Shorter than shoulder-length hair means one of six things:

* Lesbian
* Young child that won't stop grabbing and pulling and/or trying to eat hair
* Middle-aged woman who no longer cares what the opposite sex thinks
* Dramatic haircut / hair coloring / hair bleaching / playing with matches accident
* Serial killer
* Two or more of the above

Almost universally women look better with long hair. Even the super cute little women with cute little hair cuts would probably look better with longer hair. Only a very select group of women can pull off short hair.

Basically its for lazy women and women who have given up on looking good and the occasional "trying to be bold but really just hurting their own beauty" trendoids.

Kate gosselin popularized her style and tons of women tried it. Then she grew her hair out and she was ten times hotter.

Also, some women look better with shorter hair. They have the cheekbones, long necks and eyes to pull it off.


Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie look amazing irrespective of hair length, so there is no real difference between the long/short states. It's the same with Winona Ryder.

But look at Dana Delany.

IMO she looks MUCH better with long hair.


Actually, my reaction was quite the opposite - I find her more attractive in the bottom pic, with shorter hair. Just goes to show the subjectivity of physical attraction, I guess.

The only girls that look good in a pixie or bob haircut are the ones that already are very hot and can get away with it because they have enough other pretty features to look at.

If you aren't hot, then hair is something that can be used to soften up an image.  I for one, love running my hands through a soft, beautiful set of hair.

Hey - if women want to make themselves ugly I guess that is their problem.

I can't think of a single woman who was hotter with short hair than long hair.  It almost always makes them less attractive.

Short hair is for older women who just don't want the maintenance anymore and have given up.

Actually as you get older and hormon changes your hair actually gets finer and loses its bounce and fullness.  Making your hair shorter gives an appearance of fuller hair for longer.

So women who let their hair stay long and bedraggled looking thin and without life don't care.  Many women who cut it shorter do so to improve the appearance.


The body changes as you age.

You, if you live long enough and no one kills you for being an arsehole, will find this out for yourself.

We all have our personal preferences. While you're welcome to say you don't personally like short hair on women, I don't get how it follows that those women have given up on being attractive...

Some of us just like having short hair. Long hair just hangs off my head in a lank waterfall with ears peeking out, short hair emphasises my neck and my clavicles, and makes my head look a nicer shape.

Also, short hair can be more work so it's not just laziness either.

But you know, you might not like short hair, that's okay. My hair is not about you.

Undoubtedly! If you haven't seen it, 'Exit to Eden' shows her off very well. You'll have to ignore Dan Aykroyd and Rosie O'Donnell but that's a small price to pay.

The way I figure it is it doesn't matter.  From personal experience young women with short hair have had some sort of traumatic incident where their hair was used against them.  Such as held down and by their hair while being raped.  So they keep it short so it cannot happen again.

Middle aged women don't need to be attractive anymore so they go short for ease of care and as a subconscious statement to the world that they're no longer willing to find a man regardless of whether or not they're married.

Old women can't afford that much blue dye for long hair

Thank you for pointing out the derp.  I am female and at the moment I have hair about halfway down my back, but there are times when I got tired of fooling with it and just got it cut off.  You farkers who think a bob haircut = lesbo are stupid jerkoffs; we wouldn't be interested in you anyway.

LewDux: Short hair on women goes against Bible and natural order of things "Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him, but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering" 1 Corinthians 11:3-15


I suspect you're kidding, but imho, people who ACTUALLY conflate "the Bible" and "the natural order of things" should be legally required to get all their medical care from Biblically-approved providers.  And they will be stoned to death if caught in cotton-poly blends.

I tell them that (if they're in shape and have a decent pair) they look like teenage boys with boobs.

They argue, deny, et al. Then I tell them to put on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt and take a picture of them from behind. After seeing it, they reluctantly agree: they only are visible as women because of a bit of frontal fat.

Usually ends the bob or pixie cut.

vinniethepoo: My wife started getting clipper cuts a couple of months ago. Number 1 setting on the clippers. Pretty much the same as a buzz cut, actually.

The men where she works kind of tease her and call her "that bald woman" but the other women admire her bravery, as well as the comfort level. (It must be a real biatch wearing your hair long in a hot, tropical climate.)

/I get buzz cuts too.
//Haircut and a beard trim, $1.25.
///Slashies are free.


I get my hair buzzed because most of it has fallen out already anyway.

IMO, women ALL look BETTER with longer hair (shoulder length). Sure some can pull off the short cut, but even THEY look better with longer hair.

I cut my hair after our second child was born, eventually to a short bob/not quite a pixie. It was actually more difficult to maintain & style than long hair. I'm back to long hair and will never cut more than the split ends again. Long hair has near-infinite styling options while being incredibly easy to maintain. Eat well, drink lots of water, and use good products.

I have thick hair. When it shiats me, I cut it off.

A couple of years ago, it shiat me. So I cut it off. And then very quickly, women started hitting on me and alot of guys assumed I was a lesbian (this is the first time I've been single with a pixie).

I started growing it back in about September last year. The teasing from my friends has been relentless and brutal. Due to my masculine jawline and the current state of my hair, my friends are referring to me as the Beebs.

And fark that about short hair being less maintenance - its way more maintenance. To keep it looking decent you need to get haircuts every six - eight weeks. When my hair was long, I could easily go 6 -12 months without a hairdresser going near it.

Man, there was a guy in my HS who rocked a two foot tall, straight up mohawk.  Used glue to hold it up.  Died it crazy colors.  The girls freakin loved it too.

Then the faux-hawk became trendy, guys spent 30 seconds in the morning throwing wax in their hair and his ho-entourage scooted over to the dark side.

Point is, I think the only people who care this much about hair are still in high school.

In our culture, you have to have the right head-to-neck ratio to pull off a pixie cut, or even a bob to a lesser extent. Long neck and a smaller, oval shaped face, it can look damn sexy. Think Audrey Hepburn. Also helps if the rest of you is on the thin side, but not required.

If you have a particularly round head, wide cheeks, and/or a short neck, and are short and round yourself, the only favor you are doing yourself is being cooler in the summer and saving on shampoo.
