Ukraine dating long hair
I myself have had short hair for years and I love how it looks—not only on myself, but on other women as well.
All I can say is that it’s something that I grew up hearing so often I must have internalized it as fact.I, of course, would never change my hair just to make someone like me, but I curious.So for the sake of a sociological investigation, I decided to do a little experiment to see exactly how much hair has an influence on the amount of interested potential dates. For the first week, I made a dating profile (one on Tinder and one on Ok Cupid) with pictures of my usual short hair and recorded the number of matches/likes and messages I received.My hypothesis, if you want to call it that, was that the profile with long hair would receive more attention. I created a profile with pictures of my short hair first.I swiped right on every single one of the first 100 profiles and then waited to see how many turned into a match.Consider what a big deal it was when Miley Cyrus sheared off her long Hannah Montana locks into a pixie cut, or how Julia Louis-Dreyfus was inspired by criticisms of Hillary Clinton’s hair for the short hair plotline on .
Going from long hair to short always opens up invitations to critique the woman’s appearance (especially when said woman is in the spotlight), and there’s seemingly always one person who’s quick to chime in with an unsolicited, “She looked better with long hair.” I would know, since I certainly have received plenty of those sorts of comments myself.
For the second week, I did the same thing but with a new profile that had pictures of me with long hair.
Other than the length of my hair, every other part of my dating profiles remained the same: the same brown hair color, the same neutral makeup in most of my pictures, the same brief bio, and the same preferences for age and location radius of men.
By the end of the week, I had 484 likes and 77 messages.
You know the drill by now: I created an identical profile with pictures of long hair for the second week.
I heard it from important men in my life—such as my father, my brother and his friends, my high school crush—and saw that view reflected in the media, specifically in the way that female celebrities’ long hair is prized.
