The 5 Biggest Hair Myths...and One Unfortunate Truth
Switching shampoos often? Shivering through a cold rinse? It's time to rethink your routines.
This one, unfortunately, is true: Men prefer longer hair.
According to studies, men are generally more attracted to women whose hair flows past their shoulders. In one study, women's images were digitally altered to give them short, long, and medium-length hair. Men rated the same faces as more attractive when they were attached to more hair. In another study, long and medium-length hair improved male raters' evaluation of female subjects' health. Well, call us crazy, but we say the hell with that. Because one quick glance at Audrey, Halle, Tilda, or this model (at left) tells us that the cropped look can be sexy, seductive, and wildly glam.
