BEYONDAGES.COM – Welcome to our list of 7 bad men’s haircuts that drive women away. In this article, I’ll be covering 7 popular hairstyles for men that women really don’t find attractive.
#1 The Man Bun
The Man Bun is created by tying long hair into a top-knot. Traditionally an artsy or even feminine hairstyle, men started sporting it towards the middle of the last decade.
You have seen it on the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio, Chris Hemsworth and Orlando Bloom among other long-haired Hollywood heartthrobs.
The Man Bun looks great if you have really thick hair and a square jaw. It looks not so good on guys with small or long faces, as it tends to draw more attention to the forehead.
One final word of warning about the Man Bun: Studies have suggested that tying it too tight can put too much traction on the hair follicles, killing them and causing permanent hair loss. It’s a process called traction alopecia.
#2 The Combover
Ok, guys we get it. You don’t want anyone to see you’re going bald up top. But you’re not fooling anyone with this cover-up – and it doesn’t look good either. The combover only serves to communicate that you’re insecure about your hair loss. Nine out of ten guys would look better shaving it all off. At least then, you’re owning your look.
Ask any female friend you have about your combover and she will almost always be honest about how bad it looks. A lot of us will tell you to shave it off unprompted. We have strong opinions about this, guys!
#3 The Mr. Burns
Guys, if you’re going thin on top and don’t shave the whole thing off, you’re in real danger of looking like Homer Simpson’s evil boss Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns is 104 years old. Needless to say, this haircut isn’t a good look for any guy under half his age.
I suppose you can pull it off if you’re planning to wear a baseball cap every hour of the day, but beyond that, it’s time to get the clippers out.
Honestly, the “Mr. Burns” haircut isn’t so bad if you’re a boomer who is happily married to a woman who accepts him for who he is …
