    So anyone else here have a problem growing serious facial hair? Im 21 and would expect that by now i could have something okay, but no just nasty looking. My brother who is 26 cant either; although when i was younger my dad had a real nice stache. Am i doomed or do i just have to wait til im.... 30?

    There's also sharpies. Or, if you really want, you can take clippings of hair from other parts of your body and make a fake stache...:atoz:

    I'm 40, I still can't grow a mustache that's worth a damn. It has nothing to do with age, and more to do with genetics. My mother's side of the family doomed me to nothing more than a mediocre goatee.

    You're a MAN! You're 40!! :D

    I'm 37 and in the same boat. I have really light facial hair. So I can get by with shaving once a week maybe. So hey bro, you may never be able to grow a mustache.

    You're not missing out on too much, mate.

    Surveys say that women find a little bit of stubble to be the most attractive type of facial hair, if any.

    If it makes you feel any better.

    I can't either, but the real question is... why would you want to?

    so in addition to not being able to rock a stache, I can also look forward to hair loss? Bummer, dude.

    I guess I could grow some kind of mustache, but I don't want one and have never tried one either.

    Mine is thin a bit, too. But that's genetics. Whereas I can grow a pretty wooly neck beard. My chin doesn't grow much hair right in the middle, but that's because I landed on it trying to surf my bike years ago. Scraped the heck out of it...

    How long have you attempted to grow it? I find mine grows in pretty slowly, whereas the beard grows rather quickly. When I want to have a beard or a Van Dyke (as I do know), I give the 'stache a head start.

    I've had a substantial amount of facial hair since 7th grade.

    You've spent a substantially greater amount of time shaving than I have.


    Not jealous. ;)

    Yeah, I'm 20 and mine is still pretty patchy. I don't really think I'd rock much facial hair even if it came in thick and uniform, but still it'd be nice to have the option.

    My sideburns grow in crazy quick, but I can't grow anything more than stubble on the rest of my face.

    Study old Marx Brothers movies. Groucho's moustache was greasepaint.
