If you’re planning on grabbing her number as fast as you’re grabbing drinks at the bar, you’re going to need to look the part.
There’s no nice way to put this, but it’s time for a haircut if you don’t have one of these looks going on.
The Possible Poet/Artist
This is the haircut that most men try to pull off, but it’s gonna take more than a visit from Regina at SuperCuts to get you looking like you’re John Mayer.
She’s good, but she’s not a damn miracle worker.
You’re going to have to go to a real hairstylist or barber in order to get this right. A cheap haircut is simply not going to cut it (literally), if you’re trying to pick up chicks.
You see, your hair is kind of how makeup works for girls. The better your hair looks, the better you look. If you don’t spend money on a haircut and the right products, then you’re looking like a consistently dumpier version of yourself.
At a certain age, you’ve got the realize there is some things worth spending a little extra money on. Especially if it benefits your success rate on a night out. Ask the guy at the opposite end of the bar if his $5.00 haircut worked out for him.
Good hair is the best accessory that you can have when you’re a dude. Grab a blow dryer, some pomade, and start looking like you are “the sensitive type” even if you aren’t.
The “I Smoke Cigarettes Outside”
Disclaimer: Look, long hair only looks good on a SELECT FEW guys.
Seriously, not everyone can grow their hair out. If you’re even seeing a shred of a receding hair line, you don’t want to venture into this territory. People will make Rogaine jokes about you. To your face.
I’m of the opinion that long hair shouldn’t even be that long. The only dude that can pull off long hair beyond his shoulders is Khal Drogo. If you are not Khal Drogo, do not grow your hair past the point of no return.
Long stringy hair is not going to pick up any ladies. You’re going to look like serial killer.
Long hair looks great on guys when it is around ear length and styled. You’re also going to need a little bit of body in it as well, because it’ll need to be styled. Guys with manageable curly hair can always use this particular haircut to shine. Women love some luscious locks, no doubt about that.
There’s no better way to look like a cool guy than to have some long, wavy hair and a five o’clock shadow. Trust me on this one.
I’ll tell you from a woman’s perspective that a beard seriously has the potential to change a man’s face from a 5 to a 10. I don’t know what it is, but a well-groomed beard is like a magical sorcerer conducting spells on your behalf.
I’ve taken beard polls of my own and I’ve found that most females love a solid beard on a guy. Key word, solid. If you can’t grow facial hair, don’t try. Don’t put an ounce of effort into it. You will fail, you will be rejected, and you will be told to leave the room, possibly even the entire bar.
If you can grow a beard, then utilize it to it’s full effect. Just make sure you don’t grow it to a length where you look like a deranged lumber jack. Keep it sculpted, have you barber do something to it, or don’t grow one at all.
Pair it with a modern hair cut and it will change your life. I’m not even exaggerating. I know guys who look like completely different human beings with an awesome haircut and a sweet beard. Trust me, you want in on this.
The Serious Part
Peaky Blinders is an amazing TV show, with amazing haircuts. But pulling off a Thomas Shelby can be difficult. So maybe don’t use a 1 on your skull and instead leave a little to work with on the sides. Not everyone is a male model and that’s okay. The point of this blog is to just make you better looking. We don’t expect you to come straight in with the complete package ready to go.
Starting off with a serious part is a great way to dip your toes in the hair styling waters. Maybe you’re not ready to fully experiment with trendy haircuts.
Just do something that you feel comfortable with. If you aren’t comfortable, it’s going to show when you’re chatting with women. She’s going to notice and think that you have confidence issues, which is a total bummer. This exercise is designed for you to go in with full assurance that you’re getting her number.
You can do this. You’re a legend. Showing a little skin is a good thing.
The Example of What Not to Do
The Insane Amount of Product Use
Okay, so messy guy hair is kind of like a girl’s messy bun. I bet you didn’t know that it takes the average woman 92 minutes to sloppily fix her hair. Well, it does. Gender equality is in fair play here when it comes to men having the perfect “just rolled out of bed” look. If you slide out of bed and straight into her DMs, you’re going to be met with the emoji girl that is crossing her arms in a boldly stated block move.
This style is similar to the first one in that you’re going to have to keep growing your beautiful locks longer on top and keep getting the sides of your head shaved down. This one is a little bit more bold in its efforts to create such a stark contrast between long and short, but I’m super into it and I like to think I know what women like.
Because I am one. A hot one at that. Well, pretty hot, at least.
Confidence, a great haircut, a Michael Jackson “Bad” beard, and dressing well are the top ways you’re going to score big.
Now, schedule your next haircut. There’s work to do.
