?

Hair such as pixie cuts, undercuts, etc.

  • Because long hair looks a hell of a lot better.

    I mean, many women look like a dude with short hair. Not all of course, as I've seen many attractive women with short hair

    However, the number doesn't hold a candle to long hair

    It shows and emphasizes beauty and youth

    Plus, feminism is taking short hair as their own, so there's that. The whole liberation and yada yada patriarchy, muh-soggy-knee, blah blah

    For me, I'd date a woman with short hair, but it's extremely hard to pull off without looking either like an effeminate dude or a lesbian

  • Because long hear represents the beauty and the covering on the woman's head. She is supposed to be covered and is something for men to discover, uncover. Otherwise they will give up the chase. Men just naturally love longer hair on a female because it's feminine compared to short hair. For a lot of women, it's hard to grow out hair, but some woman can't either because of genetics or the lack of a proper diet. An example of why women have it hard is because they eat a lot of junk foods, instead of foods rich in vitamins, iron, omega 3's, fish oils, etc to help grow them out. I love short hair styles, but I never wanted to have short hair. Some I'm growing it out. The point is hair also attracts certain guys attention. It also depends on the guy.

  • It really depends on her! I usually prefer long, wavy hair, braided, or a Dutch Crown style, but I have known a few with short hair, and it worked, for them!!

  • Lack of imagination, too easily fooled by appearances.

    However, some simply don't look good. Not sure if that's a hair thing or a general physical appearance thing. I'm more towards the latter.

  • Not everyone can pull it off. It looks great if properly done though. My mom has one, and of course she's beautiful that way.

  • Tradition!!

    Dont bother asking, they dont know. They just feel its somehow less feminine. Why is it less feminie? They dont know.
    And thats because its a completley arbitray tradition that they were raised to associate feminity with. But really there's nothing inherently masculine about having short hair

  • Cause it looks like a boy. Straight men like girls that look like girls... Who likes girls that look like boys? Most likely Gay people do.

  • Really? I thought guys always prefer long hair on girls. Short hair can be attractive if the girl has the right feature to pull it off. Not for me though. I look horrible with short hair.

  • Because long hair is usually associated with femininity. And being the masculins creatures that they are, men often seek the opposite, which is women with feminine traits.

  • It could stem from an evolutionary thing, as historically women with long hair were healthier and thus more fertile. Now I think they just associate short hair with men, and you know how homophobic men can be.

  • i think long hair is just considered more girly because mostly girls hair grows longer than guys, so guys might just find longer hair more feminine and attractive
