Before puberty, the genital area of both boys and girls has very fine vellus hair, referred to as Tanner stage 1 hair. In response to rising levels of androgens as puberty begins, the skin of the genital area begins to produce thicker, often curlier, hair with a faster growth rate. The onset of pubic hair development is termed pubarche. The change for each hair follicle is relatively abrupt, but the extent of skin which grows androgenic hair gradually increases over several years., pubic hair first appears along the edges of the labia majora and spreads forward to the mons over the next 2 years. By 3 years into puberty roughly the time of menarche for most girls, the pubic triangle is densely filled.

Pubic hair develop from adrenal androgens alone, and can develop even when the ovaries or testes are defective and nonfunctional. See puberty for details.There is little if any difference in the capacity of male and female bodies to grow hair in response to androgens. The obvious sex-dimorphic difference in hair distribution in men and women is primarily a result of differences in the levels of androgen reached as maturity occurs.

Variations

On some people, pubic hair is thick and/or coarse, while on others it may be sparse and/or fine.Pubic hair and axillary hair can vary in color considerably from the hair of the scalp.
