Beards, polarizing as they may be, are really popular. Just ask the men of New York City.
A new study by German consumer-goods company Braun shows that out of 1,000 New York men surveyed, 67 percent have beards, with the highest percentage living in the Bronx and Brooklyn. Over half of the men say they feel more attractive with a beard (and we can't argue with them on that one.)
According to the survey, it takes 67 days to grow what's considered "the perfect beard," which means there's no time like the present to get a head start for fall.
