Do you get more compliments from men or women?

Like Tree1Likes

I get compliments on my hair fairly often whenever I go to a social event that involves friends and their subsequent friends who've never met me before. If/when you get complimented on it, is it more from men, or women?

I think it's more often with women. In the past month or so I've gotten maybe, 4 occurrences where a girl I don't or barely know randomly says "I like your hair." I guess I count it more because it's more spontaneous and unrelated to any conversation subject we have. If a guy compliments me, it's probably because we're talking about hair or something =P

2c or something MODCG Since December 2011!

i think i get more compliments from women as well, when ever im out in town or shopping, lately ive been getting quiet a few i get different compliments from men lol

my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
Defo women!

Naturally brunette but dyed hair, dark brown ( nearly black ) in November 2010.Trying to grow to WL but only past SL atm. Currently not CO washing and using Pantenes shampoo. Styling: Schwarzkopf ultimate repair serum with total ends repair. Also use Aussies 3 miracle worker from time to time. 3B,bouncy ringlets,medium thickness,strands are neither fine nor coarse,dry,low elasticity ( when wet, but high elasticity when dry ) and proud to be a curly!
Most definitely women! I guess guys just don't say that kinda stuff as often as women do. I've gotten an indirect compliment from a guy or two -- someone would tell me they said something nice about my hair. But that's about it.
Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

Women--especially women who are considering or already are rocking their natural hair.

Wow, for me it's definitely MEN! I get stopped by men who have seen me around at work that don't know me but let me know they prefer my hair curly. Male coworkers and friends also compliment me/my hair much more so than women. Women tend to complement me when I flat iron. I've only been stopped by 2 women -- both curlies!!

Women, by far. I get the occasional overall 'you look good' from guys but never really hair-specific compliment.

When it was superlong, this was different, lots of guy compliments, not from guys hitting on me or anything, just recognizing the very long hair.

Woman for sure.. girls always tell me all the time that they love my hair but guys have never commented on my curly hair! haha.. the only time guys have commented on my hair is when I've worn it straight, and that's probably just because it's different since I wear my hair curly most of the time..

Women. I recently started wearing my hair natural (3a/b) and I get atleast 2 compliments a day! Gay men and older men like my hair too, but younger guys usually say something like this, "is your hair naturally curly?" "yeah" "oh" "what?" "I like it straight". Well I guess thats too damn bad then because I like it curly I really don't understand what guys today have against curly hair. I think in the past curly hair was much more of an ideal than it is today. Whenever I straighten my hair women usually tell me that its an interesting change but they like my spirals or that it looks damaged (I agree, I rarely straighten it anymore because its just frizzy when straight and I dont think my curly cut works for straight hair so well. However, the few guys that tell me that they love my curls always end up being the good, genuine guys, not the ones looking for you know what. My SO gets mad if I even joke about straightening my hair, lol!

It's a very image conscious industry so those compliments weigh a lot!
