Men love beards. At least, that's what I think since I'm a man, and I love me some good ol facial hair. But it turns out, science confirms that while a beard might make you look older and of higher status, it also makes you less attractive to women. (sigh).
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.
Women, both Europeans and Polynesians said that men looked significantly attractive when clean shaven. They reported that bearded men looked older and of higher social status. When men looked at the bearded men in photos, they reported that they seem more aggressive.
Nick Neave, a psychologist from Northumbria University, explained to the Daily Mail that a man's ability to grow a beard is nothing to do with making them attractive to women. "[M]ales' faces and bodies are probably mostly designed to fend off other males and what females like is neither here nor there," he explained.
