How much does the hair colour and length of a woman matter in dating? watch

    Hello,

    I'm really bored with my hair. I have very dark brown hair although it pretty much looks black unless it's in the sunlight so let's just say black. I get so bored with the colour and I don't feel pretty because I feel like not many guys like very dark hair. However I don't want to dye it because I'm scared of being 'fake' and a lot of men go on about how they like natural women so I feel like I can't win. Also I have olive skin and green eyes so I have to go to a very good professional hairdresser to match my tone and this costs me about £90 a pop! I'm getting really depressed and bored I don't feel good enough compared to other girls with blonde, red and brown hair.

    The I've managed to grow it to my waist when straight but most time I wear it curly so it looks mid back length. Sometimes I compare myself to girls with longer hair than me and I feel less feminine and pretty. I've convinced myself if my hair was pretty enough I'd probably get asked out and that I will never get a second glance until it grows longer. I'm hoping to reach curly waist length by the end of summer.

    So anyway, my question is how important are hair colour and hair length preferences in dating? Is black hair uglier than all other hair colours and less likely to stand out and likely to make me the bottom of the pile, or am I just being insecure?

    Thanks

    Hair colour does not matter in the slightest. Never ever compare yourself to other girls. You are you, and being yourself and enlightening your personality will diminish anyone caring in the slightest about your hair colour. Being yourself is what you can give in dating, don't worry about what they'll think about your hair!

    Long dark hair, green eyes and olive skin... are you serious? Quite the contrary, this sounds beautiful.

    I will dig any hair length and colour so long as it looks good and suits the girl

    To be honest, I'm not really bothered (as long as it suits her etc)

    I'm certainly a fan of dark hair, though

    This exactly.

    Girl, that is the dreeeeaaam! Dark hair with light eyes looks bomb!

    I personally think dark hair is the most attractive on both genders..

    It doesn't matter to me at all (within reason -- shocking pink might not be the best way to go...). As long as it suits the woman, it's of little consequence. Oh, and I quite like dark hair. Don't think it's boring at all.

    Edit: The same goes for length. I don't really mind as long as it suits.

    Imo, black hair looks great, especially if a girl is anywhere from pale to light brown.

    I don't like stupid hair colours like pink/green and I don't like properly short hair on a girl.

    She sounds rather beautiful doesn't she RobML?

    I certainly think you look gorgeous, my lovely

    EDIT: And your hair is fine for most guys in terms of dating. Only a minority prefer short hair and/or non-natural colours on girls.

    Hi just wondered what you think of girls who dye their hair pink, purple, blue, green or bright red etc? As I'm thinking of dying my hair one of these colours, or trying them all out in the next few months.

    I started a thread about it, could you answer?....
