Tired of settling for a wispy, scraggly facial thatch? Then take heart, beardless brethren: There's hope for you yet. Of course, we can't promise that every man can grow a bushy and lustrous beard, but here are a few simple tips that will help you grow more facial hair—or at least put in your best effort.
Sometimes the mustache maketh the man, and sometimes the razor refines him. Few men can pull off both looks, but that doesn't stop most of us from trying. While you probably recognize these bearded dudes and their famous characters, we bet you haven't seen their other groomed states.
The best thing about beards, foamy-moustache funtimes aside, is their impermanence. No two days of bearding are ever the same. So for those feeling in need of an image change, facial hair is a sound investment.

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.
Everyone covets the opportunity to show off a long and luxurious beard that will give them the sexy, manly look that they desire. Anyone looking for a way to grow their beard thicker and longer would likely love to just pop a pill in their mouth every morning and watch their beard grow longer and longer with each passing day. After all, slow and steady wins the race, right?
If you are unable to grow a beard on you face it might be because your body is not producing a chemical known as dihydrotestosterone, which is created from testosterone. This is not a medical matter, there is no medication that can remedy this issue or natural treatments that can encourage hair growth in the face. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics and production of it is determined by genetics.
Many people dream of growing a thick, luxurious beard or a stylish mustache. Unfortunately, some men can't seem to grow more than a few thin patches. While you can't change genetic causes of poor or uneven growth, there are several ways you can help encourage your natural facial hair to grow in thicker and fuller.
This news may sound like a sweet siren song to men around the world looking for an easy solution to their stubble struggles, but is there really any truth to it? Regardless of when or how you shave, your facial hair will always grow at approximately the same rate: about one-quarter-inch per month. In their teenage years, boys experience a spike in testosterone, which results in that unfortunate phase of patchy, unreliable facial hair growth that many young men experience.
