The proof is in, Men do not grow beards to just attract a mate, or to hide facial features or the shape of their face. The truth is that all these new beard wearers are signaling each other in a language that only other beard wearers can understand.
When a man sports a beard, he is actually signaling to men, yes sending a clear and definitive signal. Researchers are saying that when we see men paying attention to their appearance, it typically showed that they were doing it to impress a potential partner. But research proves otherwise, stating that the majority of men sporting a beard are doing so to improve their standing among other men. This is seen in the current styles that can adapt themselves easily into today’s corporate world giving off an air of intelligence, understanding, and confidence.
Women on the other hand have become less interested in beards than they were hundreds of years ago. In the early 1900s, women would take more notice of a well-dressed man with a beard as it not only symbolized importance and confidence but qualified his financial status as beards were not cheap to maintain. Current studies have found that the majority of women like a bit or even a lot of facial hair on men today. Now, it seems there is not a grey area here, as women seem to either like facial or want to see their men clean-shaven.
With the lack of reliable evidence, we can’t just conclude that beards evolved because women were attracted to them, or that men feel more confident when they have a beard. We have to look at the trends and realize that now more than ever men are looking to express themselves in ways that allow them to have facial hair at a time when just months ago, having a beard or a facial hairstyle was not always an option.
Communicating to others that they are not only confident in their choice to grow a beard but that they are willing to exercise their right to do so, seems to be the Real Reasons Men are wearing beards.
