Shiny long locks or a sexy short tomboy?
One of the first things men will notice about you is your hair, so you should take good care of it. A hairstyle can make or break your entire look and beauty. Beauty is important to men and will strongly influence the way they feel about you.
Mother Nature made men that way, so there is little we can do about it. The good news is that everyone can be beautiful. It is only a matter of finding the perfect hairstyle and clothing to enhance your beauty. Begin with your hair, as it is often the first thing people look at.
Men love to run their fingers through long hair, and a head of bouncing long hair is simply irresistible for many of them. Long, face-framing layered hairdos or shiny, perfectly trimmed straight locks are a guarantee for success. With hair extensions becoming more affordable, instant long hair is no longer a privilege reserved for the rich and famous.
Many women in their forties who had already adopted a shorter haircut because it was perceived to be the "right" length for their age are now getting hair extensions. No need to go through all the steps of hair growth again; get extensions and you'll have long tresses within a few hours.
Bangs can do miracles! Long bangs are sexy and will never go unnoticed. Don't worry about your bangs being long and covering your eyebrows and sometimes even partly your eyes. Many people simply adore this look! Ponytails have a positive effect as well. Pulling your hair back into a ponytail will bring out the beauty of your face, and the bouncing ponytail on your neck and back can be very alluring. A high ponytail will have extra bounce. A special moment, seen through the eyes of a man, is when you undo the band and let your hair down.

You might not expect this, but many men love short hair. However, be careful before getting your hair chopped off. It is not because your boyfriend or husband says that he likes a short haircut with a buzzed nape that you should rush to your hairstylist to get your hair cut short and shave your nape. A lot of men have very mixed feelings about short hair. They might find a trendy short crop extremely cute and attractive, but at the same time they might have a problem with the idea of their girlfriend or wife getting rid of her long locks.
Talk through it carefully with him before taking the plunge. Keep in mind that short hair requires a lot of care to remain attractive, and that the line between a cute short crop and boring short hair is very thin. Monthly return visits to the salon are essential to keep the cut in good shape.
If you have short hair, use your imagination to attract men's attention. There are many things you can do to make a short hairdo look stunning, even when it is cut in a tomboy style:
- Spike it with gel for a unique punky look.
- Tousle it.
- Cut it ultra short for a sophisticated look.
- Use shiny spray.
