Where does Beard inheritance come from?

Myth: Beard inheritance (growth pattern, density, colour, etc.) comes from the mother’s side.


Fact: Beard inheritance comes from both the mother and father. The myth comes from the belief that the “baldness gene” comes from the mother/mum and therefore so do the beard genes. Experts have posted before showing this to be false as well as lots of anecdotal evidence. So your beard inheritance could have come from your mum or dad!
