When it comes to growing facial hair, not every man has what it takes. But whether you sport a full beard or you can only manage a wispy ‘stache, flaunting facial hair at some point in time seems to be a rite of passage for most men. A recent beard-related study conducted by Behavioral Ecology has piqued the interest of many, from beard-haters to those who can’t get enough facial fuzz. Interestingly enough, the study found that of women with minimal pop culture exposure, the majority surveyed find men to be less attractive when sporting a full face of hair. However, this same group of women also perceived bearded men as garnering higher respect and being more powerful than clean-shaven men.
