But what if you were born with a common hair shade? How can you stand out? Its hard to get noticed and stand out in a world of so many different competitors. Thats what everyone else is trying to do. But take courage, dark haired gals! There are many ways a dark haired woman can stand out in a crowd. And your hairstyle can make a huge difference on how you appear, and how others perceive you.

Before we move on to the different hair style choices, we must first recognize what is attractive to the opposite sex. Recently a poll was done by researchers that concluded that men prefer women with long hair.
I know, surprise, surprise. When you ask a man what length of hair he prefers on women, 9 times out of 10 he will say long. This question was asked on Yahoo Answers, and a few other sites on the web. And nearly all the men asked, responded yes, they prefer long hair on women. In another poll, done by the Daily Mail Reporter, researchers did a survey of 3,000 men, and 43% of the men polled preferred long hair. 80 percent of the men said they definitely notice if a woman changes her hair, while 18 percent said they rarely notice when a woman changes her hair.
General Poll Results:
Long and Wavy: 43%
Long and straight: 13%
Mid-length straight: 9%
Mid-length wavy/curled: 3%
Why do men prefer long hair on women?
All the men who answered yes to the question, said they prefer a woman to have long hair because it sexy. There’s just something about long flowing curly or wavy hair that they consider incredibly attractive.
They indicated that they like shiny, touchable hair without a lot of styling products, and said they liked to run their fingers through it. In general, they equated long hair with being very feminine. Long hair is like a man magnet. So if you want to attract an amazing partner, long hair is the way to go!
