Red Bearded Men, We Know Who You Can Blame It On!

Along your journey of growing a glorious beard, you might have noticed that the hair on your face doesn't always match up colour-wise with what's on your head.

We're here, with the help of science, to answer one of modern gentleman's greatest mysteries; Why are some beards a different colour to the rest of their hair?

Hair colour, which is determined by different types of melanin and genetics, is inherited from parents, grandparents and even great, great grandparents. As a result, a gentleman's body can express a wide range of hair colour combinations throughout. With the rest of your body where you have hair, genes dominate hair colour - but with your beard this is not the case.

So, if you have yourself a red beard, you finally have permission to blame it on someone in your family tree. Or you can thank them silently!

One of the most eligible bachelors in the world is a ginger, Prince Harry and look at the kind of attention he gets. Although his ring finger may be bare, he is committed to the gorgeous Meghan Markle. And if you're not a red bearded man and feeling a bit left out, you're still winning at life just because you’re bearded! Research shows that full beards are attractive to women searching for long-term relationships. The researchers believe beards make men seem more "formidable"— in a red-blooded, strong, and strapping kind of way.

We salute you, red bearded gents :-)
