Is it a fact or a myth? Another common myth is people believe that Native Americans cut off their beard until the hair permanently stops growing but the credibility of the source is yet to be questioned. There are Native American men who rock a beard style while there are men who would prefer to get a clean shave. It all comes down to your preference. Native American beard is said to be different as compared to Americans who belong to European, Spanish, Chinese and African descent that have beards.

To nominate someone else as a Quality Contributor, message the mods. Native Americans generally didn't have beards. Do we know what they thought of the bearded and mustachioed Europeans and their decedents? Also, I had assumed that Native Americans genetically could not grow facial hair, but this, according to brief internet search, is a myth.
Facts About Native American Beard: The Untold Truth
There are different myths surrounding Native American facial hair genetics. Wondering why some people grow a full and thick beard while others might only grow a thin and sparse beard or none at all? The element of genetics plays a significant role in determining whether you can grow a beard or not. If members of your family lineage had no beard up to your dad, chances are high that you may also not grow any beard and there is nothing you can do about it.
I don't know who wrote this. I don't particularly like the wording. Nevertheless, I think the writer means to infer that our culture, and all modern Western culures, like to make this claim. Women simply aren't supposed to have moustaches, and if they do, they secretly pluck out the hairs with tweezers. Here, again, as on the Moustache page, we have some pictures that could be improved upon.
