In brief: Maybe but it depends

Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (dht), which is androgenic - makes you more masculine.
Dht is what stimulates male pattern body hair as well as male pattern baldness. Body & scalp hair also depend upon genetics, such as your family & ethnicity. In other words, if everyone in your family has lots of body hair, you will most likely have lots, too. But so can excess testosterone.
