For some time, the fresh, clean-shaven look was considered the most attractive trend for men, but things have slowly started to swing back to beards and moustaches being the preferred and most trending look.
Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, there’s a deeper, baser reason men tend to grow beards, as various studies have found that beards are linked to men’s dominance in finding a partner.
There is, of course, psychological reasoning behind growing a beard. Throughout history, facial hair in men has been linked to increased confidence as well as being more attractive to women. In some studies, women have even reported they consider men with beards to be the healthiest and best suited to parenting, as they look more mature.
According to Dr Kashmal Kalan, medical director at Alvi Armani Clinic, beards and moustaches are a symbol of masculinity and confidence. As a result, it can come as quite a blow to many men if they find themselves unable to grow even the slightest bit of facial hair, with devastating social and psychological effects.
“This can be very detrimental to a man’s self-esteem, which is why so many supplements and oils are available on the market to help stimulate beard growth,” he explains. “But your ability to grow a beard can usually be traced to genetic factors, which means the chances of oils and supplements having an effect are slim.”
If you struggle with patchy and sparse facial hair growth, a beard transplant may be the way to go. Hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular and, as technology advances, it’s now a more attractive solution for men struggling to grow facial hair.
For example, as a leader in hair and beard transplant services, Alvi Armani offers high-tech beard transplant techniques to boost men’s confidence by giving them back the ability to grow a luscious beard.
The beard hair transplant process involves a medical procedure whereby a surgeon will take hair follicles from the back and sides of your head where the hair is thicker, and transplant them to the affected area. This ensures that after a beard transplant, the hair will grow naturally dense. It is also a place where hair can be extracted safely without the possibility of hair loss.
As one of the top-rated hair transplant clinics globally, Alvi Armani uses the follicular unit extraction method for the best results. They bring the latest tools and technology in hair transplants to South African patients while delivering personalised care to achieve natural results. They are continuously working to transform hair transplants to help men achieve their desired look and embrace their true potential with confidence.
“Whether you are suffering hair loss, a lack of facial hair, or even require a transplant for your eyebrows or eyelashes, the good news is that there are professional, modern medical options available to get you the results and boost of confidence you need,” concludes Dr Kalan.
