    I don’t think significantly. Well when I was younger I didn’t think about it all that much, but then I noticed how certain styles do look better on me than others. I’ve read about it a little bit and I think it all comes down to picking a style that flatters your face shape and features. So yes, I do think it can make you look a little better or a little worse...And according to the style you choose, it can also alter the vibe you give off. So you can make yourself appear a little more edgy, classy, retro etc. what a person is trying to convey about themselves. The color itself I think can say a lot. I think it can alter your look quite a bit, and the way you appear to others, but I don’t think it will do it anything significantly, as in make you appear as an entirely different person.

    Head hair is aesthetic. More people should keep it slick imo. You could be wearing a potato sack and a good enough mane would still make up for it.

    Yea, if I sport a bowl haircut I'll probably be perceived as a foreigner, for example. if I have a more Americanized/modern haircut I'll be more perceived as American. people are tribal and will look at outside appearances to determine whether or not someone is in their tribe

    same with clothes, skin color, speaking with an accent, driving a nice car, etc - they all add up in influencing ones perception of someone else.

    Without a doubt. It's one of the things that can completely transform how people see and treat you.

    I was discussing haircuts with my son and told him he should comb his hair off his face. He asked why, so I combed my hair straight down from my forehead and my IQ instantly dropped by 50 points.

    Lol, when I was little I was obsessed with fixing every little “bump” in my hair. It had to be perfect and I would get really upset if a bump suddenly emerged. >.> Not quite the case anymore heh.

    Agreed that certain short haircuts especially, suit different face shapes (which are honestly usually more of a blend of shapes rather than perfectly “square” or “heart” shaped, for example) more.

    I had a friend in middle school that was like this. When she pulled her hair back, it had to be completely sleek!

    my mom gave me bangs when I was younger and I’m pretty sure they made my face look fatter. I grew them out when I was 13? I think. I’ll never have bangs again. I have this really terrible picture of myself when I was 12 or so with bangs and a perm . And now I still have a complex about my face being fat.

    I had my mom style my hair for me before school until I was like maybe 16 haha. She used to be a hairdresser. I’m really terrible at doing hair, or my hair is really difficult to work with, but I think really it’s probably both. I think mine looks best long and straight, so anymore I just leave it at that and run a hair straightener over it a bit.

    My LSE mother cut my hair until I was about sixteen. She did it to save money and she wasn’t very good at cutting hair, so she gave me crew-cuts. She had these attachments to an electric trimmer which would set the height of the cut above the scalp. It was a lot like mowing the lawn.

    Around age 16, I started to let my hair grow longer. My father hated that. One day, he took me to his barber and I thought, “At last! A real haircut!”
    The barber asked me how I wanted my hair cut and I told him this and that, but when he finished and handed me a mirror, I had a crew-cut again.
    At that point, I decided to find my own barber. I was working in the summers, so I could afford it.

    When I was in college, I let my hair grow a lot longer. At one point , it was down to the middle of my back and I’d sometimes wear it as a ponytail, but it got to be too much to deal with and I found a woman who knew how to cut hair and she shortened it somewhat.
    I have a picture of me with that haircut on this site, in Unofficial Pictures.
    My EIE aunt once looked at my hair and told me she wished her hair looked like that. I think she was sincere.

    It matters dramatically. Can look like a totally different person and radiate a totally different personality and values just with what you do with your hair or lack of.

    Sometimes I want straight across bangs again and I got a lot of compliments when I had them, but I have also been told I look better without them. I think for me it’s dependent on my weight at the time whether or not they make my face look fatter. Weight tends to go to my face, don’t even need a scale, just look at my face lol. I think side-swept is probably the most ideal for my face shape, probably the same for you Aster. Bangs are a lot of work though

    Having to wear glasses doesn’t help either. Bangs be oddly sticking under my glasses once they grow a bit, lol

    yeah weight goes to my face too, ugh

    I think a problem for me with the whole ‘bang thing’ is I have a short forehead. I tried side swept back in 2006 (lol doesn’t seem that long ago to me) and they were a bit better. But yeah, a pain. I think someone with a longer face or bigger forehead might be able to pull off bangs better (Zooey Deschanel cones to mind, IMO she looks better with bangs).

