There’s a new study that shows men with beards make hot dads. Yep, guys. Science has proven what your wife has been telling you all along: Women like beards.
In the experiment men and women judged attractiveness, health, masculinity, and parenting abilities based on photographs of men who were clean-shaven, lightly or heavily stubbled, and fully bearded. Women judged faces with heavy stubble as most attractive. Heavy beards, light stubble, and clean-shaven faces were judged as less attractive.
However, men with full beards received the highest rankings for parenting ability and healthiness. Personally, I’ve never eyed a beard and thought, “Mmmm. Healthy.” But you just can’t argue with scientific results: Big beard=Good baby daddy.
