While recent years have seen the seemingly unstoppable rise of male grooming, 85% of the opposite sex said that hirsute suits them better. Waxing and excessive shaving got the thumbs down, with girls opting for a "real man" instead.

Only 8% of women told pillow manufacturer Sound Asleep that they liked their men groomed to perfection, narrowly beating the 7% who preferred to see a werewolf-like quantity of hair.

Women in the North East, in particular, were firm fans of "manly men", with 97% wanting their blokes to let it grow. Welsh women were also fans of bear-like men, with 91% preferring a 1970s-style chest and hairy legs over a hairless hunk.

East Midlands women were the biggest fans of "manscaping", with 15% opting for shaven men.

The survey of 3,000 British women was carried out by OnePoll.com.
