Attractiveness of faces of different age
The colour photos of newborns, 7-year-old children, and 20-year-old students were used as stimuli. The observers were asked to categorize sex and estimate attractiveness level of each face. The experiment showed the high concurrence of observers' judgments of attractiveness of stimuli faces. Unlike the experiments with adult faces, no correlations was found between attractiveness and level of sex expression in faces. Girls' faces were estimated as more attractive than boys' faces in all ages. The images of girls (and newborn and 7-year-old) with probability of sex categorization at about 60% were called the most attractive.
