Visible beard hair on a woman is called a lady’s beard. Beard growth can start either at puberty or after menopause. Facial hair on women is rather undesirable. Centuries ago, women with beards were considered curious and were put on display at fairs. Even today they attract ridicule. Those affected find it difficult to cope, hide and feel ashamed of their appearance.
You can have the hair removed by waxing, epilation or a diode laser, but you should be careful and confide in a professional, because the skin on the face is particularly sensitive. There is also the so-called hirsutism, a hormonally caused excessive hair growth, which can be treated as a medical problem. In cases of very strong hair growth, doctors also prescribe the pill, which then intervenes in the hormone balance and stops the excessive growth.
For men, facial hair is part of their everyday life. Either they wear a beard and it is part of the expression of their personality or they shave every day. Not infrequently, they see it as a symbol of their masculinity. Due to a release of hormones, beard growth begins towards the end of male puberty. At first, a light down appears on the upper lip, before the first hairs appear at the level of the ears. Only then do the hairs on the chin and the so-called sideburns on the cheeks grow.
It takes about 4-5 years until a real beard grows and daily shaving or beard trimming is part of everyday life. The amount of hair depends partly on the hormone testosterone, but it is also genetically controlled. Regular shaving has no influence on this. Rather, growth increases over the course of life due to rising hormones.
With beards, which come in many forms, it is a matter of taste whether a man decides to have one or not. However, it can also be part of the culture or religion. In many cultures, religious motives play an important role. This is true, for example, in most Islamic countries, where the beard is part of masculinity.
