A couple years ago in The Helsinki Diaries I shared a conversation with a Finnish girl about the importance of long hair:

I was excited to be talking to someone with a strong command of English. I defaulted into being chatty, but it didn’t take long to offend her when I said “I like girls with long hair.”

“So you discriminate against women?”

“Discriminate? It’s just a personal preference. Do you like guys taller or shorter than you?”

“Taller, but I give shorter guys a chance.”

“How many guys shorter than you have you seriously dated?”


“Okay then, it’s the same thing.”

“Not really because a girl who is bald could be an amazing person inside.”

“So if I was 200 kilos heavier, shorter, and bald, you would still talk to me?”

“Probably not,” she said.

I flipped my hand upside down as if to say “Well there you have it” but she refused to back down and insisted that liking girls with long hair was horrible. I was talking to a hyper-educated woman who spent god knows how many years in school, but accepting simple logic was still a work in progress. I knew she wouldn’t see my point of view, but the debater in me wouldn’t yield.

“Have you ever seen those commercials for African charities?” I asked.


“When they show images of the starving African children, have you noticed that they are always bald? It’s not because they go to the barber every week—it’s because when you don’t have enough protein in your diet, you don’t grow hair. Therefore hair is a sign of fitness, of health. When a girl has short hair, she’s mimicking a state of malnourishment.”

Not only was I right, but I underestimated how strongly long female hair correlates to health and fertility. In The Handbook Of Evolutionary Psychology by David M. Buss, a passage on female hair quality reveals the verdict on long hair:


There are four main points to take away from the above passage:

  • Longer hair length is perceived as more beautiful across a wide range of cultures
  • Hair is a highly visible indicator of human health
  • Poor health or starvation causes deficient, broken, ugly hair
  • Hair grows fastest in women during their peak fertility

If a woman cuts her hair to a short length, or shaves it outright in a Skrillex haircut, we can now confidently say that she is making herself appear less fertile, less beautiful, and less healthy. A woman cutting off healthy hair is one step away from literal cutting of her skin with a sharp object, because both behaviors denote a likely mental illness where the woman presents herself to society as more damaged than her genetic condition would indicate, suggesting that she has suffered environmental damage that has reduced her overall fitness. She must be monitored by state authorities so she doesn’t continue to hurt herself.

These three women are good examples of self-harm:

What should we think when deluded women are actively encouraged by society to harm themselves by cutting their hair instead of growing it out and looking beautiful? One that doesn’t care about the fertility of its women and, in turn, the needs of men who want to mate with fertile women. Unless there is something within a society that promotes beauty in the form of long hair, we have little choice but to conclude that it is sick, grotesque, and sterile.

    Something that a lot of people don’t know is that the same is applicable to men. Short hair or a lack of facial hair, messing with the state of nature, indicates a strong sickness and therefore lower SMV.

    1. MrBiIIGoode . April 15, 2015 at 9:54 am

      Does this apply to nose, ears and other areas of the body hair?

      1. Anon. April 15, 2015 at 11:35 am

        He is applying one argument to women, but when applied onto men it makes no sense?

        This is evolutionary psychology. Tribal leaders in caveman days had long hair and beards. Pure and simple, and women evolved to respond to it, just like men to long hair.

        Not every man has hair in the nose and ears. Hence, if this requires grooming, the man probably didn’t have genetic high-SMV in the first place.

        Take any clean-shaven man with short hair, and he WILL look more alpha in the natural state.

      7. Marissa April 28, 2015 at 5:55 pm

        Which civilization won? While I appreciate beards as much as the next woman, there is a practical advantage to clean-shavenness. I imagine this is why modern armies require their men to be shaved. Same thing with buzzcuts.

      8. George Tasker May 2, 2015 at 8:53 am

        I seem to remember Alexander the Great requiring his soldiers to be clean shaven. One less thing for the enemy soldiers to grab in battle.

