Beards is the hair that grows on the jaw, chin, upper lip, lower lip, cheeks, and neck of humans and some non-human animals.
In humans, usually pubescent or adult males are able to grow beards. Some women with hirsutism, a hormonal condition of excessive hairiness, may also develop a beard.
Having a beard is typically a secondary sex characteristic of human males.
Men typically start developing facial hair in the later stages of puberty or adolescence, around fifteen years of age, and most do not finish developing a full adult beard until around eighteen or later.
Men may style their facial hair into beards, moustaches, goatees or sideburns. Furthermore, some men completely shave their facial hair and this is referred to as being “clean-shaven”.
