Curly vs Straight (thought this was interesting)
 
A girl did an experiment to see which guys preferred by making profiles on a dating site using a curly pic and straight.
The results and dates made it interesting.

Hmm, interesting. I guess it shows that hair doesn't really matter. I get the feeling the girl felt more confident with one style than the other, so I think that made a difference in her results.

I loved that <3 haha I'm googling now for more experiments like that.

I think it has to do with the picture. The one with straight hair has a large smile tan skin, and she's pretty much exuding confidence. Whereas the curly haired one looks more mom, shy, and sweet.

I love sweetpeacurli's take on this:

Thanks Saila, I appreciate it. (I got an email alert about the pingback to the post.)

Yeah, I have to admit, I found the article to be hall-of-shame worthy, which is why I decided to write a blog post about it. Would be interested in other people's opinions.

I completely agree with your post, especially the last few lines.

I take offense to the very nature of these sorts of articles. Pretty much any popular women's magazines do this sort of thing. (Cosmo, I'm looking at you.) Their fundamental premise is that you need to look this way or that way and then men will want your bod because it will be good enough for them then.

Ummm... Forgive me, but who the hell cares about any of this crap? First of all, why is it assumed that men's approval is critical to any given woman's happiness? Secondly, why is it assumed that ALL men can only possibly be attracted to ONE thing? Ugh... I am not sure if I am making sense right now (it's late and I'm tired) but it's just sickens me.

The title of this article: "What do men prefer?"... Really? As if their is a consensus amongst the male gender or something. And even then, even if the entire male gender in North America prefered one or the other - why on earth does it matter? I am a human being. MEN are human beings. I think we are above this kind of superficial nonsense when it comes to one-on-one interactions, but certainly not when speaking in generalities.

ETA: You're welcome! :) By the way, I think we may be hair twins of sorts!

Yes. Exactly.

On another forum I was a member of I did something similar :) I posted a pic of me curly and one of me straight, making it clear that I'm just looking for opinions and I'm not going to change my hair based on answers. The majority of answers seemed to be on the straight side but because it was on a site for emos and the majority of emo kids straighten, it was pleasantly surprising when people responded positively to my curls.

Here's the link: Curly or Straight?

I think your curls are beautiful and much more flattering than in the straight pic. I don't always prefer curly but in your case, definitely. Not sure what emo is - a music style?
