“Facial hair can be hit or miss when it comes to attracting a lover. Some people really love the lumberjack look, while others like a clean-shaven man. Although it ultimately depends on how men like their own facial hair to look, it can affect their dating game,” stated.

Other findings of the survey include:  

  • On average, men with facial hair in one or more dating profile picture received three times more matches than those with no such imagery
  • When asked what type of facial hair is preferred, 65% reported a little scruff or five o’clock shadow was the most attractive
  • Although many singles like facial hair, 77% shared it is a turn off if the beard or mustache isn’t properly groomed
  • 45% of those surveyed reported that even though they enjoy facial hair, they don’t like when a man only has a mustache; they prefer a beard and mustache combination
  • Less than 5% of those surveyed shared that they absolutely will not date someone with facial hair

For facial hair newbies, recommended following the below tips for a “successful journey through dating with a beard and mustache”.

  • Keep it clean and groomed: Facial hair can add a great flair to someone’s being, however, it is important to make sure you keep it groomed and clean to help enhance your look. Just like your hair, you want it to be styled properly because it can really make or break the way you present yourself. Keeping a comb on your person will come in handy.
  • Don’t continuously touch it: Having a beard is fun and something that men like to show off. During a date, try your best to not play with or touch your beard as it can be distracting and might even cause your date to lose interest. Pay extra attention if you’re on a dinner date because you don’t want to be playing with your hair while eating.
  • Know your style: While some facial hair might enhance a man’s features, it can also hide them. When participating in No Shave November, keep an eye on how you look with your facial hair; maybe you look better with only a mustache, or a long beard might be what suits you best.
