If you've ever wondered what a beard says about the man wearing it, then listen up. A new study from the University of New South Wales has found that women perceive men with fuller beards as more masculine and aggressive than men who don't sport facial hair. But don't worry if you're not quite ready for full-on Hulk status; there are plenty of other ways to convey masculinity without sprouting out all over your face.
If a guy has a beard, it may mean that he is older, wiser and ready to settle down and start a family. A beard can also mean that the man is confident in his masculinity and masculinity means strength and leadership.
The beard says: "I am not afraid of being judged for who I am." The beard says: "I know what my strengths are." The beard says: "I accept myself for who I am." The beard says: "I do not need makeup or plastic surgery to attract women."
The presence of facial hair may make guys seem more manly.
- Women are attracted to men with beards. Studies show that women prefer guys with a full face of facial hair, so if you're looking for more dates, grow out your beard.
- Men with beards can be perceived as less feminine than guys without beards, since the presence of facial hair may make guys seem more manly.
- Beards can make a man look older and wiser. A scruffy five o'clock shadow on an otherwise clean-shaven face can give off an air of maturity and wisdom that some women find attractive (and others find intimidating).
- Beards may make a man seem more aggressive and dominant. It's not clear why this is true—but it could have something to do with the fact that men have thicker skin than women do in certain areas around their faces (the cheeks), which means their facial hair will grow faster there too!
Women are attracted to beards because they project maturity, strength and good hygiene.
Men who are interested in growing a beard but don’t know what to do with it, should consider their partners. Women are attracted to beards because they project maturity, strength and good hygiene. A beard can make a man look more masculine, thereby attracting women. Many men believe that women like guys with beards because they look older or more mature than their clean-shaven counterparts. Others say that the bushy hair on their face makes them seem stronger than someone who doesn’t have facial hair—especially if that person is young or hasn’t grown into his body yet.
There is also evidence indicating that women feel safer with men who have beards because they project maturity and strength—traits that help protect against aggressors looking for an easy target (i.e., those without mustaches). The same goes for hygiene: Men without facial hair may not take care of themselves as well as those who do sport whiskers throughout the day; therefore they might smell worse than their bearded counterparts too! That said though...men shouldn't expect everyone around them all of
Beards can have different associations depending on their length.
The length of your beard is important because it’s a sign of masculinity, aggressiveness and dominant personality traits.
Long beards are associated with kindness, sensitivity and creativity.
Medium length beards are associated with intelligence, competence and strength.
Short beards suggest that the wearer has no ambition or drive; they may also signal a lack of self-esteem if they're too short or too long.
It may be tempting to judge other people based on their appearance, but it’s important to remember that there’s more than meets the eye. So before you decide whether or not a guy is worth dating based on his facial hair style alone (or if he should shave off those whiskers), consider all the other traits that make him who he is today!