    It influences on the look. For example, women with too short hairs look lesser feminine.
    Most of young women seems to have long hairs here.

    I prefer practical side of short hairstyle and think such look as good enough too. Also this hairstyle is easy to do yourself by a machine with a little of scissors' work at the end.

    Yes. Certain styles look better and depending on the person’s hair pattern, texture, head shape, etc. certain styles are possible. I’ve had a lot of people over the years really want my bangs but can’t get to look like mine. I have poofy bangs because I have 2 cowlicks there, along with the fact that my bangs naturally start in the middle of my head. My hair texture is fine and fluffy, it feathers easily, and it’s wavy during rainy/damp season so it’s easy for me to have bangs with a bedhead look. I can’t rock pixie cut, just because my hair doesn’t lay right and the texture isn’t thick enough.

    Yeah it can. It a person has a sexy haircut that also really suits them- makes them look more appealing than otherwise. Of course you can have the hottest hair in the world and then say something douche-y in the bad way and I wouldn't be turned on by that person lol cuz reality is complicated and I can't imagine being that shallow. But a bad haircut to me is more distracting than a good one is - because its like, I want to correct it like a stereotypical gay man lol. Like the most perfect guy in the world would otherwise be entirely ruined by one of those bad mullet 80s things.

    A good haircut is mildly interesting and alluring to me but it's more of a subtle thing , a more complicated piece to a bigger picture. I also often disagree with what mainstream trends say as well. They say bowl cuts on women look bad- I don't think that's always true. Depends on face shape, body frame/weight, complexion etc.

    I can’t be bothered with my hair anymore so I just do a credit/buzzcut/something slightly longer. I keep the top longer than the sides usually. The sides stick out and it looks dumb. It makes the whole thing look untidy.

    Hair has a great effect on appearance. It is actually almost always the first thing that sticks out to me about people. Unfortunately, my hair goes on a new adventure every day and I have learned to be my own hair's bitch for the most part. There are always weird cowlicks and poofy tufts appearing, and wind often turns my hair into what looks like a failed art project or like I have been working in one of Pixar's kitchens.

    I love slightly messy, sticky up, static Beta hair. LSE have it too sometimes. Oh but then there is that SEI thick, velvet draping over the face hair.

    This is really weird but I realised the last guy I liked, had the same hair style as a doll I had when I was a kid. 90s curtains, brown.

    I guess if you're a girl, it matters a lot, but I'm a boy, so I have more liberty.

    It's just the way that society is setup, that girls have to look a certain way, and just have more expectations/complexities as a whole.

    When I was in high school, some girls told Me that I didn't understand just how difficult it is to be a girl.

    The sexual version of Raptor turned inside out into tesseract dimensional hyper-cube enfolding is a lot like that geeky programmer Pokemon Porygon, where if you change a few laws and limits, the steam piston may churn out a very radical and entranced product of ghosts and shockwaves of silencing disturbance, Raptor as a girl!!

    I was watching a Hey You Pikachu video, and it made Me realize that Bunny should be available to everyone with a good Heart!!*
    A lot of people would really Love Bunny if they could play with Her. The possibilities are magnificent and wonderful, to tour pure Imagination with feathers and friendship. The Bunny ride is infinitely mysterious yet lovely. By voyaging into storybook character expression and vibrant atmospheres of elegant matrimony, then they sky would open up, and brilliant auroras of vision and clarity would arise through the telescope. Bunny flows and flowers with canopies of decoration and dreams.

    It's for both sexes that you are expected to have some look.
    And it's not "just", as is perceived by other people aesthetic feeling, shows the degree you care about your decent state, may express some of your personality and behavior, etc.