      9. Mantis May 7, 2015 at 12:21 am

        Nah that was just because Alexander couldn’t grow a full beard.

      10. Alik Kaspr September 28, 2016 at 6:36 pm

        that is the same reason for woman to have short hair. One less thing for abuser/rapist to grab and much better chances to save your life in dangerous situations.

      15. Bo Jangles April 26, 2015 at 11:14 am

        Body hair is caused by dihydrotestosterone..a derivitive of testosterone and responsible for the development of the penis. I would guess its very possible.

    2. BernieGoetzFan April 15, 2015 at 9:55 am

      Perhaps – but I am not sure this impacts the perceived attractiveness of males to females. Lots of guys with short hair and no beard get lots of women. In fact, most of the men who are deemed sexy by women have short to shortish hair and no beard (though many now sport a decent amount of stubble).
      No bald women are attractive to men. Remember Sinead O’Connor? There is a light skinned black woman in the headlines a lot right now (forget her name) and while she has a hot body she is ugly as she is nearly bald.

        She is a high-yella. On wiki it says her father is white and mother is Cape Verdean (black) and Scottish.
        In any event she could grow long hair if she wanted to but chooses to stay nearly bald like Sinead O’Connor.

      5. DeCode April 16, 2015 at 11:40 pm

        Amber Rose is actually your run of the mill white stripper bitch… She just shaved her hair off around the time Kanye started tricking on her

      Height and muscle mass are stronger health signals, of course women negatively respond to balding, but otherwise grooming is probably mostly a social signal for women

      1. Bearded Bear April 15, 2015 at 5:00 pm

        Height is not a sign of health at all. But taller men may be the preference of women indeed. Perhaps it shows that they are more dominant.

      2. Anon. April 15, 2015 at 5:07 pm

        It’s a sign of hierarchy. Tribal leaders were always the tallest members of the tribe.

        It’s why you always get that feeling of “being small” next to someone taller than you. You can feel it strongly in your gut, it’s as if you’re inexplicably more submissive. But with someone much weaker and smaller you feel like the boss.

      3. OrthodoxChristian April 16, 2015 at 12:49 am

        “It’s a sign of hierarchy. Tribal leaders were always the tallest members of the tribe.”

        Do you have any actual evidence of that? The Stone Age didn’t end until VERY recently for various groups in Africa, South America, etc. I’ve never heard any anthropologist make a statement like that, so I’m thinking you’re just projecting your caveman fantasies into prehistory.


      4. Anon. April 16, 2015 at 7:01 am

        Have you ever felt submissive towards someone shorter? I know I haven’t.

        You must take what is obvious over your own personal insecurities.

      5. bear April 18, 2015 at 3:52 pm

        Andrew Carnegie one of the richest men alive and a titan of industry was one short guy ( less than 5′ 5″)
        I have,also read many were very intimated by him.
        that said one can’t deny height will help with the dominance factor

        Is six inches enough to shut her up?

      9. Mantis May 7, 2015 at 12:25 am

        Didn’t royals and aristocrats like to breed for height? Sure not every single on of them was tall, but I’m sure being tall was considered fitting for nobles. Some harder evidence would be great though, it could just be hearsay. 🙂

      10. Bo Jangles April 26, 2015 at 11:19 am

        Health is directly related to health. The children of guatamalans in the US are generally several inches taller than their parents. The dutch went from being famous for being short to famous for being tall.

      11. freend September 12, 2015 at 10:22 am

        A few centuries ago Scots were quite short. Not now. Malnutrition was a serious problem even in the 1800s.

    4. Mofo April 15, 2015 at 1:33 pm

      We’ve been through this many times: male attractiveness to women is based on a long list of mostly hidden factors, of which physical appearance is only one aspect. That is why game works, because it serves as an immediate proxy for those hidden qualities of fitness that women gauge men on. Female attractiveness to men, however, is almost exclusively based upon physical appearance, which is a direct proxy for health and fertility. The ultimate reason for this difference is their small number of extremely valuable sex cells versus our extremely large number of expendable sex cells. Evo Psych 101.

