While bushy beards were once hallmark features of London’s edgy hipsters, facial hair is slowly but surely becoming more and more mainstream.
Now, a new survey has revealed that many men are so desperate for the ‘perfect beard’ that they’d be willing to give up sex for a year to achieve it.
The survey, by OnePoll on behalf of Honest Amish, asked 2,000 participants about their views on facial hair, and exactly what they’d be willing do to achieve it.
The results revealed that 40% of male participants would spend a night in prison for better facial hair, while the same proportion would give up coffee for a full year.
Meanwhile, 18% said they’d be willing to shave their head if it meant having the perfect beard.
The survey also revealed that men seem to care more about their facial hair than women, with 73% of male participants saying they believe facial hair makes them more attractive, compared to just 63% of female participants.
In terms of beard style, a full but short beard came in at number one (22%), followed by medium stubble (19%).
While it seems that many men are desperate for the perfect beard, a recent study suggests that facial hair could come with some disgusting side effects.
A study last year by Switzerland’s Hirslanded Clinic revealed that men with beards carry more germs than dogs.
In the study, the team sampled the beards of 18 men, as well as the necks of 30 dogs.
The analysis revealed that nearly half (7) of the beards sampled contained germs known to be dangerous to human health.
Meanwhile, all 18 men had high microbial counts in their beards, while just 23 of the dogs did so.
