New Survey says British Women Prefer Facial Hair on a Man

goatstubble.jpgFrom My Celebrity Fashion (who knew?) comes a new survey about women's attitudes toward facial hair on men:

"With the start of the famous Movember charity moustache month approaching, we thought it would be interesting to look into how women really feel about facial hair on men. Despite it being somewhat of a rumour that women aren't a fan of overly hairy men; our results proved quite the opposite, with the majority of women preferring both facial and bodily hair on a man, to a man with a smoother image.

This can probably be explained by going back to instinct, above all. Men with more testosterone were more likely to succeed as hunter/gatherers, and were as a result rather hairy. Luckily for hairy blokes, the likes of Beckham and Johnny Depp have made facial hair more than fashionable in recent years; so all men can don that tache with pride!"

According to the press release, in the sample of 1,832 women aged 18 and over:

  • 76% said that they found a man with facial hair more masculine
  • 54% stated that they preferred a man with facial hair
  • 32% said they preferred a clean shaven look
  • 51% preferred a hairy chest to smooth pecs
  • 63% favored all-over stubble on a man
  • 12% preferred a beard
  • 19% admitted that they preferred a moustache
  • 6% favored goatees

I dunno. What do you think?
