Generally speaking, there are two categories of women: those who like men with a little scruff, and those who don’t.
Me – well, let’s just say I’m a switch hitter, because truly, I can go both ways. (Side note: are goatees still popular? It’s been a while since I’ve seen a guy sport one.) I mean, there are advantages to both – scruffy guys tend to look more manly, with a devil-may-care attitude; suave guys show that a little personal grooming goes a long way, and, you don’t have to endure beard-burn during an epic make out session.
Now, it’s a tough job but *someone* had to do it: research the internet for “scruffy celebrity hotties”. Can you guess who made the top of the list? Did you know that “Somerhalder” means the incredibly hot one in Latin? Okay I’m just pulling your leg. Or not. Cause he’s incredibly hot, obvi (fanning myself in a dramatic fashion).
Alas, if I have to make a choice, I do prefer a clean-shaven man. I find it sexy, sophisticated and most of all, a sign of impeccable grooming. And I’m not alone: a study, which was published in the journal Behavioral Ecology, queried women from New Zealand and Canada to determine their preferences on men’s facial hair. Over 200 women were presented with pictures of clean-shaven and bearded men. The results showed that women found the clean-shaven men significantly more attractive.
Okay, so I’ve hardly made it fair for men by using Brad Pitt as the poster child for a clean-shaven dude. And, if I’m telling the truth, in a Brad Pitt – Ian Somerhalder showdown, I don’t want to be making a judgement on the level of desirability. Still, I have to give ol’ Brad the edge – and extra points for a kissably soft cheek.
