Congratulations to Dr. Dave Matz on recent publication

submitted by

Professor Dave Matz (Psychology) recently published an article entitled Women’s Hair as a Cue to Desired Relationship and Parenting Characteristics in The Journal of Social Psychology. The essential findings are that lighter, and to a lesser extent longer, hair on women tends to be associated with perceptions of youth, health, and attractiveness. Furthermore, these characteristics can serve as signals to less easily observable characteristics that are directly related to reproductive and relationship potential. The article has garnered attention from a number of media outlets, including PsyPost and the Daily Mail (U.K.). Please help us congratulate Dr. Matz on this important achievement!
