Beards can be an attractive look on a man. Sometimes growing one can cause problems.
There are some men who are lucky and they can grow beards quite easily without any patches. If you are finding you are having difficulty growing a beard, you may want to consider shaving it off and continuing to go clean-shaven.
The other option is that you may be able to grow a goatee that is like a half-beard. This often looks quite attractive on a man too.
Especially when a man is experiencing hair loss, growing facial hair could complement the lack of hair on top of the head and make for a stunning look.