      Long story short: yes, external signs of health do count some for men, but it only comprises somewhere between 10 and 40% of your overall attractiveness to women, whereas it comprises 90-99% of women’s attractiveness to men.

      And I’m saying this from the perspective of someone who virtually runs the table on physical attractiveness cues.

      1. Anon. April 15, 2015 at 1:49 pm

        Absolutely. But physique IS a component of male SMV, not the most important, but it does play a role.

        In the same way that good features show health for women, certain facial features show health for men. As does height, a muscle mass which shows good genetics (not too lean or too big, think of the mass a tribal leader would get in usual day-to-day gathering and hunting), and for good or for bad, no signs that shows sickness.

        Behaviour is the chunk of male SMV, but physical aspects do play a role. Also, behaviour plays a small role in women aswell (think of feminine body movements, voice tone, general pleasantness and child-likeness.)

      2. Jay April 19, 2015 at 7:03 pm

        Facial symmetry is a major indicator of genetic quality in both sexes.

  3. MrBiIIGoode . April 15, 2015 at 9:59 am

    What about long fingernails? Should we all stop paring our nails?

    1. virgil April 15, 2015 at 11:36 am

      Nails can be easily damaged during normal activities, so long nails are hardly a reliable health indicator. Also, before civilization emerged, men did much more work with their bare hands that would cause nails to naturally file short and/or break. Kind of like domestic dogs need their claws periodically trimmed, but ones that spend a lot of time outdoors can usually do without that.

  4. ng85 April 15, 2015 at 11:50 am

    My Kryptonite is a girl whose hair is long enough to reach the bottom of her breasts and longer. But very few girls in their 20’s or older let their hair grow that long, preferring to let it fall between their shoulders and general breast area. I’ve also found that as many women reach their late 20’s the absolute longest they’ll grow their hair will be shorter and shorter. In their teenage years it might be down their back – In their early 20’s it’s chest-length – By their late 20’s it’s a little past shoulder length. I don’t know if this is due to general maintenance issues, or if it’s physically harder for a woman in their late 20’s to actually grow long hair that remains strong and silky.

    Likewise, very rarely do you see a really old woman with long hair. Does hair go to shit like a woman’s looks and fertility as she gets older? Is a woman’s hair no longer able to be grown really long once she hits menopause?

    1. Anon. April 15, 2015 at 11:54 am

    3. Prudzsky April 23, 2015 at 2:57 pm

      Also when women dye their hair they usually have to cut the ends shorter because it wrecks their hair and even more so when they bleach it for a blonde look, I know a woman that has to cut up to 4″ off every time she bleached it so with most women adding some form of color it eats up their hair and damages it. I love long hair too and hate when they wreck it like that

      1. ng85 April 24, 2015 at 11:12 am

        That makes sense. And as we know, whatever a woman’s hair is naturally like there’s a chance she’ll try and change it at some point in her life (Straight to curly and vise-versa, and any color besides her natural one). I also have long hair and I get compliments from girls all the time about it. They ask me what my secret to maintaining my hair is, and all I do is shampoo it and sometimes blow dry it. The reason why it looks naturally good is because I don’t fuck with it using chemicals or hot irons.

        “That’s because it’s bizarre not because it’s sexy. People gawk at midgets too.”

        Both sexes would gawk at midgets about equally. Notice he only mentioned the men. If the women found it “bizarre,” then they would have been gawking as well; if the women didn’t find it “bizarre,” then neither did the men; so there must have been something else at work.

    They still reduce their natural attractions…

    However their lesser sisters think that they can mimic this nonsense, but that doesn’t upgrade their appearance to superhot. It just makes them homely and maimed.

