I was just wondering. I think I get more attention with curly hair and I stand out a little bit more then my straight hair friends.

One of my friends says she pulls them more when her hair is straight because she looks older. Pshhhhh baloney right? ;)

how about yu ? just wondering btw

    Well, straight, because curly hair makes me look 12 lol
    But then, all the guys I already know like me better when my hair is curly.

    Over the summer this kid was like, "Hey baby!" and then told his friend he just hit on a 12 year old.

    I was so mad, like "I'm fifteen, jerk!"
    I look 16 at least when my hair is straight.

    yea Im 15 but look like 11 or 12 when my hair is curly. With curly hair I look older when I put on a little make up though. Side bangs also makes me look older with curly hair.

    for me, its not even like i look younger. i just think people are taken back by it. everyone says my hair looks better straight, then again the guys i know like the 'norm' which in their case is straight.

    i got my first bf last year when my hair was strait and then i went naturall and way more guys seemed into me. everyone of them got P.O.ed at me when i straitened it.
    Everyone says i look older with my hair curly verses strait. (even if it has turned to more wavey since i started to grow it out grrr.)

    For me, straightening my hair makes me looks younger. I have a lot of hair, so when I straighten I get more of a triangle shape. Weird, I know.

    I guess I attract more with curly, then. Especially when it's long, down, and my roots are lifted enough
  • laynesavedthedaylaynesavedtheday Posts: 239Registered Users
    I think curly since it is more "wild" and unusual (ie exotic). I look older than I am either way so that doesn't have much to do with it. I just think that curly hair makes me look more interesting.
  • kinkycurlycutiekinkycurlycutie Posts: 40Registered Users
    I get equal attention from guys when my hair is curly and when it's straight. But for some reason when I wear my hair natural I get hit on by like 13 years and that sucks considering I'm almost 16.

    cause the first time I went to school with straight hair(tenth grade, second semester), I did receive more atention than usual, but the second time I did(eleventh grade, first semester) not so much, so I think that they used to say straight hair 'cause it's different, but my boyfriend says he likes my hair the way it is(and he was one of the people who said to straighten it to see how it looked). Plus, I find straight hair boring. To me, nothing is sexier than healthy, defined, shiny curls.

    Unfortunatly, i think i probably do when my hair is straight. This is probably because the back of my hair is soo much culier than the front, it's noticibly weird.
  • missCURLSandPROUDmissCURLSandPROUD Posts: 3Registered Users
    i think if im at school i like it straight but my mum doesnt let straighten it for school coz she thinks my hairs lovely and i shouldnt do it coz i will destroy it. But every1 at school has lovely straight shiney locks and the boys seem to love the way it shines but my hair doesnt shines:crybaby:so........i think boys are more attracted to straight hair :crybaby:. But when i go on beachy holidays beachy boys are more attracted to curly hair which is :thumbup::toothy2: + i think tanned boys r fitter so :) YAY love da frizz

    When its curly, definitely. I apparently look more relaxed.

    Though I did when it was straight too (not been straightened since July though).

    I look around 4-5 years older than I am either way...:D

    I attract a ton of guys when my hair is straight,
    but when my hair is curly, none. My hair is such a mess when it's curly, I kinda understand! lol

    I don't know if I attract boys more in straight or curls but for sure in curls (specially after starting CG) I feel more self-confident and unique! I guess it helps:D

    when my hair is curly i attract a lot more guys, they like playing with them and telling me how exotic i look

    but when my hair is straight, i get a lot more attention from girls, usually accompanied by them giving me the side eye and stank face (which i take as a compliment anyway)

    but when my mom had relaxed hair, she never got attention like that. now that she is a natural 3c/4a, it is amazing at at how many guys, young and old, hit on her... makes me a little bit jealous lol

    Hmm... well, I only have one group of boys to work with, so I don't know how the change hit them.

    But I started wearing my hair curly this week and a lot of my guy friends approved!

    I only had one that didn't say anything until today. He thought I'd been using a curling iron. He said that it "blew him away" that my hair looked like this naturally =].

    But they ARE used to seeing my hair straight. I might have to wait until I start college to get some real test results.

    hmm. well ive only straigtened my hair twice this entire school year and i've gotten way more guys trying to talk to me. i also am going to a bigger school, but on the times i straightened my hair i wore it like that for a week at a time and not one guy said anything. i guess because so many girls here have relaxed hair or weaves or braids/twists, so natural is something different. i only know of 1 other confirmed natural girl (another i know might be, but idk)

    hope that helps.:thumbup: im 16 btw

    when i leave my hair curly, i get the occasional "wow! ur hair is awesome!" but when i straighten it, i get "wow! ur hair is straight!" so i guess guys like curly hair, but when you change it and straighten it, then they notice the difference and comment on it too.
  • curlybabe12curlybabe12 Posts: 6Registered Users
    it really depends on the guy, some guys like curly hair,and some guys like straight hair, everybody's diffrent.:wav:
  • xxmissyxxxxmissyxx Posts: 31Registered Users
    actually whenever i've straightened it in the past i've got loads of comments from guys telling me that i shouldnt and actually they think it looks really nice curly which confused me at first because i hate my hair curly! i don't know if its something to do with looking like you have more confidence because you wear your hair natural? and for me that tends to work better :) but then it depends what people prefer and what suits you as well i guess
  • oovuuoovuu Posts: 22Registered Users
    Mostly when it is curly, because curly hair is hard to find around my town. Nearly all of the girls straighten their hair to death, and I leave mine natural. It makes it a little more exotic I guess :3

    I attract about the same either way.

    I don't think guys really notice hair that much, one time when I straightened my hair a girl complimented it and one of my guy friends was like, "It looks the same as it always does.."
    He didn't even notice that it was straight! Haha

    But yeah, I think as long as you're hair is healthy and shiny you'll be okay with the guys. :)

    I think I attract nicer boys when my hair is curly, and sluttier, meaner boys when it is straight. However, my hair looks best when I style it curly, spray a soluble-cone protection spray on it, then run a 360 degree flat iron over it sparingly (then garnier bamboo hairspray, THE BEST). Waves give me the most magnetism by far!!!!

    Definitely curly. Mostly boys that are tired of "cookie cutter high school hair." (Someone said that to me...)
    I think it frames my face better, though, and that's why. With straight hair my face looks like REALLY long.
