Dear Poll: Do You Wear Your Hair For Your Man?

According to the April issue of Glamour, 70 percent of men prefer women to wear their hair down. That statistic doesn't really surprise me — men love to touch soft hair — but what about those times when you just want it off your neck, away from your face? Or what happens if you prefer the way you look when your hair is up? Of course we all want to look good for our mates, but tell me ladies, do you wear your hair for him or for you?

Mine likes my hair up or left to its natural waviness. I like it down and blown out straight. Most of the time I win, but sometimes he does. He also thinks I look fine without makeup, but he'll never get me to leave our apartment without any.

nevaeh1978, I am in the opposite situation! My boyfriend likes my hair short, and I like it short too, except that I have to cut it every month to keep it looking good. That is just too expensive and time-consuming for me, so I decided to grow it out long. My boyfriend frequently asks me to cut it, but I just say no.

I wear my hair for me. My hair differentiates me from other people and it's not something I would ever change for anyone.

Considering that my hair does whatever it wants, I had to choose Other.

My hair was one of the things that first attracted my husband to me (dark brown, very long and very curly). I know he doesn't like blonde hair or straight hair, so I won't do either of those things, but anything else is game.

For hubby. He likes it long so I haven't cut it in a while. I don't know beyond that if he has a preference for up or down. I'm generally not the type to do something for a man, but he seems to have a stronger opinion than I do, so whatever. This week he got his hair cut the way I like it though, so I feel like there's reciprocity. I like his longer on top so he had the lady leave a little more. I thought it was sweet :)

I'm low maintenance, and I only have two styles: up (ponytail) and down. And my boyfriend could care less about which style I wear, so I do whatever I feel looks best for me at the time.

I do it for me. I've shaved my head twice (once on a dare) and I've grown it long too. It's just hair. It's been dyed every color under the sun except (Bob forbid) blonde. I've been dying it black for quite a few years now and that's what I like. My husband would prefer that I keep it my natural color which as far as I remember is an auburn color with some gray in there. If he likes auburn so much, he should dye his f*+king hair auburn right?

Ex-boyfriends gave me good beauty advice: "you don't need make-up and "your hair looks better down".

My hair is pretty short (like, as short as I can get away with without making my chubby face look chubbier) so there's not much *to* do to it. However, I dye it randomly. I know he'd like me to dye it red more often (my guy has a thing for redheads) but I'll dye it whatever color catches my eye, regardless of what he wants.

I like the way I look with my hair up most of the time, but maybe I should wear it down more... :P

fortunately, I like my hair down, and so does my guy...

I've pretty much always worn it long, and it waves naturally, and he likes it that way, so we're cool. Every couple years he asks me to think about going blonde, and a couple times I tried it, but hated it. If I were supposed to be a blonde, I'd have stayed that way, and he can just get used to the natural brown.

I wear my hair for me, but then it usually ends up being for both of us. I've started wearing a simply braid just to get the hair out of my face, and my guy ended up loving it. Basically, as long as I don't do anything too crazy color wise or chop it all off again, he claims to like my hair whichever way I wear it.
