Hello Medusa family and friends,
I was on my ipad the other night looking up some hair inspiration and I came across a recent poll put on by a major hair color company. They surveyed many men and these were the results they found.
82% of men indicated that sexy hair is a key element to a woman's overall sex appeal
78% of men surveyed consider healthy hair to be a turn on
74% of men indicated that they notice women because of their hair
60% of men surveyed say that they would rather date a woman with great hair than a woman with big breasts
44% of men surveyed said that hair is the first thing they notice about a woman, more than her clothes (26%) legs (25%) or makeup (4%)
Most men surveyed would be more likely to approach a woman at a bar with great hair than a woman wearing a low-cut shirt. So ladies, instead of struggling to decide what outfit to wear, it may be a good idea to start to rethink your hairstyle. Hair that is well-kept immediately signals to a man that you are responsible, classy, attentive, and take pride in your appearance and these are all characteristics men look for in women. Here are a few styles that guys love.
Why guys like it: From an evolutionary perspective, guys subconsciously like hair that looks clean and healthy, like Miranda Kerr’s smooth but fun style. “Hair that’s in top condition shows that you have a balanced diet and good health ---sings of an ideal mate.” Says biological anthropologist Helen Fisher PhD.
How to get it: Apply a heat activated smoothing and shaping product (like our KMS free shape hot flex crème) on damp hair before blow drying. Clip 4-6 sections depending on how thick your hair is. Then one section at a time round brush using a blow dryer equipped with a nozzle pointed straight down while you are drying. For a fun look curl ends in with your round brush. Finish with a product for shine and frizz control (like our KMS silk sheen polishing serum)
Why guys like it: Confident women don’t need to hide behind long hair it can show just how beautiful you are. Plus, soft face-framing bangs come across as super sensual. Ginnifer Goodwin’s peek-a-boo fringe is flirty and mischievous
How to get it: On towel dried hair apply a product that tames and softens (like our SEVEN texture cream) using a paddle brush blow dry hair side to side and forward till completely dry. For control, spread a wax based pomade (like our SEVEN fibre dry wax) in your palms, then pat your hair starting at ends to roots shaping in the direction you want. Tuck extra long pieces behind your ear.
Why guys like it: carefree is the key word. Lauren Conrad’s Clean bouncy hair is no doubt attractive. Guys like to be able to run their fingers through your hair without getting caughtin hair spray or tangles. Throwing some curls in shows that you have a fun side and aren’t so serious all the time.
How to get it: On damp hair apply a Primer for lasting style (like our KMS style boost). Then, a volume mousse (like our GOLDWELL top whip). For easy volume just flip your head over and blow-dry. When dry, clip hair into 4-6 sections depending on how thick your hair is. Here is where you have an option..Whatever tool you are most comfortable using either curling iron, rod, or flat iron. Curl each section curling away from your face. When finished with all section use a finishing spray (like our KMS hair stay anti-humidity seal) and run your finger thru till all sections blend.
