What’s the first thing a man notices about a woman? Nope, it’s not her outfit or her cup size (shocking, we know). It’s actually her hair.

According to a survey taken by Zoosk.com, three-quarters of men admit they are likely to compliment a woman on her hairstyle, and results show that the hairstyle they find the sexiest of all is simple — down and straight got 38 percent of the votes, while down and curly registered as a close second at 33 percent. Rounding out the favorites were a sophisticated up-do and a simple ponytail, which tied at 13 percent.

"Keeping hush could be a mistake: nearly one-quarter of women say that they expect to be complimented on a hairstyle they’ve spent time on, and while 71 per cent don’t expect a new romantic interest to notice their hair, they will gladly accept the admiration," says Jane Barrett, director of marketing at Zoosk.

But as vocal as men are about what they like on a woman, they are equally opinionated about what they don’t like. Greasy hair and too much product were men's top pet peeves when it came to hair turn-offs.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
