New study reveals women like men with heavy facial stubble over other styles

Report says "heavy" stubble is most preferred

A new report released in the May issue of academic journal, Evolution and Human Behavior, says "heavy" facial stubble on men is what women find most attractive.

The study looked at 351 women and 177 heterosexual men and had them rate men at four different stages of facial hair growth.

Ladies ranked the men with the 10-day stubble as the most attractive.

The journal says the "heavy stubble conveys manliness and maturity-though not as overwhelmingly aggressive as a full grown beard."
