Conan’s Beard: To Shave or Not To Shave?

From Science of Relationships:

Before Conan O’Brien allows Will Ferrell to shave his beard, perhaps he should know that research shows that females rate males with a full beard as more attractive, masculine, socially mature, dominant, and aggressive than clean-shaven men. Conan should tell Will Ferrell to leave his “la raza” at home.
