Does facial hair mean that height growth will stop? I am only 15 and will be 16 in 5 months. I have thick sideburns and hair under my chin. Does this mean my height growth stops or does it mean it will just slow down?
Beginning to grow facial hair means you’re in stage 4 of development. In that stage, you have gone through your rapid growth spurt and the rate of your growth is slowing down. By the time you are able to grow a full, thick beard, you will have stopped growing. Of course some, because of the genes they inherit, can never grow a thick beard. That is why there are multiple clues examined to determine what stage of development a person has reached.
