Attractiveness is not fixed. That is, it can change over time, and by tactics as tiny as standing up straight. It’s also subjective, but there are some things — beards and confidence among them — that more women (the group these particular studies focused on) than not consider attractive in men.

1. Grow A Beard (Maybe)

Women may find bearded men more attractive, studies suggest (awesome). But this depends on whether a woman’s father had a beard (weird). Scientists suspect this may have something to do with sexual imprinting, or the theory that future mate preferences are formed at a young age and are modeled after parents.
