10 Shocking Things You Didn’t Know About Beards

Beards Were Grown To Mourn Friends’ Passing

During Roman times, men went out of their way to grow beards if they were in mourning. It’s not known exactly why or how this tradition started, but we can certainly understand that shaving is the last thing you want to do if you’ve just lost someone close to you.

Beards Can Leave You Dateless

Studies have shown that while women find guys with beards to be of a higher class, that doesn’t mean they actually want to date them. Clean shaven men get more dates than those with facial hair. While no one is sure why this happens, if you’ve ever seen a guy with a really strange or scraggly beard, you’ll notice most people, men and women will stay as far away from him as possible.
