A recent story in People claims Pete Wentz actually isn't a fan of wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's recently-cropped hair. Her new cut is sharp and crisp—she looks sophisticated, more like the hip young mom she is and less like a teenage pop star she used to be. But it isn't really a surprise that no matter how much I like her new style, her husband might not. The beauty lore has always been that men prefer women to have long hair. In my own life, it proves certainly as true. I've had a chin-length bob and a pixie cut before, and my female friends always gushed about how much they liked my hair short, using words like "gamine" and "adorable." The men? Not so much. I've noticed that men (as I observed from my guy pals) pay more attention and check out women with long hair, along with breasts and hips. It's one of the most obvious features that makes women look different from the male species. In a sweet move of support, though, my boyfriend ever claims he really prefers short hair on me. Hear that, Wentz?