        Yeah, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. You would think all this “I want to be different and independent” shit that makes them get their flesh vandalized and graffitied with tats would make at least a few of them think “Hey everyone has short hair–I’m gonna be unique and let mine grow” but nope, they all in unison dress and act terribly and masculine.

      2. C. April 24, 2015 at 5:09 pm

        Most women can’t commit to the long process of growing out their hair… for there are no shortcuts. After awhile they get tired and want to try new things with it – mainly chopping it shorter and dyeing it.
        So yeah, we women are programmed to feel that hairdyes and trendy hairdos are a must-have thing. The pressure to conform really is there. My mane goes all the way to my hips and I often get to hear how dull it is and that I should make it more interesting.

      That’s pretty good trolling. You almost had me there for a moment.

      1. Odile Lee May 1, 2015 at 2:16 pm

        If it is for her, why does she need to share this?? I do not understand.

      2. Puk September 14, 2017 at 9:52 pm

        I don’t fathom why men follow Roosh’s advice, the man is the most ridiculous example ever.

        He is not decent looking what so ever, he is narcissistic, loves the way he looks, thinks he’s incredibly intelligent although the man only has a biology degree and a shitty SAT score. He’s downright mean, lives in his mothers basement, only date teenagers/college students that are average looking at best (he is in his late thirties may I remind you) humiliating them online for his own benefit, the man has no wife, no kids, no longterm relationships, a shitty career where a majority of women hate him and even a great deal of guys as well.

        WHY would you listen to such a man?

    Some thoughts: Actresses have to wear wigs on the job. It must be very uncomfortable, and it must be hell for the wig master to prevent the actress from looking like she’s got water on the brain, if her own hair is long. As for young women, most of them have long hair nowadays. It reminds me of the 1970s. When a woman cuts her hair short you really notice her breasts.

  21. Kathy Kaufman Weber April 18, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    “Discriminate? It’s just a personal preference.” and then you go on to list all the health and mental things that are wrong with a woman who just chooses to have short hair. NO> You had it right before. It is YOUR personal preference. Nothing more. You are a nut. Hair grows back. Your craziness is most likely there to stay.

  22. skillet April 19, 2015 at 5:02 am

    Curious. A beautiful girl who cuts her hair is not that beautiful any more. When I was in my 20’s (before getting married 23 years ago), I do not think I even once asked out a girl with short hair. Never even tried to hit on one in a bar. I simply was not interested. Once dating (or married), I was always relieved when my girl got over her short hair kicks. Yes, I would still love my wife of 23 years if she cut her hair, but I would not be happy about it.

    I had always just thought it was me. But short hair is just universally ugly for girls. Other dudes seem to think so too. Interesting.

  23. The12thUnknownMan April 19, 2015 at 5:35 am

    Interesting how “Salon” magazine wrote about this Roosh article.

    In the comments there, many of the fine specimens of human stool talked of explicitly:

    Beating Roosh to death.
    Gang raping and/or killing Roosh.
    Torturing Roosh (to death).

    One woman who has some condition, said Roosh is correct, why not pay attention to the science, and wow, did she get abused in those comments.

    Amazing, must be seen to be believed.

  24. Ryan April 19, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    this is by far one of the most idiotic things i have ever heard,

  25. Lauren April 19, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    Then why are men with short hair considered more attractive if they’re “not health”? And if this is so, why are girls expected to shave their underarms, legs, bikini line, ect? If hair is so “fertile” and “beautiful” then why can’t women have it everywhere?

    1. Scandibro April 20, 2015 at 3:46 pm

      Because men and women don’t look for the same things and have different indicators of health. I swear you young women are literally retarded these days and have ZERO common sense.

      Men grow beards, because beards are a function of DHT – DiHydro Testosterone, a very potent derivative of testosterone.

      That is why clean shaven men always score the lowest on sexual attraction tests, while thick stubble scores the highest.

      Stubble for men = Long hair for women.

      Helped you out?

      1. trx2 May 2, 2015 at 3:22 pm

        A lot of women find men with facial hair unattractive and think they are hiding something.

