How long will it take to grow my mustache back?

Last updated on September 24, 2020


I had a bit of a mustache. My family said it didn’t suit me, so I shaved it off. Now I think I looked better with the mustache. It’s been almost two weeks and it’s only grown back a little bit. Will it grow back? My parents said it’ll take about a month.


When hair is actively growing, it gains about 1/2 inch per month. However, each hair follicle is not active all the time. Since you are just starting to grow facial hair, it may not grow as thickly as an adult; therefore, it takes longer hair for the fewer hair strands to be noticeable. So, yes, your parents are correct that it will be about a month before your mustache is similar to what it was before you shaved it off.
