Beard is making its way back into fashion. Bearded hipsters are becoming more and more common. And that’s not all. A recent study conducted for the Journal of Evolutionary Biology, asked 8,500 women to rate men with and without beards for their boyfriend potential.
The results were astonishing. All of them preferred their men with facial hair.

The highest ratings for general attractiveness was given to heavy stubble. It was followed by full beards and light stubble.

According to the study, when it comes to long-term relationships, women find bearded men more attractive as they indicate a male’s ability to successfully compete socially with other males for resources.
Throw away your razors, boys. You heard the beard theory, right?
