A new study shows men who have full beards are more attractive than men who are clean-shaven.

The study was published in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology.

Researched asked more than 8,500 women to rate men on their attractiveness as a long-term romantic partner, Yahoo News reported.

Here’s how the facial hair rated:

  1. Heavy stubble (10 days)
  2. Full beards
  3. Light stubble
  4. Clean-shaven

“Beards may be more attractive to women when considering long‐term than short‐term relationships as they indicate a male’s ability to successfully compete socially with other males for resources,” the study concluded.

Beards, the researchers said, are associated with a man’s age and masculine social dominance.
