Curly Hair Vs. Straight Hair...



I've been meaning to do more of those. I blogged about Clean Cut Vs. Scruffy
and Short Vs. Tall Girls a while back. I was surprised at how many women preferred the scruffy look. Well, fellers, it's our turn to weigh in...sort of.

Word on the street (AKA the BET offices) was that I had a thing for light skinted girls with curly hair. I don't know where they got that from, but ask most of my curly-haired female friends and they'll tell you I prefer the straight look. I usually tell them they should straighten their hair more often. Now, don't none of you negras start giving me a hard time about being conditioned. I myself kept the curls in my long hair don't care days. I never could pull off an Ice-T look.

Anyway, most of my dude friends actually seem to love the curls, but per this article in Latina Magazine, which so happens to feature my homie Mariel and her twin sister, guys typically go for the straight locks. I personally feel like the curls just aren't for everybody. Some girls just don't rock it as well as others, be it natural curls or not. Sidebar: Girls like yesterday's topic, Reagan Gomez-Preston, just look good no matter how they rock their hair. She could be bald for all I care and still look good.

So, fellers, what's your preference? Straight hair? Curly hair? Phillies won? Ladies, for those of you who alternate between curly and straight locks. Does one particular look generate more attention?

regarding male attention: with straight hair, I get the hood/goon types and Kappas for some reason. With my curly hair I get more attention from intellectual types, wall street brothas, poet types and white men.

I prefer my curly locks just because it "fits" me more.

i prefer the one with the apple bottom.. lol

nah, don't matter... i'm into natural hair more but don't discriminate against the weave warriors or permed prima donnas either (as long as there's apple)

Astros lost!

Well guys like my straight hair... Always get compliments on it... But when I rocked a curly, big hair do during the summer, it was Crazy.. I got all types of attention... And I agree with Yaya Hood/ Goon Types love long (natural) straight hair, lol...

The big curly hair gets me every time, it cant look dry tho, that's a no no (chopped and screwed vc).

You already know what I think about this -- Curl Power! All day...

The curls definitely seem to intimidate some folks though -- more brothers tend to approach when I'm rocking the straight look. Curly is more fun though.

Interesting Carl… I thought the BET offices had you picked with light complexion / long hair crushes! Anywho, when I take a trip to the Dominicans for that blow dry /straight look the Suite and Tie gentleman eye contact lingers longer then when I’m rocking my natural curls. With the curls comes the artistic / adventurous crew! On the flip, from conversations with male friends of all walks of life, they prefer to run their fingers through anything long n soft; weaves look good but natural feels better.

I def prefer myself in the curls… when they are acting right!

I'm really feeling the curly look, always have....when the wife straightens her hair I look the other way...I think it's because I have straight hair and I want the opposite...

I also peeped Mariel on Latina.com and it's a much more deeper issue in Latino culture. Look this ridiculous saying up on the web: "pelo malo."

from a white guy- i prefer curly hair, but soft. Just looks more interesting to me. But then again, depends on the person.

martine said...

people say im more approachable with the curls cuz i look cute n bubbly, lol, but i prefer my hair straight and rarely do the curls.

the curly vs. straight is a big issue in Dominican culture. i'm dominican...and i've been brainwashed into hating curly hair. i still rock the curly hair tho. but i've noticed black men love the curly hair. hispanic men prefer straight hair.
