Let’s be candid, ladies:

Each one of us has different preferences when it comes to the kind of man we want, especially in terms of looks. For most of us, we want our lovers to have aesthetic bodies, a good sense of fashion, and nice hair.

And speaking of which:

We have varying interpretations of what nice hair is. So, if yours mean nicely trimmed, textured hair or a complete shave paired with one of these beard styles, this post is for you. Over the course of the next 10 minutes, I will guide you through how to convince your boyfriend to cut his hair without coming across as too controlling.

Makes sense? Let’s get started.

Propose An Interest In Hair Barbering

This technique works on adventurous men who believe that love is all about sacrifices. So, if your boyfriend falls into this category, this is the way to go. Instead of telling him straight to cut his hair, you may tell him you’re interested in trying your hands at grooming hair for men. You will be surprised when he offers his long hair for this. And in the scenario where he did not, you can make the request yourself.

Compliment Men With Long Hair

Watch and study your boyfriend closely. If he is the jealous type – someone that’s conscious of what you like in other men and always wants to make it available in himself – this is for you. All you have to do is compliment men with long hair. Now, you don’t want to come across as developing interests in other men. So, timing is important. I suggest doing this while you guys are Netflixing and chilling. You know, you can just easily compliment a guy starring in the movie with a short haircut.

Inspire Him To Cut His Hair

Inspiration works on almost every human being, whether male or female. So you might as well try that to get your long-haired boyfriend to cut his hair short. But how do you go about this? Well, easy; tag him along on your next visit to the salon. You want to make sure this is a unisex saloon where he can be inspired by other men cutting their hair. You can use this same technique to get him to be dedicated to working out. All you have to do is take him on a visit to the gym or frequently watch documentaries on bodybuilding with him on Netflix. Easy but effective.

Show That You Care About His Health

This is a bit tricky but if you go do it carefully you’ll wind up with your guy’s hair transformed. By showing that you’re concerned about the possible health concerns in keeping long hair, you can get him to visit the barber for a nice short Buzz Cut. Be careful not to be so persisting or too “lecturing”. For instance, in summer, you can frequently tell him, “you must get hot with your long hair.” Do you get it?

In Conclusion

Love and relationships are all about compromises and sacrifices. But we should never try to be at the controlling end. Especially when it comes to making life-changing suggestions to our spouses, we should always respect their decisions. To that end, I have created this easy guide of four ways to get your boyfriend to cut his hair without sounding too controlling.
