Curly Hair Debate: Are Men Curlphobic?

Stop the Curl Bashing Campaign

When it comes to hair type, do men prefer women with long straight hair?

According to The Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger, if women want a shot at dating one of her high-flying bachelors, they better get out their flat iron.

Stanger, who has updated her look this season with loose curls, insists that her millionaires prefer straight hair: “Men appreciate hair they can run their fingers through—and they don’t want to get them snagged in scraggly, frizzy, pubic-looking bird’s nests.”

After years of offending curly-haired women, the curly community at has responded to the reality TV matchmaker’s anti-curls tirade:

“Stanger appears to be living in a time warp where only one standard of beauty exists: the Barbie Doll. In today’s multicultural world, women are celebrated for their own unique beauty—whether it be straight, wavy or superkinky. Just look at stars like Beyonce, Shakira, and AnnaLynne McCord.”
