Not on HRT (yet - happening very soon though), but I'm already pretty hairy for someone who is AFAB (thanking my dad's side for that).

I hope to god I don't start balding as fast as my dad, and have a thick head of hair into my 70s like my mom's dad.  And I actually like my feminine hairline and am scared to death of losing it.

I've got a little bit of hair on my chin already.  Not enough to notice unless you're up close, but it's better than nothing at all.

My arms and legs have thick, dark hair already, along with on my fingers and toes, so dear god what'll happen after T?

No back or butt hair yet, but I do have a natural happy trail that I absolutely love.

So far, seeing how my dad and brother's body hair has developed, if I follow in their footsteps, it'll be a lot less chest and back hair, medium facial hair, and a lot of arm and leg hair.  I'll definitely update once the T changes roll around.
Began questioning: Around 2011?
Chose to identify as a genderfluid transman: Around 2014ish
Came out completely: 2017
Began using new name: 2017
Starting HRT: 2018
Complete legal name change: 2018

Pre-T and hairy AF.

1. Top: Fullish. I shave my hairline at the temples to get the "look" right now, and I dig it. I'm going pretty prematurely gray though.

2. Facial hair: I have some darker peach fuzz along my upper lip and a couple of terminal hairs on my chin that you can see closer up.

3. Arms: It's been 10 years since I've seen my arm hair (been shaving that long out of embarrassment) but if my memory serves me right, they were really hairy. I'll probably stop shaving them in the coming months too.

4. Back: None, thank god. Let's hope it stays that way.

5. Legs: Super hairy on my calves. And I mean super hairy. They look like my dad's. Thighs I have some terminal hair growth already as well; mostly in little trails on the fronts of my thighs that meet up with my pubic hair, and up along the outsides.

6. Stomach/chest: A light sprinkling of dark hairs around my bellybutton, but not much in the way of a happy trail.

7. Butt crack: I've had buttcrack hair for years, and have been shaving it for just as long! It's really not that big of a deal. Manscape if you're expecting company, and don't if you don't feel like it.

I'm very interested in what my hair distribution will be once I've started T because according to a number of sources, I currently possess the amount of hair that trans men gain on an average of 6-12 months on hormones.

Haha, interesting indeed, but if you already have high T levels in your system, hairiness might not increase that dramatically then? Except for places where you don't have it already.

1) Top (means head): Yeah I've got all of it. It's always grown in curly so I trim it down to about a 3 at its shortest. Just enough to stop it from curling. Got some greys in there too but those are my wizard hairs.

2) Facial hair (got it already?) I do. I've got a pretty full beard. You can check out my progress thread in my signature. I document it and have studied facial hair growth for several years now.

3) Arms? I've got the standard amount of arm hair. It's a little thicker but I'm not really worried about it.

4) Back hair? (I wonder if anyone is fan of these... ::)): I do have back hair and yes I am a fan of it.

5) Legs? (shave it? love it?) I haven't shaved my legs in well over 10 years and I don't plan to. It comes in thick.

6) Stomach/chest? (sexy or under the razor) I have a lot of hair on my chest. I'm from Italian and Irish descent so the hair grows very well here.

7) Butt crack hair... (squirrel between your buttocks?)  Not a whole lot to report here. Kind of hairy but it's really not too bad.
I've found you, Beast!

Cough. No comment. So not looking forward to this!!! Though might just get used to it little by little and then not even notice. I heard gay guys shave it off. Razoring your butt crack sounds uncomfortable to me, no offence!

Gotta edit this a bit... I just recently noticed that I do have it... ;D
And never noticed before so it seems it doesn't bother me that much then  ;D ;D ;D
(I guess everyone does have it. But just haven't really paid attention before.)

For those interested, there's a scale that was developed for measuring hirsutism in women that may or may not be of interest to us when talking about body hair. It's called the Ferriman-Gallwey scoring system. Here's a NSFW/potentially triggering chart to help measure (it's the best I've found so far, unfortunately): http://image.slidesharecdn.com/hirsutism-140117111510-phpapp01/95/hirsutism-4-638.jpg

I haven't had time for a lot of hair growth yet and I was already pretty hairy from the navel down pre-t, so not much has changed.  I have gotten a little bit of chin hair and the mustache, while still not prominent, has become a bit more visible.  the calves, belly, and chest have filled in more and the thighs and upper abdomen are also starting to show some growth.  haven't noticed anything on the back, shoulders, or arms and no change in head hair.  I'm already hairier than my dad tbh and it looks like it's just gonna keep going in that direction.  works for me, I don't have any desire to be smooth and hairless anywhere.

I am pre-T too and my legs look like monkey legs. I have hair on my arms. I have very bright hair on my lip and cheek.  Also on my toes and fingers.

I have only shaved my lower parts of my legs and arm pits. The rest grows as it wants.

Head: I’d like to keep my hair, it grows really fast. Maybe slow it down a bit. I need to cut it every 4 weeks.

Face: I’d like a beard

Chest: don’t care. Doesn’t bother me much.

Back: prefer not

Arms and legs: already hairy. Can it possibly be more of that? When I shave my legs after a month it looks like I’ve shaved a dog. Ok. Not really a dog. Maybe a monkey. Haha

Stomach: if it grows, it grows.

Butt: I don’t think about that.

Do you like the amount of hair you've gotten? Yup.
You want more or less? More the merrier.
Color? Very, very dark brown ("natural black").
Too scarce? Eh, still filling out.
Thicker than it used to be? Definitely.
You like it? Yup.
Hate it? Only the odd ingrown.
Want it? Yup.
Need it? It's nice.
Were you looking forward to it? Yup.
Did T smash your dreams or deliver? More than I bargained for, but I like it.

1) Top (means head): As anticipated, not fairing so well as the rest. Frontal MBP (like my maternal grandfather).
2) Facial hair: Moving out of 'Wolverine' phase; still filling in more. Neck blends into chest, too.
3) Arms: Delts to hands (no pigmented finger fuzz yet; toes, yes).
4) Back hair: All over.
5) Legs: Still filling out.
6) Stomach/chest: All over.
7) Butt crack hair: Of course lol.


There's basically nowhere that it isn't (apart from where it cannot grow, of course). From sideburns to ankles, it's there and pretty much all congruent. And barring medical necessity, it SHAN'T be 'manscaped'!

I do not mind the 'woolly sweater' one bit. It's actually nice, especially seeing as shirts don't cling to me when I sweat anymore. Who'd have thunk it? It has a practical use/advantage after all. BUT, yes, occasionally does itch and that's not so very nice sans handy backscratcher.

Oh, and I now use a scrub brush instead of washcloths (those are now nearly useless). You gents may also want to try one of them; even on the beard too... that's practically toe-curling.

Developing some chest hairs by the looks of things. They just kind of appeared in the last few weeks, post-surgery. Swear they were not there before at all. They're pale, but I'm happy with them.
