Do women like grey hair on men?

Does grey hair make men attractive?
According to a survey done on , the famous dating site, 72% of women said that grey hair makes a man look more attractive. I have also done a personal survey among few hundred female friends on Facebook and i got results that are very aligned with the results of but there are few important points to consider:

  • 1) If the man doesn't look old then grey is good: Some women said that grey hair only looks good on men if the men don't look very old compared to them.
  • 2) It depends on the amount of grey hair: Many women find men with grey hair attractive provided that a certain level of greying is there and again this points to age difference

Those two conclusions reminded me of another study which said that women prefer men who are few years older than them. In other words a young woman , who is 20 years old for example, might not find men with grey hair attractive as this might be a sign that this man is much older than her.

Of course there are women who like men who are much older than them but the majority of women go for men who are only few years older than them.

So the conclusion we can make is that most women will like grey hair if it didn't make the man seem much older than they are.

Why many women find men with grey hair attractive

In my book The psychology of physical attraction i said that women look for different factors across various domains to determine a man's attractiveness.

The degree of attachment a woman will have towards a man with grey hair will depend on her own interpretation of the significance of the grey hair. So if a woman has problems with immature men then she might find men with grey hair more attractive if she believed that grey hair signifies wisdom.

Wisdom, maturity and that the fact that the man is no longer a child are among the conclusions women make about some men when they see grey hair. Now depending on the women's love maps the degree of attraction towards men with grey hair will be determined.

Some women like men with grey hair because they remind them of their own fathers. This usually happens when a woman has a healthy attachment towards her father. Some women like grey haired men because of believing that they have lots of life experience. See Why do we get attracted to people who resemble our parents

In all cases it's the interpretation given to the meaning of grey hair that determines whether a woman will like it on not.

Each woman is a different case

In my book How to make someone fall in love with you i said that each person sees the world from his own angle based on the situations they have been through.

While it seems like the majority of women think that grey hair makes a man look attractive still this doesn't cancel the fact that in some cases the grey hair can be a turn off if the woman had different beliefs about it.

Some men try to even dye their hair grey to look more attractive but that's a wrong practice unless the man knows exactly what the woman he likes prefers.

It all starts with knowing what the person you are interested in prefers then making sure you have many of those things. This is the best strategy to attract a person to you.
