With sexy celebs like Hayden Panettiere and Renée Zellweger chopping off their long locks in favor of shorter styles, we had to wonder–what do guys think about the short hair trend? To find out, we polled 50 men in New York City’s Central Park to ask: Do you think short hair is sexy? We found that the majority of the men (62%!) preferred long hair over short. Check out their reasons why!
The guys who hated it said:
“To me, the women in these photos have hair that’s a little too short. Shoulder length or longer looks better on all women in general. I can’t pick out a single [celebrity] whose after shot I like more.”–Victor, 26
“I won’t say it doesn’t look good sometimes, but for the most part long hair looks good on all women. Personally, I’ve never met a woman who doesn’t look good with long hair. I can’t say the same for short hair.”–Kasey, 31
The guys who loved it said:
“Twenty years ago I would’ve said that I like long hair more. But now that I’m married I’ve learned that my wife is much happier dealing with short hair. Now I like short hair too.”–Walter, 42
“I read [a study] once that women are most likely to cut off their hair after a break-up out of fear of what their men will think. I’m not sure what that means but I for one like short hair more.”–Adam, 37

The heat is on and New York City ladies are stepping into the sunshine as summer is just around the corner. Before you restock your closet for warmer days, check out these emerging trends!
Blazers with Dresses
If you’re pondering a way to make those strapless floral frocks appropriate for the office, consider pairing a blazer with your outfit and slipping on a pair of heels or chunky espadrilles. The result? Professional with a side of whimsy. If your closet is filled with LBDs, consider a floral blazer for a vibrant touch. We like this heart-printed boyfriend blazer from Topshop. $110, topshop.com.
Be sure to choose a lightweight fabric for those sweltering summer afternoons, and remember to consider skirt or dress length when piecing your outfit together. Tuxedo blazers should be paired with shorter skirts, and cropped blazers look lovely with pencil skirts. We like this C&C California number, $110, at shopbop.com
Kevin Federline might have given the fedora a bad rep, but we’ve noticed that it gives just about any outfit a fresh, put-together feel. Straw fedoras worn with floral maxi-dresses will create an edgy, bohemian vibe; you can also channel the Olsen twins with skinny jeans and chunky ankle boots. Check out this uber-feminine fedora from Juicy Couture. $58, at Bloomingdales.com.
The next time you go out with the girls for salsa dancing and margaritas, throw on a fedora. A fitted cocktail dress combined with a black fedora (and a feather for the daring!) will help you look sassy and fashionable. Here’s a great option from Village Scandal for $64, thevillagescandal.com

Moms know best and Kylie Minogue is listening to her “mum’s” advice when it comes to beauty. The 40-yr old Australian pop star is giving up on Botox and instead using Pond’s Cold Cream. Pond’s has been around since 1846 as the trusted beauty brand of women for several generations and certainly the choice of celebrities to keep their skin beautiful. In an exclusive interview with the UK’s News of the World, Kylie dishes her method of aging gracefully. “It’s such an old classic [Pond’s]. My mum uses it. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and it really does work. It’s made such a difference.”
This classic rich cream deep cleans to remove make-up and impurities and leaves your skin soft and smooth. Pond’s Cold Cream gently cleans without stripping or drying while adding essential moisture to dry skin. Wow, it not only works as an alternative to Botox according to Kylie, but you’ll be able to save yourself some serious cash to splurge on some much needed vacations!
$5 jar of Pond’s Cold Cream or $700 Botox treatment… what would you choose?
