Michelle Williams Says Straight Guys Don’t Like Short Hair. Agree or Disagree?

Proof that the pixie cut is adorable.

Short hair on gURLs seems to be kind of a big deal to people, and we can’t be the only ones wondering why. After all, we think short hair on a gURL is cute. We don’t think it makes you look like a boy, or look less feminine, and we’ve got celebrity proof of that: Emma Watson, Pink, Maggie Gyllenhaal. So we were kind of surprised to hear Michelle Williams say that she thinks straight guys hate short hair.

Michelle, who has been rocking her cute blonde pixie cut for a while now, told Elle UK that, “I’ve really grown into it — I feel like myself with short hair. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!”

She added that she keeps her hair short in memory of her late husband Heath Ledger, saying, “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

We don’t think we can really agree with Michelle on this one. Just like anything else, the hairstyle you like on a gURL depends on your own personal taste. It seems a little dramatic to say no straight guy is into a pixie cut.

WDYT, gURLs? Do you have short hair? Do you think guys dig it? Or do you agree with Michelle — is long hair more attractive? Discuss below.

    I’m not even close to being gay, and I think that she looks great in short hair. She looks great in long hair also. The only style I don’t like is the Buster Brown style with bangs like
    she had towards the end of DC. Short hair vs long all depends on face and head shape.
    Emma Watson, fantastic short & ok long, Courtney Cox, great short, bad long,etc,etc.

    BTW, all of my friends love Michelle with short hair.
    I hope this can get to Michelle somehow !!!!!

    Thanks, Mark

    I believe her. Of course not every man in the world will hate short hair, but perhaps the ones she has come across might have tried to persuade her to grow it out. I personally have never come across a man who has said they prefer short haired girls, or even that they don’t mind what length a woman’s hair is. But then again I haven’t met many people.

    When I cut my hair short it was almost like a revolution within my body. I like being a woman and I took my boyish hair style as a challenge to start feeling more feminine. I threw away all my jeans, and decided I would start wearing skirts and dresses until I established my own style enough to reincorporate trousers and jeans to my wardrobe.
    I’m much more confident now than I was just 2 years ago, and while i’m not going to be so naive as to believe that my haircut was the sole thing that changed my confidence, I do believe it was a catalyst.

    (Also, Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger were never married, but they were engaged.)
