The assumption that women with long hair are considered to be a more desirable mates in men’s eyes is supported by decades of proof in the form of examples from popular culture and evolutionary psychology. However, one study suggests that short hair is associated with just different, but not worse, aspects of female attractiveness. Women with long hair are seen as “healthy” and “intelligent,” while short-haired beauties come off as “caring” and “feminine.” At the end of the day, it all comes down to preference, but there are many more reasons some men are attracted to ladies with short haircuts.
We took an interesting adventure into the male psyche and determined several points of opinion that apparently make women with short hair desirable in men’s eyes.

1. Short hair grabs a man’s attention.



Short hairstyles tend to stand out from the rest, so men find themselves noticing women with shorter hair, more often. From what we’ve gathered online, many men that have a preference for women with short hair, said that short hair is not as common as long hairstyles, which makes it a little more special. If a woman can pull off a pixie cut, she can be irresistible and definitely grab my attention.


«I’ve got a full-on thing for girls with short hair, but you don’t see it often.»

2. Short hair styles accent your neck and face.



You might’ve noticed that many high fashion models wear their hair back.  Did you know this is because it opens up their faces and accents their jawline and neck. This is because hair can be distracting and hide female features. Men seem to agree with this idea, saying that the face and neck are highly attractive qualities to them, and short haircuts let that specific female beauty shine.


«I think one major factor is how it highlights the neck and the shape of the jaw.»

«While I don’t view it as always attractive, it does show off the cheekbones and facial structure quite well. If you’re big on faces for attractiveness, that may be part of it.»
