Men like long hair on women because it is associated with femininity. Long, wavy hair is the style men are most attracted to, followed by long, straight hair.
When polled, most men prefer a long, wavy hairstyle that looks natural and effortless. According to the U.K's Daily Mail Online, this style is not a look most women can achieve naturally. Considered one of the most difficult styles to maintain, it requires the use of irons, tools, products and technique.
Long, straight hair is another style men are attracted to. Far fewer men consider short hair attractive, but hair that is shiny scores high as it denotes health and vitality.
