A Little Facial Hair Goes a Long Way

jonhammbeard.jpg

"A study in the 1970s and another one three years ago come to similar conclusions: Women are more attracted to, and more likely to develop a long or short-term relationship with, men with light beards or stubble. They also find men with full beards more aggressive and mature, but also the least attractive. Men with no facial hair were rated the second-least attractive, but also least likely romantic partners.

In other words, a little facial hair goes a long way.

Science says it's true, but what about anecdotally?"

The Beard is Back, Baby

From Irish Independent:

"We've been scrubbed, shaved, plucked and waxed within an inch of our lives. We have been told we should look more like choirboys than Hell's Angels. Our masculinity has been drowned in a tidal wave of metrosexual conformity.

But now we are fighting back. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and a growing number of men are going in pursuit of the hirsute and proudly declaring -- the beard is back, baby."

Facial Hair Activism: Grow a beard for Belgium

belgium.jpg
Facial hair activism at its finest!

"One of Belgium's best-known actors, Benoit Poelvoorde, has urged his fellow citizens not to shave again until the country finally forms a government.

Poelvoorde, star of black comedy Man Bites Dog and costume drama Coco Before Chanel, made his appeal on Belgian TV.

A caretaker government has been running Belgium since June, setting a post-war record for a period without government."