      2. Puk September 14, 2017 at 9:53 pm

        This is not true for all countries. Facial hair in many asian countries are seen as savage and females find it repulsive.

  26. Guesterino April 20, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    Wow. If there’s a Guinness Book record for assholism, Roohs here has it all wrapped up.

  27. Mr.H April 20, 2015 at 3:43 pm

    I can’t stand short hair on women. I always ask myself, why the heck would they do such a thing.

  28. Joe Shanley April 21, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    I don’t understand why numbers 1, 3, and 5 are in there.

  29. Fergun Connell April 23, 2015 at 7:48 am

    I dunno. At least they’re not bald like Britney was. I like the girl in Dracula 2000 too, she looked good in short hair.

  30. Max April 25, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    For my purposes, long hair in a woman is a non-negotiable.

  31. Bo Jangles April 26, 2015 at 11:09 am

    Feminism says if a man likes it im against it. She was just following the prime directive no matter the logical fallacies that follow. My brother did the same thing to a girl he says he liked big tits she gets offended on que…later in the conversation it turns out she likes big hands on a man. And naturally the irony flies way over her head.

  32. Lex April 28, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    I honestly this article crazy you want to tell the whole world what you think is beautiful then you have to try and over sell it with bogus articles that make no sense obvious women 70 years are less fertile that has been a known fact forever heck women become less fertile with every ovulation cycle. Oh and you want to talk about self harm I’m glad to know that I’m harming myself by cutting my hair short to donate to people in need because i thought i was being selfless cutting my hair that i love for someone else so they can feel beautiful to and don’t have to go through the shame people like you put on them you have no clue what people go through for all you know your shaming people that are going through chemo! oh i also find it interesting that you say in you “terms” don’t be a jerk when you are one

    1. trx2 May 2, 2015 at 3:19 pm

      Well obviously this guy is just some schmo who is recycling the 1960’s book on being a pick up artist and infusing it with his own personal biases and passing it off as legitimate evolutionary ‘facts’. All these ideas are on the site AskMen also, another site that glorifies being a ‘playa’ or whatever delusional concept of manhood is getting written about that day. The common thread I see is that they (the men who write and share the views of these sites) are at their core scared little man-babies who have carefully crafted a world where they and their whims will be indulged by subservient beautiful women. Much like the mythical 21 virgins that awaited the 9/11 terrorists– same cave-man mentality, maybe dressed up in different religions and different clothes and pretending to be oh-so–scientific and sophisticated. For whatever reason they both desire and hate women, set them up as objects to be conquered and then scorned for allowing themselves to be conquered by them. If that isn’t an elaborate self-hatred, I don’t know what is.

  33. Reason And Believing April 29, 2015 at 9:53 am

    Dr Oz had an entire book on this very subject.

  34. Someone with Long Hair June 17, 2015 at 10:25 am

    “A woman cutting off healthy hair is one step away from literal cutting of her skin with a sharp object, because both behaviors denote a likely mental illness where the woman presents herself to society as more damaged than her genetic condition would indicate, suggesting that she has suffered environmental damage that has reduced her overall fitness. She must be monitored by state authorities so she doesn’t continue to hurt herself.”

    This whole article is very offensive and rude – but especially this paragraph.
    The former is a matter of preference, and has nothing to do with self harm – which for many people (men AND women) is a coping mechanism, and is not a way of presenting themselves as “damaged”. Different people have different preferences.
    “She must be monitored by state authorities so she doesn’t continue to hurt herself” – excuse me, what?
    This is extremely insulting to people who may be struggling with mental health conditions, which affect both men and women.

  35. Proud and beautiful feminist July 1, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    It is 112° where I live right now. Fuck you and your long hair preference. My man loves me with short hair and I’m not trying to appeal to chauvinists like you and your ilk. That is all I’m going to say about that.

