PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – So much for stubble burn.

A new study shows that a man’s facial hair is directly linked to his perceived attractiveness.

During the study, which was published in the May issue of Evolution and Human Behavior, researchers took photos of 10 men at four different stages of beard growth.

The researchers then had 351 women and 177 heterosexual men study the photos and rate each face for health, parenting ability, attractiveness and masculinity.
