Well connie you certainly got alot of feedback.
My Idea on womens hair length is short hair is sholder length,and long hair is anything below the shoulders.I have seen some new styles this summer that are chin length that look very nice on alot of women.
Alot of women look better in short hair,but alot look good in long hair as well.I always like the change in season long in the winter short in the summer.I always like the change.

Mullets are laughable on anyone, regardless of gender :-P . Buzz cuts on women, it depends on the woman. If she has a pretty face and the right attitude to carry it off, I see no reason why she couldn't wear one. Most of the attraction in buzzed hair is with how it feels rather than how it looks, though, so I will admit it's not often the most aesthetically pleasing style. *shrugs* But then again, I don't think long hair is very aesthetically-pleasing, since it often just hangs there looking limp and stringy, and only serves to obscure a woman's features. Not very pretty or sexy, in my opinion. But if guys like that kind of thing, I'll leave them to it. *shrugs* Just less competition for the kawaii short-haired girls I'm after, then :-) .
*stops rambling now*

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just happen to like women with beautiful hair. It doesn't necessarily hafta be long but I prefer hair shoulder length or longer. That's not to say I don't like women with shorter hair but long hair is something that is an attraction for me personally.....it's not the only thing but it's something I like on a women. Some men are attracted to the color or a women's hair so preferences vary. The last thing I want to see on a women would be some butch, buzz cut hairdo aka androgenous thing or a mullet....I'd walk by and do my best not to Laff my Ass off.

Ladies if ya wanna attract the opposite sex but ya like short hair at least try to look a little on the feminine side with some wipsy hair or something. Don't fret there's someone out there for everyone or alotta fish in the sea so to speak.

I would say that men who only value women for really long hair are jerks. . . but I have such a strong preference for short-haired girls that some people have accused me of the reverse of the same thing, so I guess there are extremes in everything. . .

I personally love really short hair on women. A lot(but not all) of women look very sexy with really short hair, such as some of the styles Sarah MacLachlan has had. I love it. It drives me crazy. But I think it does depend on the woman though. Some women look best with longer hair. Do what you want to do don't do it for someone else. Be yourself.

I agree that long hair is very feminine, but it's nice to know some men can look past the length of one's hair. The fact that not all women can grow their hair long makes it special in itself. But I would not want to be with someone just because he's hung up on the length of my hair. That would be disheartening.

Juna,While I agree with you that David seems quite angry, I regret to saythat you are mistaken about my preferences regarding hair length.I find long hair on women to be aesthetically pleasing -- much moreso than short hair. My reply to Connie was intended to help her togain insight into her experience.While I feel (IMHO) that short hair generally does not flatter awoman's appearance, I realize and accept that it is the individual'sright to wear their hair as they choose.Although I may sometimes fail, I always try my best to be considerate,courteous, and polite when dealing with ALL people -- no matter theirhair length.

I think that there is a somewhat more generic explanation to this phenomenon.Men are fundamentally visual creatures. When a woman does something to her appearance that makes her standout from the rest of the women in the room, men will notice. If it is *attractive* or considered *sexy* or *exotic* she will receive a lot of attention. While those areas are somewhat subjective, she will receive more than her fair share of attention, glances, offers to dance, what have you. It is also not unusual for women who have taken a more conventional approach to notice and be dismayed with the men who react in that fashion, and even to the "perpetrator" herself. This tendency is not just long hair related. You can see it with women who have shaved their heads, unusual hair color, hair styles, or even clothing.In my case, my wife is often the odd one. She has longer hair that she loves to wear in updos. While at work, she uses basic clips and braids, but after hours or socially she tends to wear it done fairly elegantly. At a bar or club, she is often the only woman there with than kind of hair style, and get a noticeable reaction.I am not a hair fetishist, and have learned to tolerate her "vice". At first I too was annoyed at the attention it garnered, but I learned to deal with it. Men are what they are, some are just more polite about it than others. When the very different looking lady walks into the room, my head turns too, I just don’t stare or for that matter pant, as some males do. Its not just hair length.I agree with your final point , no hair extensions, but no whining about the male nature either.- Bo=========================================> Hey all,> I have to bitch about this.

I have to add that very long hair is extremely rare and many of the men and women may view this woman with very long hair more with fascination and curiousity then pure lust. Also, long hair no matter what is a very feminine thing. I have seen women with short hair who look very beautiful and it wouldn't really matter if they grew their hair long. But no matter what, long hair is feminine.Jason.

Hi, Karen!Great question. I have been through this a few times with boyfriends. I have to tell you that I think that I have been more self-conscious about this than them. I seem to just push it away from my face. The ponytail thing is just too easy:)Also, I have to say that most men kinda like it:) I would say from personal experience LJ is in the majority. In fact, the last boyfriend I had asked me what I was doing pushing my hair away when we started to kiss. My current boyfriend, well, he likes to drape it around him.

Then she gets it!LJ

Um, ... personally, I _like_ it when hair gets in the way of kisses. It doesn't stop the kiss, but makes it even more erotic.(except for the pulling-damp-follicles-free-afterwards part) >;-)> OK...here is an appropriate time to talk about this> topic and see what people have experienced.> Do any of you find that long hair gets in the way of> kissing?

I have to agree with Dan here on this long hair thing being an abnormality with some guys. Now, I have super long hair, but this David who wrote the nutcase posting above deserves the looneytoon of the month award (I wanted to say something else instead of looneytoon, but we aren't supposedto:)) I do think that most guys prefer long hair, but there ARE still many, many men who like short just as well, or better than long. The the thing is, when you go to some of these long hair sights, you are seeing what I and my Husband think are a lot of guys with a fetish, by the way they talk-NOT ALL-so please, no hate mail:), but I think that's what we have here with David. I'm surprised there hasn't been more attacks on this guys posting, but it's early yet! I guess it just means no ones paying attention, and that's good, but I just had to say what I felt upon reading it.

This is a very good point. However, I would never say to some guy in a bar, "I think firm buts are the most atractive thing about guys". I think that would just be disrespectful.

It is a myth that all men, or even most men prefer long hair. I know a guy who I kind of liked who was very vocal about his preference for short haired women. I would cut my hair short if I thought it would lok good on me at all. And I think knee length is too long, too hippy-ish. Mid thigh is where I would draw the line. I think the best looking people are men with long, loose hair and women with short hair suited to their face shape. I guesse what I am saying is there is no one definition for 'great hair' and chin length is as great as any. That guy is discusting for reducing all women to a single body part and you should not veiw him as representing all men.