    1. TyKo Steamboat April 2, 2016 at 6:26 pm

      Your man is a pussy & because he is dating you, he is a loser 🙁

  36. JC July 21, 2015 at 3:15 am

    You guys are shallow idiots. Long or short hair is a personal choice, nobody cares about fertility or how it was perceived hundreds of years ago. There are lots of women and men who are beautiful with short or long hair, healthy, strong, and not to mention stylish. Roosh i used to read your shit but if i want to read shallow opinions about how men or women like with this or that and senseless stereotypes i better go read Fashion Police.

  37. being.chinmay July 31, 2015 at 8:38 am

    Great !I’ve been
    searching google for several hours looking for relevant info on this, they
    definitely need to position your site on the first page!

    Except that short hair on women can be very sexy. And implying that willingly cutting it off is akin to mental illness is … well retarded. I know this scares you guys, but women have the choice to cut their hair any way they like. I mean women deal with your neck beards and mouth-breathing without complaining all over the internet.

    And yeah, yeah: Beta male, white-knight, liberal, take the red pill, etc..

    1. TyKo Steamboat April 2, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      I would say less than 5% of the female population look better with short hair as opposed to longer hair.

  39. Emily Rose Campbell September 18, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    Would it ever occur to you that a woman would do something for herself without caring whether or not men may approve of it? That beauty, sexual gratification, and men aren’t the most important aspects of a woman’s life? That maybe, just maybe, a woman who cuts her hair does it because it’s less maintenance, it feels better, or it just suits her?

    For example, I am female and my main focus in life is getting my degree and sending time with my friends. I don’t have the Time, patience, or desire to make myself look pretty for someone else. I have short hair and I’m proud of it, it suits me. I’m Heterosexual but if men don’t like me the way I am, fuck it. Being alone doesn’t scare me and I’m sure there are many women who feel the same way I do.

    I just want to give the people reading this a different perspective, having short hair and not caring what other people think of you is not damaging yourself, it’s empowering.

    1. TyKo Steamboat April 2, 2016 at 6:23 pm

      That’s fine. In theory, a woman cutting her hair lowers her visual appeal which, in turn, means she will attract lower quality men.
      So you don’t have to care, but suitors will.

  41. Hejsssaa November 7, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    What if having tight curly hair that shrinks. Not everybody is born with long straight flowing hair.:(

  42. Harryet January 19, 2016 at 5:17 pm

    I don’t understand what you are trying to say. What is the reason why do you prefer women with long hair? Is just about beauty an sexappeal or do you feel more constable because it’s a proof for good & strong health?

    1. TyKo Steamboat April 2, 2016 at 6:21 pm

      Clearly he stated both of those reasons as why he & most men prefer long hair.

  43. Ava Tara March 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    Disgusting and ignorant article. All these women look beautiful before AND after!

    1. TyKo Steamboat April 2, 2016 at 6:20 pm

      Men prefer long hair even if they will not admit it. It’s nature & this article is very accurate in it’s explaination

  44. Alik Kaspr September 28, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    So i see VAST MAJORITY OF MEN lack protein in their dieats and are probably infertile (those with balding heads) or do constant self-harm (those who maintain their short hair by cutting healthy hair regularly)!
    Thank you for this article, you opened my eyes! I will go lesbian and will be with a long-haired woman just like myself, and we.ll have healthy cloned kids!

  45. Bean Noreen October 17, 2016 at 12:00 am

    I heard that if u stay under water for one hour u can see every girl ever with long hair just like that

  46. Anonymous April 8, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    So do you men encourage women growing out their pubes, leg hair etc.? I bet you don’t even though it’s the exact same protein as in hair. I have short hair, but you don’t have to look at these legs twice to see that this girl’s body definitely has some extra protein to push out.

  47. Fletch September 29, 2017 at 11:07 pm

    Heh, the last pic with the girl and the bird, the girl has what one youtuber refers to as “the mental illness haircut”.
