Do These 15 Celebs Look Hotter With Or Without Beards? Take Your Pick And Vote


Ryan Gosling Beard vs. No Beard

A scientific study  found that men who have beards are perceived as generally more attractive than men who do not. If you’ve been to Williamsburg, Brooklyn or Portland, Oregon or anywhere there are young, hip people, you’ll find this study to be wildly accurate. According to the study conducted by researchers Barnaby Dixson and Robert Brooks, “Women judged faces with heavy stubble as most attractive and heavy beards, light stubble and clean-shaven faces as similarly less attractive. In contrast, men rated full beards and heavy stubble as most attractive, followed closely by clean-shaven and light stubble as least attractive. Men and women rated full beards highest for parenting ability and healthiness.”

So the ladies like a pretty full beard, while men prefer the fullest  cave-manliest. Purrrrrrrrr. We decided to conduct our own scientific study right here on CollegeCandy. We found some of the most famous, celebrity hotties clean shaved and bearded. We want you to vote. Which do you prefer: beards or no beards! Let the polls begin.
