Ever wondered what beard length is considered to be more SEEEEEXXXXXXYYYYY? 

Well according to new research, it's the lighter stubble that girls really like!

The Journal of Evolutionary Biology published an experiment that found which kind of beard was most attractive to females.

The study claimed that men with a lighter stubble are ranked as the "most attractive" overall. 

However... it then went on to say that men with a 'bushy beard' are more likely to be an attractive candidate for a long term relationship, whereas those with stubble are best suited to short-term flings. 

And for those of you who can't grow a beard at all, not all hope is lost...  we'veheard that cougars are really into the fresh look!
