This is by far one of the most common questions I get asked! How long does it take to grow a beard? Or, why isn't my beard fully in, its been 2 weeks?? So let's quickly dig in to how long beards take to grow!
Well, its a simple answer at its core. The reality is it takes a minimum of 3 months (13 weeks) to grow a decent length beard. 3 months is the amount of time needed to grow a reasonable beard length that will give good coverage and can be trimmed slightly to style.
So, a surprisingly long time! This is why patience is so important for guys growing beards. 3 months is a long time to not trim or cut the facial hair!
But why does it take this long?
All the different hairs on the face grow at different speeds, you need a good bit of time for the slower growing hairs to get some length and bulk up the beard a bit.
You also need the length so that your beard can experience 'the drop' this is when the weight of the hair is enough to start being pulled down by gravity - this means you don't just have short hairs growing straight out all over the place!
So be patient and wait out the 3 months before making any decisions about whether you can grow a decent beard or not! You'd be amazed how much better a 3 month beard looks over a 2 month beard. And guys who never thought they could grow a beard will also be amazed how good a beard can look if you just give it the necessary 3 months!
Takehome: It takes 3 months to grow a beard!
