What type of guys like curly hair?

Like Tree7Likes

So lets face it. More guys like straight hair than curly hair. Luckily, when I was talking to my crush, he said he likes girls with curly hair! Maybe its because everybody in my school straightens their hair -_-. Even so, every other guy I know likes straight hair! Do guys like curly hair? What makes curly hair special to them? Is curly hair even attractive? Thanks! ^-^
Ok I hope I can answer this one correctly. I was told it's the confidence of the woman that makes her attractive. Hair, her shape, style & intelligence are extra features that add to the her soul's beauty.

I have heard guys say that as well. I guess I just have to love my curls!
What guys are you talking about? The easily influenced ones who believe what they see on a Pantene commercial. Curly hair looks unhealthy and messy, and with one use of this shampoo and conditioner... It's magically sleek, straight, healthy, and manageable? Yeah, those guys typically like straight hair (and fake tans).

Most of the guys I know love curly hair as well. I know several who prefer it because it "drives them wild".
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Many guys like curly hair. My husband much prefers mine curly and doesn't like it when I straighten it.
My hubby likes my hair (and my curly daughter's) the curlier and bigger the better!

I have found that men really love a total package. They don't know if they like curly or straight hair, long hair or short, makeup or natural, fake tan or not, etc. They only know when the total package looks good.
Guys that are worth talking to
My boyfriend, my dad, and My guy friends find me unique with my curly hair. It's a confidence thing! High school was all about straightening your hair or wearing it up. Now I like my wild looking waves. It sets me apart in a crowd. One of my regular male customers asked if my hair was natural. When I said yes, he told me it was beautiful and to never straighten it lol!
I'm not sure what poll was used to "determine" that most guys prefer straight hair, but I seriously doubt it was valid. In other words, it's most likely untrue

I never heard of anyone being made fun of because they had curls, or straight hair. A large number of men I know and have dated are curlies as well. A they rocked the long curls, or the big bushy do's. I did not encounter a hair bias until I spoke to some guys in their 20's, over the past 8 years. They all like that "reality" tv look. I feel for them. They limit themselves, in several ways.

I have to agree with E. I would say the survey is untrue, or they are only asking one type of mind set.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

In fact, the only women who have ever made snide remarks about my hair (or curly hair in general being naturally nasty and unhealthy) have been between the ages of 20 and 30. Idk. It was a non issue. It is still a non issue for the majority of people I know.

Men seem to have started noticing me more since I started wearing my big curly hair loose. And I feel comfortable with my hair probably for the first time in my life, so I agree it's more about confidence and the "total package".

OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!
Yup! My hubby prefers my hair curly... Most of the men I've dated have. When I straighten my hair...only women complement that they like it. LOL! I guess I radiate with my curly hair..not so much when it's straight.

Most of the compliments I get about my hair are from men. Some women like it, except my parents. I love my curly hair because its rather liberating. I think it's a confidence thing & some creativity styling that makes a woman feel like a million bucks.
I have found a lot of men like curly hair. What they don't like is "wild" hair, which unfortunately mine tends to be if I don't straighten it.

The old attractiveness research found that men consider curly hair to be more feminine and attractive. I guess it was conducted in the mid 80s?
