Do men prefer natural beauty?

It is interesting to know that many men, when asked, prefer natural beauty over hair extensions, false eyelashes and heavy layers of make-up, bright-colored tresses and false nails. Men report that, yes, they may look at women with all of these adornments but personally rather their spouses, mothers, daughters and girlfriends natural or at least wear all of the above with moderation and not what they consider excessive. Moreover, some men like the idea of knowing how their significant other genuinely looks without all of the extras. They want to know what you look like when you wake up in the morning. Conversely, some women will tell you that they have become slaves to wearing make-up and other things to accentuate or ‘enhance’ their natural features that they can’t even imaging leaving the home without any of these ‘enhancements’. They wouldn’t be caught dead without! These words actually came out of the mouth of women known personally and in passing. Some of them said that when they look in the mirror, all they concentrate on is their flaws (blemishes, pimples, discoloration, etc.). Clearly, these are not all men and women’s sentiments but a great amount of individuals from both sexes share these same thoughts and opinions. What are your thoughts and feelings about natural beauty, moderate accessorizing/accentuating, and extravagant and liberal wearing of make-up; hair extensions including false eyelashes; iridescent hair colors; and so on…In researching for similar articles, this article titled, "WHAT MEN REALLY THINK" has with interviews from a few men and their response about the above discussion peak an interest. http://www.beautylish.com/a/vprmy/what-men-really-think

Interestingly, there are men of the opposite race/culture who appreciate another race/culture’s natural beauty in regards to African American/Black women’s natural texture compared to men of that same race/culture. Wonder why?

Is it true that white men appreciate natural hair more than Black men do?

The author Dr. Corey Guyton, of the article, "WHITE MEN APPRECIATE NATURAL HAIR MORE BLACK MEN: A BROTHA'S RESPONSE"
is honest about his insecurities that cause him to not appreciate his wife's decision to wear her hair natural. He discusses the socialization of black men and how they have trouble embracing natural black hair styles and textures. The author also shares his childhood and adolescent years of being around black women within the church, school and home, who put relaxers in their hair so he didn't exactly grow up with the women who embraced their African-heritage or kinky-coily-curly texture. This proves the point made in a previous post here about the brain-washing, self-hatred, conditioning and ignorance that still exist in many communities and within family concerning this issue. Check out the article. Very interesting: http://thegenuinescholar.com/white-men-appreciate-natural-hair-more-than-black-men-a-brothas-perspective/
