Beard Study Shows Heavy Stubble Makes Men Especially Attractive To Women!  According to the huffpost it does!

“Our findings confirm that beardedness affects judgments of male socio-sexual attributes and suggest that an intermediate level of beardedness is most attractive while full-bearded men may be perceived as better fathers who could protect and invest in offspring,” the researchers concluded in the abstract of their study.

Dixson and Brooks hypothesize that facial hair makes men seem more mature and masculine but also more dominant and aggressive, the website of the Australia edition of Men’s Health reported. “Men, judging other men, might be sensitive to the overall level of masculine threat and aggression signaled through full beards,” the researchers wrote, according to the website. “Women, by contrast, may balance…a competitive masculine partner against the costs of mating with a too-masculine partner.”

As to why light stubble loses out to heavy stubble, the researchers believe that there’s “a threshold of density and distribution may be necessary for beards to function as an attractive signal,” Science magazine reported. In other words, it’s just too patchy.
