Facial Hair

As we age the facial hair and the color of facial hair change. Hair grows more bushy and like the hair on the head the color of facial hair often also turns gray. People know that these are signs of ageing. But it is also very easy to change these age-revealing signals whether they are about bushy hair or graying hair.

That we age is revealed to ourselves and to the rest of the world through changes in our body, our skin, and in our hair, including men's facial hair. In the Age-revealing Facial Hair Overview you can learn what signals different types of hair have.

In the Facial Hair Adjustment Guidelines there are suggestions on what to do in order to change the age-revealing hair signals.

Age-revealing Facial Hair Overview

Sideburns Has influence on signalling age when unfashionable and/or gray
Beards Has influence on signalling age when unfashionable and/or gray

Use the Color Selection Guidelines to find out which color to use when coloring facial hair.

Color Selection Guidelines

Facial hair Most Natural Looking Color Suggestions
Beard One or two tones lighter or darker than hair on head
Sideburn Same color or one tone lighter as hair on head
Eyebrow Same as hair on head or one or two tones lighter or darker than hair on head
Eyelashes (if graying) Brown unless hair on head is black


Color will go back to natural color after some time. This takes as long time as it takes for the hair to grow. On eyebrows and eyelashes colored hair will fall off and be replaced with new non-coloared hair. For eyelashes this will take 1-2 months; for eyebrows 2-3 months or longer.
