I’m confused by this “hair extensions” concept
Cosmo poll on p126, Sept 2012 issue – asks…
“We asked 100 guys on the street – Would it be be fun or freaky if a girl had short hair one date, then long hair on the next due to extensions?”
Apparently 61% guys said extensions are ‘Fun’, and 31% said ‘Freaky’.
This is total shit. Where could this poll be taken where guys exist who respond that this would be fun? ‘Fun‘ is photo booths, renting a convertible for the day, or having a sand-castle-building showdown/extravaganza. Britney’s hair on the right is not ‘fun’.
I polled 4 guys, and across the board, they landed on the “don’t care” side initially. Frankly, guys currently don’t notice a girl’s haircut – why would we notice a hair extension?
When I pushed for an answer, the ambivalence turned into “Actually, I would be confused, and concerned.”
Most guys I know prefer to be the “surpriser”, doing something cool to get our girl excited. It’s not our comfort zone to get the surprised when hair length changes radically. In fact, that gets us asking a few more questions:
- What else may be fake? Is that the world’s most impressive water-bra she’s wearing? Are those dentures?
- What in the hell are “extensions” anyway? Will these things come off randomly? Will I have to pick up her fake hair around my house? Is there such a thing as “female pattern baldness”, and does she have it?
- Are extensions something that will make her super-high maintenance? Will we, as a couple,be an extra 30 minutes late at all times?
- If we’re in bed, and she said “pull my hair”, should I pull her fake hair, or real hair? Will she drop her drawers one day, and perhaps be wearing a her’kin? (merkin for girls)
Basically, real guys say that hair extensions are “whatever”, at best. At worst, there’s a lot of downside, so we recommend not to bother with them at all.
