Lengthy, flowing hair has long been touted as attractive in women. This fascination has been around since the days of Shakespeare—the Bard once wrote of his wife’s hair as “threads of beaten gold”. Nowadays, not a lot of women wear their hair short the way Dorothy Hamill or Princess Diana did; you often only see the likes of Paris Hilton’s and Tyra Banks’ hairdos which are either grown out naturally or achieved through the likes of beautiful virgin hair extensions.
An article in the U.K. Daily Mail hoped to find out what type of hairstyle men prefer the most, and the answer was quite expected. Their survey’s respondents rated long hairdos the highest (long and wavy at 43 percent, long and straight at 13 percent); and as anticipated, short dos like the bob, bowl cut, beehive, and pixie crop occupied the lower half.
