Haha. Alot of it may have to do with color as well. I knwo that I look like I have no leg hair, but I actually have alot but it is the same color as my skin so you can't really tell. My facial hair is black though, so even a few hours after shaving you can see it again.
I know iranians, armenians, greeks, turks, south slavs are usually very hairy.
Whic caucasian sub races, ethnic groups, grow less facial hair?
Is not being able to grow facial hair more common in northern europeans?
Is there a physical reasin for not being able to grow facial hair? something abot hormones?
Here some examples of white tennis players who cant grow significant facial hair
In general Turks are not "very" hairy, especially compared to other ethnic groups living in Turkey. Also, for example Kurds generally hits puberty at 12-13 years old while for Turks average is 15-16, and that is also related to hairiness I guess.
They are certainly exception rather than the rule.
BTW, I think people of Northern European descent are very hairy, actually I saw a woman (probably Irish) with a full-grown beard but I can't find a picture of her now, she even has children, supposedly she was shaving daily when she was married, but when she got divorced she stopped caring. Imagine having a mom with a beard.

Are you going to do it or do you want to keep throwing around insults?
Edit: And I don't really understand what you're saying. Of course they're not caucasoid. That was my point.
I said it because I think the way you addressed me was rude and showed no tact, t'sall.
I shouldn't have to prove it. Anyone who knows anything about the Ainu know that they are famous for their hairiness, not only in relationship to the Mongoloids, but to the Caucasoids they were often erroneously associated with. Look at pictures of the old Australoid-looking Ainu the Japanese depicted and you'll get the picture of why I think they are the hairiest.
I think body hair is much distuinguishable than facial hair. For example most of the kurds have thick and much body hair(including back and neck) like armenians. I think If hairy gen can find It can be a good marker for races Most of the Turks have only hairy chest(like 't' shape).
