The research was conducted by Barnaby Dixson and Paul Vasey from New Zealand and Canada respectively, and they tried to find out the perception of a bearded men. Researchers took photographs of 19 men with full beards and asked them to...shave it all off. They took more photos so they compare the reaction of some 200 different women to the same individual with and without facial hair.
