Maybe for some guys, but I think it's mostly the whole "off-limits" thing. A hot guy seems hotter when he's out of reach. Forbidden fruit and all that. I can tell you that it's very common amongst gay guys to have fantasies about seducing a straight guy.

By the way, your picture reminds me of Audrey Tautou:

It's a societal norm for women to have long hair and men to have short hair. Supposedly having long hair is more "feminine."

As far as I'm concerned, an attractive girl is attractive whether she has short or long hair.

Exhibit A: Natalie Porman in V for Vendetta.

Having said that, the buzz cut is too short for most women.

Audrey was one of my inspirations! What a compliment. :) She's beautiful.

Yeah, I actually don't like buzz cuts on either sex.

I find short hair on women unappealing because it isn't feminine.

Now, there are some short hairstyles that are indeed feminine. The one in your picture is feminine. I would not call it 'super short' hair... super-short is like what Emma Watson had a while back (military like buzzcut hair).. thats just horrid.

Here's one actress with long and short hair.. her short hairstyle is feminine and looks great.

... and she's most recognizable for her role in star trek DS9:

Man! Why can't straight guys ever be like gay guys? :( I know one straight guy who is into fashion and hair (I made him a blonde), and he is so hot. We even kinda had a thing... But he's too young for me.


I'm a horrible gay guy. I'm not into fashion and hair and I'm not hot – unless you think Orson Welles was hot when he was younger, because the resemblance is striking.

It's funny, straight women are always saying that all the hottest guys are gay, and gay guys are always saying that all the hottest guys are straight.

Yeah, I don't know where the stereotype that gays are all hot and fashionable came from. While it's (I guess?) a positive stereotype, I still find it a bit offensive. I could care less about fashion and hair. But I guess it's a "grass is greener" thing.

Anyway, I do like your short hair, OP. :-)

All stereotypes come from somewhere, and the gay stereotype is no different. It would be silly to deny that there are lots of gay guys out there who are feminine, into fashion, into hair, etc. But yeah, I think they're a minority within a minority, like most stereotypes.

It depends on the haircut. Really short can look good, even though I prefer really long hair in general.

Yours looks pretty good.

I'm a straight guy, and I find certain short hairstyles on women to be very attractive. Of course, it depends on the style, the length, and the shape of the woman's face, obviously.

It's not something I hate, but generally long hair looks better on females for me.

I don't mind short hair on women but there's a stereotype that women with short hair are tom-boys or lesbians. Some guys don't like tom-boys for various rezones & guys don't have a chance with lesbians so that may be why guys tend to be less interested & attracted to girls with short hair

I don't. I love short hair.

I think it has to do with looking like a guy to other guys or something.

I cut mine very short today, so I was just wondering.


Hair is apparently like tree rings; it indicates periods of health and ill health. Longer hair gives a longer record.

Maybe you're hiding something :P

I think your hair really suits you.
