Should You Get a New Look for 2017? Here Are the Amazing Benefits of Growing Different Kinds of Beards


Have you ever thought about growing a beard or some kind of facial hair? The kind of hair on your face can make women think you're smarter or more attractive or even more responsible! Here's why you might want to try on a new look for the new year.


Your face makes a huge difference in your life, whether that's fair or unfair is another story. Researchers found that your facial appearance affects your boss's likelihood of promoting you. If you've been charged with a crime, these experts found that the judge will lessen or lengthen your punishment depending on how your face looks. And there's the obvious – your facial appearance significantly affects your romantic life.

If you want to better your facial appearance, you're probably thinking about plastic surgery, liposuction, or other cosmetic procedures. But did you know there's a cheaper, healthier way to greatly affect how your face looks? Grow a beard! Researchers had many females rate how different kinds of beards affect their perception of a man. Here are the results:

  • Women thought full beards looked aggressive and most manly. They also thought they made a man look older, but more sage-like and mature.
  • But women thought light beards had the most leadership qualities and found them most dominant.
  • Women thought light stubbles were the best for attraction. They said they most preferred men with light stubbles for short- and long-term relationships.

If this research is making you excited to grow facial hair but are feeling anxious about the wait, there are things you can do to help you on your beard journey. Beards don't grow overnight, and if you're going for a full beard, you have to deal with the awkward look of an unripened brush for a few months.

Nuts, soy, and beans. One of the key components of hair is protein. Boosting your protein intake means you'll grow more healthier hair (and build muscles too). Since red meat is linked with cancer, choose vegetable proteins like nuts, soy, and beans.

Vitamins C, E, B. B vitamins and vitamins C and E have all been linked with nourishing your hair. Biotin, which is vitamin B7, is one of the most important hair-growing nutrient – it's even been found to help reverse hair loss.

Try changing your facial appearance by growing facial hair this new year – you could see a drastic change in how people (and government officials) treat you. If you're anxious about the grow wait, try adding hair-nourishing foods to your diet and using a beard trimmer to keep your beard growing healthy without looking unkempt.
