Hair extensions produced Kate Gosslin's sexy new look; the jury's still out on the authenticity of First Lady Michelle Obama's stylish bob. At best, "gone today, here tomorrow" styles offer greater flexibility. At worst, the expensive, go-faux trend signals that women are increasingly dissatisfied with their natural looks.

Certainly, what's inside a woman's head matters more than what sprouts from—or is synthetically attached to—it. But since first impressions are so important in the dating game, we asked men: "Do you prefer au naturale or faux naturale?" Dating Advice From Michelle Obama

"I like natural, and I also like extensions. I'm pretty flexible. Naive, too! Once after a date, I went back to a woman's house, and I was surprised when she took her wig off." – Jed, 42, Youth Educator, White

"I fall in love with what's inside a woman, not what's on top of her head. But who am I to talk? My wife has what they call 'good hair.' Curly, luxurious locks falling down her back." – Bryan, 41, Marketing Consultant, Black

"I dislike all types of hair extensions. It's just so fake. Be proud of what you have and who you are. Weaves are uber-uncool and nonsexy." – Brandon, 26, Cell Phone Technician, Black 3 Secrets To Exuding Sexy

"Doesn't matter. If the weave is the same color as the girl's hair, I can't tell at all unless I pull and it rips off." – Steve, 25, Law Enforcement Officer, White

"I used to believe running your fingers through a fine lady's hair only to come across the tracks was as shocking as The Crying Game's big reveal.

I mean, c'mon, I'd happily reveal that I have a rolled-up sock stuffed into my pants." – Jeff, 26, Editor, Black

"My opinion about weaves is: less is more." – Jay, 39, IT Specialist, Black

"I say 'go for it' as long as you like who's underneath all the hair. At the end of the day, there you are, just you and your comb or brush—looking in a mirror asking, 'Hello, are you under there?'" – Nando, 34, Video Personality, Latino 7 Body Parts Men Love—Just The Way They Are
