Waiting for a beard to grow in can feel a lot like watching grass grow. The younger you are, the longer it may take you to hit your beard goals. Many men will sport the beginnings of a mustache and a few sprigs of chin hair years before the rest of their beard starts to surface. Others may continue to have sparse areas of growth until their mid-to-late 20s or even later.
Sorry to say, not all are worthy. But where should you start, and how do you know if all-out bearded glory is for you? Like busy patterns for a bulkier frame and baseball caps for a thinning thatch, facial hair is great for hiding imperfections such as uneven skin pigmentation and acne scars. Do women actually like beards? Apparently so.
Take a walk on any city street and chances are you'll see a few men with long, flowing beards. It seems like these men can grow out their beards just by thinking about it. A five o'clock shadow quickly grows into a thin mustache and beard and then, a few days later, a lumberjack is born. While some men have no trouble at all cultivating a garden of hair beneath their noses, many others run into a stumbling block.
Facial hair is hair grown on the face , usually on the chin, cheeks, and upper lip region. It is typically a secondary sex characteristic of human males. Men typically start developing facial hair in the later years of puberty or adolescence , between seventeen and twenty years of age, and most do not finish developing a full adult beard until their early twenties or later. Women are also capable of developing facial hair, especially after menopause , though typically significantly less than men. Men may style their facial hair into beards , moustaches , goatees or sideburns ; others completely shave their facial hair.
