New study concludes that hideous people are earning just as much as gorgeous people

Bad news for average looking employees: if you want to earn more money it helps to be either awful to look at or a flawless beauty.

A new study published in the Journal of Business and Psychology set out to dispute the “beauty premium” — the idea that attractive people earn more in the workplace. The study measured the physical attractiveness and income of 20,745 people between the ages of 16 and 29 on a five-point scale, reports Yahoo, taking into account health, intelligence, and personality

While the experiment found that more attractive workers did earn more, horribly unattractive workers always earned way more than unattractive respondents and sometimes more than average-looking or attractive respondents.

But it turns out these people weren’t earning more based on looks necessarily, but because they were also healthier, more intelligent and with better personalities.

So rather than rushing to the salon, maybe read a book and work on your small talk. [Yahoo]
