How important is hair to overall attractiveness? Specifically, which styles (down vs. ponytail vs. bun) and lengths?

Hair doesn’t play an important role in how attractive someone is. That doesn’t mean there aren’t things I look for. Anywhere from Neck length and longer looks good to me.

Do you feel there is a ‘Natural Hair Movement’ currently occurring?  Why do you think so many women are going natural (i.e. Do you think most women want to make a statement or to just stop relaxing)?
I think most women are just following the crowd.
Would you support your significant other if she decided to become natural?
Yes, I would.
Are you able to tell the difference in textures of hair?  If your significant other were to go natural, would the texture of her hair affect your opinions on whether she should remain natural or not?
No, I’m not able to tell the difference in textures of hair, but if she wants to go natural that’s her choice.
Do you like or dislike when your significant other changes her hair style often (i.e. wigs, weaves, braids, flat ironed, wash & go)?
…I like it, different is good at times…but too different can be a problem, I’m a big fan of “keeping it simple”.
Does the amount of time your significant other spends on her hair prove to be problematic?
How do you feel about the amount of money your significant other spends on her hair? Is there a point where the amount of money is a source of conflict?  Is it acceptable for her to spend as much as she chooses as long as she looks fly?

I don’t see the point of spending $100+ on hair. Maybe that’s just me. It becomes a problem when she’s doing her hair like every week or so. Other than that, I’m fine.

Do you think your significant other should consider your opinion when making decisions about her hair?
Yes, I may not know a lot about hair but. Every now and again ask what I think.
Why do you think women care about a man’s opinion when it relates to hair?
I think it’s because women do their hair as one of the ways to seem attractive to men.
How do you view women that wear weaves? Can you tell the difference between natural hair and a weave?
It depends what  is done with it. If a woman is simply doing braids, I think it can be great. I dislike when it becomes a part of some elaborate hairstyle. I can slightly tell the difference between weave and natural hair.
How do you feel about satin sleeping bonnets or any type of hair scarf?
I have no feeling towards sleeping bonnets or any type of scarf.
Does it matter to you whether your significant other’s hair is relaxed or not?
It doesn’t matter to me whether her hair is relaxed or not.

I can kinda agree with his statement about women following the crowd. I would say most are, but there are some that seem to only be going natural because it's the "in" thing to do. Those individuals are the ones that constantly complain day and night and also fight their natural texture and then are sad because they don't naturally have the curls that they want.

I completely agree with the comment about a lot of women following the crowd… great interview

I agree that with most hair styles, women follow the crowd. But to be honest id rather follow this fad, crowd or whatever you call it and have healthy real hair then that damn lacefront movement that is ripping out everyones edges out. You go on this journey and learn that #1. natural hair grows much faster than processed, and it grows in healthy and thick and full…. I’m mad it took me this long to go natural, should’ve done years ago…
