A recent study by London-based Journal of Evolutionary Biology showed the result of over 8500 women finding shaved men to be more attractive than those clean-shaved.
The results were astonishing: every single woman preferred their men with facial hair, reports UNB.
Heavy stubble received the highest ratings for general attractiveness, followed by full beards and light stubble.
The researchers said that typically male features, such as a strong jawline, signal health and high testosterone levels, which may not be what women are looking for in a long-term partner.
The study states that 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.
