Researchers at University of New South Wales conducted the study on a group of 500 men and women who were shown photographs of ten young men who sported various lengths of facial hair, from clean shaven to fully bearded.

The researchers found that both men and women were in agreement that the hairier a man was the more masculine he appeared and light stubble looked least healthy.

However while men believed that a full beard or a heavy stubble looked macho, women found men with heavy stubble attractive, but believed that those who sported a full beard had 'lower romantic attachment' though they also thought that men with beard had excellent parenting potential.
