So why did I feel so confident that men, in general, prefer women with long hair?All I can say is that it’s something that I grew up hearing so often I must have internalized it as fact.
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.So when I recently found myself single and on Tinder for the first time, I couldn’t help but wonder (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice): Do men on dating sites prefer short hair or long hair?On one hand, I like the way I look with short hair; but on the other hand, the most popular woman on Ok Cupid has long hair.By the end of the first hour, I had 19 matches and seven messages.By the end of the week, I had 49 matches and 25 messages.Up until recently, I had been in a relationship for about seven years.
I’ve also had short hair—like pixie cut short, sometimes even buzzcut short—for the same amount of time.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.It’s always a big deal when a woman cuts off her hair, whether it’s in a TV show or a movie or in real life.I laughed them off and continued to wear my hair short.And yet, I still managed to internalize them to the point that I had no problem casually declaring that men on dating sites would greatly prefer me with long hair rather than my usual short hair—and I was surprised when I was proved wrong.The sad thing is that I allowed those individuals to shape my view of the world as a whole. The worst part is that I filtered my own appearance through their perspective and saw it as reality, without even realizing it.
