Alright ladies, I need some serious help. I’ve been looking at scientific studies regarding this question for a while now but they all seem to contradict each other!
For example, this study says women are most attracted to men with heavy stubble, even though women and men both agreed that men with full beards were more masculine than their lacking counterparts.
But this article cites a study indicating that women prefer the clean shaven look much more than a beard.
And then you have this article which says women rated beards or stubble as more attractive than the clean shaven look – BUT much of the attraction factor depended on the current style. When facial hair was in style, women were attractred to clean shaven men because it was more rare (and vice versa).
What’s a guy to do?
This is where you come in. Take a look at the following pictures of actor Ben Affleck. Based on facial hair, which photo are you most attracted to? Don’t forget to explain your opinion in the comments section below.
