Think men with facial hair look hot? Think Shahid Kapoor, Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman look sexy with a beard? Perhaps it’s time you changed that thought. A new study has revealed that men sporting a beard are unfaithful to their partner, steal things and indulge in fight. In a study conducted by Eva, a social networking app, researchers surveyed 2,000 people to determine attitudes towards facial hair and found 47% of men with facial hair had cheated on their partner, compared to 20% clean-shaven men, The Independent reports.
In addition, they found that bearded men were likelier to be caught up in a brawl and 40% of men with beards claimed to have stolen something. Researchers asked the women whether they preferred bearded men and 65% claimed that they would never consider getting romantically involved with a beard-wearer.
Eva’s Jens Wilkhom, who’s a fashion photographer, said she has noticed that the attitudes were shifting with regard to long beards and moustaches, adding it definitely seemed that women seem to prefer the clean shaven look and fashion would respond to that.
