It’s a common stereotype that men with facial hair can’t get high paying jobs, but recent research suggest that Wall Street’s elite members might very well be sporting facial hair. In a study put out by Quicken and The American Mustache Institute, 2,000 men were polled about their income and spending habits. The men were divided into three categories: men with beards, men with mustaches, and men who were clean shaven.

The results of the study indicated that men with mustaches earned an average of 8.2% more than men with beards, and 4.3% more than men who were clean shaven. The study suggests that contrary to the popular stereotype, facial hair does not negatively affect income.
