Maybe it won't: We'll see by age 20. Around 5% of men, myself included, are genetically unable to grow chest hair or a decent beard. Many women prefer it, and guys like us usually don't go bald. Joe Kinnaman, Larry Bird, Muhammad Ali and Paul Newman are male superstars with smooth faces. Enjoy what you've got, and remember that any guy looks good if, and only if, he is physically fit.

Hair: About 20% of men do not have hair follicles on their face and thus cannot grow beards. If you do not have hair there you cannot grow a beard.
