The amount of facial hair on a man's face varies from individual to individual, and also between ethnic groups. For example, men from many East Asian, Southeast Asian or West African backgrounds typically have much less facial hair than those of European, Middle Eastern, Central African, or South Asian descent, with Native Americans typically having little to none at all.
