    I have long-ish hair and i think girls prefer it too, i used to have it really short. I used to have short hair because my mum forced me and now calls me a scruf with longer hair.
    I just wondered what the lovely ladies on this forum think?
    Short or long hair, or somewhere in between???

    Short and long are such vague descriptions. Where is the line between them? Is 'long' past an inch or two or past the ears or the shoulders or what? I generally prefer a few inches or less but it depends on the guy's face.

    I agree, it's difficult to know what short and long are supposed to connotate. Perhaps brackets of maybe 0-1 inch, 1-3 inch, 3-10 inch and >10 inch would make it easier?

    I've got moderately long hair (reaches just about down to my mouth from my forehead if you pull it down, so maybe 6 inches) and my girlfriend would slaughter me if I went back to having short hair. I by far prefer having my hair longer anyway - the scruffy look befits a mathematician.

    Depends on your face type / general style. I like anything from a messy 2 - 3 inches, to a shoulder length mane.

    I have fairly long hair, up to just above my shoulders, i think that suits me most, although I do cut it really short every now & then adds some variety.
    I think long hair allows me to keep me looking scruffy or smooth, whereas shorter is abit more boring.

    Short - anything from bald or skinhead through to maybe an inch or two that can be styled. Long hair on guys does nothing for me I'm afraid.

    Definately depends on what type of face you have. I've met some guys who need a decent amount of hair to balance things out because otherwise their facial features look too harsh, but also some guys who actually look quite odd with any hair at all.

    I used to think I preferred long hair, then the guy I like (well... if you can call it that) cut his and I realised that I actually preferred it short. So there's not really a one size fits all approach, i'm inclined to like whatever works best with the facial features of the guy.

    It depends on the person, some blokes with long hair look a bit try hard and some with skin heads look like thugs. I don't mind as long as its well kept and not greasy. I hate it when men have longer hair(shoulder length) and it's all greasy and tangled!

    I love long hair on guys - obviously a well conditioned barnet is a must, so no greasy rat's tails for me!!
    I don't like it too long, so anything past the shoulders isn't for me.

    Oh and it has to be dark - long blonde hair on a guy just doesn't look right imo.

    Depends on the guy. I know men who really suit long hair (like, below the shoulder), and other guys who suit short hair.

    Personally, i like men to have short hair - where they can style it or summut or like Mr J.T as someone mentioned. Long hair - nuh uh not my cuppa T on a bloke.
