Question
Are there any psychologists that are specialized in topics of beauty and attraction? I had some questions but the social psychologists on here doesn't focus on beauty. Any websites full of beauty experts?

Answer
Hi, James, I don't know of any websites where there are "experts" on beauty. I do know that there is some psychological research in the area. My understanding of the research is that people mostly agree on who is beautiful vs. not. One factor I recall is symmetry. e.g., people whose facial parts (e.g., eyes) are lined up equidistantly from center-line are considered to be more beautiful.
