Summary
LIGO data has been used to test the no-hair theorem, suggesting that if black holes have hair, it is 'soft'.
A recent paper analyzing LIGO data suggests - though not conclusively - that the no-hair theorem likely holds, with implication for the information paradox and I was wondering where a confirmed no-hair outcome leaves us with regards going beyond the Standard Model?

I was wondering where a confirmed no-hair outcome leaves us with regards going beyond the Standard Model?
The no-hair theorem is a classical theorem, and the Standard Model is quantum field theory, so I'm not sure this paper's result has anything at all to do with going beyond the Standard Model. What connection do you think there is?
