Mustaches make you creepier

Actually, it really IS science. A study had 351 women rate attractiveness of 10 men in the following stages of facial hair: clean shaven, light stubble (5 days unshaven), heavy stubble (10 days unshaven), and fully bearded.

Heavy stubble was viewed as the most attractive, while clean-shaven and fully bearded tied. Light stubble was not viewed as attractive, as it was often too patchy.

And worth mentioning: 5 Year Impact Factor: 4,249.

Also, they used MANova for statistics:-) very topic appropriate.

Link to the full paper.

Happy Friday,

Science is Freaky Sometimes

Watch a bunch of stuff fizzle, pop, expand, and explode all in the name of science.
