How would you compliment a girl's hair?

Okay without sounding too stupid... how would you tell a girl you like her new haircut? Saying "I like your new haircut" I think sounds a little cheesy. But then I am not sure what more there really is to say...

Did this very thing yesterday upon noticing a coworker's new haircut/color: "Oh wow - I really like your hair!"

She seem pleased with the comment.

"Hey, by the way, that haircut looks really great on you."

Lest you're concerned, I think using the word "haircut" to refer to anything a woman has done to her hair sufficiently establishes your "straight" cred.

I don't see anything wrong with saying "I love your new hair" and saying it with sincerity. It's worked for me.

As a woman I have to say it makes me feel great when a guy friend comments "your hair looks great", "nice hair!", etc. Just recently I had dinner with an old friend of mine, and in the middle of the conversation, out of the blue he said "You know, I gotta say I love your hairstyle. I think it looks great"; and that just totally made my evening. I honestly liked the guy more after his hair comments, so I can attest that hair flattery works!

I found this one highly amusing.

Honestly, I would just tell her I like her new haircut.

Hey, your hair colour and style looks kinda different from what I've seen last time? I think they look great! -- I actually said this and she went blushing.

Long as it's not out of context, "your hair looks awesome" or w/e fits your age group. I would never think anyone was gay for a hair compliment, even if they wanted to borrow my pink fudge and herbal essences or something cliche. People are too paranoid.

It may have worked last time, but it's definitely not safe. If you think that hairstyle and colour look great, and different from last time, then she may wonder how you thought she looked before. Maybe horrible?

Being British, I do it something like this:

"Ah, new haircut?"

"Yup"

"Looks good."

"Ta"

"No prob."

*walk off*

If I gushed over how fantastic it was, the target of the compliment would probably think I was taking the mick.

Same way you compliment clothes:

"Hair's nice. Is it new?"

step 1. wait until she's asleep.
step 2. remove her scalp* (ensuring that the hair remains attached)
step 3. shave your own hair and secure newly created wig to your head.
step 4. sit by her bed until she wakes up.
step 4.5. stifle screams
step 5. tell her you thought it looked so good that you just had to have it.
step 6. ...you're on your own from here.

* you may wish to administer local or general anaesthetic
