Long haired hotties

7 Dec

Long haired blondSince my fellow blogger Liz wrote about sexy bald men on Tuesday, it’s only appropriate to finish out the week by giving their hairy counterparts equal consideration, and I am happily taking on this mission.

In Western culture today, super hairy guys are not typically viewed by females to be in the super sexy category. And when I say hairy, I’m talking about full beard, ‘stach, hairy chest, hairy legs kinda guys. Like our friend below:Hairy guy

Even in historical romances written in time periods in which full beards were the Long haired wet guy norm, the hero will often be described as a rogue non-conformist who raises judgmental eyebrows at his clean shaven visage. So beards might be a bust, but what does seem to raise female temperatures are guys with long hair.

From Fabio to present day, there are still plenty of romances with long-haired male models gracing the cover. Check out this recent one by Lynsay Sands:

The KeyHe’s got a smooth chest but the shaggy mane falls past his shoulders. Clearly there’s an element of bad-boy and rebelliousness that comes into play with long haired men. The buzz-cut clean ’50s morphed into the long-haired, “don’t trust anyone over 30” rebellious ’60s. But is it only that rogue association that makes us hot for hair? Or is it what you can do with the hair that gets us going? I remember the video by Madonna years ago, “La Isla Bonita,” in which she sashays by the dark haired guitar player and runs her fingers through his flowing locks before moving along.

Rockers almost always have long hair, and they ooze bad boy like an athlete oozes sweat. I mean, seriously, look at this guy. Not the kind of dude that daddies want their little girls bringing home. Which is exactly the appeal. 🙂

What do you think? Does the long hair make you swoon, or do you prefer your guy neatly trimmed? It’s something rather delicious to think about over the weekend.

Have a good one!

    Smooth chest with only a smattering of hair for me please, like my husband. And I miss my husband’s long dark ponytail that he cut off when he hit forty.

    Love this post! Bravo! Certainly there’s an element of youth and fierce in-your-face sensuality that goes with men having long hair.

    Charlotte Stein was on twitter raving about a luxuriant locked actor in the new Hobbit movie. Yes, a dwarf with killer cheekbones, beard n hair. She was praising the actor (not a dwarf in real life), but still, I think the movie is what set her off.

      Well, that just gives me another excuse to see the Hobbit. I’m all for killer cheekbones and long hair. For me, if a long-haired guy’s got a tattoo, also . . . well, now we’re talking. Hmmm, I think I’ll have to post about that!
