Apparently the latest fashion trend for men is to flaunt a large fuzzy beard.
Lots of celebs are jumping on the beardy bandwagon, and even David Beckham is following the fashion trend rather than instigating it.

Do men think beards make them more sexy and appealing to women?
Is it a way to advertise ones masculinity?
According to a survey by Lynx (the spray stuff that is supposed to make women throw themselves at your feet) there is a division of opinion on the subject of beards.
63% of men polled reckoned that beards made them look more manly, and attractive.
Whereas 92% of women said they preferred clean shaven men.
95% of women did not want to be kissed by a beardy bloke.

So what is going on here?
Are men staging a manly rebellion against women by growing breads?
What do you think about beards – do you love them or hate them?

I seem to associate beards with older men so currently do not find them attractive. However, maybe this is something that will come in time!

I am shocked that 92% of women like clean chaven men, meaning only 8% appreciate the stubble?! I must be in the minorioty!!

Whenever I see a voluminous beard I think of 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. Ugh
