“The last time I cut my hair short, my boyfriend at the time was like, ‘You look so much better with short hair.’ So I cut it off. I know, I know, so stupid! My girlfriend thinks he just didn’t want any guys to look at me. … I attract a difference kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men—like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”
When I first read this quote, I was all “sure, Kirsten” in this really catty way (you guys, I am such a bitch), but then I thought about it more, and I can dig it. I’m a natural brunette, and I’ve never really played around with coloring that much, but back in January I dyed my hair red, and I really did get quite a bit more attention from guys. And I recently cut my hair short – about this length – and everyone, my mom, my best friend, so many ladies in my life said “oh, that’s really cute, but does your boyfriend like it?” So I guess Kirsten’s right.
What about you guys? Do you get different attention based on your hair? Any ideas on how that works?
