The senior economists, who conducted the study, said that men with below-average looks faced an uphill battle in the office, with ugliness reducing a man's earnings by 26 percent compared to an average-looking worker.

Co-author Andrew Leigh, former economics professor at the Australian National University, told the Telegraph that beauty could be a double-edged sword for women.

He said that some people still believe that good looks and intelligence are incompatible in women so a good-looking lady can't be very productive.
