Girls in Baseball Caps: Which Look Is a Fashion Don't?

We always thought we looked super cute in a baseball cap. But apparently, it's one of the looks that girls love but guys hate.

TotalBeauty.com surveyed 100 men to find out which hair and makeup styles they liked the least, and baseball hats were a definite "don't," even on sexy actress Jessica Biel.

The guys gave the look a "4" on the sexiness scale, calling it "boring," "lazy" and "plain."

But at least one cap-lover said: "I feel like she would be easy to talk to and she is low maintenance." Now that's a guy we want to meet!

Men also dislike strong bangs, calling the look, "A little intimidating/unapproachable" and "trying to hide something and a bit pretentious."

They hate buns (the hair kind), describing the style as "The housewife on the way to the supermarket look."

Ponytails are, "A valiant attempt at hiding bed hair," red lipstick "Pretty much kills my desire to ask her out," shag haircuts look "dirty," wild curls are too "'80s" and dark and smoky eyes are too "'90s."

Did the guys get it right? Which look do you dislike?

    Strong bangs
    .... None Of the Above would have worked for me, but I did choose my Least Fave

    Had this pic been on the list, perhaps BB Caps would have been my choice ....

    Fedora, the original baseball cap, would be a 10 even if it were on a dog.

    Each look works differently on each girl. My wife can all those looks equally well. I just happen to be extremely partial to Ponytails. Baseball caps have to be done the right way though.

    Wrapped braiding (a la Yulia Tymoshenko) is much nicer a style (and keeps hair out-of-way just as well).

    I never got this one. I mean if you wanna look like an elderly librarian, knock yourself out, I guess. But it's not remotely attractive.

    I'll agree with the wild curls being too '80s, and too much make-up of any kind is off-putting, but a subtle amount can look really nice (isn't that the whole point?)

    I don't really have an opinion on bangs - not that I can think of, anyway - but I think a girl in a cap can look pretty cute. Ms. Biel certainly does, anyway. And ponytails are hot; I don't care what anybody says.

    I would much rather see a baseball cap on a woman than excessive makeup.

    I HATE girls in buns...........too old fashions or Amish. Not all girls in ballcaps look good but they have to have a ponytail going thru the back just as not everyone will look good in any or all of these choices. I think it comes down to a facial shape or features.

    compared to all the options this makes the most sense
    the others are still popular to many
    i like pony tails and messy buns
    also it seems that girls haven't worn caps since the 90s or so

    TBH, I don't think girls really usually look good in baseball caps. The rest of these are all attractive lol.

    Since she has no control over that, I chose it.

    I seriously doubt that she could make a fashion don't. She would be beautiful no matter what she did.

    Baseball caps make everyone (including baseball players) look like cartoon morons.

    They're even worse, worn backward, sideways or with a big price tag tied on.

    At least she the girl in the picture knows how to put one on right. If the guys who put them on backward could see how stupid they look.
  • mklprc 2011/09/25 19:54:05

    One thing boys and girls have in common: both look stupid in baseball caps. The ones who really ARE stupid are easy to spot - they wear them backwards.

    All of these looks are not fashion don'ts. You can rock them out if you do it right.
  • Frank 2011/09/25 17:19:59

    Actually nothing. An attractive woman is an attractive woman. I don't care if she is wearing a baseball cap, a bun, bangs, red lipstick, overalls or a barrell- well maybe the barrell is a bit too much. But the point is I would enjoy the company of a woman no matter how she dresses or wears her hair- for the most part there are exceptions.

    This young lady would look great even if she were wearing a burlap sack and cowboy hat. It's not what you wear it's how and who is wearing it....

    Really don't think any of these are "fashion Dont's" , General statements like this are difficult to respond to because a lot of what looks good depends on the attitude of the person.
