Since this is a romance blog, let’s take this to the next, obvious level. Hair and sexuality are intertwined, without question. But why?
As a woman and romance reader and author, I think hair is crucial to how sexy a man is. I’ve read or written about heroes that have long hair, buzz cuts and tousled-just-this-side-of-endearing-bedhead. But one thing all of my heroes have in common: sexy hair. Even though dentistry is my bill-paying profession for the moment, not even a handsome smile does as much for me or my heroines as sexy hair. And even before I did my research for this blog, I had a good idea why…
Healthy, sexy hair is tied to virile male hotness. Okay, that’s not a scientific term, but you get my drift. Hair News states that if genitalia is the primary sexual object, hair is the secondary object. News flash! I think us gals figured that out when we hit puberty and started noticing boys. Dirty, unattractive hair on a guy tells most of us that venturing closer to his primary sexual object is probably not a good idea. And ultimately, if sex is about procreation, then I’d much rather combine my DNA with the man with great hair. No way are my chromosomes venturing near Greasy boy's or Comb-over man’s.
So, here are a few visuals of what I think work for a man, in the hair department, And a couple that don’t.
THIS WORKS (and ladies, Halle Berry cut him loose, he's single again!)
THIS DOESN'T WORK (great actor and movie, really bad hair)
THIS WORKS, TOO (look at the hair, silly!)
But this DEFINITELY DOES NOT
And finally, one of my favorite covers of a hot guy/sexy hair. And the book was great too!
