women who had originally been rated by a test group as being less attractive were rated
far more highly when shown with a longer hairstyle. The experimenters concluded that
longer hairstyles increase women's attractiveness in part because longer hair helps to
disguise less desirable features. Long hair tends to make the jaw line slimmer and less
prominent and draws attention away from undefined cheekbones. Also, as described by
many men, long hair also contributes to a more feminine and youthful appearance.
This article claims short hair is sexy too, although the stars they mention are a bit dated.
Is short hair really a boner killer? (Sorry, the title of this one just made me laugh so I had to include it.)
It's interesting with "stars" like the Jon & Kate Plus Eight mom...first she has short hair and she's the nasty, mean woman from a reality show. Then she gets extensions and her image is softened and she is suddenly America's sweetheart who was screwed over by her husband (not that I've watched the show, but I've seen clips and I would have dumped her ass if I were him -- she was MEAN).
Stars like Pamela Anderson are bombshells but Katie Holmes (with her new short 'do) is just a sweet stay at home mommy and beard for Tom Cruise.
Certainly, I "get" it. I fall for it too. Most of the female stars I like have long hair, even though I realize it's probably not their own. Well whatever, here's a blog for the dudes (and lesbians)...photos of hot chicks to follow (with both long AND short hair).
