When I'm walking around, it doesn't SEEM like two out of every three guys has a mustache . . . or a beard . . . or, tragically, a soul patch. But according to a new survey, 64% of American men say they have facial hair.
--50% say their father had a mustache, beard, or both. Which means facial hair is MORE popular today than it was three, four, or five decades ago. Including the '70s. Somehow.
--40% of men say the top reason they grow their facial hair is that it makes them feel more confident. 36% say it makes them feel more attractive . . . 15% feel more sophisticated . . . and 9% feel more intelligent.
--And American women are down with facial hair too. 80% say they like facial hair on a guy . . . that's the highest number of any of the eight countries in the survey.
--Women voted a goatee as the best type of facial hair. And, of course, the soul patch came in last.
