* 2018 survey source: Wahl partnered with market research leader ORC International in 2018 to conduct a year-long online survey for beard and mustache positivity. The[DS1]  survey revealed most U.S. women prefer a man with facial hair over a clean-shaven face (58 percent vs. 42 percent, respectively). Millennial women showed a particular panache with a 71 percent preference. In general, 65 percent of women find facial hair attractive, and 57 percent describe men with facial hair as masculine or handsome. As far as style, stubble topped the preference list, and a well-groomed beard was a close second. Supportive research also included an Online CARAVAN Omnibus survey of 502 adult women throughout the United States. Completed interviews were weighted by several Census variables including age and geographic region, to ensure a reliable and accurate representation of the total U.S. population.
