It all depends on how it looks on the woman. Hairstyles look awesome on some women, terrible on others. My stbx had naturally curly long blonde hair when we met. Other women were always jealous but gues what? She wanted straight hair! She cut it really short when we had kids and I thought it looked great on her. But she let it grow back out despite my pleas.
I LOVE short hair on the right woman. Seeing a sexy neck begging to be kissed is a real turn-on for me. You could put short blonde hair on a fence post and I'd be attracted to it.

I think this is very common, I have pretty thick /bushy hair and I always wished it was "straight"... I envied all those women who could grow it down to thier butts nice & silky. Even looked into straightening it myself for a time but got confused & tired of trying to figure out the process , gave up the idea.
My husband goes on about my "wild sex hair" all the time, he loves "the look" -it goes kinda haywire...mornings can be pretty entertaining... so what the hell... gotta please the man! I like it a little long, I push it's unruliness to the sides of my face - with hair combs.
One nice thing about my hair is.. if it isn't cut right, it never seems to show, I have even taken those thinning sheers to it myself... and well... nobody can seem to tell, he says it still looks good.
Some women really do rock short hair, like you say, keeper, if the face is right for it. I have an acquaintance who has super short hair, almost a man's buzz cut, and it looks fabulous on her. She's gorgeous in it.
One mistake I think some women make it thinking because their hair is long, the length is all that matters. I see lots of women with that long, down-to-the-butt, uneven ends hippie hair, and it looks good on no woman, imo. Long hair has to be cut and styled well to look good.
I saw a lady the other day, and she was very heavy, probably 5'4 and I bet over 300lbs, but she was wearing very nice clothes and her hair was gorgeous - long and straight, down to her lower back, almost butt length, shaped just perfectly and it was shiny and soft looking, it made her attractive enough for me to notice (even though I'm not into the chub).
I am a long brunette hair type. Although I like blondes (I am one), the brunette color attracts me more. Of course, I would want any future wife/girlfriend to style their hair in a way that they enjoy. They are, after all, stuck with themselves 24/7.
My husband loves me with long hair. I like long hair too, but my hair is thick and curly and gets really knotted and tangled very easily and is a total pain to manage. I recently donated 10" of my hair to make wigs for kids with cancer. My husband winced when he saw that my hair was the same length as his (this was in February). My mother-in-law was pretty horrified too. I hated my hair cut as well, though was glad to donate it for a good cause. Over the last few months it has grown a bit and is now almost chin length. We are both a lot happier, and he is starting to think my short hair is kinda cute. He gives me an affectionate smile, and is like "you look almost normal now". (Uh, thanks honey... I guess. He's just teasing though, as I can see the love in his eyes.) I think he and I will compromise on a medium length cut for me in the future, where it is long enough, but not that long to keep getting tangled and unmanageable. Conversely, my husband loves to grow his hair out a bit (like past his ears), but I hate that werewolf look and am thrilled when he cuts it short (which he does for me).
I like longer hair. Just past the shoulders is fine. Any longer and I just seem to get clumsy with her hair. I end up pulling it or leaning on it. So medium long I guess? I don't ever want her to cut it. My wife is on the downhill slide to 50 and still has long beautiful hair. I love it.
