Research: Top five turn-ons for women on first date with a man
By Mirror | September 16th 2015
A man with a ponytail is the biggest turn-off for women looking for love online.
A poll of 2,000 men and women actively looking for love online revealed the top five turn ons and turn offs for both men and women - and the best and worst hairstyles to have if you want to be lucky in love.
It revealed what women don’t want when it comes to hairstyles in potential partners - with ponytails, like former Arsenal legend David Seaman, or more recently David Beckham, the biggest turn off.
When it came to female hair-dos, men favoured blondes over brunettes - and hated short hair and ‘obvious hair extensions’, according to the poll by hair product Fudge Urban Matte Head Master.
Claire Cavendish, 25, of Eastbourne, East Sussex, said: “If I see a guy with a ponytail of a top knot on my dating profile I’ll get rid of him straight away.
“I won’t even look at his profile, I just do not ever want to have to sit down for a drink with a guy who looks so ridiculous.”
Adam Hendry, 31, of Chesham, Bucks, said: “To be honest, I’m pretty much interested in any woman who is interested in me.
“I am a little bit put off my those weird eyebrows, but that wouldn’t stop me going on a date.”
The worst male hair styles voted by women are;
- A ponytail - 41 per cent
- Hair longer than yours - 39 per cent
- A man bun/top knot - 37 per cent

- Subtle quiff - 28 per cent

- An undercut - 16 per cent
The worst five female hair styles voted biggest turn-offs by men;
- Obvious hair extensions - 51 per cent
- Brightly-coloured hair - 42 per cent

The top five turn-ons for men were a nice smile (66 per cent), good dress sense (53 per cent), a light tan (29 per cent), no make-up (22 per cent), tattoos (18 per cent).
