Science Proves Women Find Men with Beards More Attractive

If you’re a clean-shaven man who has a difficult time finding women to date, you are not alone. A new study proves most women find men with beards more attractive.

The new study published in the Journal of Evolution Biology, asked more than 8,500 women to rate men on their attractiveness as a long-term partner.

A majority of the women rated men as follows:

    • 1. Heavy stubble
    • 2. Full beards
    • 3. Light stubble
            4. Clean-shaven

“Beards may be more attractive to women when considering long-term than short-term relationships as they indicate a male’s ability to successfully compete socially with other males for resources,”the study concluded.

The researchers said beards are associated with a man’s age (wisdom) and masculine social dominance (virility).

Beards have evolved over the last 2,000 years. Even as far back as the Stone Age, beards gave men an advantage with women.

Men with thicker, longer beards were considered sexier because Testosterone (the male sex hormone) stimulates hair follicles to speed beard growth. Women saw beards as symbols of virility and strength (think Samson).

Men with clean-shaven baby faces were not seen as manly, even though there is no scientific evidence that beards equal manliness or virility.

Question: Do you prefer men with beards or clean-shaven?

  1. Good morning Ladies….what it do, what it do??? That’s what I’z be thinking about when I see a man with a beard. 😛 Sheesh!!!


  2. This might sound weird, but I have to see a clean face first! I don’t know how many times I see a guy looking sexy in a bread and then he shaves.


  3. I like beards & clean shaven. I have dated both. But I will say some beards are life saviors for some men cause baby without them…… O_o


  4. I will be buying my man some beard wash and condish for Christmas later today. Bath and Body Works and Shea Moisture make a yummy one!


  5. I don’t mind a beard unless its peezy, scraggly and just long and fluffy as hell…In Philly all these dudes have beards for one reason or another…I just don’t like when 60% of your face is covered by the fur…cant even see ya upper lip cause you got this wolf puzzy on ya face….


  6. I read a study that said that women tend to go for the more masculine looking men (i.e. beards/facial hair etc) during ovulation.

    Personally, I prefer a slim, masculine, bearded, guy… I can’t do anything with a man that’s more feminine than me. 🤷🏽‍♀️


  7. Well I like hair in other places on a man but beards not necessarily. My ex-boyfriend looks ten years younger when he shaves his face.


  8. I don’t care for them lumberjack beards. Plus they hide the dudes features and are unsanitary. A lil light beard, 5 o’clock shadow or goatee is sexy though.


  9. I don’t want no little critters crawling in my mouth while I’m trying to kiss him or worse he is going downtown on me and my hair or coochie juice is in his beard…yuk


  10. When sweaty and wet it looks like it would stink like rotten raw hot dogs.
    I don’t care for beards, but I like Ghost’s clean, neat beard.
