Bald Face Beats a Beard?

A recent study done by scientists in New Zealand and Canada shows that, while a bearded man commands more immediate respect than his clean-shaven brethren, women actually prefer for men not to have any facial hair. Apparently, facial hair makes a man seem angrier, older, and more threatening. Hmm.

While the study does seem to be legitimate, a look at who was surveyed — women from New Zealand — and who the subjects were — men from New Zealand and Samoa — raises questions, most notably "Is it possible that there are cultural differences in how beards are perceived?"

Basically, would American women (African-American women specifically) respond differently to the survey the study was based on?
