When you see a girl you like, what do you do? You walk up to her, start up a conversation and hope to score a date. And when you do, what's next? Just turning up for a date dressed up nicely is not going to get you very far. In fact, paying attention to your hairstyle is extremely important too. A bad hair cut can make women avoid you like a plague.
The first hairstyle you should definitely avoid on the first date is the ponytail hairstyle. To women, a ponytail suggests a more negative impression than a positive one. It gives off the impression that you are lazy at keeping up with your appearance or more of a creepy pervert than a thoughtful and considerate possible lover. A shaggy cut is a better alternative if you prefer longer hair.
Another hairstyle you should avoid is slicked back hair. This hairstyle gives off the impression of greasy hair and the wet hair makes your hair appear like a helmet. Women could not resist the temptation of running their hands through their men's hair so excessive amounts of hair product are a definite turnoff.
A comb-over is also a bad choice of hairstyle for first dates. It is a terrible attempt to cover up a balding head. If you are in the early stages of hair loss, grow your bangs slightly longer to cover up receding at the temples.
When it comes to men's hair, anything past the jaw line can look greasy, particularly on the active guys. This hairstyle has the disadvantage of giving your date the impression that you are trying hard to appear youthful. If you want an appearance that suggests an extroverted and fun personality, apt for a shaggy, layered look and use a bit of gel and your fingers to create a slightly messier hairdo.
First impressions are important and hence, it is very important to pay extra attention when presenting yourself in front of the person you are interested in. But taking note of your hairstyle should not just stop at the first date or the second. The best way to know whether or not the hairstyle suit you are to switch up your look once or twice and see if your address book doubles in size.
