The beard is there to help you gentlemen, so let it grow. It’ll make you look smarter and get more ladies. I mean c’mon, just look at this guys!
What’s the purpose of growing a beard?
Here are 8 reasons to grow a beard, all proven by science.
#1. Throughout history, beards have conferred prestige. Ancient philosophers always retained their beards as a badge of their profession and the ancient Egyptians wore fake metallic beards in front of their faces to mark special occasions, such as solar eclipses. These hairpieces, called postiches, adorned the faces of men and women.
#2. Bearded men are more attractive. Women find full bearded men to be two thirds more attractive than clean shaven men.
#3. Beards have magic powers!
A decent beard can transform a pasty nerd into a rugged hunk.
Or some random dude into the director of Star Wars!
If you grow it the right way, beards transform you into a higher being. And help you win an Oscar.

#5. Beards make you look more bad-ass!
