We are often told, as women, to get our hair styled to our liking no matter what anyone thinks…especially men. But let’s be real, there are some women out there that do care about what the guys think and want to please their husbands, boyfriends, and partners in crime.
So the big question still remains: Do men prefer natural hair, relaxed hair, or a weave?
In all honesty, the answer varies. It all depends on what guy you ask; some men based their preferences on their culture and how they were raised. You also have the guys that based their preferences off of their own personal experiences and dating.
There are a good amount of men who think weave is just out of the question. They feel if the hair doesn’t belong to the woman, then they have no business wearing it. They feel that it looks and feels fake, and it makes the statement that the woman is trying to be something she is not.
Personally, I think weave and wigs* have come along way. From the touch to the authenticity, weave and wigs* are starting to fool a lot of men. I have several wigs I wear that spark confusion, but probably because I strive to make my weaves and wigs appear as if they are growing out of my own head.
I choose wigs that are similar to my hair texture, and I choose wigs that are (most of the time) half wigs, so my hairline will be authentic. If they can’t tell the difference then why should it matter?
In the below video the YouTuber conducted a survey which included men from New York to the DMV to see what men had on their minds when it came to hair. Several guys expressed the need to be able to touch their woman’s hair, and if she is wearing a wig* or weave, they would know immediately. One guy said that hair really did not matter to him; it was whatever makes a woman feel confident is what he prefers for her to have. It was pretty interesting. See below:
