Q: When does an average male face start having hair? When does pubic hair start to grow and armpit hair? What age?
A: Unfortunately there is no predefined schedule for the development of facial hair, pubic hair, armpit hair, and other body hair.
These are all determined by your nutritional health and hormone levels, as well as genetics and the way that these factors affect your passage into puberty.
In boys, puberty tends to occur between the ages of 13 and 15. However, it could begin as early as
10 or 11, or as late as 16 or 17. It really does all depend on the individual. Unlike with girls, whose pubescent development can be
categorized into stages (called tanner stages) and become readily apparent when the breasts begin to bud, boys have no clear-cut sign
that puberty has begun. In many cases, the first signs of puberty for boys will be the development of body hair in places previously devoid of hair, but not always.
When a boy is in his pubescent stage he will experience the following:
• accelerated growth, particularly in height
• broadening of the shoulders
• enlargement of the penis, scrotum and testicles as they mature
• changes and or deepening of the voice as the larynx elongates
• growth of hair in the pubic area, armpits, face and growth and or
thickening of the hair on the rest of the body
• nocturnal emissions (nighttime ejaculations)
Iím sorry that I canít give you an age-specific guide for when the body of a male will develop hair
in specific areas, but thatís just not the way the human body works. The development of the hair doesnít even occur in a specific
order. Some boys will develop pubic hair first, while others will see armpit hair or hair forming on the chest before anything else. I all depends on the boy in question.
