Between 4000 and 40,00 hairs. That includes side-burns, upper lip area, chin, neck and all around the jawline. How many hairs in a particular beard depends how much of one's face is covered, and on hair density factors, too. Some sources reckon the "average" beard contains about 10,000 hairs. The total number of potential beard hairs on a man's face is said to average around 30,000.

Beards grow about 5 inches a year.

Men without beards spend about 800-3000 hours of their lives shaving (10-15 hours a year) on average.
