Preferences regarding haircuts

General question:
If your partner had a preference regarding what kind of hair they'd like on you, would you consider getting that particular haircut?


Example: My boyfriend's preference on me would be a bob cut - every now and then he makes comments on how it would look great on me. He also emphasizes he loves my hair the way it is now (rather long), but still, it is clear he has a preference.
Personally, I do not like myself with a bob haircut, which is why I will leave it long for now.

What would you do?
Would you listen to your partner's preferences and adjust your haircut accordingly, or would you just not give a fork? :P

My boyfriend likes long hair... I find that my hairstyle is most flattering when it is cut to shoulder length. It's shoulder length.

Early in a relationship, no way!

After a while I will sometimes wear my hair in a way that I know he likes, and even will ask him about it occasionally before going out. But I won't cut it for him. I might eventually consider growing my hair longer if he wanted that, but cut it shorter than I wanted myself?! Goodness no!

My hubby likes my hair long and blonde, but I don't have any desire to do all the maintenance it requires. So, I wear it very short, choppy and dyed red.

Hum, to an extent.

I wouldn't do a pixie cut on request, I just do not like the way short hair looks on me.

Besides "not too short!" I don't have a strong preference on how I cut my hair. My husband likes it shoulder length and I am happy to keep it there. If he wanted it longer, I would probably keep it a bit longer.

If he wanted me to get rid of my bangs (they are kinda my signature, I have had them since I was a child) - I wouldn't do it.

Conversely, I can't stand long hair on guys or long beards, and prefer a well maintained cut (while, my husband, if it were up to him would grow out his hair and beard like a mountain man). So, he keeps his hair more maintained, and his beard trimmed to keep me happy

I think that depends entirely on how pushy he was being.

Well, my boyfriend is not pushy, quite the contrary, he always says he loves my hair, but it is clear his preference is bob cut, because he often mentions how good it would look on me.

That's funny you mention that, because when I met my boyfriend he had very short hair (about 7mm) and a 4 day stubble. I told him I think it would be fun to let it grow - he hasn't cut his hair or beard since. He looks like a mountain man now, indeed. When people ask him "How does your girlfriend feel about the beard/hair", he always answers "It was her idea!"... Glad he's happy with it tho --- but I think here I AM the pushy one ("Don't you dare cut that beard!"). :P

I guess it can go both ways.

My hair is below my shoulders, each time I go for a haircut my BF makes sure to tell me to not cut too much. I scared him last fall when I got home with my hair cut above my shoulders.

I don't care if my hair are below or above shoulders so I keep them longer to please him. If he would like a short & layered haircut it would be a definitive no. I trust if he liked short-short hair he would have picked to date one and not me.

My wife likes my hair clippered and short. But hey, I'm just thrilled I still have some hair! lol

As for the missus, she cut her hair to right above the shoulders after the birth of my son. Then it has grown out again. As we get older, I would like to see a shorter cut. Not quite the bob though... Her face is too roundish. It would be like an old dora the explorer look. ROFL!

I just hate that it takes FOREVER for her to get the hair done in the mornings. And it is annoying that when we are on the couch, i move and suddenly, I'm pulling her hair or its stuck on my clothing...Painful for her, pain in the ass for me.

I wouldn't cut my hair short for anybody. So funny you say that. There's an old rock star who tries to get all his women bobbed. Just ruins their looks. Must be from a past life. Maybe he thinks he was F. Scott Fitzgerald in the 20s.

Is that you in your Avatar? If yes then I don't know what your boyfriend is thinking..that long hair is way better than a bob cut!

Personally I love my girlfriend's long hair, but I have a thing for long hair shaved on one side, like Cassie if you google her. I did mention it to her but I don't think she is up for shaving a side off

Thatís funny - when i was 11 i shaved half my head to impress a guy.
It made my hair very thin once it grew back.
I regret it deeply.

My bf has never asked me to or suggested I change my hair. But if he asked me to cut my long hair into a bob, I would definitely try it. Anything shorter than that, though, I would not. I know I donít look good with very short hair.
